This round of my NAS purchases is mostly essentials and therefore pretty boring. Three items were from the "needs" list and two fro the "wants".
pic 1-3 NYDJ ponte skinny pants. One of the "needs": I got rid of my Gap leans because they were too tight and needed a pair of ponte skinny pants to wear with tunics and tall boots. Suz assured me they are not too tight :-) I would not wear them with a shorter top like this IRL, just happened to wear one at that time.
pic 4 features 2 items: Halogen red skirt and Only Mine polka dot sweater. Both of them were purely wants! I was looking for a red skirt for years and this one is perfect in color. I also ordered a purple one but it was too muted for my wardrobe but the red was a keeper! My not very comfortable teal lace skirt is going out to make room for this darling (pic 5)
Polka dot sweater was also on my wish list for at least a year just because it is fun! It is also very soft and nice quality and I hope it will work well in my wardrobe. I have sized up to XL: L was fine but I would not be able to layer a shirt under it comfortably and this is how I like to wear sweaters now.This sweater is replacing my brown lurex sweater which is too stretchy for my liking (pic 6)
pic 7-8 Foxcroft white shirt This is purely an essential replacement for me. My current single white shirt has seen better days and is really embarrassing to wear. I was on the hunt for a longer white shirt for ages. This one is not non-iron but pretty crisp and I hope long enough. It is a bit roomy through the body and I am not sure yet if I should tailor it more or not.
pic 9-10 Born combat boots in charcoal to replace my deceased Steve Madden boots (pic 11). This was the need #1! However this is the item I am still not sure about. I love the color (dark bluish grey) and the comfort is great but I am not sure about the look because the toe looks very round and big. True it adds to the comfort level as my toes have a lot of room to move and not squished and I need these boots mostly for heavy walking activities. Even if I hesitated I still got them because I have such hard time to find anything in my size. I decided to keep them for now and see if I get used to the toe shape: if something better comes along I can always return them (they are already gone in my size from Nordstrom). I am also encouraged that Angie likes them and thinks they are good for me so I am hopeful here...
This concludes my NAS haul. As you see I did not get anything very exciting, for that you have to wait for Suz's post! :-)
