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!

Okay, had not seen the flats but that top has been on my Pinterest style board forever (except in orange, not yellow). I tried to go to AT in our mall only to find it was closed for renovations! Bummer. Need to check back as this was a couple of weeks ago. You've inspired me to shop!

Last year here I terribly required to drop additional mass. Not anything made it easier for me. After really long hunt I found the medication that matched me mainly. Perhaps website you check out.
