My god pouts on the cover of the magazine.


Another casual weekend outfit. I was running around, getting some random items I needed and I decided to stop in to Filene’s Basement. Dude. They had a huge selection of designer pieces that I couldn’t resist rifling through. I was sort of amazed by the variety of designers and cool stuff they had. I also completely embarrassed myself by emitting a slightly erm… passionate moan when I found a pair of Haider Ackermann metallic printed leggings. Everyone in the vicinity quickly moved away from me. Whoops. Of course I couldn’t afford anything, even at Filene’s Basement prices. But it was great to try on some things and admire the beautiful fabrics.
blazer- J.Crew
hoodie- Gap
tshirt- J.Crew
jeans- Gap
shoes- Steve Madden
Really didn’t plan for my whole outfit to consist of Gap and J.Crew!

    I love how you layered the blazer over the bright yellow hoodie!

    I feel the same way about Filene’s, my favorite place to shop, period.
    Love hoodies and blazers paired together.

    I love your lipstick – kudos on being able to pull off such a bold color. Filene’s Basement is one of my favorite stores, I grew up shopping there!

    xoxo, Ashley

    Hi Najeema – I got a kick out of your blog post, especially your reaction to the leggings. I totally get it. Sounds like you know your labels, girl. Thanks for being a fan of Filene’s Basement. I, too, see great stuff in our stores that just are not in the budget—but it’s fun just to see and touch some of these designer goods. I don’t know when you were in the store, but our Vault merch is currently 40% off, and will go lower soon. Off course, there’s less of a selection the longer you wait, but those leggings might have your name on them and be waiting for you when the price is right. Pat
