Camo and Proenza

 Jacket: H&M (old), Sweatshirt: Proezna Schouler x Neiman Marcus for Target, Camo Pants: Zara, Shoes: Old Navy, Accessories:  H&M snood, Foley & Corinna bag, Forever 21 ring, Michael Kors watch

I'm not commonly one to buy full-priced items often. Not because I don't want to but, like many of you I'm a gal living on a budget (and lusts after designer, and non-designer, goods). It's a self-imposed, and rather selfish, problem isn't it? Nevertheless, if I can wait the time out (and feel like items won't sell out first) then I love to snag the deals.

These camo pants have been seen so much (and maybe even too much) but, I still really adore them. So for a discounted price, I got them. The colors of the camo print are not overwhelming compared to others so I don't feel like I'm wearing a costume. And while the Neiman Marcus designer collaboration with Target seemed a bit hit/miss with me (e.g. the Altuzarra shaker and Altuzarra glasses were not made particularly well but the Altuzarra tray is amazing!), I liked this Proenza Schouler sweatshirt for its quirky design and high/low hem. Plus, with all the collaboration pieces now on sale, the price is right.


How do you feel about purchasing full-priced items vs. waiting for items to go on sale?

  1. I also normally wait for things to go on sale - but I did buy those camo pants full price, which I actually don't regret because I wore them a lot up to now and really love them! haha Love this look! :)

  5. I can never pull off camo like you do. I guess the pattern overwhelms my petite frame :(
    I always wait for a sale. Everything, I mean everything, always goes on sale. And for luxury designer goods, I always choose consignment stores as I can get a perfect designer item for 1/2 the cost.

  8. I love this whole look! I felt the same as you. I totally thought the NM/Target collab was a hit or miss. I bought the proenza sweatshirt too which I liked. But as for the other stuff like the marc jacobs pouch.. I felt it was poorly made for the price even on sale! :(

    I love how you paired with the camo pants and love those Old Navy booties. ;) I have the same pair! They're so comfy!

    Love your blog girl. I'm your newest follower. :) Hope you get a chance to check mine out and maybe follow back too?

  18. I think with some items it depends. If I think the item is going to sell out quickly, then I'll snatch it up full price. But...I also don't take tags off anything until I wear it, so if I notice that a few weeks later, that item has gone on sale, then I'll buy the sale one and return the full price one. That's how I got all of my Jason Wu for Target and Target/Neiman Marcus items on sale. I just waited. :)

    I love you styled the sweatshirt! I'll have to remember that it looks so good with camo. Such a fun mix of prints! <3

  23. Love this look! I definitely wait until things go on sale unless it is a pieces I've been looking for for awhile. I don't want to risk it selling out in my size! Love the sweatshirt...I might have to get it now that it's on sale!

  28. Cute outfit, love how you make those pants look feminine and cute with the rest if the outfit.

    I for one used to buy stuff at full price but i guess patience does come with self-control, patience, practice and limited budget. I love snagging deals as of late.

    Thanks so much for stopping by :)

  34. Those boots! So awesome. And I love the camo and sweatshirt - such fun different pieces. Sometimes I wait for things to go on sale like that, but if I really, really love it, I fetch it up full price. It happens every now and then, but usually I am patient.

  44. hey nancy! GREAT pants doll. they have not seen the end yet girl. they still look great. i wait for sales 90% of the time. i really try and hold out. if an item is limited, then i'll buy it right away (but that's usually when something is in a smaller/boutique shop and they don't carry many sizes). larger stores....mass quantities...wait for a sale or even clearance! hahaha
