I’m a July baby – and when hubby asked me what I wanted for my birthday this year, I told him: an “outlet day” during our summer vacation. Well – I’m back from my day – and I got some fun stuff (and great deals!)
My first stop was the Kate Spade store – I’ve always loved the simple and preppy Kate Spade style. I picked up a small white leather bag ($99) and cheerful toiletry bag ($22.50).
Next I went to the fabled CCO – until recently, I’d always walk by it – now I know it has a treasure trove of MAC products!
I got two 2009 holiday sets (I had almost bought them when they were full price at the MAC stores…I had such a hard time resisting!) and a set of lipglasses. The pink box ($25.25) is the “Put a spell on you” set with pink mini-bag, babysparks dazzleglass, Dervish lip pencil and Dream lipstick. The maroon box ($34.75) is the “Do the trick” brush set and has brushes: 168SE, 187SE, 209SE, 219SE and 252SE. The Little Darlings coral lipglass set ($15.50) has 5 colours: Underage, Wonderstruck, Budding, Ola Mango and Pink Grapefruit.
My last stop was JCrew. I loved these studded belts ($23.60 each) so I got two. The Whisper V-neck cardigan ($14.98) is really lightweight – the perfect summer cover up. I also got this white ruffle tank ($24.50) – I probably didn’t need it – but JCrew do ruffles so well – so I thought it would be worth it.
