January 2013 Purchases

We have a good friend's wedding coming up in March, and I finally was able to buy a dress I have been stalking for a few months. This will be perfect! I wanted something ladylike to wear, that will not upstage the bride. :) I think this will be the perfect dress for the occasion.  Also, I can easily wear this to work as well. I have been looking for the perfect dress with a peter pan collar and this fits that need.

In 2012, I spent way too much on clothing. My goal in 2013, is to only buy pieces to fill holes in my wardrobe, and keep my spending to a minimum.  Hopefully, I can stick to it! I will post a review once it arrives.

I have also purchased a few things from LL Bean Signature recently, and have to say I am very impressed with the quality of the line. It reminds me so much of the J. Crew line from years ago, that was so classic.

These were my two purchases:

I ordered an 8 Petite, and found that this fit true to size.  The madras print is beautiful and goes well with many things I have in my wardrobe.

I seem to be on an Anchor kick still this year. Love anchor prints, and bought this very popular sweater after seeing it on a blogger, I regularly read. This is now sold out online:

Adorable, heavy wool sweater. It fits very fitted and its best to size up if you can.

Loving all of my winter purchases, and looking forward to more style choices for 2013!
