I've been trying to save money lately so I haven't been making many clothing purchases since I'm satisfied with what I currently own and there aren't many places to go to at the moment.
However, I did finally invested in a pair of Airpods Pro last week since they were about 30% off. I also restocked on some Deciem products that I was running low on and purchased a few face masks on Cyber Monday. It's tempting to spend money on Ssense right now with their sale, but I just ask myself if it's more of a "need" or if it's just a "want". Definitely trying to become more of a conscious buyer.

Just bought this black velvet dress with mesh sleeves from Zara for The Holidays season !

Picture on the model (Adut Akech) from their website :

On me (sorry for the bad quality) :
I got it in XS but it is still a bit to big around the waist as well as the chest. It was the one which fitted the better though.

You look gorgeous, especially your delicate shoulders! Not to de-rail the thread, but what are you and others planning on doing party-wise this year? I only bought two dresses this year, one for my immediate family's formal xmas dinner and one for new year, but I'm not really going to any parties, so I didn't get to shop for any cute dresses. Where is everyone going?

Thank you so much :kiss:
I'm going to celebrate Christmas with my close family as every year, we will be 10 which are what is recommended by the French Government (thanks life my close family is pretty small !).
For the NYE I'm not sure yet, it will also be my birthday so I wanted my closest friends to come celebrating both the New Year and my birthday but due to the Covid situation one of them isn't sure yet if she can come... Even though we would be only 4 or 5... I will see what I end up doing, in the end I might cancel my small gathering and either go to an other friend's party or just stay with my parents if they finally stay at home. Hopefully I'm going to party so I can show off my dress (as well as my legs, waist and shoulders :whistling:).

But everyone, remember to avoid taking any risks and to be very careful !

That dress is stunning, and so are your legs.
But, umm, why is the wall behind you oddly warped? Photoshop accident, much? :badgirl:

Ahah I can see why you suspect the Photoshop use, but no that is just what the bad quality because I cropped the picture for some privacy reasons makes my shadow look like.
To be honest, if I photoshopped the pic, I would have been stupid to let the left side of my waist like that...

But I take your suspicion as a compliment so thanks :kiss:

I found these on sale. I don't really need another pair of skinny jeans but I just can't resist it when they fit so well :luv:

Btw, I love being the skinniest person in the fitting room having no problem sliding into the jeans while the other people needs to make some kind of jumping-while-sucking-in-the-belly-dance :whistling:

This will be my last impulse purchase for a long time: a white, lacey midi-length dress from H&M. It ended up being way too oversized (I should’ve known better ordering from H&M :facepalm:) but I think it could be saved if I get the waist taken in.

I admit, the dress looks quite juvenile, but I removed the slip and thought the dress looked better without it. It would look cute for spring/summer, or a themed photoshoot :lol:

I would wear it oversized, without the slip, and with a silk black unlined triangle bra & matching underwear underneath (or high waisted/one piece if that's too risque for you.) Plus chunky black boots of course.

I should enlist you as my personal stylist :lol: I like your edgier take on fashion. If I'm not careful, sometimes I dress like a Forever21 mannequin from 2011-2013 :hyper:

I just impulse bought this Vivienne Westwood necklace after seeing a picture of it on tumblr and I just HAD to have it. I’m usually not someone who obsesses over her jewelry but this was an exception and i’m dying for it to arrive :luv:. Crossing my fingers the one i bought was authentic because i saw so many fake listings and i’m paranoid about getting scammed lol. What do you guys think? 21ABDDE8-F355-4600-9B41-2864C54C98A2.png

Oh my gosh it’s gorgeous @faerieluss :luv: I also just purchased two vintage necklaces, a choker from Vivienne Westwood and Dior necklace respectively, with the prize money I got from the TB’s Angels Contest! Both had many good reviews and claimed to be genuine pieces, so I have my fingers crossed.

I got them both from Etsy! If you search up “Vintage Dior necklace” both come up, it just takes a while to look through fake/knockoff listings and find the real deal. The choker was actually on sale, I think there should be another day or so until it’s back to the original price :flower:

I read it too late and I had already bought it (the Vivienne Westwood one) on eBay but it seems genuine as well. Thank you so so much though and fingers crossed for both of us 😹
If not I can always return it!

I desperately needed warm boots as winter suddenly (at least suddenly to me) set in. I only have "pretty" office winter shoes (aka chelsea boots) so I actually had a good excuse to buy those. I love the colour 😍

I've been searching for a Tiffany cuff bracelet to go with my beaded one, and managed to thrift one today (for 160USD! No sales tax in my country.) that's in A condition and that is actually small enough for my wrist. IMG_2305.JPG

Couldn't resist to get this All Saints mega oversized parka cause it was 60% discount. I love good deals.

Burgundy Tory Burch ankle boots - I fell in love with these the moment I saw them.
Given the fact that they are truly expensive plus I do not buy “new” things anymore I have found and bought them used/secondhand on a website:luvluv:

(pic is from Vestiaire, but I actually got them from another website, it’s just this one is more accurate)
