A few of my favorite things

I've done just a little bit of shopping lately (oops) and I wanted to share some of my favorite purchases with you. Which item is your favorite? Will you be adding any of them to your wish list?

Graham & Spencer faux rabbit fur coat - $372. I can't even begin to tell you how obsessed I am with this coat. It's only been cold enough for me to wear it once, but I can't wait to start wearing it more often in the coming months. It's soooo soft and looks great dressed up with heels and a cocktail dress or dressed down with jeans and flat boots.

Deborah Lippmann 'Magnetic Appeal' mini polish set - $29. These three colors are perfect for fall and the set comes with a little magnet that you hover over your nails while painting to create a cool magnetic wave effect.  Here's the result:

Hanae Mori 'Butterly' EDP - $90. I first discovered this scent when I was studying abroad in Spain, but I ran out awhile ago and never replaced the bottle. I just bought myself a new one and forgot how much I loved this warm, cozy scent. It makes me happy every time I wear it!

Vince Camuto 'Braden' boots - $149. I think it can be hard to find boots under $200 that are both cute and high quality, so I was pleasantly surprised when I ordered these and found they were made with beautiful leather and are really comfortable. I love the simple style and neutral whiskey color and am constantly wearing them with both jeans and dresses.

Juicy Couture 'Sarabeth' snow boots - $168. I had been looking for a pair of  snow boots that were reasonably attractive (I mean, let's face it - it's tough to look super cute in snow boots!) and these were the winner! They'll be perfect once it starts snowing and I need to trudge around the city in slushy, messy snow and ice.

ASOS feather clutch - $44. I carry this clutch for a quick way to dress up a simple outfit at night! It adds a bit of texture and whimsy to any look.

Mango 'Chloe' sweater dress - $40. I bought this simple, soft sweater dress in three different colors because I love its versatility. I can wear it with boots, tights, scarves, chunky necklaces....the possibilities are endless!

  9. I'm desperately in need of a pair of winter boots. I was actually mulling over a pair of Sorel's at City Sports last week. But I left with compression socks instead. Who am I?
