Modcloth Sale- subtitle I Love Minimalism and Modcloth. It’s a Conundrum.

red dress**This post contains affiliate links. If you buy something from them, I will get a portion of the sale. My opinions are my own, and I really do basically get everything I own from Modcloth, with my own money.**

So, I just got an order from Modcloth. The trick is, starting today they have one of the best sales I’ve ever seen. Stuff I just bought is now 40% off. It’s making me crazy. Of course now I want to buy more stuff. They have this thing where they sell things in just one color, and slowly roll out new colors. It really sucks me in.

Remember when I talked about how much I love this red dress? Well, now they have a cream version, and it’s super cute and on sale. Did I ever mention how this dress has pockets? I really wish my husband didn’t hate it, but since he does I’m saving some money. For reference if you buy this, they’re not kidding when they say UK sizes are a lot smaller than US sizes. I usually wear a 10 in US sizes, and I got this dress in a 16 and it fits perfectly. Don’t say I didn’t warn you 🙂

A few more pretty things that I’m drooling over, but do not need (sales, I’m telling you… sucking me in!):

black gingham dress with lace back

gorgeous burgundy coat

super cute bag- I’ve been wanting the blue version of this for so long

soft pajamas

And for what I actually bought! I am quickly realizing that since I hurt both my calf and my knees, I can’t wear heels anymore for every day. All winter I have been wearing boots, but spring is coming fast and I have zero flats that aren’t boots. I’m going to be barefoot! I decided to try two different flats that aren’t even part of the sale. I’m hoping one of them is comfortable.

ballet like flats

simple, beige flats

iphone5/5s charger – I wish I didn’t need this so much, but I do. I am trying to come to terms with the fact that my phone rarely leaves my hand…

rainbow umbrella – I want this to go with my bright red raincoat and boots!

Does anyone have some super comfortable flats that they could recommend for wearing to the office? Our dress code is business casual.

Pretty Things to Buy in the New Year

TOMS boots*this post contains a Modcloth affiliate link. All opinions are my own, and if you click on this link to buy the coat I will get a small percentage on the sale.

TOMS ‘Desert’ Wedge Booties are so adorable. I’ve never bought a pair of TOMS before, but my coworker has these and I love them. She also said that they were more comfortable walking around the mall yesterday than her athletic shoes are! What?! I need them. I can’t justify the $88.95 price tag this month, but they are on my wish list.

I am also seriously lusting over these Sanctuary Original Grease Ponte Leggings in brown. I recently bought the black ones when they were on sale, and they are perfect. They have fake pockets, which make them look more like real pants and possible to wear to work. They’re thick enough to not be see through and to keep me warm. They don’t slip down too badly. The Fitnessista recommended them and at first I hesitated (her body is perfect- mine is not), but she was so right. If you need leggings, buy these!

Next up: gorgeous Kate Spade Idiom bangles. I want to buy these in every color, but every time I wear a bracelet I take it off two seconds after I get to work. I can’t stand the clanging against my keyboard. I’m thinking of testing the waters with this ivory one, though. It would be so cute with my favorite ivory Kate Spade bag.

The Carefully Chosen Coat on Modcloth*. I have a coat similar to this so I won’t buy it, but it’s very cute with it’s black and white houndstooth, and a fantastic deal on sale for $49.99. Modcloth always has a way of making me want to buy things!

Happy shopping 🙂
