This week I received some recent purchases from Gilt.com Since I am currently broke, I used the store credit I had from returning a few ill-fitting items a couple of months ago. I've been waiting to find the perfect items to use my credit on, and I finally found some. I bought three pairs of Wyeth NY heels and two sparkly Avaleigh tops.  Check it out:

I wore the last pair to a recent job interview and was complimented on them by the manager interviewing me. 

And here is a picture of me with the shoes and the white sequined tank top I got:

Top Ten

My picks from the Pre-Fall 2013 Collections

1. Carolina Herrera
I am absolutely in love with this gown (and with everything by Carolina Herrera, for that matter). Lucy Liu looked absolutely stunning in it at the Golden Globes:

2. Bottega Venetta
I love the Mad Men-esque feel of this dress.

3. Prabal Gurung
I would wear this dress constantly if I owned it.

4. Gucci
I will bet you money we see Anne Hathaway in this beauty very soon.

5. Erdem
Erdem's Pre-Fall collection hits all the right notes. This is just an example of their floral and feminine pieces. I want every single one.

6. J Mendel
This dress looks like it should be worn by an angel: soft, fluttery, white, and lacy.

7. Nina Ricci
Right now, I wish I worked in an office so I had an excuse to wear this suit.

8. Louis Vuitton
Louis Vuitton always produces something to covet, and this pink jacket and skirt combo are no exception.

9. Stella McCartney
Colorblocking is big, and this dress does it perfectly.

10. Jason Wu
Give me a gold-sequined top any day.

Wish Fulfilled

Remember this beauty I posted as my #2 pick on my handbag  Lust List a couple of months ago? 

Well my wonderful boyfriend gave it to me for Christmas! Turns out he read my blog for gift inspiration, and I am certainly glad he did. I think I am going to keep both him and the bag around for a long time. :)

Here it is, my new go-to bag:
