So here’s the deal. Instead of going home last night to finish this blog, Miss M and I headed out to Nordstrom. There, I spent too much money, on too much good stuff, that I will hopefully wear until the seams fall out. As a result, I didn’t finish the Polyvore set for today’s post. (bad, Belle, bad)
However, I owe you a set so here’s what we’ll do. Tomorrow, I’ll put the Two Ways for the Zara heels up at 11:00AM, the Discuss at noon and the Happy Hour at 1:00PM.
Thanks for your patience, see you tomorrow.
P.S. Want to know what I bought? Look away Mom & Dad, you don’t need to see this.
I was convinced I wouldn’t find anything until we went to the section where they have my current favorite brand, McGinn. I purchased this black dress wth navy insets and a black tweed blazer with white detail. (Thank goodness for gift cards.)
Also, I bought two pairs of Hanky Pankies with Swarovski crystal Republican elephants on them. They also have Dem ones and a pair with a flag, for you non-partisan folks.
I also bought several pairs of Commando tights. My favorites (so opaque). They were $22 instead of $34, so I stocked up like a squirrel hoarding nuts for winter.
Beth Anderson says:
Are the tights thick enough to be somewhat warm for long outdoor walks in the winter? Meaning all day sightseeing or city wandering…
Ah, yes, Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale. I also spent way to much money on great items!
Ms CReed says:
Very good taste. Love the blazer. The dress seems to be a little on the 'mini' side. Can you refer me to some great midi dresses / skirts? I'm close to 6' and wearing mini skirts and dresses doesn't seem as professional. Any suggestions? Also, too funny….'stocked up like a squirrel hoarding nuts for winter' – I know/loathe the feeling of finding a great find and many color options on discount. Oh, what a joyous feeling 🙂
Ms CReed:The dress is knee length. It's touching the top of the model's knees, so it is in no way a minidress. But if you're worried it might be too short on a taller woman, Lafayette 148 also makes skirts and dresses in mid lengths.
Belle – How do the Commando tights compare to Hue's opaque ones?
Dr. Jean Grey says:
I'd love to see how you style that jacket. It's probably my build, but I can never get those kind of cropped jackets to look right.
Jeanna: I like them better, but Hue is a good substitute.
Beth: Have you tried fleece lined tights?
The dress and jacket are AMAZING. I am going to have to turn off the computer now because I want that dress bad.
Belle- Do you have any recommendations for fleece lined tights? I tried buying some from the internet a while back and when they came in I discovered they weren't seamless. 🙁 Speaking of, are the Commando tights seamless? Or at least seamless enough that they don't resemble a diaper in the back?
