Our neighborhood ladies go to lunch every month. I go every once in a while only because I’m one of the only 30-something’s. Most everyone else is late 40s and up but it’s still fun and you get to hear all the neighborhood gossip.
I put tights on first but I don’t think I pulled it off so I’m going bare-legged.
The shoes – Love these…the back is so cool. It changes from purple to blue…sooo pretty. (Although I wanted these so badly I didn’t size up in them. Just a teeny bit tight on the left.)
Blouse: Leifsdottier Gathered Top (I didn’t realize it was so sheer, I think more so with the flash.)
Skirt: J Crew Deco Shirred Skirt
Tights: Anthropologie-Eloise Mullion Tights
Shoes: Heartbreak Cutout by Nanette Lepore
Necklace: Faux Pearl w/Chains – Saks Off 5th
What do you think? Tights? No Tights?
I posted my first item for sale on ebay last night. A pair of Christian Louboutin Ballerina Flats. I love them but have never worn them since they don’t fit. I know I shouldn’t have bought them but I had been coveting them for so long and when I found them at the outlet I had to have them. Size was something I could work out. But, alas, that was not the case.
Of course, I did this after I spent too much money shopping today. I was only going to J Crew to try on a dress and order the other color it came in. But, J Crew is in the mall and I had a coupon for Victoria’s Secret (free panty) and Banana Republic (25% off $100 or more) and wanted to stop by Sak’s to see if they had the Nanette Lepore dress.
J Crew: I tried on the Embossed Cotton Dip-Dye Lorelei dress in Papaya and the Ombre’ Lorelei dress in Mineral Grey. I ordered the Dip-Dye Lorelei dress in Navy.
They were both very pretty and summery. I don’t know if J Crew does this for all their strapless dresses but there was a band in the back, like on a bra, that you hooked for more support. I’m always worried with strapless dresses that I will not have enough support to keep it held up and it will fall at the most in-opportune time. But this was supportive and I did remember to wear a strapless bra with it too. I don’t have any fears that this will fall off me.
V/S: Naturally, some more undergarment staples-bras and panties. I did buy two of their Bio-Fit bras – a regular one and the 7-way one but I haven’t tried them on yet.
Banana Republic: I bought a silver multi-chain necklace and a halter giraffe print top.
Sak’s: This is the other upscale department store we have in the area. It was here way before the Neiman Marcus showed up and has a much better shoe salon (IMO). They also had a 30% off sale. I breezed through the women’s and shoe side before heading to J Crew knowing I’d have to go back through on my way out. I’m glad I did. I found some pretty, royal blue Kate Spade heels on sale. I can’t wait to wear them tomorrow with my yellow Tabitha tunic I bought at Anthropologie. I found some nice Cole Haan’s for my mom – a late mother’s day present. I saw all the beautiful Louboutin’s they had along with Jimmy Choo’s! I did look for my Nanette Lepore dress I wanted but couldn’t find it there.
This is the Nanette Lepore dress I’m lusting over. It’s called the Helios Tunic Dress
I ended up ordering it online from Neiman Marcus. I didn’t want it to “get away” because I know I won’t be able to find it again. I hope it’s just a gorgeous in real life and that it fits!
NOW I have to be done with shopping, right? I do have to work in the office tomorrow so I might stop by the outlet mall and check out Barney’s and NM Last Call.
We shall see!
