Pattern Play


Jacket: Zara  /  Shirt: Gap  /  Skirt: Ann Taylor  /  Shoes: Steve Madden (similar here) /  Sunnies: Target (similar here)  /  Necklace: Ann Taylor (old)

Every once in awhile, a “magical” article of clothing will appear before my eyes and make me want to spend full price just to have it in my possession asap.  Congratulations Ann Taylor, you and your perfectly patterned paisley skirt did it.  I am officially obsessed with this print and cannot wait to style this all sorts of ways.   Luckily, you sent me a coupon baiting me to spend more than I wanted to in order to receive a dollar amount off my total.  Funny how marketing works, isn’t it?  I did find a gorgeous pair of tan leather boots there on mega sale.  I think this was a personal best in sale shopping; originally $328, but scored them for just $20 dollars.  Thank you, thank you! I feel the congratulatory pats:)  I guess my little shopping excursion was worth it.  Like my friend Al says “I wasn’t bad, but I wasn’t good!”

So, this is me just hangin’ out in the parking lot in my snazzy ensemble.  I have to say, after about six months of blogging, I still feel silly taking pictures in public.  People are always looking and I can’t help thinking they wonder what the hell is going on.  My response: nothing to see here people, except for my checkered jacket, it’s on sale if you’d like one for yourself!  Are you ready for the winner, winner, chicken dinner???  Thank you to everyone who entered the eShakti giveaway!
