not really sure where to post but I need some advice: I just got gifted a 1000€ gift card from Matchesfashion as a late graduation gift (having a single young aunt has its perks) but I am really clueless on what I need to buy. I was thinking on splurging them on a bag but there are some statement fall/winter items that I need in my clothes so I don’t know about that. Can someone who is familiar into luxury shopping help me out?
If I don’t get the bag, I was thinking: a leather blazer, good pair of jeans, some cachemire sweaters and a good pair of nude boots.

Leather blazer will age well and can go with anything (I’ve literally seen girls in London slip one on on top of their sports bra and shorts and look elegant). Cashmere sweaters are hard to look after in 4-5 years time, but if you go for one choose a neutral colour.

A bag could be a good investment but go with a bag that’s been popular for 10+ years (classic) rather than one that’s trendy.

You could also invest in some classic heels, or an iconic jumper like the Gucci one Princess Diana wore.

Aside from jewellery and investment bags from Hermes, my best purchase was a MaxMara camel coat with fur hood. I get so many compliments, they repair it for free, and it goes with everything.

I bought these boots online because the deal was great and they're actual leather. I had been looking for a pair as such and they fit like a glove with the shaft being small enough and not flopping around too loosely. Actually warm and comfy too with good grippy soles (without being too chunky for my taste) for challenging icy winters. In love!

Now that it’s officially boots & wool pants season, I’m starting laser hair removal on my legs and I’m so excited about it. Bought 6 monthly sessions for ~$760 all together and I should be done by the time spring rolls around! After only 1 session I already notice a significant difference.

So i’ve spend quite a lot of $$$ this last week and wanted to share the stuff I got! I’m especially in love with the doc martens and dune inspired ear cuff

dresses retail for $108 but Unif had a bogo sale so I got two (so overpriced though lol)

L’école Des Femmes dress retails for $199 but got it on depop for $80

And lastly I got a piece from Chrishabana which makes really cool jewelry. They did a collab with the film Dune to make a Dune inspired collection which Grimes wore to the met gala (the harkonnen mask she wore was $1500, would’ve loved that too but that’s a tad out of my budget lol)

The piece i got is called the wrath ear cuff and was $117

After having been using the same computer for far more than its useful life, I finally decided to invest in buying a MacBook. The new MacBook Air 2020 in gold, and I am so very happy about it! It's so fast and everything I do immediately! I am very happy to have bought it!

It's def an investment! I got a Macbook Air in 2015-16 and it's still going strong.

I’ve bought so many new workout sets to celebrate my 10+ lbs loss and commitment to working out every day for nearly 4 months. I’ve been wearing the same workout clothes and not minding it, but it is exciting to get new pieces! My husband got home while I was working out in the blue and black set and.. loved it

I bought this Faux Fur-detail Biker Jacket today at H&M.
I've been looking at jackets like this for a while now but I was hesitant about buying it, primarily because my closet is generally full of jackets. But since it's the holidays, I thought, why not?

I got myself some weight loss equipment for my next travel:
A travel sized scale. Also helpful for baggage.

And measuring tape, all black:

H105e2d63f75e43e684a93dd32a4982c1V.jpg
Feels quite motivating eventhough these things are literally basics. But my old tape has been broken for a while now and was a weird mix of oldschool colours that just didn't look nice, so an all black one is more exciting to use.
Since I plan on traveling for quite a long time these are quite helpful.

I was stressed because of some paperwork and organising- basically everyone involved gave me useless incorrect answers so that I had to reschedule things or didn't have enought time to make things right again..... Chaos!
So, as a form of retail therapy I got myself some sexy:

Honey Birdette and Agent Provocateur.
Please DO ignore the models' bodies though.. But I feel like especially the second bra will look sooo cute on a tiny upper body.

Now there's still a dior bra on my wishlist but I'll stop my materialism for today.

I just bought my first pair of Doc Martens. They are called the 2976 Max.

docs.jpg

I was so surprised by how comfortable they actually are.

They feel really special to me, because I have never seen them on anyone else where I live. Everyone seems to have either the standard model, the 1460?, or the Jadon's.

Plus I love platform shoes. :luv:

Do you mind sharing where you’re getting the laser hair removal done? I’ve decided I finally want to do it for myself (honestly don’t know why I haven’t done it yet) so looking for good recs in NYC

Yes, I’m doing it at Satori Laser! I think their prices may have risen sliiiightly since I purchased the package, but you can also find huge deals for certain locations on Groupon.
