Currently Considering

If you've fallen ill in summer then I don't have to tell you how uncomfortable it is.  The sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the ice cream truck is singing its tune in the wind...and you're laid out flat in bed.  Possibly whimpering. Yesterday I woke up feeling super dizzy and just plain under the weather.  Instead of listening to my body I thought I'd give vacuuming a try--not the best idea when you can't stand up straight. Moments later I was back in bed moderately worse for the wear.

Here's the thing about being sick:  there's still technology.  It whispers to you from every corner:  turn on the tv, you want a smoothie (blender in the kitchen), maybe someone sent you a text message, and the worst:  hey why don't you just shop online for, oh, 3 hours.  As a result of doing just that I have found myself in a bit of a pinch--how to make room and have the budget for all of the following?

And yes, I realize I have been bit by the cheetah/leopard bug.  I think it's what landed me in the horizontal in the first place.  Conspiracy theory!

CC #2



1. Isabel Marant - Sleeveless Leopard Blouse (less expensive version at Forever 21) Thanks for the heads up!
2. Current/Elliott - Leopard Skinny Stiletto Jeans (also here in case your size is gone)
3. Crochet Dress - This picture does not do it justice and you can get 30% off here (also in black)
4. 3.1 Phillip Lim - Quilted Leather Shorts (less expensive + on sale version here!)
5. Sam Edelman - Alvin Smoking Loafer (also $10 cheaper here
6. Rebecca Minkoff - Clutch (also here in case it sells out because I think it could -- beautiful)
7. Dolce Vita Jamison Booties (and you can get 30% off those too, which I may or may not have done)

Rest up, make a couple of online orders, and... that's all I've got. I took shopping online as the first sign that I was on my way to recovery a couple of weeks ago. Yeah, the doctor didn't SAY that meant I was getting better but, um, that's how I took it.

Mandy at Life in the Fashion Lane said...

awww...feel better friend. Even though you were down you definitely weren't out! Those picks are FAB. I have always had the leopard print bug. It won't go away ;)

Dancing Branflake said...

Sick shopping! Oh no! It makes all purchases completely seemingly justified.

I hope you feel better soon.

Megan said...

i need #1, #4, #5, and #7. I need some cute low boots this season... NEED. key word. so i dont care how poor i am, i must make it happen.

RosaLovesDC said...

Feel better lady! I am also going through a bit of an animal print fever right now.

LyddieGal said...

I was just thinking I needed a leopard blouse... Wait, did I already buy one of those? And leopard shoes and a new clutch...

Ahhh online shopping, we don't stand a chance!

Turn off the computer and get some rest!

Danielle (elleinadspir) said...

So sorry you are sick friend. Kind of loving the flats. Kind of wanting them.

Courtney Erin said...

I hope you feel better soon - being sick sucks! And you just know I drooling over all that stuff...hello leopard!

Rest up & feel better darlin', but in the meantime go buy 5, 6 & 7... oh wait, it seems you've already taken care of number 7..! ;) They are fantastic loafers, good purchase!! And that clutch is a must have... lovvvving it!

STYLE'N said...

I love the clutch...I saw a couple of hers in Saks and I decided I must have one! And I love lace for fall too.

jen said...

I have to confess...I already own #2...as soon as I saw them, I HAD to have them. I have a animal print obsession so these were a necessity. I can tell you they are as great in real life as in the pictures. Can't wait until it is cool enough here to wear them. Hope you feel better soon!

Lisa Griffin said...

Wow those leather shorts are speaking to me and it is so out of character for me!

Ms. Givens said...

I want #2 and #5.
Yesterday was extremely boring at work and I was bad. I ordered a wallet, a dress and oxfords from Forever21 and then a skirt, a belt and a python printed top from ASOS.
Shame on me.
Feel better!

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

Oh that is exactly what happens to me when I'm sick! It's not a good thing. Because I don't have the willpower to say no. I'm in a weakened state and all I want is instant gratification. Anything to make me feel better. Looove all of these picks. Especially the Isabel Marant blouse. Gorgeous!

Feel better soon, sweetie! xoxo

Savvy Gal said...

I like me a pair of leather shorts too.

Alexa said...

I know...when I'm sick I always end up perusing around more than usual. Ha.

Oh dear, this is exactly what I do when I am sick! But you did find some great shoes...I hope you feel better soon :)

justagirlLaura said...

Aaaaahhh. These are all AMAZING! Hope you feel better soon, Carrie!

birdie to be said...

I love #3... lace is soooo in right now!

The Suburb Experiment said...

I hate being sick when it's nice outside. I love your picks - I'm trying to resist those Sam Edelmans. I ended up finding the perfect boot from Enzo Angiolini which were more than $100 less than the FP ones!

Amy said...

I hope you feel better soon! Being sick during the summer time, with all of its humidity and mugginess never feels good :(

hip hip gin gin said...

Oh honey, why vacuuming? Vacuuming makes me sick on the best day =) I hope you feel better very soon. Summertime sickness is just unfair.

And I'm not usually an animal print person, but I've seen leopard flats a few times now and I'm starting to really crave a pair!

Miss Caitlin S. said...

ugh sorry you feel like crap, that is never fun at all. And you're right the internet does ease the pain a bit, I love your selections, is it bad that I kinda want to wear them all together.... haha.

la petite coquine said...

You may be delirious, but girl, you can still shop online better than most mortals. That clutch is like buttery bag heaven.


Here's hoping a shot of tequila kills whatever's in your system.

Claire Kiefer said...

GET THE CROCHET DRESS!!! It is so beautiful and would look fantastic on you! Plus it's not quite bank-breaking. Isn't your birthday very very soon? Perfect excuse! (I bought an Anthropologie dress for $168 . . . still debating on whether I deserve to keep it or not!)

Feel better Carrie! I hate that you're sick. I'd suggest a hot toddy, but I think you said you have the flu, in which case it might make you BARF. Ugh. Sending health vibes to SoCal!

Amish Stories said...

I was passing through different blogs and thought id just say hello. Richard from the Amish community of Lebanon,Pa.

Indiana Munn said...

I love the leopard skinny jeans. I saw them a few weeks ago and wished they shipped to NZ so I could buy a pair. I hope you feel better soon!

Johanna said...

I love that scalloped lacy dress. So cute! The leopard bug has bitten me hard core. When is it too much?

FRANKIE HEARTS FASHION said...

Hope today is a little better then yesterday! And yes, we cannot escape the technology....I swear the shopping websites talk to me! Love your picks...especially the leather shorts! xo

Taj Acosta said...

You poor thing! I was sick last month and wanted to shoot myself. Great shopping here, there's really no escaping the animal print bug! Love the RM bag, I've got this in same color with a gold chain and it's like butta. xo -Taj

OneCraftyFox said...

Raawr!! ;) Hope all is great with you, sweet cheeks!

Being sick in the summer is the worst isn't it. Take care, shopping online is like medicine..you really can't overdo it ;)

Poppies and Sunshine said...

Oh yes, the dangers of technology when you have the time to browse your favorite shops online for hours. I wish technology could somehow go on hold when I am under the weather. I always think of the emails that are stacking up and the work that I could be doing, but just can't bring myself to do.

The Blonde @ Stylish3 said...

LOVE those current/elliott jeans. I saw them on Cheetah is The New Black recently and absolutely fell in love.

Gina said...

The crochet dress is lovely lovely lovely

FASHION ICE said...
