First thing I got was the Dempsey Knee High Boot in ceramic which I have been wanting to get as soon as they came out! I know I just got a pair of Tory Burch boots and I live in LA where there's almost no season for boots ever, BUT I just love them!! =P
I love gray boots. Been wanting a pair forever. These boots are not cheap though. They were originally $695, but they are now on sale for $417 and you get an extra 25% off. So that makes them about $312 which is a lot more reasonable. It's pretty much the top end of what I'd pay for a pair of boots considering how little use I get out of them! I love these though. They are very slimming and even though they look high, they are extremely comfortable! I don't even know how that's possible. I compared them side by side with the Tory Burch Sarava boots I just got and they seem to be exactly the same height. But these feel SO much more comfortable so I don't know what's up with that.
I got them in size 7, which is my usual boot size (regular shoe size +1). I think they are the right size. But if I wanted a snug fit around both the feet and legs, I may go down to 6.5 or something. But I'm happy with the way the size 7 fits.
Half zip on the inner side. But pretty easy to put on and take off.
I also really love the Colorblock Stripe Superwash Sweater I got. I like the pattern, and the fit is exactly what I have come to expect from all my other Vince tops.
I got it in size XS too. The material is mostly merino wool, but it's thin and super soft! I think the price is pretty much as low as it gets too, at $98 + 25% off. Here it is on me, including the boots:
The back is slightly longer than the front:
Next, I got the Graphic Stripe Asymmetric Drape Vest (full size run available here) which I have been wanting since I first saw it at Nordstrom when it came out! I guess it's kind of a similar type of pattern as the top above. It's a wool and cashmere blend and it's actually thicker than I thought it would be. But I'm glad it's sleeveless, since that means I won't overheat in it. It was on sale for $150, which is not bad.
It doesn't come with a strap or any other closure mechanism, so it can only be worn open. I got it in size S, and it's definitely a comfortable fit.
It's like wearing a comfortable blanket lol.
If I want a more fitted look, I can easily add any belt to it and it will have a totally different look:
I am using an Ann Taylor belt here:
The smallest size available when I bought it was size 2. I was worried it would be a bit too big, since Vince runs on the large side, and the smallest size they made in this blazer was 00. But I took a chance anyways, because I'd probably wear it open most of the time and this style seems like it would be ok being a little loose.
I think my assessment was correct. It does fit pretty loosely around the waist. But I think it looks fine. It's super comfortable so I'm hoping it won't give me the neck/headache issue! It ended up being $133 and I think that's a decent price for a blazer.
It doesn't look too bad buttoned up either, but definitely loose. I like it better unbuttoned.
For some reason I thought it was going to be slightly bigger than it is though! The measurements are 8.25 X 6 X 2 inches. I guess I was imagining an inch or 2 larger in my head. But my wallet, phone and keys will all fit in it so that's good enough. I have many large purses anyway!
Here it is on me:
The straps are wrinkly now since they were folded and tucked into the dustbag.
I like the croc skin looking texture, and the color is great! Will go with a lot.
The straps can be removed by "unbuttoning" from each side of the back of the purse:
There is magnetic closure on the flap so it will stay down nicely. But here is the under side of the flap:
The inside is pretty simple - just 1 pocket:
And that's everything I got from Vince! Pretty happy with everything and super relieved about that, since it's all non-returnable! I hope you were able to score some good deals this weekend as well, either from Vince or elsewhere! But if you are on the fence, I highly recommend giving Vince a shot. I own so many Vince pieces now and it never disappoints!
