June & July

Il faut vraiment que j'apprenne à fermer ma bouche... ou du moins que j'arrête de mettre par écrit mes aspirations à contrôler ma consommation alors que j'ai le plus grand mal à ne pas céder à mes envies. Ma supposée restriction d'achats prend franchement une tournure embarrassante. En même temps, je me suis aussi débarrassée de quelques vêtements. Pas une excuse pour autant mais j'ai moins la sensation d'être une acheteuse compulsive.

Adidas Stan Smith (eBay) 
L'achat "mode" du mois de juin, après les avoir vues sur internet et partout dans les rues de Paris, je pensais être saturée de ces baskets mais non.

T-shirt en lin rayé "Faxon" Isabel Marant Etoile
Pull noir "Orlane" Isabel Marant Etoile (soldes)
Mes 2 objectifs "officiels" des soldes: un t-shirt rayé manches courtes en lin que je porte constamment et un pull en laine mélangé mi-saison. Bref, du bon basique comme je les aime.

Trench en lin Comptoir des Cotonniers (eBay)
Je voulais un trench estival mais pas ceux qu'on trouve en ce moment à la Céline, en viscose ou synthétique. Celui de Comptoir des Cotonniers, en lin, date de plusieurs saisons déjà et correspond parfaitement à ce que je recherchais : léger mais avec de la tenue, une couleur taupe qui se marie avec la palette de ma garde-robe.

Blouse "Lana" Isabel Marant Etoile : 
J'ai enfin mis la main sur cette blouse!

Top "Memento" Madewell (eBay)
Vu sur le blog de Sue, j'ai craqué pour ce top léger à l'influence lingerie/Isabel Marant.

Pantalon kaki Zara
LE coup de cœur en rayon et confirmé en cabine d'essayage - ce qui est rare chez Zara. J'adore la coupe taille haute, la matière et la subtile inspiration façon pantalon Thaï.
Pantalon bleu marine H&M
Un pantalon bleu marine sans prétentions qui se marie bien avec du gris, blanc, de la marinière qui se décline aussi bien en mode boulot que pour les jours plus relax.

Jupe patineuse H&M 
Une jupe fluide noire toute simple et efficace, là aussi portable en toutes occasions.

Veste Isabel Marant "Uro": dépot-vente
J'étais à la recherche de cette veste depuis le printemps 2012, autant dire que lorsque je l'ai trouvée, oubliées toutes les bonnes résolutions! 

robe débardeur en lin Muji 
Gros coup de cœur pour cette petite robe toute simple que je compte porter autant que possible.

Voilà, c'est tout...

I really need to learn to shut my mouth... or at least to stop writing wishful intentions about controlling my spending habits which I've had the hardest time to keep in check. This supposedly shopping restriction is getting embarrassing. However, I did get rid/sold a few items. No excuse but at least I don't feel as much a serial shopper. 

Here's what I got these 2 past months:

Adidas Stan Smith (eBay)
The June "fashion" purchase. After spotting these sneakers all over internet and the streets of Paris, I thought I'd be sick to death with them by now but no.

striped linen tshirt "Faxon" Isabel Marant Etoile
black sweater "Orlane" Isabel Marant Etoile 
My 2 "official" sales goals : a striped short sleeves linen t-shirt, that I've been wearing in and out, almost 2 or 3 times a week. Plus, a mid-season wool mixed sweater that I have yet to wear. In short, good basics, just the way I like them, filling some gaps and needs.

Linen trench Comptoir des Cotonniers (eBay)
I've been craving a summery trench but the ones I saw in stores -à la Céline- are made of synthetic not ideal for the season. The Comptoir des Cotonniers dates back to a few seasons ago is linen and fits what I had in mind: light but with enough material hold, a taupe color mixing well with my wardrobe's palette.

Isabel Marant Etoile "Lana" top (eBay)
Finally found that lovely striped blouse!

Seen on Sue's blog, this breezy lingery top seemed so lovely that I tracked one down on eBay. No regrets.

kaki pants Zara
THE unexpected crush: spotted on the shelves and veted in the changing room - a rarity when it comes to Zara. I instantly liked these trousers with a high waisted cut and a subtle style reference to Thaï pants style.

Simple navy pants for summer that I can wear as well at the office as on casual moments.

skirt H&M
A simple and effective black flirty skirt once again wearable on any occasions.

Isabel Marant "Uro" jacket (consignment store)
I had been looking for this item since the spring of 2012. Suffice to say that when I found it, any resolutions I had was blown away.

Linen tank dress Muji
Big crush on that simple everyday dress that I plan on wearing at any chance.

Voilà, that's all... 

What have you scored lately? Did you manage to keep your spending habits in check?

  1. Errr ... I've not been wholly good but I've not been wholly bad either. I love Toast clothing and managed to get 3 lovely items for a fraction of the price as I was an early bird one morning and I caught the archive sale just at the right moment. And I've been going a little mad on espadrilles and MIH jeans. The one thing I keep telling myself though ... is they are all things I wear and wear a lot - not the most exciting but they make me happy :o)

    And thank you for the mention and I'm glad you like the Memento Madewell top - it's perfect for the summer isn't it?

    1. Looks like you did some great sales hunting! Finding things you're crushing on but out of budget with a good discount: that's the best! Toast always manage to be appealing, sadly (?), I'm reluctant to overseas online shopping.
      I just wish the Madewell top got more use... Summer is a bit elusive and schizo here to say the least! :((

  2. I love the suit w/ sneakers look on you. I second that basics aren't the most exciting things to buy but they end up being the ones that are worn the most. All the better when I can get them cheap and chic!

    1. He he, the suit+ sneakers is so 90's revival! ;))
      I'm actually pretty excited when I can find basics I love and know I will wear to death. Even better when the price fits my budget.
