Bloggers to Blame

I saw this idea over on Kate's page and couldn't help myself but to borrow her idea!

You all know how influential other bloggers can be...and usually people have some great ideas/products/items to show you...and then you know you just HAVE to have it!

I (happily) blame these bloggers for the following purchases:

{1} Jess gets the blame for these finds:
{via}                                                             {via}
The nude flats were only $16.99, and the cute wedges I got last year from Nordstroms during a sale (can't remember what I paid). 

{2} Pinterest Told Me To gets the blame for this beautiful Loft sweater
It is seriously SO SOFT!! As soon as she posted about this, I loved the fun pattern and knew I just had to have it. It took me until she mentioned it a second time (and it being restocked) before I finally bit the bullet, but I did. I love it, and have gotten a bunch of compliments on it each time I wear it. 

{3} Every blogger who participated in the Nordstrom sale gets the blame for these earrings:
 I will give Jess some extra credit here (again) because I had trouble deciding between the multi-colored and the pink ones. I'm SO glad I went with the multi-colored ones. They seriously go with everything and I get compliments all the time when I wear these!

{4} Amanda gets the blame for this cardigan/sweater from Target
It is seriously one of the softest sweater cardigans ever! Her snap about this find (and the discount through the Cartwheel app) had me on a Target run within 24 hours because I knew I had to have it. Both of my sister-in-laws asked me where I got it (and were shocked when I said Target), and one of my coworkers asked me if it was cashmere! I laughed and told her "yeah, it's Target cashmere".

Amanda also gets the blame for the purchase of my Rebecca Minkoff  crossbody Avery bag in "aubergine" (I love saying that word) this weekend. It's already sold out, which I'm not surprised about because it was almost 50% off by the time you applied all of the discounts/sales.

{5} Natalie gets the blame for this striped tunic from Old Navy
 ....because I had been searching for a dress or tunic with thin black and white stripes since before it officially became Fall. Lo and behold, she posted this great, inexpensive find (it was $12!!) and I snapped it up faster than you could say "credit card". Not only is it super comfy, but it's the perfect Fall piece!

{7} Paige gets the blame for my interest in, and eventual purchase of, my starter essential oils kit and diffuser.
I've been loving my diffuser since I got it, and used it throughout my cold the last two weeks of October!

{7} Pamela gets the blame for this Essie nail polish purchase
 Even though it's not the exact same color that she posted about, it is pretty darn similar and I found it when I was searching for the color she mentioned. Another great Fall nail color!

Thanks to each and every one of you for the inspiration. I thank you...my credit card does not! :)
What do you blame on other bloggers?

  13. YES!!!! So glad I made this list twice! That Target sweater is seriously still my go to favorite. I have it for the hockey game tonight. I got it in the green as well :-) See that RM purse was meant to be since it's already sold out you know it was an awesome deal. Can't wait till you get it. I laughed about that cashmere comment, it's like don't worry about it, it's from Tarjay ;-)

  15. While reading this post, I actually had to navigate away for a moment to look up that Old Navy tunic because it is so cute, but it was sold out in my size! I also love that Rebecca Minkoff bag...I have been looking for a crossbody bag to replace the old one I have now but I just can't seem to find the right size for me! I will have to check that one out!

  30. I swear I trust bloggers on products more than reviews sometimes. I got that same Target cardigan a few hours after she snapped it...soooo soft!!

    ReplyDelete
  31. The nail color is gorgeous and the crossbody purse! Isn't funny how our shopping is influenced by blogs we read. I'm so happy I won those KS sparkly earrings in a blog giveaway and didn't have to buy them. lol

    ReplyDelete
  32. I adore every pair of Kate Spade earrings and want one of each. I've been wearing some cute ivory bows all the time and should probably ask Santa for these confetti ones. I'd also like one of everything you listed - striped tunic, dark nails, nude flats and those booties. Thanks for linking up with us this week :)

  33. So many great things!!! I've been on the hunt for boots and I'm about to start stalking all the blogger friends for good suggestions ;) Also that Target 'cashmere' cardi is awesome, lol! I wish there was a Target around here!! x

  34. I swear that we all are a bad influence on each other most of the time, lol. So many great finds and purchases!
