All business

In an earlier outfit post, I talked about finding some good sales recently when I went to the mall to use a couple of gift cards. At Mexx, this pencil skirt was marked down from $90 to $15 and the slim cropped green trousers I'm wearing in this post were on sale for $30 from $90. In that same post, I'm wearing a pair of Old Navy booties that were originally about $32. My gift card had about $27 left on it. When I got the cash to pay for the shoes, the sales associate said they looked like they'd been worn and returned to the store. She said she could offer me a discount. I figured she'd knock 5% or 10% off. She proceeded to give me a 50% discount!! I hadn't mentioned anything to her and other than the shoes missing a price tag, I couldn't tell there was anything different about them. So I got my shoes and some socks for B as well. Don't you love when unexpectedly nice things like that happen? Equally nice was realizing how perfectly the skirt went with my big vintage stone belt when I got home!

In other updates-from-earlier-posts, thanks for the kind comments on the work situation. It was cathartic to write about it. Not that I'll be thinking much about work come Friday - B and I are going on holiday to Eastern Europe for two weeks!! 

But don't worry, I've got you covered with a series of guest posters. I gave them a remix theme so each will be showing you the versatile ways they've worn a (self-selected) item from their wardrobe. I can't wait for you all to see the results and hope you find their style as inspiring as I do!

  3. I don't know how it feels to have something that nice happen because it never has........(enter sad song here)But seriously, how cool is that? What a great and unexpected shopping thrill.
