On a whim I purchased the Buena Notte Bag last week as a Christmas present to me. On Friday, I walked into Anthropologie and saw the item I’ve been dying to try on since I first saw it on the website.

It nips and tucks you in nice and snug. I tried on both the 6 and 8. The 8 was a little looser but the 6 was va-va-va-voom. Such a pretty little lace-y thing and a pretty penny too! I am not a big lace person but this was just too amazing to pass up. Soooo, MERRY CHRISTMAS to me…again.
I wore it out to dinner with Husband and some friends Saturday night. We were originally supposed to go to Husband’s work Christmas party but he decided he didn’t want to go. I decided I was dressing up anyway.
Cardigan: Kohl’s (100% Cashmere)

Have a great evening!

I’ve been struggling with what I really want to buy during this 30% off promo at J Crew. I have been lusting over the Wool Origami Sheath Dress since it first popped up online.

But I have also been eyeing the Heidi Dress in Prince of Wales Wool. The two-tone really intrigued me. Online says it’s catalog and online only but my store had it along with the Wool Flannel.

So I decided to go to the store to try on the Heidi Dress. There are some new SAs and Personal Shoppers and there’s one girl who is so helpful. Each time I’ve been in and given her something to start a fitting room I find several outfits when I arrive, accessories included. Most of the time I’m not interested in the extra stuff due to time constraints and they are just not my style but I really appreciate the effort.

Anyway, I tried on the Heidi in a 6 and 8. The 6 was a perfect fit and the 8 was a little looser but still a good fit. The PS also brought me the Super 120s Petale’ Dress in Black. It was $49.99 in-store, plus the 30% off. I tried the 6 and it fit great. I didn’t even bother with the 8. It’s a shift dress with and I had the PS bring a belt. It totally change the shape of the dress. I loved it.

So here are the IRLs of the two dresses along with a few other things I bought online last week with the 25% off.

Heidi Dress

Super 120s Petale Dress
Petale’ Dress belted
Double-Serge Stripe Pencil Skirt
Size 8 – Fits perfectly…I normally wear a 6 in JC Pencil Skirts. That size was sold out so I got the 8 and I’m glad I did. A 6 would have been returned.
Worn with JC Black Cashmere Tee
Flannery Peep-Toe Mary Janes
The material, it’s like a quilt, which I’m not a big fan of, but this skirt is lovely.
And…Merry Christmas to me.
Buena Notte Bag – There were two in-store, returns, and it is gorgeous. Sammy, the cat, ruined my dressy black clutch. I think this will do nicely as a great substitute.

I hope the pics helped if you’re still deciding on any items.

Have a great evening.
