fashion for the rest of us, and shopping

By 4/30/2012

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.

  5. 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!

  6. I bought those flats too - saw them on atlantic pacific. Sadly too small - bummer!
