Whoa – I’ve been on a spending spree since Saturday!! And now, I must be done with my Fall shopping; I don’t even have enough left for a new bag. But I decided that I don’t need one right now anyway (we’ll see how long that lasts…). And thankfully, it’s starting to feel a little like Fall here, although it will warm up a lot during the day…
So, on to my purchases:
First, Anthropologie. You know already that I love Anthropologie, but now, I love them even more. I took back the orange skirt with the broken zipper on Saturday to return it thinking I’d get the sale price because I didn’t have a receipt, but then I remembered that it was my first purchase using my Anthro card and that they could look it up. So, I got my full purchase price back!! Yipee!! And then I proceeded to turn right around and get this Velvet dress:
It’s really beautiful on – love the color (yes, I know…gray!!) and the detailing around the neckline. The fit is super-flattering also (my pic from the dressing room LOL):
Then, I went over to Calypso to try on this sweater I was looking at online (they were offering a 20% off code over the weekend, but I wanted to try it on first, before ordering) and found out that in store, they would give me $50 off any purchase over $150 (SCORE!), so I got it:
Some ways to wear it (took these to share with Sydney after I got home)
FINALLY…I went into Barney’s Co-Op to take a peek at the new stuff, and Rachel (the most super-fabulous SA) showed me an AMAZING Opening Ceremony cardigan that she just bought for herself. There is not a picture of it online anywhere, and it’s tough to describe, but it’s a long cardigan with pockets that’s cropped in the back. I mean, it’s kind of like shrug-length in the back, but down to my knees in the front, and it has kind of a patched, fair isle pattern in black/gray/white all over it. I loved it, but wasn’t sure enough to buy it on the spot, so I called Sydney to obsess about it for awhile after I put it on hold (because there were only 2 left in my size in the entire country) and she agreed to come back and look at it with me on Sunday. She did, and I bought it 🙂 It’s unlike anything I own, and therefore, I thought it deserved to be in my closet. Hopefully it will cool off enough that I can wear it, and I’ll take a picture for you.
And just when I thought I was done…Goldyn goes and offers 40% off their site today only with code “luckydaily1.” I mentioned to Sydney when we were out yesterday that if I got the Opening Ceremony sweater, that would probably be it for me for Fall, besides maybe a pair of No6 Shearling booties, and a necklace or two (I am in DIRE need of a longer, bold necklace). So now, because of Goldyn’s coupon code, I’m good on jewelry too!! I got these two necklaces for just under $150:
Now. I am done.
Are you doing any Fall shopping? What have you bought?
