I have been on the hunt for a pair of oversized Tortoise Shell sunglasses for ages. All of my other eyewear purchases have been in Black. I was looking for a pair similar to those worn by Audrey Hepburn in "Breakfast at Tiffany's". I tried on the RayBan Wayfarer(the pair worn by all the 'celebs')but, decided to pass because I wasn't in love with them. I was lusting after these done by the French brand Celine in the 'Audrey' series. However, they quickly sold out.
This past weekend, I decided to pay a visit to Loehmann's on the Upper West side and came across the Stella McCartney version. There was another woman eyeing them, but, I managed to snatch them up before she did. hehe;) Shopping is a serious sport!
As soon as I put them on....I was in love. They are perfection and bit darker, plus, I didn't pay full price (which included their discounted price and an extra 20% off voucher). YAY!!! \o/

I haven't posted here in over a month (tisk tisk)didn't mean to stay away so long. Decided to get back to it as I love sharing with you my latest finds (some are old some are new). All items listed are from H&M.
Will style all items purchased soon and post outfits.
1. Metallic Cardi Coat - Trend *(sold out)
It is absolutely gorgeous. I've received several compliments since its debut last month. STUNNING! A go to staple for adding interest to an outfit whether it be casual or dressy.
2. Lace Pencil Skirt - Conscious Collection *(sold out)
As soon as I saw this posted for H&M's Fall preview collection. I knew I had to have it. So, feminine and classic. The quality is superb (made of 100% recycled cotton)...reminds me of high end designer 2008 Prada collection(a fave of mine)for those who know me *wink*
3. Faux Fur Gilet/Vest - Divided
I've wanted a faux fur gilet/vest for ages. Tried on several last year to no avail and was determined to find one this year. Found it! FINALLY!!! Perfect length and fit plus it comes with a faux leather belt. Can't go wrong with that. SOLD!!^_^
4. Black Crocheted Wool Cardigan/Jacket - Trend
I absolutely love this Cardi/Jacket. The crochet detailing throughout is different (something I haven't seen before). Perfect layering piece. Can be worn as a jacket during colder Fall months(has good weight to it). Goes with everything...just chuck it on and go.
5. Wool Zip Cardigan - Trend
This is a cute zip cardi, however, I'm not 100% sold on it (will be returning it):( When I tried it on in the store, I liked it. But, once I got it home I immediately had buyer's remorse. Overall, really nice, problem is the (cream/ivory) sleeves tends to shed on everything especially black colored items. It looks like I had a fight with my cat and she cat won. That's not the look I'm going for. @_@
6. Faux Fur Jacket
It was on sale for half price and I used my 20% off coupon. I only paid $28 dollars (can you believe it?) Now, that's a bargain. Never owned a faux fur jacket before, but, this was calling me. I tried it on several times and thought...hmmmm, would I actually wear this? Answer after receiving several compliments: HELL YEAH!!! This is perfect for running around NYC or when I want to feel more glamorous. :)
7. Bracelets - Jewelry
Purchased as a set. One is done in gold and the other in silver. The gold has a silver clasp while the silver has a gold clasp. New York stores finally got them in stock. I saw these on other blog posts in the UK and Amsterdam. I tend to lean towards minimal jewelry w/a bit of an edge...great addition to my collection.
Overall, I have to say H&M is hitting it out the park with the quality of merchandise and designs this year. A++ to their design team. I get a rush every time I visit their stores. New merchandise is received and placed on the selling floor weekly. You never know what you'll find. SO GO GO GO!!!
