Yesterday I went to the mall with my friend. With Friends & Family and sale events happening at Gap, Talbots, Ann Taylor, Express, White House | Black Market, Nordstrom, LOFT and more we decided it would be best to hit the mall to see these great bargains in person.
The only thing of note that I purchased was this dress, which was on the clearance rack, and my friend also purchased for herself. Today I felt a bit more rock & roll, but I imagine this dress with feminine pumps and a skinny belt, in winter with a pashmina and tall boots, and maybe next time worn with an accent color. The dress is uber comfortable – a nice weight of jersey that has weight, drapes nicely, and the pleated skirt swishes when you walk.
Other than this dress, I got two pairs of tights (black super opaque and berry), and one pair of earrings (brushed gold chandelier). I really wasn't inspired. And if you can believe it, the only thing I got at Ann Taylor for their Friends & Family was their leopard wrap skirt, which I got online and should receive this week. While there is much out there that I WANT, there is very little that I NEED.
This weekend was quite lovely. Friday night my husband and I went to dinner in town, then went to the community theater to see our friend star in their version of Alice in Wonderland. After, we went to his house to celebrate his performance and also wish safe travels to his girlfriend and my good friend (she is going to South Africa for a month to work at an animal sanctuary). Saturday I did a lot of necessary cleaning around the house – FINALLY got everything back in the repaired closet, packed up all my husband's summer clothes for the attic, washed all the laundry. Yesterday I went to the mall with my friend and after my husband made dinner for the four of us (her husband joined us).
