Today is the last day for...
FYI -- I saw an EXTRA50% off clearance at the San Francisco flagship on Market Street (4/29).
I have added irl pics to an Old Navy post
This post doesn't have irl pics, but I have updated it with comments about items I have received and tried.
Yes, yes, I bought a travel mug at Old Navy. The cozy or coozie (Mr. Gi calls it) you see next to it is sold separately. I would prefer a mug that is certified as chemical free. There is no such labeling on this cutie. However, I use travel mugs so infrequently and I'll probably use this just after I get my $5 usage from it. Make that $4 as it was 20% off. I am guessing at the price. I don't have my receipt handy. They're not online; in-store only.
Here are some of the tees I tried irl. I didn't keep any of these. None jumped out as a must have.
This is the Flirt Mid-Rise Straight-Leg Denim Capris, $15. Many of ON capris are currently on promo for $15.
Katie sweater via swap/exch. THANKS LilacCupcake!!!! :-),
Talbots patent leather thongs (08)
These are a size 6. I think this is the Mercury color. I like the lighter color as an alternative to J Crew's dark matchstick capris (08). I'm thinking I may need a 4 because they may stretch out while wearing them. They are 75% cotton and 25% poly. That's not too much poly, but I may want the extra room for breathing.
Heck -- at $15, you could get an extra pair to try your hand at distressing.
Metallic Shoes - Currently $12.99 - I rarely look in the shoe section, but there I was messing around online. Probably talking the phone to someone and surfing. I *had* to try these.
Me likey. They remind me of a vintage shoe I had in silver. They were old & starting to fall apart. The gold were really comfortable when I stepped into them. They gape eversoslightly on the sides, but nothing major.
Also very cute, but the silver didn't thrill me personally. Also, it was the same size as gold, but the fit wasn't as good. These gaped more. It has been pointed out that we should try an item of clothing in multiples of the same size to pick the best one. It appears shoes can be the same way.
I saw one pair of these in-store yesterday and they were *so* cute. I wanted to try them to see how they felt on, but they were a size 6. No go. They *are* synthetic/man-made. The good thing, though, is that a platform has more support than a regular shoe, so... I dunno. They're $17.99. They're still available on the website. I didn't order them. I know I won't wear 'em.
I'll leave you w/the next ON coupon info I received as a BR cardholder:
5/2 - 5/21 - Buy one, get one 40% off when you use your GAP or BR card
5/29 - 5/31 - Free flag tee with any GAP or BR card purchase
6/19 - 6/25 - 30% off one kids item when you use your GAP or BR card
Totally OT, but I have to share. It's 11:40 pm and we just got a knock on the door. My heart was thumping. I'm thinking WHO is this? Can't be Jehovahs. Too late. Maybe a transient? Then I'm thinking maybe we had some property damage and a neighbor came to tell us. Mr. Gi looks out the window and it's 2 officers. My heart starts thumping faster -- I'm thinking, WHAT has happened? We open the door and they ask if we've been arguing. I said, "No, not tonite. We're really good, actually."
Well you can't be subtle or sublime with officers. Duh. Meanwhile, Mr. Gi and I have forgotten about the fresh scar has has above his eyebrow. He took a tumble when we went rollerblading the other day. So they keep asking us questions. I recounted how I'd gone out to the car and come back in and how it's been a very quiet nite. Mr. Gi said this is about how it usually is. We were asked the same-ish questions -- you know, same stuff but in a different way to see if we'd crack, I guess. Mr. Gi remembers the scar and tells them about it. That broke the ice and we ended up cracking jokes about throwing things and me being a mini meanie. Mr. Gi asked if he they wanted to see the raspberry on his leg that accompanied the scar above his eye. They said no, he could keep his pants on.
I'm so glad it was nothing. Either someone called in the wrong address or the officers went to the incorrect location. I'm so glad it's all good in my personal hood. Esp since Gigi came out from an appt the other day to find her car was towed away. Didn't see the (no parking between 4p-7p) sign. That was NO fun.
Dontcha love people that refer to themselves in the 3rd person? I like trying it out on the blog. *lol*
