Shopping Small

Cardigan: secondhand Rachel Comey, Black Jacket: Rodebjer, Shirt: vintage, Jeans: UO, Boots: Rachel Comey

Lately I’ve been finding myself gravitating towards less mainstream brands and stores whenever I feel the need to go shopping. Whether it’s in store or online I really appreciate having a mix of high end and local designer clothes to choose from rather than the usual chain store brands.

Even when I’m in the mood to just window shop I would rather wander around a neighborhood like Williamsburg and find random boutiques than go to H&M or Zara in a mall. Maybe this has something to do with the fact that I’ve been making an effort to save up for classic investment pieces and then building up the rest of my wardrobe with vintage/independent designers. And let's face it, nobody wants to have the exact same items in their closet as the girl next to them.

Since I enjoy online shopping as much as the next twenty-something girl; I want to share with you guys a contest being held on The prize is a $1000 giftcard to

Jacket: Theory, Sweater: UO, Jeans: seven, Boots: Rachel Comey

As you can see I wasn't kidding when I said I've been into the color olive recently. I even decided to mix two clashing shades in one outfit lol.

I've been wanting a pair of Rachel Comey boots after repeatedly seeing them on the blog Blushing Ambition and I finally found a pair on sale. I highly recommend this style if you're considering getting a pair. They are super comfortable and well made.

Over the weekend I went to Williamsburg and picked up this Theory jacket ($40), a Rachel Comey cardigan ($30), and my favorite buy of the day...a pair of fleece lined leggings ($7). I love getting a good deal secondhand.
