The Last 5 Things I bought (myself)

Just because it's the holidays doesn't mean I am not incessantly thinking about myself and the things I desire to purchase for the most important person in my life (me). Why would that drive cease just as the sales are beginning?!

Anyhoo, as an exercise in--I don't know what--here are the last 5 items I bought myself in this most wonderful, giving time of year:

1. Valentino Tango pumps on mega sale from Ssense. The two year wait has ended.

2. A vintage cardigan with a black fox-fur collar
3. Merino wool socks from Falke
4. Knockoff CastaƱer wedges for Mexico. Ordered from Bluefly with the black lace-up, came with a white one. May be too lazy to return.
5. Reformation Chemise dress

This was a total saga. I bought it when Ref had their 30% off sale right after Thanksgiving, dress ended up being too small through the hip (I don't know what possessed me to buy an XS). Tried to exchange after the dress was full-price again, found out that they don't "do" exchanges. They will refund you what you paid for the dress but then I would have had to buy it at full price. Needed it for a wedding so I bit the bullet and ordered it in a S at full price ($248). Got it home, decided it just wasn't super flattering on me, returned it again. It's now on sale for $99. If your shoulders and hips are the same width, go for it. The Velvet is gorgeous.
