Blazer fail

I got my Lands End Blazer today. It was about 3 inches too big in the stomach area. While I COULD get a smaller size, I'm not going to. The blazer is a lot heavier in weight than I anticipated. It wouldn't get much use here in Florida. I was buying it for a climate where I don't live! So back it goes. So I've negated almost all my shopping damage, yes? :)

Uh, yeah. Because I totally fell off the wagon today. I stopped at the outlet mall. I picked up a skirt at the Ann Taylor outlet for $18.34. I love the simple cut and the plum/grey color combo.

I picture wearing it now with a crisp white button down and black peep toe pumps. Later this year, I see it with a black or plum sweater, black tights and black snakeskin wedges.

Yes? No? Let me have it, girls!

Update on the new shoes...

Well, I got my 6pm.com order yesterday! Unfortunately, both pairs are going back. The Bass shoes were too big. The Boots fit great in the calf, which was my biggest concern. However, they were too tight in the foot. My correct sizes were not available in either shoes, so I guess it wasn't meant to be.

I did order these and used a coupon code to get another 25% off! Let's hope they work out.

Find them here.

I think September needs to be a no-shopping month...

I've gone a little crazy with the shopping lately :(. In preparing for this blogpost, I realized I need to cut myself off for the remainder of August and all of September. Once you see what I've been buying, you will see why...

From Lands End, purchased when their sale items were an additional 30% off. I had a heck of a time trying to add the picture from the Lands End website, so this is the best I could find. I purchased the blazer in Navy.

From 6pm.com, I purchased a pair of Bass loafers and a pair of knee high boots. I have had a struggle with boots since I have big calves. These are wide calf boots, so fingers crossed! I measured my calves and everything, so I'm hopeful these will work out.

I checked the price of these loafers. When I bought them, they were $27. The price has gone back up to $41? Strange!?

I thought I was done. Not so much.

I went to my first Stella & Dot Trunk Show yesterday. I always thought their products were cute online, but I wasn't blown away. However after seeing them in person and being able to try stuff on?? I was hooked :/ These lovely earrings will be making their way to me in a week or so..

Cute, yes?

But it is time, no more shopping till our trip to Chicago at the beginning of October. Help me, readers! Keep me accountable!!!

Come along with me on a shopping spree!

I have been having incredibly bad luck at my beloved Dillard's Clearance Center. However, I was passing by today and decided to give them another shot. I'm so glad I did! Here is what I tried on...

The pink dress, the red flowery dress and the green dress are all Jessica Howard. The blue and white one with the halter esque neckline is by Antonio Melani. The navy blue polka dot dress is by Robbie Bee. With the exception of the Antonio Melani dress, all of the dresses were originally $80 and marked down to $28 each!!! The Antonio Melani dress was regularly $120 (I think) and was marked down to $51.

Which one did I buy? All of them? None of them??

Okay, I'm not good at suspense! I got the red flowery dress with the ruffle neckline, the green dress and the navy polka dot dress! I need to have them all shortened, but otherwise, I am very satisfied! Thanks Dillard's Clearance Center for renewing my faith in you:)

P.S. I did say something to the sales clerk regarding the poor selection as of late. She disclosed that they had not had a delivery in 2.5 months! They JUST got this shipment in a day or so ago. Whooo!!
