Wow. I think I’ve only just now recovered from Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales, etc. Not only was I busy posting sales & codes, but I was also SHOPPING! I really didn’t buy much, but there were a few holes in my wardrobe I needed to fill, which I have. My most pressing need was for shoes, and after that, I really wanted to pick up a couple of tie-waist cardigans, one specifically to wear with leggings. I don’t have an outfit picture yet, but my wonderful father (who was visiting this week) bought this sweater from Anthropologie for me. It’s absolutely perfect, and works well with my black Hudson pants/leggings. I love the color, and although the detailing around the waist is “interesting,” it works on me, and I love how it showcases my waist.
Then on cyber Monday when Endless was offering $30 off orders over $100, I picked up two pairs of Swedish Hasbeens (I’m now sure I will pick up any style, any color that goes on sale – I love these shoes!). I realized after ordering and sending back the two pairs of Seychelles booties a few weeks ago, that clogs are my thing. I always gravitate to them, they work with everything, and they are just my style; so far, I have one pair of very high heel Sportmax clogs that are nearly 7 years old, a pair of No. 6 suede high heel clogs, Danko mary jane style clogs, silver low heel Cape Clogs, and three pairs of Swedish Hasbeens.
And then, even though I tried very hard not to…I used a free overnight shipping promo at James Perse to pick up this hooded fleece cardigan. It was really an impulse buy, although I had been looking at it for a while, I never really considered buying it…until it just hit me. I bought it, and I couldn’t be happier. Right now, it’s my favorite piece; I want to wear it with everything. And since it doesn’t get very cold here, I use it as a “coat” and layer it over a long sleeve tee & cashmere sweater. It’s perfectly warm, and I just love the neckline that’s created by the hood. I really try to avoid buying hooded things lately, but I don’t think that this neckline could be achieved without the hood, so I’m happy to have it!

Tomorrow I have a couple more James Perse pieces coming from the Rue La La sample sale (get a $10 credit if you sign-up via my link!!), and a pair of wide leg Splendid french terry pants from Shop La Style using their 20% off cyber monday code. And now, aside from wanting a pair of lower-heeled brown clogs (to wear in the outfit below with the navy pants instead of the light clogs), I think I’m done shopping for myself for a while 🙂
What did you guys pick up during the Black Friday/Cyber Monday madness? anything?
