I’m currently on the hunt for the perfect winter coat, as I’m due for a new one. This year’s obsession: leather accents, preferably on the sleeves. I’m all about the tweed and leather contrast on the faux leather moto jacket from H&M, but am hoping to splurge and go for some real leather because I plan on wearing this bad boy forever.

This outfit that I’m sharing as my first post in a long time is fitting because it summarizes how I dressed this summer: in loose fitting trousers, mixing textures and prints, and in a lot of navy. Surprisingly, or not so surprisingly, this whole look is comprised of items I snagged off the sale racks from Urban Outfitters, LOFT, and DSW.

Found: An incredible Kate Spade skirt at TJ Maxx in Watertown, NY for $179 from $598. Yet another broke girl find. I’m obsessed.

This gorgeous dress is, by far, the best broke girl find I have purchased to date. I purchased this brand new ABS by Allen Schwartz gown off of eBay with the Lord & Taylor tag still attached, priced at $530. I bid on it, and won it for $29. Yes, seriously. The front is identical to the dress I wore in our engagement photos, and it’s a size 8, but I will get it altered for about $20. 

Since Matt & I will be getting married in France, I will most likely wear this gown to city hall when we’re legally married in the states. In the end after alterations  I will have spent about $50 on a $530 dress. Jackpot.

Check out this eBay seller who I purchased it from, they have a ridiculous amount of items to sort through, but it’s well worth it when you score this big.

Hi there! Any recommendations on where I can find some decent leather (faux) skinny pants? Seems like everything out there is some kind of legging, and I'm wanting some that are more like pants- have pockets, longer and thicker than some of the leather leggings I am seeing out there.

Hello! Forever21 has a pair of leather cigarette pants for $22.80 on their website. Other faux leather pants I found were $75 and up, and I think these are a pretty decent “broke-girl” alternative. xoxo.

I was too excited about this purchase not to share it with you all. Despite the fact that it’s still freezing outside, I bought this swim suit for $30 from H&M this weekend because I couldn’t be looking more forward to summer. This is beginning to feel like the longest winter…ever.

Now that Spring is just around the corner (thank goodness), I’m itching to shop for some items on my wish list, which includes prints, bright colors, new arm candy, and fun bras. I’m especially loving the selection from Free People. Check it out.

I’m not really sure why I’ve been MIA, but maybe it has something to do with the fact that most of my outfits lately have only included workout apparel since its crunch time. I’ll be in Montreal and Boston this weekend, so I’ll be spending lots of time on the road. At least my man is accompanying me, and I get to stop and see my niece on the way. Here I’m wearing:
Charlotte Russe trousers
Gap silk blouse*
Jessica Simpson fish scale wedges from Marshalls
Forever21 tweed moto jacket
Happy Wednesday, xoxo

This morning I took a ballet class then got lunch with my man at a Venezuelan restaurant downtown. A fried plantain with roasted chicken, avocados, etc = heaven. Here’s what I’m wearing today, and I must admit that it may just be my most Broke-Girl savvy look:
Forever21 draped top: $3.49*
Forever21 trousers: $25
J. Crew studded belt: $10*
Urban Outfitters heeled boots: $15*
Michael Kors leather moto jacket: $160*
* = purchased on clearance
Happy Saturday, what are you all up to this weekend?
