Recent Purchases: Veronica Beard, Reformation, Eric Javits

I know I just did a recent purchases post last week about some of my sale scores, but I thought I’d show you some of my other goodies/full price purchases as well. Yes, I’ve been very, very bad.

First up – the most practical purchase, this excellent hat. I love my Eric Javis wide brim hat so much – I pretty much wear it every day – and it’s one of those pieces I know will last me years. So I ended up buying another one – a smaller brimmed fedora.

And of course, I’ve already worn it tons. I chose the black band as I almost always have something black on, and I find the fedora style a little easier to wear for certain occasions.  It’s also handy on the playgrounds – I can’t tell you how many times I’ve smacked myself on the head on the bottom of a play structure because my larger sunhat has blocked my view, it’s truly embarrassing. Highly recommended.

Lately, I’ve had an obsession with the brand Veronica Beard. I don’t know where it came from, because I rarely “fall in love” with contemporary brands (I’d rather do either Zara or just wait for premium designer to go a zillion percent off), but for some reason I’ve been VB crazy.

I basically expect all contemporary to go on sale), so I ended up just biting the bullet for now. I love the lace details – it really reminds me of Valentino. Unfortunately I have no idea how it looks on yet, but here’s a very convincing example from the Veronica Beard Instagram. Continue Reading
