this weekend's satisfying buys

my LBD from esprit arrived! i was a little uncertain of how this dress would fit me. i ordered the size zero and miraculously it FITS PERFECTLY! normally dresses similar to this that i've tried on at H&M and other stores run big on the top part. it fits fine from the waist down, but it looks a size too big on my shoulders. this though fits just right and isn't too tight or too loose.

i love it because i can wear both for work and for play. =) in heels and in flats!

i was not intending to buy this but im glad i finally did! this is the sam edelman carrie 2 flat here seen in BLUE SNAKE, i have it in camaflouge (which is a color that i haven't seen around too much). i bought i in a 6 1/2 and the 7 fit as well but i figured the shoe will stretch (as it's an eensy bit snug). this gorgeous flat i got for $48.99 at DSW! they are having a great great sale right now and so many shoes are on sale!!!! you have to love it.

i had lunch with a girlfriend today and afterwards we decided to walk off the calories by heading over to metro center to H&M and Zara. after much thought i had returned the dress i bought last week yesterday and wasn't intending to buy anything today. but lo and behold the shoes that i had wanted last week suddenly appears in my size!!! it is the 2 toned (black and cream) pointy patent flat that is a steal at $35. so yes i bought that sucker!

all in all, very satisfying purchases. being on a shoe binge i may return to DSW tomorrow, there are afterall more shoes in the sea!

The snakeskin is super cute for this time of year. Are they comfortable??

they are incredibly comfortable! :) the size runs a little bit small so you may want to try your regular size plus half a size up and compare which one fits better. =)
