Blame The Bloggers

I totally blame the majority of my on-line shopping on bloggers.  One of my gorgeous, lady, blog crushes will wear something and I obsess about it.  For days.  And weeks.  And in the case of that leopard coat down there, for years.  

The biggest culprits are Rachel and Julia, but I've lusted many times over items worn by Erin, Emily, Natalie, Caycee, and Cassie.  

I'm pretty sure that Rachel owns these lovely boots in either the low or high heel in every color.  I love them all and would take any of them.  The blue, currant, and praline colors are amazing.  I swoon every time I see them.  





Emily wore a leopard coat a few times last winter.  I seriously think about it at least once a week when I'm getting dressed.  (I know, I have serious issues.)  I can't find the one she has, but this one is better because it's affordable!!!!  I'm sooooooo tempted.



Erin had me reeling over this sweater coat.  I think I've been to the Anthropologie site at least 10 times to make sure it's still there.  Yep.  I'm still safe...for now.  



Julia just wore this hat the other day and she looked so good.  Well, when does she not look good?  That hair, that skin, those gorgeous clothes....  


Both Rachel and Julia wear pleated midi skirts frequently.  I seriously need one for the upcoming Christmas parties on my calendar.  I have blouse and shoes.  I'm on the verge.  It's in my cart.  I'm so close.  



I know that these are so "blogger", but they're lovely and I want them.  There.  I said it.  Please don't judge.  I think of them as the equivalent to the Kasbah Wool Rug that everyone and their sister has.  I haven't jumped on that bandwagon (yet).  




p.s.  Why do I drink Baby Mama Juice?  Because there's a snafu with my annual girls' trip in December and we may have to reschedule.  Boo.  Childcare can be impossible sometimes.

  2. Get the shoes if you are still thinking about them! This is how I felt about the rug...and now that I have it I think I love it more than any blogger out there because I waited extra long for it!! Do it, you deserve it.

  3. I have the same problem! I have ordered so many things in recent months because of blogging! FYI, get the Valentino's on AliExpress.com - I got my pink and black ones...the pink ones even came in a Valentino box and have the Valentino label stitched in. Can't tell any difference! I think I paid around $60 a pair!

  4. hot damn to that leopard coat! buy buy buy! dangit, again, if i was in charleston i'd come to the rescue and babysit!! side note: when i went to the piperlime site there was a 30% off one full-price item...i think that's a sign you have to get the coat.

  8. I blame the bloggers as well! Just an FYI, Rachel and Emily(I'm sure others have it too) have 3rd party cookies and make money every time you shop at certain sites(Nordstrom's etc.). I hope you are able to make money as well....

  9. I wore my J.Crew Herringbone vest out the other night (aka as you well know the blogger vest) and some girl on the street stopped me and asked me where I got it and I was like "helllllo it's the J. Crew Herringbone Vest" and then I realized that the blogging world makes us totally lust over pieces ;-) Those boots are amazing btw!

  11. I used to have a leopard coat (years ago). I'm still mad for giving it away! I LOVE those suede over the knee SW boots. Can you please get them so I can live vicariously through you? :-)
