Sorry these aren't the greatest pictures.  I've been observing GILT sales for awhile but never bit the bullet on a purchase until last week.  I was somewhat skeptical of GILT & Ebates because I figured there has to be a catch.  If there is, my ass hasn't figured it out yet!  As far as GILT, $49 for J Brand jeans was just too good to pass up.  My only complaint about these jeans, along with most, is that under my tush they ALWAYS pull and look ridiculous.  *sigh*

I swear they fit.  My legs are totally getting circulation in these pictures.  So, what do y'all think?  Should these jeans get put on Ebay or should I go ahead and get them hemmed with hope?

Next, I bought this comfy Juicy velour jacket.  Before you judge, it's been nippy in the mornings on and I thought this would be ok over scrubs.  And to be honest, I'm a jeans and tee-shirt kind of  girl and will probably probably wear it a lot to the grocery store and other miscellaneous errands.  It is soft, warm... ahhh, I hope I don't fall asleep on my commute to work.

And last, a sad day in the shoe department.  I freakin' love shoes.  Like, L-O-V-E shoes.  When a 25% off coupon code popped up in my inbox from Piperlime I knew what I was going to purchase.  Sam Edelman's Effie.

Well I got these babies in the mail today and within 2 minutes of wearing them realized they had to go.  Most uncomfortable shoe I've tried on in a long time.  Such a shame because after I ordered them, I spotted them in the new InStyle.  Grrr.  I had such great hopes for you Effie.  You were going to look great with a little wool mini but noooooo, you had to be difficult.



  1. I think the jeans look great but need to be hemmed a little or just wear tall shoes! Those shoes you ordered are really cool but if they are not comfy you probably wouldn't have worn them that much. Overall, I think you got some great buys!

  2. The jeans and jacket are keepers! Glad those shoes didn't fit. You know how I felt about them.

  3. Ooh, that Juicy jacket looks so cozy! I am all about dressed up sweats!

    And too bad about the wedges - I think a bunch of retailers are making wedges in that style this season though, so I think you'll be able to find a comfier replacement, but they are nice!

  4. Ashley- That is the one thing I hate about designer jeans, beside the ridiculous price tag- always have to get them hemmed. But I do take them to a lady who keeps the original hem, which I like.

    Katie, the shoes would have won you over.

    Lisa, the jacket is as cozy as it looks. Love it! :)

  5. oh, sometimes shoe shopping is such a process. I love the Juicy jacket, it looks really warm!



  6. oh i love that gray cardigan! looks perfect for Fall!
