loving lately: shopping victories.

this summer i've done a little bit of shopping and found some great picks. here are a few of my favorites (and a new addition to my wishlist!) 
- i have been searching for the perfect trench coat for months. i thought i found a winner when i ordered the collection icon trench from jcrew, 40% off the original price. when i got the coat i fell in love with the gorgeous fabric and lining but when i tried it on at home, i was disappointed. it felt long and frumpy for my short 5'4" frame (lesson: i can't do double-breasted coats). BUMMER. so, i've decided that if i am not in LOVE with something i NEED to return it and stop justifying why i should keep it. And i remembered to shop your closet! i already have another coat (the downtown field jacket), that i appreciate even more now for it's fit (i bought the xs) and it's wear-with-anything olive green color (win!).
- i am loving my nameplate necklace c/o of ONecklace - it's perfect when i want to channel my inner carrie bradshaw :) the site is great for affordable custom nameplate and monogram necklaces and quick delivery. 
- my feet are SUPER happy in flats, so i am reluctant to buy heels (even 1" inch heels). i've had my eye on Marais USA espadrille wedges sandals this summer, so when i saw that they were 40% off at shopbop, i couldn't resist trying them out.... and i am glad i did! they are even prettier in person!! i love the retro design and the grosgrain ribbons and i can totally handle the itty-bitty "heels".
-and finally, i've got my eye on BaubleBar's mini or midi pave links bracelets. i had the original pave bracelet on my wishlist but the smaller sizes would be a much better fit.  

have you had any shopping victories or lessons lately?
