Still Possessin'

It's almost been a year since I last posted! Not exactly sure why I got the urge to come around... maybe it's the fact that I can't easily search a clothing item and see how people are wearing it. Anthro bloggers don't post their outfits/reviews with full descriptions as much as they used to, which is a bit disappointing. Oh well, it's not like I do it either.

Anyhoo, I thought I'd show what I've been buying lately. The possessin' is still going strong, unfortunately. I say unfortunately 'cause I have a big wedding coming up, I need to be more mindful!

Madewell Sweatshirt Dress

I'm not kidding when I say that I've been wanting this dress forever. Every time I passed Madewell after winter was over, it was never on sale. The weather started to get warmer and knew it must go on sale someday, but figured it wouldn't be available by that time. Imagine my surprise when I found it on sale last week in store, marked down with an additional 30% off. Score.

Also, whaddya know, there are a bunch of bloggers modeling this dress online ;)

Gap Open-stitch Infinity Scarf

I had a lot of Rewards Certificates on hand, so I stopped by Gap to see if I could find something. I was about to walk out when I saw this scarf on a mannequin. As if I don't need any more scarves... but I loved the look and feel! I bought one of the last remaining scarves, along with some tanks.

Anthropologie Maeve Hexprint Maxi Skirt [in orange]

Yet another item I've been sleeping on. I first noticed it modeled on a mannequin in the Fashion Island store back in April:

I couldn't wait anymore and bought it last week after I saw another girl wearing it while browsing the sale rack at Anthro. I adore maxis!

Repost: Shoes for Sale

I never got around to selling these shoes from last time, so I'm reposting in the hopes of freeing myself from things I do not use. I'm moving and just need to purge!

DV Dolce Vita Archer [in mint stella]
Size 7.5
NIB $45 $35 shipped

The following was also listed for sale on the Effortless Anthropologie Trade Market on Facebook.

Anthropologie All Black Hallowed Halls Oxfords
Size 7
Black/White Tweed w/ Soft Bow
NIB $95 $85 shipped

Like I mentioned previously, I attached non-slip grip pads from Payless since they look slippery. Average reviews say the shoe runs about a half size small.

If interested, please email me at debbie (dot) possessions (at) gmail (dot) com. Thank you!

Cross Off the List

A major want has been met.

Marc by Marc Jacobs Petal to the Metal [in nude]

My friend, who works for one of the Gap brands, occasionally sends me friends & family promotional codes. I didn't think I'd use it this time around, but after a quick peek at my Wouldn't it be nice? wishlist, I saw that this Marc by Marc Jacobs bag was marked down on Piperlime.

I first saw the bag a couple years ago (with the same friend!) in San Francisco while walking through Barneys. It was gray, which I loved, but I really liked the hardware and bird design. Not able to afford it at the time, I walked away but never forgot. Over the years I've had it bookmarked, sorting through the different colors each season, waiting for the day it would be more attainable. Well, my friends, that day has come. With the discount and a couple of rewards certificates, I decided to take the leap and buy one of the purses I've always wanted.

Feels good.

More Items For Sale

I'm about to post this on EA.  All items come from a non-smoking, pet-free home. Prices include shipping via USPS with Delivery Confirmation.

Anthropologie Solar Star Blouse
Size 12
NWOT $50 shipped

One of the many things I bought and never wore. I got it online so there are no tags attached. It pains me to sell this pretty top with such great detail, but it should go to somebody that will really use it.

Anthropologie Corridor Maxi Skirt
Medium
Green Motif (looks gray to me)
NWOT $60 shipped

I bought this skirt online earlier this month hoping that a medium would work. The length is perfectly long enough for a petite girl (something for tall girls to keep in mind). Unfortunately, it's too snug on my body. Instead of shipping it back with the Changing Stripes Dress (which also didn't work for me), I held onto it with a foolish hope. I've now come to my senses. I used PayPal to pay for the skirt, so rather than return it through the mail and wait weeks for a credit, I thought I'd see if anybody else was interested first.

Anthropologie All Black Hallowed Halls Oxfords
Size 7
Black/White Tweed w/ Soft Bow
NIB $95 shipped

I'm sad to be selling these shoes since they're so cute, but I never wore them. I attached non-slip grip pads from Payless since they look slippery. Average reviews say the shoe runs about a half size small. Maybe that's why I never wore them, they did feel a little tight (but then again, I have wide feet).

DV Dolce Vita Archer [in mint stella]
Size 7.5
NIB $45 shipped

I neglected to return these shoes to Piperlime within 30 days. Personally, the color seems more turquoise than "mint."

If interested, please email me at debbie (dot) possessions (at) gmail (dot) com. Thank you!

First Purchase: intiMINT

BeachMint, the parent company of all the Mint shops, had an open house the other week allowing you to try any of the divisions with no obligation. If you're not familiar with the Mints, there are currently 6 different shops represented by certain celebrities: StyleMint, JewelMint, BeautyMint, ShoeMint, HomeMint, and intiMINT. All are monthly subscription based - your credit card is charged 1 credit at the beginning of the month (amount varies depending on the Mint) but you have the option to skip a month within the first few days, which I always do.

I'm only subscribed to ShoeMint, curated by one of my favorite style muses, Rachel Bilson.  So far I've bought 3 5 pairs of shoes... a post for another day. With the open house I quickly browsed the other shops and was intrigued by intiMINT, curated by Brooke Burke-Charvet. In the end, I bought three pieces.


When I received the package, it arrived in a cute box. Included was a free undergarment bag for the washer. I own similar bags from The Container Store, they definitely come in handy when protecting your garments from snags and such.

intiMINT Bella Notte Lace Trim Panty [in black]
I really like the contrast on this one.  The blue color first caught my eye, but black and white was more appealing. If I buy more, I'll pick up the blue colorway.

intiMINT Bella Boyshort [in black]
I really like boyshort undies. Lace boyshorts? Why not.

intiMINT Bella Bandeau [in black]

Seriously, I don't know what I was thinking buying a bandeau.  I'm incredibly top-heavy and a bandeau has no supportive properties for me.   Despite this, I still purchased one and don't regret it one bit.  It's one of those items I'll never wear out of the house.  Scratch that, I might wear it with the J. Crew Kimono Sleeve Maxidress I bought earlier this month (I loved it so much I couldn't return it).

I want the following pieces:

intiMINT Wrap Me Up Robe
intiMINT Fly Front Pant [in black]
intiMINT Malibu Cardi [in heather grey]
Overall, I like their offerings.  Things I would love to see from intiMINT in the future: cute bras with underwires!
