Collective Haul: Topshop, Nasty Gal, + More

Hello, all! Thought I'd ease back into things with a little update and a haul. Washington has definitely settled back into it's autumn/winter/spring weather (aka rain, rain, and more rain), so now I have no excuse for not blogging in my spare time. I'm pretty much settled into the new condo, except my room still needs a few finishing touches, but then it will be ready for a room tour vid.

Before beginning this post I searched  high and low for my camera, but I can't find it so I had to use my trusty iPhone for the pictures. My apologies if they're not up to par!

The Stuff:
L to R: Vince Camuto "Vintage Leather Booties", $150 / The Fault In Our Stars by John Green, $20 / Necklace from Nasty Gal (From a sale) / Benefit "BrowZings" in Light, $30 / Ring from Nasty Gal (From a sale) / Circus by Sam Edelman "Ali Flat", $70

Frenchi, purchased at Nordstrom /  Abound, purchased at Nordstrom Rack / Gap "The Essential V Neck", $20

Topshop "Speckle Roll Sleeve Mini Dress" (From a sale)

Topshop "Fluro Pink Skater Skirt" (From a sale)

Moth "Leo Pullover" purchased from Anthropologie, $98

The Review:
VC Booties- I love love love these booties! They hit me right at the angle and give me just a little height, but they're comfortable enough to wear all day.
The Fault In Our Stars- I think this deserves it's own post, so that'll be coming up soon. All I can say is that it was the most moving book I've read thus far.
Nasty Gal Necklace & Ring- Two pieces that add a little bit of edge to an outfit.
BrowZings- I'm not an expert when it comes to brows, but I am quite happy with this wax and powder duo. It also comes with a small angled brush, blender brush, and tweezers. Even though I have dark hair and medium toned skin, the Benefit specialist said that she usually only works with the Light on people because the darker shades are too red for most people. And I agree with her, because even the wax in the Light palette is a little too red if it's not mixed with the powder properly.
Circus by Sam Edelman Flats- I just bought these babies last weekend and I've worn them at least four times since then. They're really easy to style and have stud-like tips that add a little somethin'-somethin'.
Tees- I have at least two tees in each color shown. My favorite style is the v-neck, especially when it is a relaxed fit. They go with everything!
Topshop Dress- A perfect comfortable and casual dress that is super easy to style. The main color is a bright violet/blue, and then it's speckled with green, white, and purple. I usually wear a 4 in the stuff from Topshop, but I ordered a size down because it looked quite boxy in the picture. I'm glad I did too, or else it would have been wayyy too big. 
Topshop Skirt- If I could use a cliché to describe this skirt it would be "Go big or go home" because this thing is BRIGHT. It is literally like a fluorescent light, but I can't help but love it. It looks great with a white crop top and flat-forms.
*I know the dress and skirt seem a tad springtime-y, however they make great layering pieces and I'm one of those people who aren't afraid to bear their skin during the winter chill.
Leo Pullover- This is definitely my favorite sweater ever. It's so light and soft, but it keeps me toasty and cozy. Plus, a week after I bought it I found out Macklemore's girlfriend, Tricia Davis, has it too so that's kinda cool.
