'A Blinking Idiot'


Since my metabolism has seemed to slow down (damn you age. Damn you), I've had to give away most of my work pants because they've shrunk in size...ahem... These Alice & Olivia High waist pants are perfect for work because they're not boring and are appropriate enough for client meetings even though I'll be the brightest one in the conference room.

The Bloomies salesgirl and I both gawked, then blinked at the register when they were rung up (check out the price below)! Bought them in a dark wine color as well and for Spring and Summer, I want this color, this color and this color too!

This pink leather jacket was also a steal from Bloomingdale's a couple of years back. Well, perhaps not as great a steal as the pants... You can't really tell from the pictures, but it's got great distressing and will age beautifully. At some ungodly price of I think $800, I got it down to $215. Last one, in my size, I couldn't resist...never mind that I can barely get it to close now...(damn you age. Damn you)...





What I'm Wearing:
Alice & Olivia High Waist Pants via Bloomingdale's
              Orig. Price: $198.00
              Paid: $31.00
Top: JCrew
Leather Jacket: Domo via Bloomingdale's
JCrew: Leopard Fedora
Zara Sequin Clutch
Belt: JCrew

Hope you ladies have a wonderful Valentine's Day with either yourselves or your significant others!

  17. I can't be reading that price right, smh. Under $50 bucks for a pair of A+O pants!! You have serious shopping skills. :)
    I totally love this whole outfit, head to toe. The color is fab, the hat is fab and I love the color of that jacket and how it looks, whether it zippens or not. You aren't the only one that has held on to jackets that don't quite close like it used to.

  18. $31 for those pants?!?!?! WHAT!?!?!? NICE FIND Amy! And I know exactly what you mean about the age factor, since I turned 30 last year...it has not been the same. I've put on a few pounds but I am working on it ahhhhh!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I would have scooped up multiples as well....$31 bucks can't beat it!!! Lovin' this look literally from head to toe! Let's not start on the age and Mr. Metabolism (has to be a man;) I was just thinking I should start some sort of exercise/diet regimen....we'll see how well this goes....

  59. This is a nice (and refreshing!) spin on the traditional pink for valentine's day. The light and bright purples look very feminine but not as saccharine. That jacket was a steal for $215. I recently thrifted a beautiful long blazer I can't button shut but it's served me well as a classic business piece worn over a suit...hang on to that jacket, age be damned!
