A week in outfits #4

This week’s outfits are very fall oriented, lots of darker, rich colors and pieces from my fall capsule wardrobe.  I think I have my tops set and ready to go, so now I just need to figure out the bottoms.  My capsule wardrobe is starting later than I anticipated because of the crazy weather here, but like Caroline from Un-Fancy said, the good thing about this challenge is it’s flexible, there’re no set rules and you can create your wardrobe and schedule in a way that suits you best.

I’m really excited about doing the capsule wardrobe challenge because I think it will help me tame my bad shopping habits.  I feel like it has improved already but we’ll see how going 3 months without shopping will do to me after this fall challenge… I hope I survived and succeed *fingers crossed*.

A week in outfits #4

No hesitation

Capture

Ladies and gents, the J.Crew Novelty Quilted Puffer Vest is back in stock!!  For those of you that don’t know what I’m talking about, it’s this gorgeous vest that popped up on the fashion radar about 2 years ago.  It was worn in outfit posts everywhere and you can not go through a Women’s Fashion page on Pinterest without seeing at least one pin about it.  It was every girl’s dream vest.

I saw it on the J.Crew website back then but hesitated on purchasing because it was a little pricey for me at the time (I was still in college back then), so I waited for a while before I decide to purchase.  But I was too late, it was sold out everywhere.  I tried so hard looking for it, constantly checking J.Crew website hoping it would be back in stock, going to different stores asking them to dig through their stock room, I even went on eBay but the ones on there were at least 2x the original price (not going to lie I thought about buying it, but my inner conscience stopped me). I was sad, exhausted, and defeated.

Today I was browsing through Bloglovin and came across the {the one that got away} post by Comfortably Chic (thank you thank you thank you for posting), at first I thought it was just another post about how beautiful this vest is and how it’s no longer available…  But I was very very wrong and I couldn’t be happier!  This vest is back in stock on J.Crew Factory!  I squealed when I saw the news and immediately went on to the website to ordered myself one.

For those of you that have been dreaming about this vest for the past 2 years, go grab it while it’s still in stock (all sizes are available right now), it is not on sale right now but who knows how long they’ll be available for.  Of course you can always take your chances and play the waiting game for a sale on J.Crew Factory, but all I have to say to the ones that are brave enough to do so is…  May the odds be ever in your favor.

Happy Friday everyone!
