Welcome to January’s edition of The Bad Buy Book! This month’s theme is: Wintercoats.
The Bad Buy Book is a series hosted by Shelbee of Shelbee on the Edge and Nancy of Nancy’s Fashion Style. We wanted to establish together something fun and new. We both talked about our,,Sitting Shoes,, and so we came up with the idea for The Bad Buy Book!
We all do our best to look great in our outfits, choose the right accessories, the right makeup, the perfect shoes, and wait for the best light to shoot the most flattering outfit photos. And now we are asking you to show us the items you don’t feel your very best in. You know, those ,,Sitting Shoes,, that dress that is actually not quite your color, the skirt that is a size too small but the saleswoman said it looked amazing. We all own those items! And while they may look fabulous, they don’t always feel fabulous! So we want you to show us your bad buys and tell us the story about them! What made you purchase the item? And why do you dislike it now? And why not share them with us? We buy these things for a reason then hide them in the back of the closet. Now it’s their turn to share the limelight.
Let’s take a look at our Bad Buy Wintercoats!
First is my lovely co-host Shelbee of Shelbee On the Edge
I wore my bad buy coat for my Black Friday shopping post because I do occasionally wear it even though it is a bit snug! It is a brown leather jacket from Wilson’s Leather which is such great quality leather. I couldn’t resist it when I saw it in the thrift store for $20. I do love the cut and the chocolate brown color, but it really is just a bit snug in the shoulders. It seems a lot of my bad buys come from thrift shops…because I apparently cannot resist the great price!
Nancysfashionstyle: I hope you have learned a thing or two from these series my dear friend! Lol!
And here is Jodie of Jodie’s Touch of StyleWell, I’m going to send over another of my stepmom, Nancy’s photos for this category!
I ordered this coat from VIPme for her, but it’s just a little too small for her to wear over other items. It’s hard to tell in this photo because she has the scarf on, but when it’s closed, it gaps open a little. I thought it was so pretty with the embroidery down the front and back!
That’s the disadvantage of ordering online, especially from the China sites, I guess. The good news is she recently handed it down to me, so it’s in my closet now!!!! Score!!!
Nancysfashionstyle: hm, a lot of items that you buy for Nancy end up in your closet! I would wonder if I was her! Lol!
Thanks for doing this!!
This is a bad buy because I hate these kind of jackets. But I needed a warm short jacket for when I go to the gym( yes I know, I look a-stylish at the gym!)on my bike. But I feel awfull when I wear this…….but it is warm…..
This was our last The Bad Buy Book! But don’t worry, we will be back with a new series! Next month we will tell you all about it and afther that you all can join the party! A special thanks to Jodie who has always been such a great support!
See you next month with the introduction of……….??????
