it bit me! i was waiting for it to happen and i think it hit a little later this year because we've had it so hot and dry but i wandered into a tj maxx today - which is becoming a store i shop at more than i care to admit - and found two amazing pieces for fall. and as the fashion bloggers like to say, they are both wear now and later pieces - a black lace top and torn denim. and yes i laid this stuff out on a rug and took a pic lol. #whatamidoing
the top is by guest editor which is a brand i've never heard of but that means absolutely nothing these days. i tried finding it online but i literally can't find a thing about this brand so maybe that says something. but i took two pics because i wanted to show the back of the shirt which has this cool seam detail down the back.
the jeans are joe's keagan (find them here, here and here) and i especially love them because they're a high-er rise (not high rise like that terrible 80s jean trend that's made a come back). as a mom i just appreciate not having to tug at my jeans all day. they run true to size, if anything a little small. i'm often between sizes and went up and they're perfect. p.s. to anyone who clicked on the saks link - how awful is that picture?! i promise they don't look like that on!!
some more black lace to try...
joie always does it right.
a pretty one from rebecca minkoff.
the classic dress version from DVF.
