Everett meet-up shopping haul! (+WIW today with them)

Here's what I bought during the Everett YLF meetup shopping trip, it was a blast shopping with everyone! Happily all of these items work nicely together, as well as with LOTS of my existing wardrobe. None are returnable, but I'd love to hear any styling suggestions you ladies have! Lightly styled, but mostly just piling on items to lessen photo load :)

  • gray faux fur trimmed vest (Ann Taylor)
  • wine turtleneck, winter white turtleneck (Ann Taylor)
  • charcoal tweed cropped jacket (Banana Republic, rated "Killer" :D)
  • tassel necklace (LOFT, shamelessly copied from Christy ^^), knot necklace (Ann Taylor, Angie's find for me)
  • brown and white dotty scarf with poofy tassels (JCrew)
  • purple chunky beret, red chunky beret (ok purchased a week ago, but still new; Old Navy)
  • bright red-orange and navy striped tee (JCrew, Angie's find for me)
  • bright red-orange handbag (Kate Spade, Arya has this too!)
  • cognac heeled oxfords (Nine West)

Angie had commented that the orange tee would look fun with the tweed jacket, so I thought I'd roll with that and wear today! Feels very autumnal :) Feedback most welcome.

    I'm still recovering from absolutely KILLER outfit #10 - the colours and outfit combination give me heart palpitations.

    *need to lie down*

  • Arya replied 8 years ago

    ZOMG I want those shoes! Of course, everything looks lovely and I *so* wish I'd been able to stay longer than I did.

    Also, I must know where that little vest in photo 10 is from. I have been looking for a boob-warmer type vest forever!

  • AJ replied 8 years ago

    Oh I like them all but especially that tweed jacket. It looks stellar on you!

    So jealous that your group got to shop with Angie!

  • replied 8 years ago

    Arya is cracking me up with her "boob-warmer" description of your vest!
    Love that vest and the tweed jacket, oh my. I hope you remember everything you learned from Angie so you can teach us!

  • Kari replied 8 years ago

    Oh, Aida, your new finds look incredible together. The last outfit is just stunning. LOVE those shoes!
    It was so fantastic to see you again!

  • Deborah replied 8 years ago

    Wow Aida # 10 is just SO fabulous! I love your haul and I particularly love the jacket and the heeled oxfords. You shopped well!

  • Marley replied 8 years ago

    #10 is PERFECTION! Love everything about it. The stripes with the tweed are a great combo. Also, love those necklaces - I've been wanting a tassel necklace - I love the movement of those tassels!

    Actually, I like all of your "haul." AND can't wait to see you this coming weekend!

  • Aida replied 8 years ago

    So happy my WIW is going over well, it felt a bit different but still very me. There seems to be a bit of gamine (?) running through this group which I'm excited to play around with.

    AJ, Claire, Deborah, thank you!

    Angie, yay thank you! That makes my week ^^ This is a new color combo for me but I'm definitely going to wear it again.

    Arya, the shoes are "Picolaff" by Nine West, but don't seem to be online anywhere. Afraid I can't help much with the vest either, I thrifted it and it appears to be from the late 80s/early 90s. I too love "boob-warmer" vests (teehee!), and you're right they're so hard to find!

    Kari, I didn't realize how well they all went together until pulling them out this morning, hehe! It was lovely to see you again too!

    Marley, tassel necklaces are starting to pop up everywhere! I'm sure you'll find yours soon (maybe this weekend!). Eee I'm excited :D

  • Katiepea replied 8 years ago

    Wow, I love everything and especially the colour palette. Except like the others, my eye was instantly drawn to outfit #10, even with them all being little thumbnail images. I loved it so much I had to look at it first!

  • Jjsloane replied 8 years ago

    Everything is fantastic! I love the way you put it together in 10. I especially like the polkadot scarf, the Kate bag and the shoes.

  • suzanne m replied 8 years ago

    I'm lying down with Angie. #10 sent me swooning!

  • Jonesy replied 8 years ago

    Awesome!! I love that outfit in #10! That jacket fits you so well and I love you in that striped top. So, now I'm wondering if, since you say the top is orange striped, and the new KS bag matches it, the bag is orange rather than the red I thought it was? Or is it a tomato red? Gorgeous (just curious, since my new monitor is confounding me re. colors :).

    ETA: Duh, I see that you mention the color of the bag clear as day in your bullet points!! My fault for not reading carefully...time to go make my morning coffee!

  • sarah replied 8 years ago

    Sorry, no time to comment, I'm off to the 9 West store in search of those shoes.... ; )

    GREAT HAUL! I love it all. And I really am in search of those identical shoes.

  • Fruitful replied 8 years ago

    Aida, every piece looks fantastic and like it will play beautifully with your wardrobe & style! But my favourites are the tweed jacket and those darling oxfords!

    I LOVE the colour combo in 10.

    BTW nice to see someone else post back and side views :) I'm kind of obsessed with doing that as I'm not satisfied unless I'm honest about how I look from all sides - and yes, these outfits work on you from any angle.

  • morethanbeige replied 8 years ago

    What a great haul. I am loving it! Your outfits rock. Swooning over the KS bag!

  • taylor replied 8 years ago

    WOW, You look wonderful Aida!
    What an amazing shopping trip....soooo jealous:)

  • rae replied 8 years ago

    What a fantabulous haul! The orange top is making me swoon - I might have to copy you now that I know I can wear orange. :) The BR jacket fits you SO well, too. Be sure to pack that good shopping luck when you come down south!

  • qfbrenda replied 8 years ago

    Wow, what a haul! Great job! I'm another who LOVES #10. Well done.

  • Ginny replied 8 years ago

    looks great , tons of great stuff, love #10 and that tweed jacket looks fab on you!!

  • Suz replied 8 years ago

    OMG, everything here is fantastic!! No wonder you got a KILLER rating! LOVE today's outfit; it's a fantastic play of colour and texture.

    Texture is actually the first word that came to mind in looking at these pieces. The fur trimmed vest with its chunky knit, the AMAZING jacket, the detail on the shoes...it's all adding interest.

    You look terrific in that wine colour.

    What a fabulous haul!

  • CocoLion replied 8 years ago

    You have some great new items here Aida. Lucky you for finding the perfect red striped top, the perfect red bag, and the perfect heeled oxfords. You outfit today with all of those luscious layers and with the new jacket topping it off, is drop-dead chic.

  • Aida replied 8 years ago

    Thanks for all the great feedback and comments ladies :D

    Jonesy, if the bag and shirt are placed next to each other it becomes clear that the bag has a good dose of pink in it while the shirt has a good dose of orange. My eyes see them both as bright red-orange, but the bag definitely skews slightly coral and slightly redder.

    Sarah, I mentioned above that the shoes are are "Picolaff" by Nine West, but don't seem to be online anywhere. Perhaps if you have a Nine West outlet near you? :\

    Fruitful, I am a 100% devoted member of Team Riveting Rearsider :D I always post new purchases with all views, because really, they SHOULD look great from all angles if I'm going to keep them.

    Suz, you know, I'm just starting to pay more attention to texture. I'm at the point where I need to upgrade several of my cheaper "test whether this is my style" items so I've been trying to make sure that the new, higher quality items have interesting and pleasant textures. And it certainly is adding an extra dimension of visual interest. Fall is the BEST time for this :D

  • Sona replied 8 years ago

    I missed this post earlier. I love the gamine- ness of these that shines through. and the combination of verticala nd horizontals tripes along with the orange toned family colors is really stunning!

  • kellygirl replied 8 years ago

    Killer haul. I love everything. That jacket is phenomenal on you and the tomato red ensemble in 10 is perfection. I love your choice of footwear--it looks so fun with the cognac shoes. Fab!

  • Aida replied 8 years ago

    Thank you Sona and Kelly! :D

  • Heather replied 8 years ago

    Aida, you are a bandit! Look at all of your awesome loot!

    I love it all!

    As requested, a few ideas:

    Perhaps your black dress paired with the fur trimmed vest?

    ON yellow gingham blouse, ON olive vest, denim skinnies and NW oxfords?

    Red stripe top, ON olive vest, skinnies, tall boots?

    The BR tweed jacket paired with your red skinnies and black engineer boots?

    I love the berets!

  • renae replied 8 years ago

    This is terribly repetitive of the above comments, but what a haul! I have been browsing for a faux fur vest that's not so abominable snowman-like, and I think you found it! Now off to find it online.

  • modgrl replied 8 years ago

    Awesome haul and WIW! What can I say, I love Jeans + Tweed so of course it is love at first sight!

  • Mellllls replied 8 years ago

    Well thar is the first fur vest I have seen and liked. You look great!

  • Aida replied 8 years ago

    Thanks for the feedback ladies!

    Heather, woo! You always have great ideas, I'm writing the whole lot down to try :)

  • Nadya replied 8 years ago

    Just have to add my WOW. Love how you pulled these pieces together!!!!!
