It is officially Fall! This makes me laugh a bit, because, surprise surprise, it still feels pretty much like summer in LA. This is the point in the year where I start to get VERY bored with my summer wardrobe and stare longingly at all the gorgeous fall clothes I’ve bought, wondering when I will ever get to wear them. This outfit is a pretty great answer to my dilemma. The monochromatic camel color palette, plus the fact that the fabrics are a little heavier all give this look a decidedly more “fall” vibe. The major advantage of this not quite fall outfit is the fact that it consists of a sleeveless turtleneck and this vest, so I can kind of get in on the fun fall trends without dying of heat stroke.
All that aside, I want to talk for a minute about this vest and culottes that I am wearing. I recently purchased these two gorgeous pieces from ifchic.com, a website that sells awesome pieces from brands like Alexander Wang, Current/Elliott, and Preen, among others. They have this great event on the 24th of every month where they reward their customers by letting them spend their “if chic coins.” Let me break down this process for you:
- Go on ifchic.com, and create an account.
- Shop around their site for a while, look at all the pretty things. You will eventually notice a little gold coin pop up somewhere on the page. Click that. Guess what? You just got $2 worth of spending money on ifchic.com. (Each coin gets you $2) If you continue to click around their website, eventually you will see two more of these coins pop up. If you click on all three, you will have collected $6 of coins, which is the maximum you can collect in a day. Here’s a screen shot of what the coins will look like:
- Continue to repeat step #2 every day for the rest of the month. Seriously, it takes a couple of minutes of shopping on this website to collect your $6 for the day. If you continue to do this every day for a whole month, you can collect up to $180 worth of coins to spend.
- Mark your calendar for the 24th of the month, because every month on the 24th, you are allowed to spend your coins. One coin spends like one dollar. Don’t miss that date though, because your coins will expire after the 24th.
Seriously, it’s that easy. While much of the merchandise on this site is upwards of $150, if you do get all 180 coins in a month, that is $180 dollars to put towards a really great piece. I am pretty obsessed with the 2 C/emo Collective pieces I purchased with my coins, they are gorgeous. I am definitely looking forward to my next #ifchic24 shopping experience, all their pieces are totally swoonworthy. Check out this website for yourself, they definitely have something for everyone.
Thanks for reading, have a great afternoon!
