After work, I went to the Halloween store near Union Square. I have to confess-I LOVE HALLOWEEN, and I really enjoy going to that store anytime of the year. However, I won't tell you what I bought because that will ruin the costume SURPRISE. I'll give you a hint-I've already got some mosaic chips from the craft store. Hmmmm........
It's starting to get chilly, FINALLY! Not that it was every excruciatingly hot this summer, but I do enjoy Fall. And I enjoy my fall clothes so much more than spring/summer.
I even got to bust out one of those many coats I mentioned a few posts ago when I came to the realization that I have an over abundance of material items.

Thank goodness for birthday gift cards. Just as I've almost made it midway through the month, or midway through my self imposed "Wallet-Lockdown" (which consists of me buying NO new clothing or material objects using money of my own for the entire month of October. With a tiny exception to this rule known as HALLOWEEN). Yes, I took my gift cards and a previous store credit and high-tailed it to Sephora after work.
I bought a few of my Bare Minerals essential products for everyday use, including the SPF 15 MATTE powder foundation...very excited to try that out; I usually just go for their regular stuff, haven't tried the "MATTE". And I got myself some lipstain, a new black sparkly eyeliner, and because of my b-day month being October, I scored a trio of lipglosses as my little birthday treat courtesy of Sephora.
Oh, and I had a 10% off coupon for reaching the ranks of Beauty Style Insiders, or something like that.
I walked away with two gift cards still completely in tact--YES! I can go back soon and buy more goodies at no cost to me. Thanks friends for the lovely gift cards, you're the best!!!
Today I pulled out a printed corduroy blazer that I've had for a few years now. It's a bit ridiculous that I have yet to give this up. First of all, I scored it for super cheap on the pathetic Old Navy sale racks. Second of all, it doesn't have a lapel, which is usually not one of my go-to details when it comes to a blazer. And thirdly, it's OLD NAVY! So why am I so stuck on this? I only wear it 1-2x a year if that!
I don't know what it is, maybe it's the print, maybe it's just that it actually fits ok for being some mass-marketed item (which believe me with an ill-proportioned body as my own, finding bulk consumer goods that fit decently can sometimes be a feat).
Whatever the case, it's what I chose to wear for the day--I was fine this morning, not so much the case after work, it was down right cold!

*Blue skinny jeans-Uniqlo
*Brown suede boots-Carlos Santana
*Brown wooden earrings-H&M
If I thought today was chilly after work, whatever shall I wear come Friday??? The high temp is only 49degrees! I'm a bit excited actually! Bring on the coats (now, which one to wear?)!!!!
