Labor Day haul: theory and Nine West

I took advantage of Labor Day sales this past weekend and hit up the outlets with my cousin... and came back with two unexpected items.

First up, theory Bindi Tailored blazer in indigo, size 4. I don't want to sound vain, but size 4?! Everything I own is 00, XS or petite sizes! Anyhow, size is just a number, right? :) This jacket was on the final sale rack, the last one in its size. My cousin actually tried it on first but it was kind of tight on her, so I tried it on... and I personally think it's a tad big on me. But at $75 (80% off), I figured I can just wear thicker layers underneath (that, or gain weight :P) because it was too good to pass up! I like how the sleeves could be rolled up so the lining peeks through -- a la boyfriend blazers, which I've been looking to find. So now I've got myself a two-in-one blazer, regular suiting and boyfriend style!

Another item I've been wanting are taupe/grey suede wedges. I felt so lucky to have found these Nine West Kleoo wedges in dust cloud, size 6 (non-outlet version sold here) at their outlet store! I haven't had a chance to wear them for long periods of time yet, but they are certainly comfortable walking around the house. The heel height is perfect for me, but the color is what I love about it the most -- a cool, taupe-y grey :) I'll have to spray these with some suede protectant first, but can't wait to wear them out!

  2. Such great find...was that at the Theory outlet? i was so sad to find no little jackets (or hardly ANY jackets) on the $75 rack this weekend. I saw the Bindi on Alterations Needed a while back and she said it ran small, which is probably why the 4 worked out! Love the gray shoes too...

  3. Congrats on your haul! I have a similar boyfriend jacket from Gap it was $65 after a coupon, haven't gotten to wear it out much lately.

    The wedges are very pretty. Gray is a good neutral for shoes.

  4. @Really Petite - Thank you! I definitely got super lucky :)

    @PetiteAsianGirl - Yes! I found the jacket on the sale racks at the theory outlet. It was $100, but the store had an extra 25% off this past weekend. Woohoo!

    The funny thing is, when I came home I googled theory Bindi (because I'm a dork and I like to read reviews hehe) and I saw Alterations Needed's post on it.

    @J - I'm dying to wear mine too, but it's still so hot here. Can not wait for fall!

  6. Theory has the best jackets and pants. Great find! You know, I bet they just sewed on the wrong label. ;o)

  7. The blazer is incredible, and only $75!!!! I am so jealous of you, I never find anything that well discounted at Theory outlets. It looks terrific on you.
