I tried a smaller mall (last weekend, I went to the Mall of America) today, trying to find some cute clothes. I had two missions: black pants and a cardigan for the sweater dress. Here's what happened.
First, before I went to the mall, I got a haircut. I am very happy with it. H thinks this is a Jennifer Aniston haircut. I do not think so, but H is weird, so I am not worried about this comment. H also hates that I am wearing a long sleeved shirt with a 3/4-length sleeved sweater over it. Too bad.
Then I went to the Gap because I had a coupon for 20% off. I have been looking for a clutch for several months, but all the ones I like are $75 or more. I am not paying $75 for a clutch.
This clutch was only $24.50 (before my coupon), so I bought it.
I also bought this Jackie O jacket, which I can wear with pretty much all my work clothes. I will probably not wear this red shirt with the jacket, but I make no promises.
Here is a picture I took last week of my Banana Republic dress. You can see my old haircut here.
I would freeze in my office this winter in short sleeves, so I needed a way to winterize the sweater dress. I tried wearing shirts under the dress, but the collar is so scoopy (technical term) that nothing worked right.
I found the perfect cardigan at The Gap. I am wearing jeans under the dress in this picture, but only because I didn't feel like taking them off just for the picture.
Here is a close up of my fat feet in the gray tights I will wear with the sweater dress. The tights are from Target.
And here are the shoes I will wear with my sweater dress. I wear these shoes all the time. I heart patent.
So I only accomplished half of my shopping mission, but black pants can wait.
And now you must excuse me because I have to go drink some absinthe.
