If you follow me on Twitter, you know that last weekend, I scored some wicked deals while outlet shopping. I’m not going to turn this into a haul post, but I HAVE to brag on these finds: $450 Michael Kors leather leggings for $77(!!!), a Michael Kors sweater vest for $17, and the sickest Max Azria (runway) shoes for $94.

And then Mother Nature blessed me with one last cold spell so I could enjoy my end-of-the-season finds…ah. Lucky me. I may not look happy in this photo, but trust me, I’m smiling on the inside.

*WVW = What V Wore
Vest: MICHAEL Michael Kors  •  Shirt: LOFT  •  Leggings: MICHAEL Michael Kors  •  Heels: MAX AZRIA
Necklace: Gucci (gifted)  •  Bag: American Apparel  •  Rings: Unknown  •  Sunnies: Juicy Couture
Manicure: Sally Hansen Salon Effects in Kitty Kitty  •  Lippie: MAC Vegas Volt

And to top it all off, that gleaming, sterling silver Gucci necklace is a gift from Gucci. It’s perfect, isn’t it? The double-Gs? I say they stand for Grit & Glamour. Thank you, Gucci (and you, C!) for the lovely gift. And G&G readers, if you’re not following the glamtastic @Gucci, whatcha waitin’ for?


  1. WOW. When you mentioned on Twitter that your shoes were sick, you.weren’t.kidding(!!!) So digging this ensemble and you can’t beat those steals!! I think you look smashing in white + dig your bag *wink*


  2. Raven took my words! Lol Those shoes are indeed SICK and what a price score!! Sounds like you had a good time at the outlet; now you have me thinking of an overdue visit to the outlet mall . 🙂

    And V, that bold lip is GORGEOUS by the way!

  3. Yowza, Queen V! The shoes, out of this world, as are the deals you scored. I’m really inspired to get my shop on right about now. Which really isn’t all that helpful since it’s midnight. But that’s okay, I’ve no doubt it’ll linger.

    Of course I’m following the big glam G on Twitter and I’m loving your sparkly/fabulous gift. Definitely GG for Grit & Glamour! I’m loving your rings, too. I keep noticing Kristy’s rings lately and now yours. Again, you’re both teaming up to whack me with a big dose of style inspiration! My index finger is a bit bigger than my ring finger so I can’t typically rock the multiple-ring look. I don’t know why I never try any specifically for my index finger while I’m out. Thinking outside the box. I’ll have to get on that.

    Anyway, rockin’ outfit as ever! xo

  4. You are looking stunning, and those pants (and the bargain) were made for you. Equally perfect if not more is that rad GG necklace. Yes, I’d say Gucci and Grit & Glamour make a nice match.

  5. whooooh, there are no two ways about it, woman you have precence! I am loving your look, nearly passed out when I saw the shoes. This is easily one of my fave looks of yours so far Vahni, you look stunning and so comfortable in your self. That is what I love the most, interiour smile and all. That necklace was made for you! I am glad to see you do more outfit posts, secretly I am also rocking leather tights. Hang on, I might see about getting some for my rococco-style legs, to be worn with frocks. Thanks sweetheart!

  6. Okay I am dying here reading this – Michael Kors leather leggings for $77!!! I LOVE Michael Kors – you look amazing in them!! And those shoes are awesome. I need to go outlet shopping with you lady!

  7. Mwah! look at the glint of sunlight on those GGs, brings a little emotional tear to my eye!
    Thank you for the shout out! and if I ever hit NC you’re taking me (outlet) shopping! 🙂

    1. Haaa! Yes, the little sparkle made me ecstatic too, because it was real and not the result of photo editing! Thanks again for the token of GG love. But if we’re going to outlet shop, we must do it in Italy, for sure!

  8. Don’t you love the American Apparel bag? I bought one just before I gave up shopping for Lent (it’s been harsh), and I had it in several outfit posts myself!

    Love the look and fantastic finds, V 🙂


  9. Get OUTTA here with this nonsense. Those bargains? The leather leggings? Those SHOES? The frigging gifted double G???? I just shat myself.

    Thanks for your lovely comment on ye olde blogge – I appreciate it!!!


  10. Wooowee you certainly know how to bag a bargain V! Your legs look amaaazing in those Michael Kors!!! I also love the look of those heels too! Before you said it at the end there I was thinking your necklace totally stands for Grit & Glamour 😛 hehe Such a lovely gift from gucci, you lucky thing! 🙂
    Yay for the beautiful sunshine in your photos, it must be amazing to sit outside in your garden at the moment!

  11. I’ve been anxiously awaiting the debut of these leggings ever since I saw your tweet. They’re even more amazing than I expected! You are ROCKING this look! The vest, legging and KILLER shoes all scream “VVVVVVVVVVVVVV” to me.

  12. I just DIED over Caitlin’s comment FYI. She is so fab.

    AND SO ARE YOU! Look at you. V, this is my favorite so far. Seriously. The shoes?! I haven’t seen shoes like that before. Super chic and trendy. I am getting so excited over here at your bargain finds. Finding a good sale is comparable to something that I probably shouldn’t say in a comment. But it feels ohhhhhh so good.

    You look HOT. The pictures are fabulous.
    The End.


  13. Yes, I saw your tweet about it. The leggings are to die for. Love the heels and the clutch is freakin amazing too! I love your serious poses. You look sexy with confidence!! 🙂 AND I’m pretty sure you were super excited about the steal even if you don’t show it because HELLO $77 for MK leather leggings!! Yeah I’d be super excited too! 🙂 Oh, I can’t even believe $17 for the vest! That’s fantastic!!! I have to come shopping with you next time. 😉


  14. Oh em gee!!! I would be doing the macarena on the inside if I scored those pants. I have leather on the brains too. HAUL POST! HAUL POST!

    PS- Happy coincidence with the GG 😀

  15. Wow woman……I don’t even know where to start!! The vest…ahh….the Gucci gift for sure…and wowsers on the shoes…..those are one of the coolest and different pair of shoes I have seen…..you maybe not be smiling, but I know you, lol…..you are freaking out in side, I would be too:)

  16. I love that Gucci sees the value in working with bloggers. So few luxury brands do. They invited me to an event here in Boston and I was flattered and surprised to say the least. And hells yeah you should be bragging about those outlet finds!

  17. Well don’t you just look fabulous, V! I can’t believe your finds at the outlets – those are some GREAT deals, though nearly steals! I’m such a fan of these American Apparel bags, too.. hmm, I may just have to go get one for myself!


  18. Holy Smokes, look at those shoes! Sounds like an epic shopping trip! Who doesn’t like rocking leather leggings, faux fur vest and some killer shoes?! You are a shopping inspiration!

  19. Between you and Veshoevius, you almost persuade me that I want some leather leggings…and my style is at the opposite end of that particular spectrum! You exude such confidence in your clothing choices – right on, lady.

  20. I adore your clutch purse. The colour is jumping out at me, so rich. And those shoes, ah!
    Everything balances so nicely – colours, shoes, bag and so forth. I was at a Gucci store on Tuesday.
    Very poor service might I add – so I left and went to Mui Mui instead;)

  21. Where can I find some of the magic-shopping-mojo you’ve got going on, please?

    UNbelievable finds! Those leggings are killer, that vest – $17?!? – and those shoes… oh how I love those shoes. Then their is the perfect G&G necklace. If that doesn’t prove GUCCI and grit & glamnour are soulmates nothing will!

    You are rocking the look as always, smile or not. (Besides, I actually quite like the lack of a smile in that shot.)

  22. WHAT?! GAH!!!! GORGEOUS!!!

    I’m in LOVE with this outfit Vahni. Every single piece is absolute perfection. I love the simple shirt with that amazing vest, those amazing statement heels. The large envelope clutch in red… yes please!!

    And I also really love the way you did your hair for this look. It just works in the most perfect way.

    Your style is timeless. And I love that about you!

    1. Thanks, Kristy! You know, the clutch…was a screw up. I ordered GREEN, they sent me RED. And I don’t like red. But this one is deep brick red, and the few pieces of red in my closet happen to be this very color. It matches them perfectly, so I kept it. I have to say I think I’m going to love it with next fall’s colors and pieces.

      Thanks for the super sweet comment!

  23. oooo i’m loving those shoes they are soo fierce. its always satisfying snagging a bargain. And leather (or faux in my case) leggings are always a winner 🙂

  24. I heart every bit of this fabulous outfit. Its friggin amazing. Serious shopping bargains. (so jealous) also serious shoe porn. Are your friends always trying to steal/borrow your clothes?? (I totally would)

  25. oh HOLY GOODNESS “V,” I must have missed it about the shoes, I knew you got a steal with the leggings, but dear you do look a m a z i n g ! The killer heels, & necklace are just incredible… I mean seriously! -Love this look! -xxoo

  26. Love the pop of color in the clutch. Those leggings are dreamy on you! Outlet shopping sounds like a must do in my future. BTW, you are so cool and l love your blog so much!


  27. Those MA shoes-amazing!! And of course GG means Grit & glamour. Gucci. Who? :)SarahD

    PS That scorpion belt in the post below….how fantastic. I want it! I’m often described as prickly adjectives, also. Hmmmmmm…..

  28. Those shoes are absolutely killers, and the vest is amazing. I keep reading your deals on your tweets, and I’m a little jealous. I need some designers in my life other than Old Navy.

  29. I was waiting for you to post about those leggings after seeing it on twitter! I love the shoes! So different, but so cute! I’m loving that Gucci Necklace too….well I love everything you scored!

  30. UGH! I Love and desperately Want that necklace! But it’s so perfect for you, doll, G&G!!! You look amazing and what awesome finds…those shoes are amazing!!!

  31. Im loving the catwalk shoes! they’re immense. Some really great finds… the only place I know of to get discounted designer stuff is TK Maxx (TJ Maxx to you guys). They have a separate section now to highlight their designer pieces. But still most of them aren’t that nice and they’re hanging around in that store for a reason!

  32. you definitely rocked the heels…and the leggings really looked good on you…smokin’ hot V…I love the touch of the color of your purse…when everything is black and grey…a little redness never cease too complete the outfit…


  33. A HUGE THANK YOU to all of you for your totally sweet comments! Wow. You guys outdid yourselves. I’ve read them all, and I’m super flattered. Will be out to visit all of you this week.
