Tuxedo Waistcoat & ZARA Haul

GUESS WHAT! This is my 100th  post! :) Yay me!

Now, back to your regular scheduled programming...

Couple nights ago I swung by Zara downtown after work to find my beloved crepe wedge shoes. To my dismay, the red beauties were no where to be found, but I ended up leaving zara with a huge bag of goodies instead. As nice as it is to have a shopping buddy, I always seem to shop better alone. More efficient that way. So I left with 2 blouses, a vest, a pair of pants, and a jacket- all for $156 after tax. I thought it was a pretty decent score.

Today's outfit post features 2 of the 5 new additions to my already bulging closet: the black tuxedo vest and the high waisted skinny pants.

Zara vest (here); Fluxus burn out tee in black (on sale! mulberry, walnut, neptuneoff-whitecoast, black);
F21 tank; Zara skinnies (here); Qupid 'Revive' boots (here, similar)

These are seriously the most slimming pants ever. They just suck everything in and push up what needs to be pushed up! Reminds me of those TNA supplex pants but not really. They're stretchy denimy material, come in an AWESOMELY long inseam, and the rise goes up to just under my bellybutton. The truest colour of these pants are in the first picture :)

I really like them. For $19.99 you can't go wrong.

The tuxedo vest is really nice. I got it to jazz up some plainer outfits. Here, I'm just wearing a Fluxus burn-out t-shirt (here too!) underneath but I think the vest adds a nice touch. Sorry there isn't a better picture from the front. This one was also $19.99.

Finally, here's my haul! OR actually, 4/5 parts to my haul. One blouse I couldn't find online so this will have to do!

Skinny Jeans, $19.99 (here); Cool Wool Waistcoat, $19.99 (here)
Silk Top, $29.99 (here); Double Breasted Trench Coat, $39.99 (here)
