So, I made it out shopping this weekend – I had a 15% off coupon for Madewell I wanted to use, and it was a beautiful day Saturday to go to my local outdoor super-upscale strip mall (The Domain) LOL. Here’s what I tried on…
At Barney’s Co-Op I got an up close & personal look at the quilted luggage Alexander Wang Rocco bag, and I think I’m in love!! It seems to be a bit lighter than my bag – I think that’s because the leather is thinner – and I really love the color in person.
I also got to try on this Marc by Marc Jacobs dress I’ve had in my “hearts” section at Shopbop forever…as well as the skirt only version:
I still love the dress, but wouldn’t pay close to full price for it – the top is strange; it has “flaps” that tie together at the sides. I think it makes it interesting, but it’s unnecessary in my opinion. The pockets are placed right on the hip, and they do flare out a bit, adding a little bulk around the hip area, but all in all, the dress was pretty cute on. I think I’ll wait until I can get it for under $100 though…
And the skirt was really cute, but a little short on me – if it hadn’t been too short, I would’ve bought it in a second – it’s just the interesting, unique skirt I’m looking for.
Speaking of too short…this A.P.C. Madras dress is the CUTEST DRESS EVER…but also a little too short for me. I really hate to show my knees and this one showed too much for my comfort, but the fit was great, and the dress, just really cute. I tried it on in the pink version.
I drooled over all the Vince pieces, and vowed to start adding more Vince to my wardrobe, but ultimately left Barney’s Co-Op with nothing. I did meet a great SA named Sari who runs a personal shopping service, Pretty on the Outside, and we talked clogs 😉 apparently, I’m not the only clog addict out there…
Then, I headed over to Madewell to use my coupon. I tried on several cute tanks & tops, but always felt the fit was kind of “off.” I ended up with a great linen cardigan in pretty Spring colors that was on sale for $44 and a striped tank top. Supposedly online shopping will launch in May (can’t wait!!!). I’m going back this week to take the tank top back and pick up a belt or two…
I also drooled over these Stuart Weitzman sandals, wishing I could buy them…
But I really think I just want a comfortable pair of wedges. *gasp!!*
What did you do this weekend?
Oh, those Stuart Weitzman sandals are gorgeous! I said I wasn’t into the clog-type sandal but I broke down and just purchased a much more wallet (and walking) friendly pair of Miz Mooz sandals that I love…and you can never go wrong with a good wedge!
Sounds like a fun shopping trip–I’ve been looking for more summer cardigans, thanks for reminding me about Madewell. We’ll have to go sometime together and then get tea and scones at the Steeping Room!
oh yes!!! my dad came to town for a few days yesterday, so we went back today and walked around. the steeping room looks awesome – anytime you want…I’m game!
I love the Marc by Marc Jacobs dress!
