newbury stroll

After dropping off Melissa at the airport to embark on her Roman adventure, the roommie and I decided to stick around Boston for an impromptu stroll around the city.  We ended up walking up and down Newbury street and doing some fantastic bargain hunting.  I fell hopelessly in love with this “brushstroke” clutch at Kate Spade, but alas had to grit my teeth, take a deep breath and walk on by its high price tag.  Instead, I scoured a few basement blowout sales and  came home with a Free People shirt AND dress for $50, and an adorable top from Zara that cost me a mere $20.  Cha-chiiiing!  Here’s a peek at the Zara find:

I’m pretty in love with this shirt  It’s got a very ‘now’ peplum silhouette, and the sheerness of the lace and be turned up or toned down by implementing different undergarments for various occasions.  I’m already picturing it with faded red cropped jeans and boots for day and a tight, black knee-length pencil skirt and pumps for night.  Can’t wait to bust it out!
