The Recent Purchases thread will be posted on Monday mornings (PST) This thread is for sharing all your new buys. Clothes, shoes, razors cologne, share it all. …Just kidding. But just like MFA, and per your suggestions, we are now going to have a weekly recent purchases thread. So gather round and brag about your purchases! Bags, clothing, shoes, jewelry, perfume, etc. If possible, please share a picture and a little review!November 21, 2018 at 1:44 am #21448
Winter can brace itself. I’m coming.

I’m excited this week because I picked up a few “white whales” of mine on Poshmark and eBay!
[LeSportsac x Joyrich Giza dinosaur print](https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/ZX8AAOSwvGdbjUhp/s-l500.jpg) bag.
[Gap leather flats](https://poshmark.com/listing/NWT-Leather-Gap-flats-57d5cffd8f0fc4e903008297) with ankle chains. I used money from a Poshmark sale of my own so technically I paid nothing!
And these blue and pink floral [Nike Air Max](https://www.nike.com/launch/t/womens-air-max-1-ultra-moire-paris/) sneakers.
I also got a [Barbour International Polarquilt Parka](https://www.coggles.com/coats-clothing/women/clothing/barbour-international-women-s-international-polarquilt-parka-black/11033467.html) in black because winter is coming.
And then this is all u/pygoscelis’ fault, but I bought [Uniqlo circle skirts](https://www.uniqlo.com/us/en/women-cotton-high-waist-circular-skirt-412872.html) in green and orange-brown. I actually bought both at regular price and three days later they went on sale online, so I re-ordered them online shipped-to-store and returned the original ones I bought. Kind of annoying, but I saved $20!November 21, 2018 at 1:44 am #21450
I found jeans that fit my waist, my big butt and my legs comfortably, and they look good!

Just picked up a [Paige leather jacket and a wool Burberry belt](https://imgur.com/a/vBcesUh). Now I have to wait for my arm to heal so I can actually *wear* the jacket…November 21, 2018 at 1:44 am #21452
I had a shoe emergency last week while I was travelling for work and so I picked up the [Ava loafer](https://www.littleburgundyshoes.com/product/Womens-24835-Black-Misc-Loafer-32160010?c=15) from Little Burgundy in an attempt to stop the giant blisters the other work shoes I brought were giving me.
These shoes are AMAZING. Baby soft leather for $100, they look great for the office, AND (drumroll
please) they don’t set off the metal detector at the airport so I can leave them on through security. I love them.November 21, 2018 at 1:44 am #21453
[Chenille light blue sweater from Gap](https://www.gap.com/browse/product.do?pid=350304032&CAWELAID=120280880002141717&CAGPSPN=pla&CAAGID=10149031538&CATCI=pla-84530748928&tid=gppl000001&kwid=1&ap=7&gclid=Cj0KCQjwof3cBRD9ARIsAP8x70P3vvZFw71Xc2hwHGbCz5WiSZiNAcn-tV5mSW7B-ePTzZjhFVh6heMaAhdOEALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds). It is sooo cozy I want to buy ten more. I feel like I’m wandering around in the softest blanket on earth!
[New shoes](https://www.vans.com/shop/shoes-classics-sk8-hi/sk8-hi-black-black-black). I was looking for classics, but the cashier had a hunch and brought them out for me too.
Recently bought [this pair](https://www.madewell.com/9%22-high-rise-skinny-jeans-in-hayes-wash-button-front-edition-J9491.html?dwvar_J9491_color=DM1452&cgid=apparel-jeans-highriseskinny&position=0&position=0#sz=12&start=25) of Madewell jeans and have stopped wearing my other pair at all as a result. So I got myself a [new pair](https://www.madewell.com/10%22-high-rise-skinny-jeans-in-carbondale-wash-F9226.html?dwvar_F9226_color=DM1437&cgid=apparel-jeans-highriseskinny&position=5&position=5).November 21, 2018 at 1:44 am #21454
I bought the [Helly Hansen Lyness coat in Sulphur](https://ak1.ostkcdn.com/images/products/243/511/L26483437.jpg) (a bright yellow) from a warehouse outlet after trying to order it from the official store. The North American rain craze is only going to get worse, and the Uniqlo coat I had wasn’t cutting it. I’m really excited to wear this, but it’s gone and gotten hot again!
I also finally bought a [Talula Trooper](https://di2ponv0v5otw.cloudfront.net/posts/2018/08/02/5b638088409c15abf0c92b9e/m_5b6380b02aa96ae8613b9570.jpg) coat in a rare shade – maroon/red. I have a similar coat I wear frequently in the spring/fall, so it’ll be nice to rotate between the two based on what look I’m going for!
Almost purchase: I was excited to buy some basic long sleeves from Uniqlo for work, but they all bunched up in the most unflattering and unnatural way when I slouched while wearing my American Eagle jeggings, so I couldn’t convince myself to purchase.November 21, 2018 at 1:44 am #21455
I got [this Madewell easy crop tee](https://www.madewell.com/garment-dyed-easy-crop-tee-99105151441.html) in pink and yellow(though yellow apparently sold out and never shipped). I’m in love with it! I’m so sad the yellow is sold out, but going to buy it in some of the other prints/colors they have. I’m a size 12 with a large-ish bust and have never worn crop tops, but this is JUST the right amount of cropped to wear with high waisted jeans.
I also got [these curvy skinny jeans](https://www.madewell.com/curvy-high-rise-skinny-jeans-in-lucille-wash-H6385.html) but I’m on the fence about them. They fit great initially, but after wearing them all day they stretched bit and now I’m wondering if I should have sized down. The wash is a little lighter than I expected as well. Those Madewell “magic pockets” really are magic though. I wore these with the crop top above and they really pulled in the area of my belly that I usually feel self conscious about. It still took a lot of encouraging self-talk to go out wearing the outfit, but in the end I felt awesome in it.
Also love how Madewell is using models in several sizes now, it really helps to know how something will look on someone my size. I think that’s part of the reason I decided to go for the crop top.November 21, 2018 at 1:44 am #21456
I got some everlane that I really like (I’ve had to return most of what I’ve order from them lately).
I own the modern boyfriend in the mid blue and black and they put it on choose what you pay so I bought the last color I didn’t have, the [light blue](https://www.everlane.com/products/womens-boyfriend-ltbluewsh-denim-jeans?collection=womens-sale); these jeans are amazing and I am so sad they are not making them anymore and replaced them with the super baggy boyfriend.
I also got two fleece sweaters that I love:
[This oversized crew in lavender](https://www.everlane.com/products/womens-ovrszd-midwt-fleece-sweatshirt-lavender?collection=womens-sweaters)
[This half zip oversize crew in olive](https://www.everlane.com/products/womens-ovrszd-fleece-halfzip-olive?collection=womens-sweaters)
They’re super comfortable!! They shed a little if you wear black underneath but they’re super cozy and I love them.November 21, 2018 at 1:44 am #21457
The bralette thread inspired me, I picked up four bralettes from aerie. I’m not exactly small chested, so let’s see how it goes!November 21, 2018 at 1:44 am #21458
I got this absolutely incomprehensible sweatshirt from a thrift store last week and I’m in love with itNovember 21, 2018 at 1:44 am #21459

[these](https://shop.nordstrom.com/s/paul-green-sofia-loafer-women/4924926) paul green loafers on mega sale. I am in loooove.November 21, 2018 at 1:44 am #21461
I literally just bought [this Abercrombie faux leather wrap skirt](https://www.abercrombie.com/shop/us/p/-14331820?seq=01&source=googleshopping) and I’m OBSESSED. It’s so cute and not too short for my long ass legs which is a miracle. I’m currently trying to figure out a way to wear it for work (casual office) because I don’t want to wait for the weekend!November 21, 2018 at 1:44 am #21462
I’m pretending it’s fall even though the temperature is in the 80s…
[Cute little black top](https://www.princesspolly.com/good-feeling-ruched-top)
[Teddy bear jacket](https://www.princesspolly.com/pixie-jacket)
[Stripey cyber lady parts](https://www.princesspolly.com/moss-pant)
And I found [Celine sunglasses](https://www.overstock.com/Clothing-Shoes/Celine-CL-41397-T7F-Helen-Dark-Havana-Honey-Plastic-Square-Brown-Lens-Sunglasses/12410534/product.html) on super sale at Nordstrom Rack!

I *finally* bit the bullet on light wash, high-waisted blue jeans…aaaaand I’m wearing them all of the time.
Ended up with J. Crew’s [Point Sur High-Rise Retro Straight Jean](https://www.jcrew.com/p/point-sur-highrise-retro-straight-jean/H6415). I ordered two sizes during a recent promo and ended up keeping the smaller size, since the sales gal thought they might stretch out a bit. So far, I’m content with that, though I occasionally find myself popping the top button if I’m hanging out alone, haha.November 21, 2018 at 1:44 am #21464
I thrifted a Furla bag for seven dollars.November 21, 2018 at 1:44 am #21465
I snagged [these dresses](https://imgur.com/a/DaAAlUj) on poshmark last week. Can’t wait for this weather to cool down so I can wear them!
