Weekly Shopping Update

April 12, 2013

Khatu asked me to fill in for her while she is lounging on some sandy beach in Punta Cana (she has no idea how much I wish our roles were reversed). Visit her blog to read about my infatuation with trench coats.

Kate Spade's Friends & Family sale started today; use code S13FFUS for 25% off your entire purchase.

Mercer Isle: Sienna | Small Sloan | Sloan | Booker

Too many bows? I think not. For those of you whose maximum tolerance for bows is one, check out the Bradshaw or Leigh.

Bow Terrace: Felisha | Janis | Tosha

I did not decide to keep the Essential Denim Jacket from a recent order. I am looking for something with a more cropped length. I also vacillate between wanting a darker-washed denim jacket and a lighter-wash one.

I spotted the Faux Leather Satchel from the last shopping update in a store and think the quality is passable for the price.

I browse Loehmann's website a lot but rarely make a purchase. I am eager to try a few styles in the reasonably-priced footwear department but the fact that I don't live near a Loehmann's dissuades me from ordering (returns can be made by mail but return shipping is not a flat rate).

Moving on to Zara, whose spring line did not appeal to me as much as its fall collection did. I saw and fell in love with the Animal Print Jacquard Dress in a store and ordered the XS to try. The dress didn't work for me because I neglected to remember that for TRF (junior sizing) dresses I normally size up to sizes S or M. The size XS was difficult to zip up for me and exposed more cleavage than what I am personally comfortable with. The pleated skirt is very pretty and I might reorder this in a size up to try.

I also saw the Office City Bag in brown (I own this in black) and asked my friend S to model for me. She's 5 feet tall and very slim. I think the bag in black hides the cheap material better than the brown version.

One other item that I saw in store and ordered online to further scrutinize is the Maxi Pearl Necklace. At $29.90 it's the most affordable of similar items I have seen but I'd rather have the Kenneth Jay Lane  Simulated Pearl Cluster Necklace that Lissy blogged about recently.

Shop Ann Taylor's 30% off sale online with code 4FRIENDS13. The new arrivals section is a balanced mixture of bright colors and more monochromatic prints.

On my own personal wishlist front: the black and dark brown bags I used with frequency for the past few months now seem insipid and incongruous. It doesn't help that everywhere I turn a shiny white bag or a vibrant green tote seem to call out my name.

One of the only keepers for me from Banana Republic as of late is the Chevron Striped Ponte Dress. I loved it on Ping but wasn't sure if it would look "off" on me because of my frontal waist-to-hip ratio (or lack thereof). I decided to keep it even though it's not particularly figure-enhancing but with strategic styling I should be able to make this work (the justification process begins...).

Lastly, the most impractical (and frivolous) purchase that I am currently contemplating is this Black Halo jumpsuit. At $390 it's somewhat within grasp but not exactly budget-friendly so I will be watching this like a hawk until it goes on (serious) sale.
Happy Friday, everyone! I hope you enjoy your weekend.
