In case any of you were considering this skirt for Ann Taylor's next sale, I wanted to show how versatile the color is cross-seasons. Last week I wore it amidst winter gloom, but for spring months I can see it with delicate neutrals and gold jewelry. The lighting in my room is all over the place, so I can't get an accurate photo of the color. Please don't rely on my pictures for the true color of this skirt.
Unfortunately you will all have to see this blouse in many more posts this year. It's hands-down my favorite Fall purchase and I'm so thankful reader R.L. sold hers to me at the sale price of $20. It's a regular size XS, but I DIY slimmed it like so. My coworker has banned me from wearing my multitude of Gap nude blouses to work again.
On a separate note, BR upped their online discount to 30% with BRTAKE30, good until tomorrow 10/31 at noon. Be sure to go through eBates (referral) for 10% cash back as well. Here are some pics that I took months ago of the Octavio Woven Peep Toe Heel. I tried these on in-store and loved them - the neutral shoe and platform were so elongating on my legs. I've had them in my cart ever since, waiting for a lower price, but now the time has come I can't bite the bullet because I'm in full-on winter mode!
If you live in a warmer climate, I recommend these shoes to make your legs look long and lean. The leather felt soft and the chunky heel seemed comfy. I think they run about half a size small. I'm wearing a 6 in these photos, and thought a 5.5 would be perfect (for reference, I wear a solid 5 in Ann Taylor).
Octavio Woven Peep Toe Heel - only 5 and 5.5's are left online, check stores for sz 6 and up.
