That’s the sound of me falling off the bandwagon. I broke my shopping ban this morning after Jean and Sydney both tweeted about stackable Ann Taylor sale codes on the store website. It completely lured me in and I was done for. Honestly though, I had also run out of remixing inspiration. I’m sure you wouldn’t want to see that same LOFT skirt remixed five more times and I didn’t even want to remix it into yesterday’s outfit. So let’s hope that this is doing us both a favor. ^_^
So while we’re on the note of full disclosure, I figured it’d be the perfect time to do my 7 Confessions tag (courtesy of 20 York Street and Little Tin Soldier):
- I own a pair of ugly shoes. Meet the Fit Flop Billow. They are super wam and they’re perfect for when I’m too lazy to wear heels on weekends, but you didn’t hear that from me.
- I have a black thumb. I’ve killed two orchids already in my five months of having lived in my new condo. I have the worst luck keeping plants alive and have resorted to paper plants. Thank you Paper Source for coming out with paper magnolias. This is what I have gracing my dinner table now:
- I loved the show “Ugly Betty”. This show was seriously cheesy and my boyfriend would roll his eye every 10 minutes during every episode. But I loved it and though it was just charming in a chic flick kind of way. And I even had a crush on Henry Grubstick, the nerdy accountant. I’m such a nerd.
- I’m addicted to cereal. I eat a bowl of cereal almost everyday for breakfast. And on the days I don’t, I feel like something’s missing. Does anyone else ever feel this way?
- I haven’t washed my car in over 3 months. It actually looked kinda clean the other day when it rained. But now it’s got rain spots all over it and it looks kinda gross. That’s what I get for buying a white car.
- My vehicle registration expired in October. Speaking of cars things being overdue, I actually have been meaning to get my registration taken care of for weeks now. Let’s hope I can escape getting noticed until this weekend.
- I own seven lipsticks but barely use them. After going through some of these pictures, I’ve come to realize I need to wear these lipsticks more. I don’t think the lip gloss alone is cutting it for these pictures. Starting tomorrow, lipstick it is!
My seven confessions are now revealed. And now, I get to share the wealth with seven other lucky bloggers! Here are my picks:

the solar flare says
Kileen, sorry for breaking your shopping ban. That's why I never put myself in a shopping ban because I can't never commit to it. Deals are flying around everyday 🙂 Thanks for tagging me. That's very sweet of you. I'll see what I can come up with. Have a great day!
Sandra Leiva says
So cute, I'm wearing the same pants today! haha <3
Lol, thanks for tagging me? 🙂
I took advantage of the AT sale yesterday too…I should spend less time on twitter. It's BAD because Jean and Sydney tweet as soon as a good deal comes their way. sigh.
I am digging your look today, it's a mixture of a lot of different elements (those military skinny cargos are AWESOME!) but nothing looks out of place. Good job!
I love your skinny cargos! So chic.
i love paper flowers, too! 🙂
Your blazer iS really chic, Kileen. I like the layering effects, I wish I could do better in this area.
Thank you for tagging me. I will reply in my next post. I have so many confessions that I don't know which ones to put out there for the world to see hehe.
Ahaha my white car hasn't been washed in just as long, if not longer!!
Love how those cargos fit you, and looks perfect paired w/those suede pumps!
OHHHH i <3 this look particularity due to the cargo pants!!! they loook fabulous…and i love them paired with those pumps…i <3 round toe pumps they make the feet look sex and small…i cant imagine how small your feet would look though *secretly rubs rubs* ahahahaha …does the F21 cargo pants have stretch to them?
@xppinkx yup, they do have a good bit of stretch and let me sit down/get back up without having to readjust them to pull back down (so awkward!). i actually saw your H&M skinny cargo post and was lusting after those until a yesterday when i saw these in the store. how are your H&M ones?
Really Petite says
Those cargo pants are so cute and fit you so well!
Thanks for the shout out 🙂
Great outfit and the cargos match well.
I think it's alright to break a shopping ban for good reason, but isn't the challenge to remix? I DO want to see what else you can do with that same skirt, pant, top, etc. After all, I do love versatile pieces.
Good luck on the rest of the challenge! =)
@Stylepint hm, good point. I'll try to continue remixing the remainder of my pieces then into the next few posts. thank you for kicking me in the butt and telling me to get back on the bandwagon!
I Don't Wear Jeans says
Thanks for your note on my blog yesterday. Come back again soon. Read yours everyday. http://idontwearjeans.blogspot.com/
The skinny cargo pants look great on you!!! 🙂
The Little Dust Princess says
The the shoes in your outfit! : )
Hey, ugly shoes are always the comfiest. ; ) Think Crocs. LOL (though I've never owned a pair or tried one on, for that matter.) I don't like cereal that much, but my faves are Frosted Flakes and Kellogg's Corn Flakes. What about you? What car do you drive? : )
xx The Little Dust Princess
@The Little Dust Princess i actually like a really weird kind of cereal: Health Valley's Oat Bran Flakes. everyone says it tastes like cardboard, but i love it. 🙂
and i have an Infiniti G35 Sedan from 2004. most reliable car i've ever driven!
Those paper magnolias are so fun and pretty. I may have to track some down for my mother in-law.
No Guilt Fashion
Beautiful outfit for fall! Great post! (And I am also totally addicted to cereal, just FYI.)

my favorite pink says
haha, i love the idea of paper flowers! they're very pretty too! only possible downside? collects dust! hope they work out!
I love these cargo pants on you. Seriously love it! I own a pair of looser fitting ones… ok, really loose but these look so chic.
I own ugly shoes too, my UGGs lol. Sometimes comfort just beats fashion 😉
I love your cargo pants soooo much!!! Now I'm really tempted to break the ban too and go to F21. Fortunately the nearest one is two hours away from me so that's not likely.
Ruth (Book Focus) says
Liking the cargo pants, they look really cool!
Also, I've been finding the shopping ban really hard too. There's a sale on at my favourite shop at the moment but I'm not…allowed…to buy….
So I've showed my boyfriend the items I want and told him how sad I am that *I'm* not allowed to buy them. I've suggested we meet up in the shop after work today so I can try them on (even though, of course, I can't buy them). I'm not *technically* cheating if he chooses to buy me clothes… right?
@Ruth (Book Focus) haha, i like your strategy! let me know if it works! 🙂
Hey Kileen! Just came across your blog and I love your style! I saw those exact same pants in F21 the last time I went shopping, but they def didn't look as good on me as they do on you!
Taj Acosta says
Great post! I love your outfit! Gorgeous! xo
Hot hot pants! I really want some olive skinny cargos…noticed some on the AE site. Hmm… :p
@Michelle ooh, definitely let me know how those work out! i never shop at AE, but maybe i should!
the cargo pants and heels combination is amazing!
Amy Z. says
I love your pants! It's ok about breaking the shopping ban…you tried! And it was during the WORST time of the year too..all the holiday sales!!
I LOVE LOVE Ugly Betty too! I was so sad it got canceled, definitely one of the funniest shows out there.
those pumps!!!!! i can't quite staring at them! they are amazing!
Dwelling and Telling
Every time I see a fashion blogger wearing boyfriend blazer, I keep telling myself that I want one, too. However, every time I try one on, the boyfriend + blazer look on me just doesn't do. For now, I just have to admire afar :).
I enjoyed reading your confessions. I share some of those, such as having had expired registration (as a California resident I didn't have to register my car every year!), and no green thumbs heh.
I agree with you in the point 3 and 7…Interesting list 🙂
Nice outfit also!
I also had a crush on Henry 🙂
Destined For Now says
Wow! You make skinny cargo pants look amazing.
I love how you paired skinny cargoes with a bow and girlier elements! Different and so well adapted to your style. I loved Ugly Betty too!! What a fun survey hehe!
Have a lovely weekend Kileen!
very nice! love the skinny cargos!
Mrs. J says
I really like your skinny cargo pants, the whole outfit is really nice. A great mix of casual and chic!!
I loved the tucked in cardi!
Just Better Together
I can identify with so many of your confessions! I killed my first and only orchid in a week lol (well, because hubby gave it to me on our anniversary and we left for a week-long vacation right after). I already had a teeny crush on Henry too haha, was a little sad that things didn't work out for them. And I have never washed my car (*shhh*), either my Dad does it when he can't take it anymore or I let rain serve as a free carwash 😛
