Went across the border this weekend with some friends to get them 'stretchy pants' (dual function; for pregnancy and turkey eating). I scored huge. Thankfully everyone did very well so I didn't have to try and hide my good fortune; I still don't think I've stopped smiling. Stocked up on a crapload of summer basics but my biggest finds were at the Saks outlet. I got a Elie Tahari one-shoulder dress that was originally $600, for $35. It's blue and silk chiffon and gorgeous and nothing is wrong with it and it fits just right. I have an event to wear it to next week, so you'll see it I'm sure... AND I got a silk jersey Diane von Furstenberg dress that was originally $300, for $15!!! It's colourful and comfy and casual and has pockets and a low cross strap back and it fits just right. I have a little sneak peak below. I can't wait until it is hot outside and I'm sipping sangria in my DvF. I got skills... they're multiplying...
Just a little tip for the local readers (all seven-ish of you, I love you all!). Check out the Superstore along the QEW in Grimsby, for the Joe Fresh collection. The JF baby collection is sold in more local stores but I think this is the only one nearby with the complete (?) adult collection too. Just our luck, the Grimsby population is not prone to trying new looks, so that leaves a lot of choice. For example, there is a full, blue silk skirt selling for $29 but I know it'll never go and so I'll wait... I know I bitch about the lack of selection at the local h&m and about not having a Zara nearby but I'll gladly go without them for the selection I get at my local Winners and Joe Fresh.
Oh ya. And Joe Fresh just came out with a make-up line. I got a new lipgloss and it is popping!
