Besides eating chocolate and saffron rolls, I've also finally laid my hands on something I've been looking for for years, my holy grail, Isabel Marant's Bator coat. It wasn't available anywhere around here in 2009, so I gave up and got the longer Etoile version of the Bator, the Ben coat, in 2010, which was such a disappointment! There was heavy pilling, so I sold it. I thought I could end this obsession with the linen spring/summer version of the coat, the Chuck. I got it, wore it to death but it didn't in any way make me stop thinking about the Bator. So, I finally found it, used of course, but still everything I was hoping for.
Isabel Marant coat and boots, Rag & Bone cords, Rodebjer shirt.
I also got some good basics on sale, a great black very simple Rodebjer shirt and a cardigan, a black Isabel Marant leather belt, an Etoile burgundy tencel/cashmere/silk tee and an Etoile knit. I've been resisting this knit for a couple of months, but at 40% off I finally gave in.
Same boots and pants, Rodebjer shirt and belt.
Same boots and pants, Isabel Marant Etoile knit, Hope belt.

This is actually a lot more than I was planning for, and seeing it like this is a bit nauseating. The things I like usually never make it to the sales, but I guess I was just lucky this year. I try really hard not to go crazy and buy stuff that I don't really love/need just because it's 50% off, but I know that these will get lots of use. Did you do a better job resisting the sales?
