fashion for the rest of us, and shopping
i'll leave the real fashion blogging to the fashionistas, because lord knows they do it better than i ever could, but i do have to share a pretty phenomenal purchase i made today at ann taylor. first, i had no idea to even go there (again, i know yal knew-- but i am so fashion-challenged) until keila alerted me of these super chic flats, which i've been sorely in need of.
look! bought! today - on sale in store for only $54, in my size! they also make a fantastic royal blue which keila got.
i also got this number on major sale too - it's a little more neon in person. i know - two neon purchases, slow down ke$ha, but i hadn't made any yet, so i think i'm still within quota.
it was a good day - we were at the beach this weekend, and today while brian tinkered, i went old school shopping. like hide the bags in the trunk shopping. it was marvelous. it's funny - before i started furbish and worked all the time, i used to 'go shopping' on the weekends, but i haven't done it in forever. i forgot how magical wondering around in shops and picking out something you don't need one bit and buying it can be! case in point, i decided today to start collecting spongeware.
it seems like if it's done sparingly (more splatter, less dabbing), it's not too country. i love it. we happened into a really great antique tortoise-shell cabinet at the shop,
and i've got plans to adopt it for a while. i think my new collection will be a perfect start to filling it.
i also got one of these
goooo tell it on the mountain!
