Real Fall Clothes

Happy Tuesday!

Instead of the usual inspiration boards with tons of clothes I love and lust over, I have created a REAL board. All these items are pieces that I already have and I will be putting this look together as soon as the weather allows me! SOON I hope! I am ready for cooler weather! The one thing I don't have is this YSL lipstick, I saw it on Emily's blog and really want to try it! I might just search for a comparable Revlon one until I know I like this shade! I feel like the deep blackberry is gorgeous though! 

I don't think I have ever talked about one of the best shopping stops in AZ, LAST CHANCE. Let me preface this with saying this store is not for everyone, you either love it or hate it. I LOVE IT.
Last Chance is owned by Nordstrom. After merchandise is discontinued, out of season or returned it goes to LAST CHANCE. Lots of items go to Nordstrom Rack as well but the final stop is LAST CHANCE. I believe there are only 2 of these in the U.S. and we are lucky enough to have one right here in Phoenix. This store is always hit or miss, and you have to be prepared to search, dig and be patient. It's crowded and loud but you can find some great items. Now the reason for me going off on this tangent is that these boots in my little inspiration board were a LAST CHANCE find back in June. I walked out that day with 7 paris of boots. They are were priced around $60-$70 and that day they were an additional 50% off. I sent 4 of them to my girlfriend in NJ, she actually needs tons of boots for the freezing weather over there. I love being a personal shopper! Ok back to the boots below, I think I got these for $35 and when I googled them they retail for $199.00! Even though B wasn't too happy with my winter shopping in June, it was worth it and I'll be so happy I have lots of boots when the cooler weather finally decides to grace us in AZ!

  14. Funny story: in our household, it's my HUSBAND who loves LC! He took me there recently and picked out a pair of amazing boots for himself that were $30 in less than 15 minutes. It's such an amazing place!! Not a fan of the open fitting room though :/
