Purchase of the Week

14 Apr

I’m sorry to say that I’ve been slacking on my Purchase of the Week posts lately. It’s partly because I’ve been trying to conserve funds, but mainly because I’ve been waiting to share some really great items. So for this Saturday I have not one, but three fantastic fashionable purchases for you.
I’m always on the look out for a great pair of sandals. I spotted these DV by Dolce Vita Archer sandals online. They had fantastic reviews and although I got them in black, they offer them in a  variety of colors. They’re the perfect gladiator sandal for the summer. Their classic style is contrasted by gold accents for added flair. They’re comfortable for my long NYC walks and best of all, they go with everything.


I’d personally rather run a marathon then deal with the hassel of finding a new pair of jeans. I recently realized I had no ankle or cropped jeans for the Spring and Summer months. My boss tipped me off on DL 1961 4 Way Stretch Ankle Jeans. I cannot say enough positive things about these pants. The 4 way stretch sucks everything in nice and tight. The length hits perfectly right at the ankle and the leg is skinny enough that I can still wear them with boots in the colder months. I could literally buy these jeans in every color and never get sick of them. They’re amazing.


I rarely pay for manicures, but always have painted nails. I don’t know if it’s all the colors that come with Spring, but lately I’ve been changing my nail polish every few days. I know I’ve written about Essie before, which you can find here, but my most recent obsession is Essie’s Turquoise & Caicos. This time I’ve paired it with Essie’s Set in Stones luxeffects polish. The sea-like turquoise is lovely to look at as I type away on my work computer. It has made my work day much more pleasant.

    I love Turquoise & Cacoas!! I bought I back in December when I needed something fun to remind me of spring and have been wearing it ever since. I pair it with another Essie luxe effect that I can’t remember the name of, but it’s a gold glitter. I get compliments on it all the time!

    I love these Dolce Vita sandals too. I have been trying to decide what color to get (I’m waivering between the turquoise, black and beige). It’s great that they have some padding too. I hate hard sandals. Great pick!

    I LOVE your nail polish combo! I may be convinced to try Essie. I got 4-way stretch skinny jeans lately too, something that is difficult for me because of thick, weirdly-shaped knees and legs which no amount of weight loss can fix. On my f*#ty-year-old bod, I am really loving “Dish” brand jeans lately. They are a Canadian brand, superior construction and durability with a great fit for a mature shape. Makes me feel almost . . . sexy!

    I love hearing people’s reviews on different brands and I’ve never heard of that brand of jeans and I’m very intrigued. I will have to go try them on at Bloomies! thanks for sharing! 🙂
