New Additions

I had to take back some of the items from the two sales I posted about last week - 2 items were too large and one was too small. While I was in the store, I traded out for the items above. I have eyed the brown top on the left for about a month, since all items in the store were 20% off, and I don't see any sign of it going on clearance, I grabbed it today.

Old Navy Get and Give Sale

Everything at Old Navy, Gap and BR is 30% off through Sunday for the Get and Give Event. I get 30% off, The Leukemia and Lymphoma Foundation gets 5% back. I picked up the following:

Yellow Floral Canvas Bag $11.55 after discount
Navy Canvas Bag $11.55 after discount
Yellow Floral Cardigan $6.55 after discount

Since I can't wear yellow too well, even though I love it, I am hoping that some of these splashes thrown in with other colors will do well. I really hope I get the cardigan. When I went back online after purchasing, it looks like its sold out in my size. (eek) Guess we will see if I get the cancellation email.

OOTD March 13

Casual Friday:
White Shirt - Vantage Apparel (from work) $10
Brown Tee - The Loft ?
Dark Jeans - Lane Bryant $55
Simulated Turq Bracelet - Ebay

My jeans are another item that I think I have the cost per wear down. Sometimes the $50+ items are well worth it if you are going to wear them often! :-)

Clearance at Talbots

So, after my weekend mini-spree, I log-on to see that Talbots has reduced a bunch of prices in their outlet, so I picked up a couple of solid wardrobe pieces, that I can mix and match into what I already have:

Indigo Cross Dyed Blazer - $13.25
Safari Style Tunic (in White) -$11.00
U-neck 3/4 sleeve striped tee (in Daffodil/White) $7.50
Stretch Denim Blazer (in Sand Dollar) $16.50

One of the things I love about Talbots is being able to find clothes that is properly fitted for petites, from the jackets to the tees to the pants. Its nice to have a shoulder seam line up with my shoulder.

Weekend Talbots.com Buys

I find I am fixated on Navy - and Yellow, but since I can't wear yellow too well - its mostly the navy and white I have been eyeing. This weekend, I picked out a few things online that have been on my list for ages....

1. White Capris (Needed NO CUFF and DENIM - not cotton/twill)
2. White Short Sleeve Top
3. Navy Top

I also grabbed a cute scarf I have been watching. These items were all on sale at Talbots. About $80 before shipping for the 4 pieces. We shall see how they fit when they arrive. This is the start of my summer wardrobe planning.

Who Are you?

Fun Quiz I took - was only 2 questions long - but sadly pretty accurate nonetheless..

Your result for Are You a Jackie or a Marilyn? Or Someone Else? Mad Men-era Female Icon Quiz...

You Are a Bette!


You are a Bette -- "I must be strong"

Bettes are direct, self-reliant, self-confident, and protective.

How to Get Along with Me

  • * Stand up for yourself... and me.

  • * Be confident, strong, and direct.

  • * Don't gossip about me or betray my trust.

  • * Be vulnerable and share your feelings. See and acknowledge my tender, vulnerable side.

  • * Give me space to be alone.

  • * Acknowledge the contributions I make, but don't flatter me.

  • * I often speak in an assertive way. Don't automatically assume it's a personal attack.

  • * When I scream, curse, and stomp around, try to remember that's just the way I am.

What I Like About Being a Bette

  • * being independent and self-reliant

  • * being able to take charge and meet challenges head on

  • * being courageous, straightforward, and honest

  • * getting all the enjoyment I can out of life

  • * supporting, empowering, and protecting those close to me

  • * upholding just causes

What's Hard About Being a Bette

  • * overwhelming people with my bluntness; scaring them away when I don't intend to

  • * being restless and impatient with others' incompetence

  • * sticking my neck out for people and receiving no appreciation for it

  • * never forgetting injuries or injustices

  • * putting too much pressure on myself

  • * getting high blood pressure when people don't obey the rules or when things don't go right

Bettes as Children Often

  • * are independent; have an inner strength and a fighting spirit

  • * are sometimes loners

  • * seize control so they won't be controlled

  • * figure out others' weaknesses

  • * attack verbally or physically when provoked

  • * take charge in the family because they perceive themselves as the strongest, or grow up in difficult or abusive surroundings

Bettes as Parents

  • * are often loyal, caring, involved, and devoted

  • * are sometimes overprotective

  • * can be demanding, controlling, and rigid
