Between April showers and not-so-spring-like temperatures, forum members have been spending quite a bit of time indulging in retail therapy. We’ve either been picking up the not-so-heavy outerwear that will get us through the rest of these chilly days and nights or investing in the separates we plan to wear all season. Here are some of the highlights.

Les Sucettes picked up the Ebba cotton-blend blanket coat by Etoile Isabel Marant – which softgrey called “THE IM piece of the season.”
“I buy stuff for the long haul,” Les Sucettes shared. “I will be wearing this jacket when everyone forgot it even existed and my mother is begging me to stop using it because she's sick of the sight of it,” she laughed.
I’m less sure about my own recent purchase. I impulsively bought a pair of black Balenciaga flats – I couldn’t resist the super-soft leather – and have been internally debating whether to keep them ever since.
Biboquinhas has a thing for fast fashion. She hit up Zara for a striped dress “to wear at the beach this year,” and tried Stradivarius for a printed pair of pants. “I’m anxious to wear them in sunny weather!” she posted.

Her other new addition? A light blue button-up with a rounded collar from Inwear.

Lucy92 wins the prize for most glam purchase with this pre-loved Bibhu Mohapatra gown. “It’s from a few seasons ago and might need tailoring and repairs. The price was a steal,” she confessed. “I’m hoping all the pleats can hide the potential snags.”
Jinadaze went a simpler, less formal route with her new textured A-line skater dress from ASOS.
