fresh off the UPS truck! (Even if not for me personally...) This box chock full of pink and green just arrived from Gymboree for my girls. This latest collection is rather Lilly-esque! I love pink and green so I had to order some Spring outfits. I am trying to cut back on shopping for myself... but kids... kids grow. And last Spring's wardrobe is not going to cut it for them!

OK. I am really trying hard to save up for a little treat. No, a big treat for me. It's this handbag I want. Really want. And I am almost there after several setbacks from things like 30% off at J Crew and Gymbucks. And I did also swing by Nordstrom Rack last week. But, while I contained myself fairly well, buying one pair of Joe's Jeans (Muse style, Blanche wash) for something like $79.90...and I did really need these because I am up a few pounds and really, until I drop a good ten, my several pairs of barely worn to unworn fabulous jeans bought on a very good skinny day cannot be worn. And I can't live in ON yoga pants, Juicy velour (especially since I only have one pair) & J Crew khakies everyday. So I needed these.
I couldn't believe the big names I was running across. I mean. Standing at a rounder - flip a hanger: hey Marc Jacobs! flip: Diane Von Furstenburg! flip: Leifsdottir! flip: Ella Moss! flip: Marc & Diane *again*! flip: Burberry! You get the idea. And these were from the regular Nordstrom store - all at about a third of their normal retail price. I tried on a cute Nanette Lepore jacket - $370.00 retail, marked down to $99.97. But it stayed there. There was even a big Tory Burch shoe display, all cute with her pink & orange boxes stacked up and flats and boots artfully displayed. But I resisted. Because I really want this new bag. And I think, really, the Rack will not be getting anything else fabulous for sooooo long. So I will just stay away - they tend to be hit or miss for me and I had never seen so many big brands before. But then this morning I get an email warning me:
"get ready for new arrivals! fabulous styles from your favorite brands from ... t.b.d. ..." (t.b.d. and savvy are my favorite departments) G-r-e-a-t. For those near a Rack, it starts Feb 24th.
Joe's Muse jean - higher rise so you can actually bend over in public; super soft & lightweight
Nanette Lepore jacket - $99.97 (was $370.00) - this is how they roll at The Rack!

It's still cold out there, but I have seen the robins flitting around... which takes me right to Spring. So do these darling little birdie dishes. There were stacks of them at Anthropologie last week in yellow and blue. Perfect for keeping your earrings at night. #15188634 - $14.00, on sale for $1.95.
