Re: Jubilant July Hauls

Wow! What an awesome month! I'm tired of getting hair products in subscription boxes too. Especially when they don't work all that well. I swear the last Birchbox shampoo and conditioner I used made a bunch of my hair fall out. I think it was called No. 4. I do like the Rusk texture spray from Glossy, though. The one from Ipsy works well, too.

This is kind of a late June/July collection of buys (and I'm missing some stuff because I am horrible at gathering all of my products together for pictures haha).Screen Shot 2014-07-05 at 10.37.59 PM.png

I got a small makeup haul:
- MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Lightscapade
- the Buxom promo from Sephora
(not pictured)
- Shiseido 10oz. Benefit Wrinkle24 Softener for my mom 
- MAC Fix+ to go size
- Sephora Daily Brush Cleaner

and everything else: 
- DavidsTea Mugs (They were on sale!) -- Nordic Mug, Bubble Mugs, and Latte Mug
- Doc Martens (for work)
- John Fluevog Mason Bag

It's been an expensive couple of weeks! Luckily, I got a second job for the summer. Smiley Tongue

JOHN FLUEVOG!!! I'm obsessed with Fluevogs!!! I've yet to buy any of his shoes because I haven't been able to try them on anywhere and I'm nervous I'll order the wrong size, but they are such a fun and funky style! This is an awesome haul!

Re: Jubilant July Hauls

I love John Fluevog, too! I actually got a pair of the classic Angel Soles from a neighbour maybe 5 or 6 years ago... They last FOREVER... I'm just needing to get them resoled now and they were already used when I got them. I'm not really sure on the sizes either since the ones I have are 2 big for me (I just use 2 pairs of socks aha). But you should come on down to Vancouver! We have 2 freestanding stores!! And one is this crazy glass building that is built in what used to be an alleyway between 2 old, old buildings. I love it.

Re: Jubilant July Hauls

Okay, that bag is SUPER adorable!! 

Re: Jubilant July Hauls

Haha thank you! It's actually super huge! I'm pretty sure it could fit everything in that picture with room to spare! but it's also super sturdy and there's metal bumps(?) on the bottom so the leather doesn't wear out. I'm in love :3

Re: Jubilant July Hauls

So I bought a bag! And it was completely different from the ones I was considering. Instead, I popped into the Coach store during their semi-annual sale and picked up this cutie:

It's the perfect size, I can wear it as a cross body, it's a nice color that goes with all of my outfits, I like the shape of it, AND my husband agreed that it looks great on me. Smiley Happy Love it!

Re: Jubilant July Hauls

Ooo nice choice! I have the same bag in coral and I love it. It has been with me all spring and summer long

Re: Jubilant July Hauls

oooooooooohhhhh!!! Love it!!  Smiley Surprised

Re: Jubilant July Hauls

I love all things Coach.  This is very pretty.

Re: Jubilant July Hauls

Glad you found a purse! Guess we both went with something different than what we were initially thinking of Smiley Wink

Re: Jubilant July Hauls

As I mentioned in your other thread when you were deciding which bag to buy, I said the majority of my bags are Coach. So Of course I'm excited for your purchase!!!! You will wear it beautifully. It's dangerous because I live too close to a Coach outlet. 

Re: Jubilant July Hauls

Also not a fan of purses with their insignia all over them. I looooove the look of leather.  This is a great purse, Lari. Glad you found something you like.

Re: Jubilant July Hauls

That is such a cute, versatile purse! I love that it'll keep it's shape and go with everything. It's the kinda bag i'd go hunt for, but right now i'm sticking to cheap purses, because I like having a lot of options. One day i'll get something nice though Smiley Happy

Thank you so much, Curious! I keep telling myself I need to try to get accustomed to cheaper purses so I can save some more money, but honestly, I just have downright expensive tastes. I always lust after the Valentinos and Proenza Schoulers when I'm in Nordstrom, and it's ridiculous how out of budget they are for me. But I buy bags very, very infrequently, and I use them to death, so I can easily justify spending a few hundred on a purse -- and this one was extremely reasonable, so I felt even less guilty. Smiley Happy That and my husband was the biggest enabler ever.

I think needing to have a lot of great purses is a feature of one's twenties and thirties. In my late twenties I got to the stage where I felt I literally needed a new purse every month, and I was buying LV, Chanel, Marc Jacobs, Prada, and Mui Mui, so I spent waaaay tooooo much, but I do now have an awesome collection to pass on to my daughter who turns 9 this year Smiley Happy 

 

Since I turned 40, I find I am far less into buying multiple cute purses, and more focused on the durability of purses for frequent flying. The year I turned 40 I bought a giant LV purse, which I've used for work ever since. The other BIG CHANGE since I turned 40 is that I am now utterly obsessed with skincare and make up, and prefer to invest in these areas, as it is imperative I look good for work.

 

So in effect I swapped one addiction for another ;-)

Have you ever checked out the Coach Outlet website? They have purses from both the regular store and the factory store, all at pretty amazing prices. It's not 'open' all the time - they do events that last anywhere from days to a week or two. They have some really great stuff. Highly recommended.

Re: Jubilant July Hauls

This is a beautiful bag! It makes me think twice about always walking by the Coach store at the mall now. I love the colour and the mix of textures. 

Re: Jubilant July Hauls

I love it, too! The Coach store is something I have a love-hate relationship with. Sometimes I'll walk by the storefront, and I'll be seriously unimpressed with the entire collection of the season. And sometimes I'll walk by and find at least 5 that I'm immediately drawn to. I find that this happens often for most designer bags, actually.

 

There are some higher-end bag designers and styles that I really truly love and wish I could buy, but that's for when I roll in the millions (hahaha fat chance). So I'll just lust from afar. Smiley Wink

Re: Jubilant July Hauls

Oh what an awesome season transitional piece!!!  Loving the colour! 

Re: Jubilant July Hauls

That's what I love about it! The color is appropriate for more than just the summer/spring seasons. I could see myself wearing this in the winter. Smiley Happy Thanks, hearts!
