Hey ladies!! I made a few recent purchases that I’m totally loving, and I’m pretty sure most of them will be winter staples in my wardrobe. Yesterday I wore an outfit that included some of my recent buys and I got tons of compliments and questions on it so I figured I’d share with you all!
My new favorite friend is really an old friend that I often forget about but always come back to, and his name is Amazon! Yes…Amazon has a fashion section on their site and it’s absolutely UH-MAZING!! I recently found thee perfect dupe to the Chanel flap bag that I adore so much, but refuse to spend $4,000+ for this oh so coveted bag. The Steve Madden dupe is under $50 and it comes in black and taupe. Macy’s also sells it for it’s retail price of $78. Bottom line is if you see a luxury brand item that you love but are not willing to splurge for the sake of fashion, check Amazon for a dupe or similar style. My advice is to also put items (that you are not pressed for) in your Amazon wishlist because prices often drop…I purchased my Steven Madden bag for only $35!
I’m loving the adorable little fur pom pom keychains as handbag accessories…yes, they are trendy and maybe even a little faddish but I couldn’t resist for under $6 on Amazon! I also snagged a beanie with a fur ball for those casual winter days when you just want to keep your ears warm, and still look cute!
Lastly, I purchased two basic striped dresses that are perfect for adding layers and pairing with over-the-knee boots this season. I bought one on sale for $8 and the other for just $20 (both pictured below). I also couldn’t resist a gorgeous pair of open-toed booties for under $20 on sale.
I’ve linked all of the items that I’ve discussed below for you to shop…and don’t forget to follow me on Instagram at @aliyapatrice to see how I styled some of these pieces. I’d love to hear all about your recent winter buys or what stores/sites are your go-to’s for style steals in the comments section below!
