Heyyy everyone and happy Hump Day! I hope all of you are having a fabulous day so far! I decided to take a study break to talk to you guys about my new All Black Everything clothing and shoe obsessions, so take a look at these beauties and then we’ll discuss!
^^^ So gorg! And as usual, here’s the breakdown of each of these items and where they were purchased:
- Black sheer shirt dress: Forever 21
- Black denim and cloth jacket: American Eagle Outfitters
- Black knee high gladiator sandals: Carlos Santana, Macy’s
I am so helplessly in love with all of these new pieces that I really don’t even know where to begin, but I guess I’ll start by talking about my new shirt dress from Forever 21. During me and Kristen’s last trip to Belden Village mall, I wanted to spend some time in Forever 21 because I freaking love it and they don’t have one at Summit Mall which is usually the mall I go to. Unfortunately, Kristen doesn’t share my love for the store, so whenever we go there I have to be quick so we can get in and get out. If you’re familiar with the layout of Forever 21, then you’ll know just how difficult it is to be quick in that store! But as I sped through the racks of clothing my eyes locked in on this cool and edgy new piece and I just knew that it had to be mine. I’ve seriously never seen anything like it before and it looks So. Freaking. AWESOME! The first half of the top is completely solid, so you don’t have to worry about your bra being visible, which is nice. But then about an inch after the bust line, the fabric becomes this gorgeous flowing sheer gauze coming down in two panels, one in the front and one in the back. It’s so fabulous because it shows off my side tattoo since there’s no material coming down on either side. I feel like a super model in this get up and it’s nothing short of amazing. I really like wearing this piece over a pair of black super skinnies with my beloved Vera Wang wedges. I’m also looking forward to pairing this shirt/dress hybrid with body con skirts and shorts underneath as well. So fierce. After I found this little beauty at Forever 21, Kristen and I went to American Eagle for some more shopping fun. The jacket that I purchased from there has a bit of a back story: In the beginning of March this jacket was brand new at the store and I instantly fell in love with it. It was SO cute and it fit like a glove. Unfortunately, I was not in love with the seventy-five dollar price, so I had to pass. BUT I vowed to myself that as soon as my dream jacket went on sale, that it would be mine. And that day happened a few weeks ago! While in American Eagle, I scurried back to the sale section and was SO happy to see my beloved jacket hanging up there. There were only two left – one small (which is my size) and an extra large. I immediately grabbed the size small, because I knew that it was meant to be since there was only my size left amongst the extra large. Wanna know the best part? The amazing price I got for it! The jacket was marked down to $59.99 and then they took half off of that so I ended up paying thirty dollars for an originally seventy-five dollar jacket! Such a steal! My final All Black Everything obsession is the GORGEOUS knee high lace up gladiator sandals that Kristen got me for my birthday. You guys need to know that I’ve wanted a pair of sandals like this for over a year now, but due to circumstances like the pairs I want being sold out online or the outrageous prices of some of them, I could just never get my hands on one. It really killed me! During a shopping trip with Kristen, I pointed out a pair of mid calf gladiator sandals at Journey’s that were cute and my sister instantly shot down my comment with “ew those are ugly….but do you like them in black or brown?” So I knew right then and there that she had to have gotten me a pair for my birthday! Needless to say, I freaked out when Kristen presented me with the huge red box that they came in because I knew that underneath that lovely bright red lid was a pair of gladiator sandals with my name on them…and I was so glad I was right! The pair that Kristen picked out for me are seriously sublime. For one, they’re SO beautiful. For two, they’re black, lace up, knee high, AND wedged – who could ask for anything more? And for three, I love Carlos Santana brand shoes, so she really outdid herself. I am so in love and I really just CAN’T EVEN!!!
So there you have it, my latest and greatest All Black Everything Obsessions! Who’s your Woman Crush Wednesday? What was your most recent purchase that you’re in love with? I wanna hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
