Affordable OTK Boots & Pre-Loved Designer Handbags












CAPE/PONCHO: BP ($38) | TEE: BP (just ordered more of these bc I wear them SO much- $18) | DENIM: old (almost identical here) | BOOTS: Ivanka Trump (available in other colors - also love THIS alternative) | BAG: Trendlee *borrowed | HAT: Janessa Leone (more affordable style here) | WATCH: Michele | BRACELETS: David Yurman, Alex & Ani (all DY bracelets linked below) | LIPS: 'Lolita' | SUNGLASSES: Karen Walker dupe (only $12!) | EARRINGS: J.Crew | RING: David Yurman

Now that winter is just around the corner, I am starting to wear ankle booties less & less, and taller boots more & more! :) I got my first pair of Stuart Weitzman boots a few weeks back & I do love them - however, they are super tight which is not for everyone (I know my mom wouldn't like putting them on)! But, I wanted to share this alternative pair as well. Not only are these are a fraction of the price & they aren't as snug/hard to get on. These will be perfect for those of you with calf muscles! 

Okay, so moving on- TRENDLEE! First of all, you guys know I LOVE handbags, especially designer handbags (oops, its a curse!). I get lots of e-mails asking for recommendations on handbags & also asking if I am ever selling mine, which got me to thinking about recommending websites that sell pre-loved designer handbags. It's hard to find places online that you can trust - if you are buying a used handbag you want it to be 1. authentic & 2. in good condition. Anyway, I was introduced to Trendlee & had to share more with you all.  They actually let me borrow this Celine Phantom (which you all know is a fave of mine!) so I could experience what it would be like to shop from their site. And good news -- I highly recommend! So first of all, they have a wide selection of designers which is great, but their bags are guaranteed authentic & come in great condition.

  4. Burgundy never looked better or more "tempting" as a choice of color for boots and bag... I'm now totally putting it into consideration next time I'm going to add some item to my closet. :)
