absence makes the heart grow fonder

Hehe. I woke up ridiculously late today since I was up until sunrise working on my shop, lol--When I get into "work-mode" I don't stop until I feel like I've accomplished something. But that's besides the point...'cause my purchases arrived!! :D Woohoo!

First off, allow me to RAVE about the Topshop Waffle Lace Up wedges. They are sooo comfy for being 5.5 inches!! Must be the massive platform. They do, however, run small. I wear a US 10, so I ordered a UK8--which is the equivalent of a US 10.5 according to their website. They just barely fit my feet! Would probably fit a 9.5 perfectly--definitely not for someone who is an ACTUAL 10.5. These shoes work great for wide feet though, as the laces are 100% adjustable. :)

The folks at Torrid were sweet enough to send over a bunch of awesome stuff--this top was included! It's a mishmash of stripey-ness, and its got a tough little zipper detail at the neckline. Right up my alley! :) The skinnies are also from Torrid, and while the last few pairs they sent weren't the right fit/size for me, these Fragile "power stretch" jeans are perfection. They aren't ridiculously tight around the ankle, and fit everywhere else perfectly. Also, it has a higher waist, which completely eliminates any chance of muffin top! My only recommendation is to order a size down as the sizing is in "W" in 14W, 16W. I'm a size 16 bottom, and the 14W fit perfectly!

Yay! Can't wait for the upcoming OOTD's! :) Stay tuned :)

P.S. If you have a minute, please check out my shop! I've lowered a bunch of prices and am open to reasonable negotiation. Unfortunately, I can't negotiate shipping aside from combining items. All shipping has been calculated at cost. Sorry international shoppers! I know it sucks. :(  It's really the shipment of the first item that sucks--if you buy multiple items, the shipping only goes up a little bit, I think. For combined shipments, I will bring the items to the post office to get an accurate quote for you! :)
