It’s been a hectic couple of weeks and I’ve spent a lot of time cooped up indoors – so I was more than ready for some alone time at the mall this weekend – and some much needed retail therapy. I only had a couple of hours to myself – but I was able to get a lot done.
First stop was H&M (which has ridiculous queues on the weekend – both for the dressing room and cashier). There was a pink-checked shirt I’d been eyeing for months – but never had the opportunity to try on. I had seen a similar one at J.Crew but I liked the H&M version better.
It would look better with a belt but I wasn’t wearing one today. It was $24.95 – and it came home with me.
I also purchased this crisp white button-down – it’s a classic and a steal at $24.95.
This pinkish-beige wrap also came home with me – I can never resist pinkish beige – it’s my favorite color! I’d wear it with a looser camisole: price: $34 or $39. Want to see what didn’t make the cut?
This lace top – although I love white cotton in the summer, I feel like the style made me look frumpy.
This sequined sweater – I was DESPERATELY searching for a top like this over winter break – it would have been so lovely for holiday parties. If they had this in my size (I tried on a medium but I’m usually a small) I would definitely have picked this up.
-I was in dire need of new bras, so I went to Victoria’s Secret – it’s a good thing I got measured there – I’m usually a 34B, but at VS I was a 32C. Everything looked MUCH better after I tried on the right size (I’m not sure if my bra size has changed or if VS sizes things differently than my regular lingerie retailer). This is the bra I got – now that I know my size and style, I’m going to wait for a good promo to pick up some more – at $50+ they’re pricey!
-The pink-beige purse was $4.95 at H&M, I’m going to use it for loyalty cards and gift cards (so my regular wallet doesn’t get too heavy).
-After seeing OPI’s Mod About You everywhere I looked (blogs and Youtube) I decided it was a sign that I needed my own bottle.
-The rest of the items are from Winners – OPI nailpolish remover ($9 instead of $20) OPI Femme de Cirque Minis ($7 instead of $16), hand scrub treatment with gloves and handbutter, Pedi-scrub foot sponges and heavy duty pedicure tools.
While I was out shopping, I kept running into this gorgeously stylish woman – she was wearing light pink skinnies, a camel sweater and a brown leather jacket – I was thisclose to taking a photo of her for my blog – or at least asking her where she bought her clothes – but I was so rushed I didn’t really have the time to stop and chat. Do you ever stop and ask people where they bought something?
