Trust Me, Buy These 19 Things
It’s Wednesday, which means it’s time for our weekly instalment of new arrivals, however, today we’re doing something a little different. Did you catch my Trust Me, Buy This post last time? If so, you're ready to start shopping. If not, read on.
While I’ll still be sharing some of my favourite fashion pieces as of late, this time, we’re giving it more of a personal spin, with the items I’ve not just been loving on the web but IRL too. With a little help from my shopping-focused Instagram account, @trustmebuythis, where I share my own snaps of items I’m into at the moment, I'm making this week’s post a little more personal. Some common themes to expect? Shoes, jeans, accessories—just some of the things I hoard— and of course a mix of high-end investment pieces as well as budget-friendly steals I think you’ll love.
Both I (lower) and my friend (upper) couldn't help but snag Gucci's latest block heel mules on a recent trip to Paris. I love the heel height because it's perfect for wearing all day or at night.
Anything that makes my denim look better is always a yes for me. This belt is easy to add to any outfit and just gives it a little something extra. It looks especially good with all-black, which I learned days after already snapping this pic.
I think these showstopping Tamara Mellon boots speak for themselves, but I will say that I found they run a half size big, so if you're ordering that's something to keep in mind. Also, since this photo does little to help in terms of styling ideas, I've found that my favourite way to wear them is with jeans, a sweater or turtleneck, and a blazer.
This outfit is from New York Fashion Week and is still one of my favourites. The cutout Proenza Schouler sweater just makes everything look cooler, and I never thought I'd find a pair of burgundy jeans that were so flattering.
I've been afraid to pull the trigger on white boots for some time now, and I finally found the perfect affordable pair that I don't feel guilty about likely ruining in the near future. Here, they're styled with my go-to Levi's wedgie jeans (can you tell I cut the hem myself?) and my newest hoodie, which I'm obsessed with thanks to the exaggerated metallic sleeves.
I deemed this shot of my husband Alex and I post-worthy because while I tend to stay away from men's fashion (it's highly confusing), I'd still like to endorse his choice in footwear because I have the same sneakers! If you're looking for a new comfortable shoe for the weekend, between these Nike Air Maxx 97s and Common Projects, you can't really go wrong.
As a self-proclaimed jean lover (and hoarder), nothing excites me more than a new trend in the denim world. Case in point, these DIY-inspired Mother jeans with a double waistband and frayed pocket.
