Well I have not bought any clothes in the last half year. Most of my clothing purchases are made during the Summer and Winter sales. A lot of good quality clothes are significantly reduced in price, so why buy full price right? Here are some of my recent purchases:
1. Victoria by Victoria Beckham SS13 Mikado Silk Dress:
I have great admiration for VB and adore her clothing collection. Ever since it came out a few years ago, I’ve been dying to try them on. Finally Bergdorf Goodman started carrying her clothing and I was able to snatch up this gorgeous cut-out silk organza dress.

2. Helmut Lang FW12 Flipfront Jersey Dress:
It’s hard for me to determine if this dress looks nice on me or a mess of fabric. Helmut Lang’s fit for many things tend to be either awesome or chaotic, especially when they try to be “innovative” or do weird asymmetric tailoring lol

3. Helmut by Helmut Lang SS13 Stretch Moleskin Coat:
Love this coat! The fabric is soft like suede and is thick enough for fall. I plan to wear this as my everyday coat that’s both practical and a little edgy with the asymmetric cut. Only downside is that it attracts a lot of dust and cat hair…

4. T by Alexander Wang SS13 Jersey Dress:
I absolutely LOVE this dress! It’s gorgeous on and you can wear it with the draping side on the front or back. I prefer the back version as pictured here and the silver metal neckline detail adds the perfect touch! Not to mention I got this for 75% off with the last XS size from NM’s warehouse!

4. BCBG Maxazria FW12 Elouise Dress:
I loved this dress back from fall last year, but could not find my size on sale. Then recently while I was at my local BCBG, I found it again and it was also at 60% off! I know some people may think the print and hot pink stripes are too much, but I love the catchy combo. The fit is perfect on me too.
5. BCBG Maxazria SS13 Talulah Silk Dress:
Cute dress from far away, but I’m not so fond of the skirt… Seems puffier on me than what was depicted in the pictures.
5. Theory Jeshas Silk Pants:
I’ve been wanting a pair of silk pants for a long time, but nothing ever really worked for my shortness until now. It’s super comfy and perfect for those chilly summer days. I should mention that these were a steal at 42$ (an additional 50% off) compared to its original retail price.
6. HIP Jersey Pants:
Since I bought those Theory silk pants above, I’ve been pretty addicted to slinky loose pants. I found these at Nordstrom Rack for a great deal as well. Pair with a sweatshirt or simple T for that effortless look!
7. Topshop Polyester Long Skirt:
Another casual clothing purchase. I know there’s a lot of similar see-through skirts out there right now, but I’m not fond of the asymmetric ones for some reason. I like how these have 4 panels instead which I have not seen before.
8. H&M and R&W Casual Summer Tops:
Got a bunch of cute tops. I love the bright colors for summer. The H&M blue print tunic is my favorite!
