Silk popover - Why do I feel like I own something like this? Or maybe it's something J Crew offered. I love tipped items, so this is a looker in my book. Love the online reviews which inform/caution that the black is raw edged. Boo on that. On the upside, many of us are covered with regular, petite & tall sizes.
BR Monogram Alicia bow tee - I really adore this. It also comes in slick rock, which looks like a very pale tan w/white bow or white body/white bow. If you've been waiting for Anthro's volante tee to go on sale, this might be an alternative. I think Anthro's is more fitted. The BR tee seems to have some flow. I do like the quality of the Monogram line and expect this would be nice. You know you could get some ribbon, tie and pin it. I've thought about doing that, but I haven't been too much in a crafty mood since I survived the DIY-ing of my wedding and my cousin's. The bow looks humongous. Go bow, go!
BR recently gave out a coupon card with 3 coupons good for Saturdays in Jan. BOGO one full price item, get the 2nd for 60% off. Well, I did the math. I calculated the piped top & bow top and it came to $112 or so with the 25% off that ends today. Then I calculate with BOGO 60% and it was $113 or so for the 2 tops. Interesting, huh? I'm not a math person. I mean, I can calculate a straight % off very quickly, of course, while I'm shopping in the stores. But as far as deciding whether 25% off vs the BOGO 60% is the better deal, they're looking equal based on my one example.
Chiffon ruffle high heel
Jeweled foldover clutch (on sale $79.99) - 5 star reviews online. I'm refraining from ordering it in red even though it looks a touch tacky. What can I say. I like to walk the line.
Sequin knit wrap - Pretty colors starting at $34.99. The sequins seem really subtle like faint sparkling stars.
In other news, I got this beautiful, beautiful handbag from Ann Taylor. It's not available online so I had to trek back to the store to get it. I made a couple of phone calls to ensure that they would hold one for me and that the 40% off your entire purchase was still in effect. It was around $118 because our tax is ridic. I really want a striped dress since one I got from Mango fell apart. It had some rope wrapped balls at the neckline and they all fell off, ruining the neckline. Anyway, this knit striped dress at Ann Taylor is really cute. I think the stripes are narrower than I want. Hopefully it'll still be available for me to try it on. Kinda steep at $128 for cotton, although I have to say their dresses are usually done well. Plus, there are always promos, like the current 40% in-store and online with SAVE40. As usual, AT is playing the 'limited time' game and not giving an end date to the promo. I am not a fan of that game.
The only drawback are the grosgrain handles. I wish they were leather, but I guess I can wipe them clean. Not that I don't use hand sanitizer & wipes all the live long day.
