Wednesday's Obsessions

by Ally Harding, 9:00 AM
This is my favorite post of the week! Hmm..I wonder why?! It's also great because it prevents me from impulse buying. I'm able to blog about something I want then wait a few days and think on it and I usually decide it was just a fling and don't really need it!

Ok, on to today's obsessions

I've always kind of liked the Chloe Susanna Ankle Boots even with all that bling. 


  Kate Bosworth


Kate Walsh

Maybe it's the low heel or maybe it's the fact they look amazing with skinny jeans and shorts. One thing I don't like is their mortgage payment price tag.

Luckily good old Sam Edleman makes a similar pair but for about 10% of the price of the Chloe pair.

Sam Edelman makes really awesome affordable shoes. I even kind of like this pair better then the Chloe pair because they aren't as flashy. I was looking in my closet the other day, preparing myself for the exciting Fall weather, and realized a black pair of ankle boots were missing! No one stole them I just don't own any! I'm thinking these may be the pair that join my wardrobe!




I've said it before but I'm an eBay junky. I sell a lot of stuff on eBay and buy a lot of stuff on eBay. A few months ago I kept seeing all the ranting and raves of how awesome Rag & Bone jeans are. So I got myself a white pair new with tags off eBay for much cheaper than the retail price. I didn't think I could do better than that deal but I did! 


I'm obsessed with these jeans and bought them off eBay for 60% off the retail price!! And they were new with tags! I got them yesterday in the mail and am dying to wear them! They truly are perfect jeans. They sit mid rise so they keep your muffin top and buddha belly tucked in nicely. They fit very true to size. I hate it when you have to wear different sizes in the same brand. Not Rag & Bone. I'm a 27 in the my white skinnies and the same in these. If you're looking for a new pair of dark skinnies this Fall these my friends are it! And always check eBay! 




To round out my wardrobe I really want to get some more blouses to wear with skinny jeans.


I really like the look of a button down collared shirt buttoned all the way to the top with a big necklace underneath the collar. This blouse fits that criteria perfectly.



Love this top and the color is gorgeous! It's currently on sale too!



I love the cranes on this blouse. I own a few Daniel Rainn tops that I've bought from Marshall's and they are really great affordable tops.



I really like the look of an oversized plaid button down shirt over skinny jeans or leggings. To get this look I'd probably order this top in a large.



I've been eyeing Missoni's scarfs for a long time at the Saks outlet. They're always 60% off so I don't know what I've been waiting for. I really want an infinity one because they just seem so easy. You don't have to worry about how you're going to wear the scarf, it's a permanent shape.

Missoni Zigzag Infinity Scarf

I absolutely love this one and the wine and orange colors are gorgeous together. I'm hoping this will be the year I finally buy my Missoni scarf!



I have hardwood floors all throughout my house which I realize is a great thing but it also means my house has to be vaccummed daily. I bought an Electrolux when we first bought our house and it's been great. It was only $100 so I'm not too surprised that after a year and a half it's starting to not work as well. The other negative to having hardwood is you can only buy a certain kind of vacuum. I learned that the hard way and used an Oreck on our floors and was left with tons of scratches. I think I have found my new vacuum!

Dyson DC44 Animal Digital Slim Cordless Vacuum



This vacuum is amazing. It's cordless and it's perfect for hardwood floors because it won't scratch them. It has many kinds of replacement pieces so you can vacuum your blinds, your steps, and your ceiling fans. I know Dyson's are investments and I had always heard friends talk about wanting one for their birthday or Christmas as a big gift. Well, I think I've finally jumped on the Dyson train! I'm hoping that since this would be for our home and not just for me Theo will be more open to us getting one. Fingers crossed!

  2. Oh my gosh, that vacuum lol. How sad that's what I'm most excited about in this post, I'm the market for a new one though. I love finding deals on ebay, but I've also found lots of used designer clothing and handbags on poshmark. Have you ever checked it out? There's a link to my "closet" on the right hand side of my blog. It's slowly becoming an obsession..any money I make I use to buy something new!

  3. Love these blouses and the skinny jeans. I wonder if that vacuum is better than our cordless one - I need all the help I can get with the frickin' dog hair!

  6. I am so jealous of your Rag&Bone steal! I almost bought some on Piperlime the other day with the 20% deal they were having but of course...R&B was excluded! I'll have to check out ebay again!
