Tweet Last night, I ordered a $250 Kate Spade patent leather clutch (in the shape of a fan! Be still, my heart) from Bloomingdales.com. Today, I received an email that my order has been cancelled because they need some additional information that I didn’t provide in time (who expects a response to a non-work email / […]

Tweet One of the benefits of having blogged as long as I have is the the clearly noted purchases of years past. Going through my archives, I found many, many things that I’ve purchased and in retrospect, really shouldn’t, or I could’ve gone without. As I’m evaluating future purchases, I try to keep those shopping […]

Tweet Let me introduce you to the 3rd dress I’ve purchased in 2014: this 3/4 sleeve maxi dress from Old Navy, currently on sale for $25 + 30% off sale. I got it for just $15, and it’s one of the most comfortable dresses I’ve ever worn. I love it because it’s easier than putting […]

Tweet An almost $300 nylon bag (albeit one that gets RAVE reviews?) - I need you to Tell Me I Should Not. Here it is, the Lo and Sons’ O.M.G. bag at $275. I’m eyeing the Army Green or the Navy option. The O.M.G (Overnight & Medium Gym) bag was on sale a few days ago for select colors. […]

Tweet I’ve had a few of these posts where you, my dear readers, have dissuaded me from purchases that I know I shouldn’t make but I really want to make. (Thanks to everyone who talked me out of the $240 wedding hairband, by the way – talk about a bullet dodged! I’m really happy I […]

Tweet Hi guys, remember me? I’m back after 2 weeks of MIA as I wrapped up the summer internship, registered for classes, moved back in to my school apartment, etc. I’m happy to say that my summer internship worked out well and now I have a job for after graduation! Furthermore, this job pays cash […]

Tweet This is just a short post to admit… I have a problem. I just purchased 3 pairs of shoes from Ann Taylor, who is having 60% of sale items. This means I scooped up 3 pairs of leather sling-backs for just $40 each. This is mere minutes after I purchased a Boden USA sheath […]

Tweet CB and I are now the proud owners of a brand-new 2013 Honda Civic LX Sedan in Taffeta White. She is so pretty that she positively gleams. Our BABY! I first started thinking about a new car last summer, but a big reason for the delay is my dread of going to car dealerships! […]

Tweet It might be cliche to admit this, but I adore shoes. In fact, I first started Well Heeled Blog as a lifestyle and fashion blog devoted mainly to, you guessed, shoes. If you are a shoe-lover like I am, or if you just wonder HOW can people have so many pairs, check out this documentary, “God […]

Tweet There is a leggings vs. pants battle brewing out there. Heated words have been exchanged, emotions are running high, and women have been forced to take sides…? BuzzFeed recently detailed 23 reasons why leggings are the worst, calling leggings a “confusing and confused item of clothing.” Two days later, Slate came around with a retort: “leggings […]

Tweet I justify a lot of purchases under the guise of work or career-related reasons. A good friend of mine who landed an awesome consulting internship showed me his new gift to himself: a gorgeous Coach laptop bag with smooth dark brown leather and understated brass buckles. In return, I confessed my own splurge in […]

Tweet I never did get that lace Reiss dress I posted back in May of last year, and now I am really glad I didn’t. Because that means I feel less badly about splurge on TWO dresses from Reiss this time around. The structured sheath on the left is $108, and the crepe day shift […]

Tweet My last bonus check has arrived – taxes took out a big chunk, but I still had around $3,000 deposited into my account. The most sensible thing to do would be to save all of it for my car or tuition, but I made the executive decision to divert $250 to a more recreational […]

Tweet My current apartment is furnished with furniture thrifted from Craiglist, IKEA pieces, or hand-me-downs from the parents. In fact, our place has no piece of furniture that costs us more than $100. Now that I am moving across the country, I will need at least new furniture in my bedroom: a bed frame, mattress, […]

Tweet Planning a cross-country move has made me realize that 1. I cannot bring all of my wardobe with me, and 2. I don’t wear half the clothes in the my closet. Following in the footsteps of other personal finance bloggers, I’m having a little blog sale. So please let me know if you see […]
