5 Things :: my walk of shame

So here’s the damage: 5 items from the Target/Altuzarra collab that ended up finding a home in my closet. For good or for ill, they’re here to stay because the promo stipulated a 14-day return policy and I’m way beyond that time limit.

When 50 Dresses is over, you can be sure I’ll be styling these goodies within an inch of their lives.

Altuzarra for Target Python Pencil Skirt- Natural


Altuzarra for Target Jacquard Pencil Skirt- Black


Altuzarra for Target Satin Orchid Print Oxford Shirt- Navy


Altuzarra for Target Velvet Blazer- Ruby Hill


Altuzarra for Target Button Down Dress- Black


September grand total: approximately $225 with tax. If I kept with my original budget of $250 a month, this is actually pretty good for me. But if I’m going with my new budget of $150, then this month was a total bust. Of course, I wasn’t supposed to be spending anyway at this time, so it’s already a bust, but as Patti says, life’s too short for recriminations so I’m just gonna call this a wash.


Week in review – Prints and patterns and trends; oh, my!

  1. Oh that burgundy velvet…so beautiful! If you’re happy with your purchases then enjoy them…life’s too short for guilt. 🙂

    I reckon you could cosplay with that first skirt- it has similar colours to Clara’s Caretaker one!!! Wow, that’s a lot of items. I really like them! I know how you feel though. I really shouldn’t be buying and I feel my September and start of October, I have just been buying.I went out on Saturday and came back with a vintage dress, shirt, 2 hats, skirt, boots and clock cufflinks (all thrifted) but still, I HAVE.TOO.MANY.CLOTHES!!!!!!! x

      Had to Google the Caretaker for images but you’re absolutely right! Now if only I can find some collar clips I like. And I say you’re all good with the shopping, especially since they’re all thrifted. And you can never have too many clothes. Just so long as your closet doesn”t come tumbling down around you. ;p

    The velvet blazer is awesome. The slits on the pencils are pretty sexy, too.

    • mtsedwards says:

      That’s what everyone said about the skirts but this is one instance when my vertically challenged-ness stands me in good stead. The slits aren’t scandalous on me at all.

  4. I love that velvet blazer! It will make for some amazing holiday outfits!

    Oh you got the red velvet blazer (Suzanne has it too) – how I love that! I will buy it from you when you tire of it : > xo

Tell me all about it! I'm listening...
