Madewell Sale

Uniqlo Puffy DressMAdewell just made well. Wait, huh? They made me feel well I mean. Why? Because ladies and gents today begins the additional 30% off sale SALE! A sale so good it makes you want to slap yo’ mama. Why you would want to do that though is beyond me. I’m actually quite fond of my mom and would never want to hurt her, much less slap her.

Back to Madewell. I for one am a huge fan of their t-shirts and tank tops. Good quality, long, and the shapes don’t get all out of whack. Granted, I’m 5’9″ and usually wear a X-small or small in most shirts, but here lately I’ve been going up a size or two. For one thing I like the slouchy look, but for another, I like my wrists to actually be covered by shirts that are supposed to be long sleeve. The same theory applies to my navel. I’m not one for revealing it to just anyone so I like my shirts to cover it. So there.

Now while you’re checking out all that Madewell has going on, wander on over to Uniqlo too. There is some GOOD stuff on sale there right now! Hell, even not on sale they have the best prices around. Currently I’m eyeing several of the men’s button up shirts, some slouchy linen shorts, and a puffy dress. I think the grand total of 3 items may be $100…maybe. And hey, if you rack up that much you get free shipping. Win-Win!

Spring Layers

Spring is coming…I swear. In fact, I’m fairly certain it has already come, yet days like today lead one to wonder. That’s a bit of an elusive sentence eh? Wonder what you may ask? A lot of things actually, but I digress.

Today it’s a chilly 64 degrees out, overcast, and a bit windy. For the record, I firmly believe that a good meteorologist ought to include a portion of his/her forecast dedicated to what sort of attire is appropriate for the day. For example, on a brisk windy day, for girls like me who have a proclivity toward wearing pouffy skirts and dresses it would be nice to know before I leave my house and my aforementioned skirt blows over my head that perhaps it wasn’t a great option for that specific day in the first place.

At any rate, today I’ve layered up in a comfy black knit dress with one of those sort of weird, billowy, mullet hemlines. Over that I’m sporting an unusually dainty cardigan that also has a sort of bizarre hemline and the front is crocheted-sort of a throwback to my hippie days in high school I guess. Anyway, over that I decided a dose of denim always makes everything better and threw on a denim jacket I’ve owned literally for at least ten years. Then I capped it off with an incredibly classic trench coat. Finishing touches? Absurdly tall wedge heels-orange strappy with a snake print linen wedge that I’m pretty sure I bought at TJ Maxx around the same time I got the jean jacket. Then I have on this ridiculous, huge necklace from Anthropologie (similar to the one in the picture below) Antrho Big Necklaceand a gold cuff a la Stella & Dot. Total outfit cost…I’d guess it’s easily under $250, and nearly half of that is the bracelet, which is $98 but I got for only $50.

Pictures? Eh, that would be worth more than the above 1000 words I know. I’ll see what I can work it for you 🙂
