Assuming that I manage to stay the same clothing size, I should hopefully be able to find something to purchase with the nifty Aritzia gift card I received this Christmas. Aritzia is one of my favourite stores that I rarely purchase from, seeing as how I can never get over how their $100+ average pricing is supposed to be "affordable." Get over yourself Aritzia. Charging me $55 for a scrap of fabric that you call a "bra-lette," but which is made to support the boobs of an 11 year old? Plus, your consistent "sale section" consisting of items that are *gasp* $5 off?! However do I resist thee.
Anyways, despite my crone-ish complaining about Aritzia, I always shamelessly drag Mr. Artist inside and love every Aritzia item I own. Yep, I'm a shameless hypocrite, so help me figure out what I should buy with my gift card!
Lately, I've been mulling over the idea of buying pants that are not denim, nor leggings. What can I say, I guess I'm growing up! These Wilfred Casbah pants have that stylish sweatpant look that favour it for anything from tanks and cardys on weekends, to patterned blouses for evenings and the price isn't bad either for $54.99! Alternately though, the T. Babaton Callum pants have a similar silhouette, but are made of a chicer silk crepe material for $80.
The second possibility is this comfy Wilfred Bistro Cardigan. Although I already own a long heather gray boyfriend cardigan, a pink/black cardigan, a black cardigan, a grey sweater cardigan, a navy cardigan and a purple cardigan, I don't have a dark grey cardigan, so this is a perfectly legit option. Right???
Finally, the third option I'm pondering is another blouse. I've been obsessed with sheer and silky blouses this year as they're great work and play options that always make you look put together. Plus, they look great under CARDIGANS (yes, I'm obsessed). This T. Babaton Bergen blouse is made of silk georgette that has that perfect drapey fit I'm in love with and comes in a variety of colors. I'm pondering either the black, or lake (emerald green) shades, but neither photograph very well, so I posted up this lovely creamy nude option.
Which do you think I should go for?
