This location is by far one of my favorites so far, how beautiful is it here! This adorable location is steps from my office in downtown Boston, near the Boston Harbor and Tia's an adorable restaurant with a great outdoor patio. We walk by it often and always say we need to take photos here before the leaves die during the winter time. We finally got a chance to get over and I love the way the photos came out. I also love this outfit. No lie I have has this dress for at least 5 years. I bought it from Forever 21! (yea and I still have it and it still fits) I have also have had this leather jacket forever from TJMaxx, it is my go to jacket in the fall time. I love the combo of leopard and leather, some people may think it is a little over the top but I adore it and I actually think it is pretty "neutral" to be honest.
I recently had an elevator conversation with a friend at work that sometimes you get stuff form forever 21 or "fast fashion" stores and wear it one time and really you get your moneys worth but then there are other times you get stuff and it becomes a closet go to and holds up for years! You just never know, some of my favorite pieces from my closet are from Forever 21 and many years old! That is why, yes buying quality is smart and always lasts you longer, and sometimes fits better, and if I could afford it I would buy many more "quality" pieces, but if you shop smart you can make a $12.80 dress turn into a .05 cent price per wear dress! How can you beat that! Who doesn't love a good deal. For those of you who have been following along you know that I always mix high and low pieces and pride myself in finding pieces that look like they are from the swankiest stores, when in reality I paid $5 for it then it was on sale for $3 at Old Navy! <---(p.s. get 25% off with this coupon code!) At the end of the day I don't care what brand it is if I feel good in it and if it is what I was looking for!
