Notes: I picked up a pair of yellow Watling Rain Boot for $39 (was well reviewed on the Nordstrom website) the other day even though I have no need whatsoever for another pair of rain boots. The same pair is still available in sizes 5, 9 and 11 but I have seen other sizes pop back on occasion. The Le Chameau Iris II boots that I love are also on sale for $79 in several colors (red, purple, coral, black, and gray). There's also a version with faux fur lining that's available in black and brown.

Notes: I am looking to "invest" in some quality sweaters from Brooks Brothers but their sale prices just won't budge. Currently eying the Cashmere Cable Crewneck Sweater (love the pale hues of Brooks Brothers palette, a nice change from J. Crew's often vibrant offerings) and the Lambswool Polka Dot Sweater.
|Cashmere Turtleneck Sweater | Cashmere Cable Crewneck Sweater | Cashmere Cable V-Neck Sweater|
|Bib Dress | Cashmere Intarsia Crewneck|
Discount: Up to 70% off new markdowns (the in-store sale is an additional 50% off already reduced prices).
Notes: I stopped by a store yesterday and tried on ~ two dozens styles but left them all behind. I did place an order online (which consisted of this sweater and some full-priced items, I've worn my other polka dot sweaters with enough frequency to warrant adding another to the rotation).
In-store prices are truly tempting. I really liked this girls' navy/gold bow coat but the large was too small for me.
The next jacket is the only item I really wanted to bring home but it was a hefty $42.80 and I couldn't justify buying it. Surprisingly sturdy and expensive looking for Forever 21 - the price reflects better material and hardware.
|$8 quilted faux leather jacket|
|$6 cardigan with zip|
|$5 Plaid Skater Skirt|
If you need fillers for your online order, I bought the Bow Metal Cuff online in rose gold and took a picture when I saw them in-store. I think they are pricey ($5.80) for a tiny piece of metal but they are cuter than I expected. I am actually thinking about getting all three colors (eventually).
