Just pulled the trigger on a Cartier Panthere watch. Got it on First Dibs for a pretty reasonable price.

Omg ok so excited for these recent purchases ive made! I have lots of clothes coming in but I’ll narrow it down to these two dresses I copped from maliciousdesigns on depop!

I would highly recommend purchasing from her because she custom makes these dresses, very skinny/petite friendly!

I bought a RED Valentino leather bracelet in pink, similar to this one except mine is a more notable lilac-pink and it has a little golden RED Valentino charm sewn into the bow.

and also a piece of silk and gossamer Agent Provocateur lingerie with two silk bows on the hips.

Not the usual fashion purchase post but - I just panic bought three books on Amazon because I've heard deliveries are delayed and I'm running out of reading material! :run: I bought Stoner (by John Williams), Three Women (by Lisa Taddeo), and A Gentleman in Moscow (by Amor Towles).
Apart from that, I am seriously tempted to buy these:

I know I'm a bit late on this one so this is potentially unwelcomed but I had a pair of Common Projects boots and despite their price, they were easily some of the worst quality shoes I had ever owned. The leather was easy to crease in a very unattractive way, the pull tabs frayed within a couple months of wear and the sole became very easily damaged. They're beautiful in brand new shape and condition in pictures but I just thought I might give some advice as they're not inexpensive shoes lol.

@Tinyportia the Acne boots are wonderful.

I just found this 2019 Jacquemus dress on a secondhand site. Bought it immediately since I regret not buying it last year (perfect for showing off a xylo!)

I've been looking for some green dresses lately and ordered the Gavin dress from Reformation. Unfortunately, the fit wasn't great (I always struggle getting a proper fit in the bust), and the quality was pretty bad for the price.

Has anyone ordered any of the linen stuff from Reformation, is the quality any better?

I actually got a stunning green silk dress last year from Reformation, but sadly its not available anymore. Definitely would recommend buying something out of silk, since it always looks classy, chic and it's worth the price! Maybe you could try ordering the Fonda Dress from Reformation?

Bought this amazing jacket from Allsaints on Sale and it looks even better in person! Definitely gonna wear it on colder days here in Copenhagen!

Since I've always been really into Interior Design, I obviously enjoy getting nice pieces for my apartment and slowly building my own collection of timeless and chic pieces.
I ordered this little couch table from Gubi, which match perfectly with my other furniture!

Last but not least, I treated myself with some really aesthetically pleasing dining ware, which will be shipped from NYC. IT's a Japanese brand called Kaneko Khoyo, which are making beautiful handmade pieces. Decided to get a couple of different sizing white plates of the Rinka Collection. Can't wait for them to arrive! :luv:

I bought this belt by Jacquemus

I’m also thinking about this tiny bag. I would use it as more of an outfit accessory, as it’s certainly too small to use as an actual bag.

I bought these Cult Gaia earrings

and this Eugenia Kim headband

I’m trying not to shop too much right now, but I am choosing to support my favourite small / independent designers.

Accessories are my favourite things to buy. I love adding a few new, statement pieces. It reinvents your whole wardrobe!

I love these earrings, but I am TERRIFIED of getting saggy earlobes (does anyone know what I'm talking about?) that I always see on older women who have too heavy diamond earrings
Well you could try to not wear them for too long. I usually only wear my heavy earrings to go out and take them off once I get home, my earlobes seem to be doing just fine. It could also be because older women may get saggy skin so it may not all be completely due to the heavy earrings (It would be wise of them to try to wear lighter earrings).

I've been shopping a lot recently mainly from online thrift and vintage stores which alleviate my guilt a little bit. Less waste and keeping small businesses afloat one purchase at a time. :naughty:

Frame Le Flare de Françoise jeans. Hoping that I can wear it out for the summer. Unlikely I know, but a girl can dream.

Tom Ford Era Gucci dress. I'm obsessed with Tom Ford and this will be my third piece from his Gucci epoch.

Got Hanne's dress here which is Alexander Wang -- she's got such great style that seeing her wearing it partly convinced me to get it. Also great motivation to look as good as her.

Also bought an uber cute vintage Nina Ricci mod dress from the 60s, similar to this one. It's so so so short and form fitting -- definitely meant only for skinnies to wear.

Bought these two tops from Zara online during lockdown, they are for girls but I loved the simple floral design and the ribbed material has lots of stretch anyway. Suspect many adults have been buying the tops for themselves as the larger sizes are all sold out 😅 I got the 9 years which fits my 172cm self just fine, a bit more snug round the bust than I would normally like but I love it. Might return the blue one since I don't really need two of them though. zara top blue.jpgzara top red.jpg

I'm laughing at myself because I usually never buy loungewear or pyjamas but this quarantine has changed me. I want to look cute while chilling at home, no more dad's old t-shirts!
I know I am late to the party... but I was wondering what's your feedback on the asos tall leggings?
I buy most if my sportswear from asos but it's either Nike or Onlyplay, not the actual 4505 brand.
Those leggings have been in my wishlist for ages and I'm thinking of going for it. (I disike leggings that are supposed to be athletic but have barely any stretch to them...)

Pros :
- inexpensive
- perfect length (99% of leggings from any brand look short and awkward on me)
- very high waisted
- the material is nice and stretchy but not see-through

Cons :
- the seam on the crotch area was already loose when I got them and started to slowly rip from the first wear...
- if you look closely it's pretty visible they're poorly made (the stitching is weird and a little crooked)

If you or anyone else has any recommendations on good quality, long, high-waisted leggings I'd really appreciate it!

Thank you fot the reply! I think I'll give it a go since I DO need a new pair of leggings.

I'm only 174 but I have a short torso so normal leggings are short on me and I always go for the tall option when I find it.

My ALL TIME favorite legging are the following by Only Play. I love everything about them... The fit, the length, the stretch they have to them

Also good buys are the following two. They're not "tall" but have a good enough length (for me at least). I think I like the Nike one a bit better that the south Beach pair, but both very decent buys
