New Purchases! Tweed, Lace, Leather & a Blouse

Okay, I splurged. But only because Tobi was having a 30% off site-wide sale. Usually I would match with Revolve since their shipping is free, have wider selection and better customer service, but this time around Tobi's exclusive new arrivals were TOO cute to resist. Nonetheless, I bought 4 things that I hope will become new staples in my wardrobe.

Olivaceous Weave In & Out Jacket ($115 down to $80) and Ellison Sleek & Chic Blouse in Teal ($40 down to $28)
I've been lusting for a chanel-esque collarless tweed jacket for a while now, and I couldn't find one that really suited my style. Many were in cutesy colours like baby pink and pale blue, but I feel this black/grey/white one is easier to match and much more me. It features snap buttons and a zipper, but I don't see myself ever using it. I do like that it adds interest into the jacket. After 30% off this piece came to around $80.

The teal blouse by Ellison was purchased to add more light-weight and feminine pieces to my closet. I've been leaning more towards malleable blouses over structured shirts because it's easier to dress them both up and down. Also at an extra 30% off, the blouse ended up being $28.

Alythea Lace to Lace Shorts ($45 down to $31.50) and t.cec Under the Leather Shorts ($40 down to $28)
Finally, I bought 2 pairs of shorts. I currently only own a pair of Talula black satin shorts from Aritzia that have been featured in many of my posts (1, 2, 3, 4, 5). I felt like I needed a change... without changing much. Though both of these new shorts ARE black, different materials can definitely change up an outfit.

Lace, on the one hand, can make any outfit feel more flirtatious and girly, while leather, on the other hand, can add a bit of edginess and rocker-chic that every girl needs to channel her inner rebel. The lace shorts were $31.50 and the leather shorts were $28, both at 30% discount.

Kerri also purchased some things from this sale. Check out her picks!

Readers- Did any of you purchase anything from the sale?


  1. I've been doing so much online shopping these days so I resisted this sale! But I like what you picked up - especially the tweed jacket.

  2. Hi! Can you give your specs and what size you bought in the Olivaceous tweed jacket so I can gauge what size would fit me? It's final sale now so I'd hate to get the wrong size! I'd really appreciate it. Thanks!

  3. Hi there- I got a size small, but returned it because it wasn't as good quality (not lined) I expected for the price of the jacket. 


Thanks for visiting! I'd love it if you leave me a comment :)
