2015 Favorites | Purchases & Gifts

2015 was a really great year for some of my favorite purchases I've made - whether I bought it as a gift, for myself or was gifted it - these were my favorites of the year! Broken out into easier to go through categories! 

2015 Shoes//

I think this was the first year that I bought myself shoes - usually my mom knows what I like so she picks them up for me - it helps we're the same size, but I couldn't say no to these pretties! 

Probably my favorite of all the shoes were these Vince Camuto wedges I scored from Amazon - I couldn't beat the price and two day shipping :) My pink loafers quickly sold out, but they were restocked in more neutral tones

2015 Purses//

I purchased a few purses this year - if you ask Gary the last thing I need is more purses, but they are my weakness! I purchased a few from TJ Maxx, one of which I've been wearing non-stop and is a great dupe for this Longchamp bag

I adore my blush Rebecca Minkoff Crossbody that I bought as a "Happy Birthday to Me" gift & right before my Charleston trip this summer I picked up Elle Crossbody from GiGi NY - which is on sale again right now! 

2015 Accessories//

I'm sure I'm not alone here when I say accessories is always where I end up buying the most things during the year - they are usually smaller items that are too cute to pass up! 

Hard to pick a favorite from these, but Kate Spade wins because the sunglasses I could not stop wearing this year - and still do & the hot pink wallet is my favorite, it fits absolutely everything! 

Books//

I read a lot this year - I had months of non-stop reading & these are some of my favorite books from the year!



Everything Else//

Just a hodge podge of makeup, notebooks & stationary things! 


Favorite Shows//

Even though this wasn't necessarily items purchased - these are the shows we couldn't get enough of in 2015!! The Affair was a new one in the last few weeks - but oh my gosh did we get into it!! Loved the show! Everything on Netflix was a hit to me - I'd watch them all over again! 
Bloodline (Netflix); Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (Netflix); Quantico (ABC); House of Cards (Netflix); The Affair (Showtime); The Fall (Netflix) 
Clearly Netflix wins for being the best with shows! I could have probably listed about 10 others, but I don't want to seem like all we do is watch TV haha! 

What were some of your favorite buys of 2015?

  4. Oooh I love those wedges! I bought myself my first pair of heeled boots the other day and I can't wait to get the opportunity to wear them. A Kate Spade bag is definitely on my wish list for the next year!

  7. Ahhh so many great things! I almost bought that GiGi crossbody earlier this week when I saw it was on sale but I held back since I just bought a GiGi clutch like 2 weeks ago. And I got a pair of RayBan Jackie Ohh's for Christmas but I think I'm going to trade them in for your KS glasses! I love how cute they are on you! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  8. I got my daughter a swell bottle for Christmas, she was thrilled since they are very popular with the teens. Netflix for the win, if only they didn't make us wait so long!Reading more is a goal this year though, in between Netflix series lol.

  19. I HAVE to read Big Law! The Affair is so good! I have 2 episodes on my DVR I need to catch up on!

  20. Honestly, one of my favorite buys was probably the be-band I bought during my early months of pregnancy. It's just a little piece of spandex that lets me wear my regular pants without having to button or zip! What is the fall about? Have you watched Jessica Jones yet? Also on Netflix, and I highly recommend it!

  21. You had a lot of hits this year with things that you purchased! I love that Rebecca Minkoff bag and I totally agree with you about the Kate Spade sunglasses! I heard great things about The Luckiest Girl Alive, and I'm glad that we both loved The Girl on the Train! Netflix is definitely the best, and they have some great shows! I've never heard of The Fall, but if Jaime Dornan is a main character, I'm definitely going to watch it!

  22. I love the books! I am going to add that to my reading list for 2016! My favorite buy this year was a TV for my new apartment I moved into :)

  44. I love this recap, Biana! I've never seen one done like this in the form of best purchases of the year, I love it! Those pink loafers are indeed beautiful, I can see why they sold out so quickly, which I'm bummed about because I would've loved to have gotten my hands on them! Thanks for sharing and I know that 2016 will be an amazing year, filled with amazing opportunities :)

  50. I am peeping your book list. I only read two of those so I'm pinning the rest for future reads.
    Yup, I'm an accessories fanatic too. I love hats and brooches for church, I love watches, I love purses… ooh, purses are my all time favorite accessory. I just can't get enough!

  51. Love all your purchases girl!! Handbags are always a favorite of mine to purchase and my Kate Spade bag was my favorite. My sister spoiled me for my birthday and Christmas with Kate Spade goodies so that always wins for best purchases/gifts of 2015. Of course my engagement ring was my favorite purchase (by my fiance) this year ;)!!

  56. I'm loving the accessories panel! Especially that Kate Spade wallet. I have a weakness for wallets. I love having a variety depending on my mood, doesn't make it easy for when I have to switch out everything to the wallet.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I mean, I'll just take one of each! My personal picks are the S'well bottle, the Rifle notebooks, and every one of your shoe picks! Also, Girl on the Train was my favorite book, too! Happy New Year, girlfriend! xo, Champagne&Suburbs

  62. Those shoes, I mean I love them all! I love purses too, but I can't ever get lucky and find good ones at TJ Maxx or Marshalls. I LOVE Netflix as well. I watched Parenthood and loved it, I wish they would hurry and release the last season already. Definitely recommend it. xo

    ReplyDelete
  63. I ended up getting the electronic case, so perfect for corralling cords. All those shows aside from House of Cards made my list too.
