Tote - B. Makowsky

For dinner, I changed the blouse to a tee and the skirt into jeans. :-)

And here is another one-hit wonder:

Wednesday in Purple

Purple is really one of my favorite colors, but it feels like a late season color - fall and winter ish....so I though I would remedy that with bit more purple. Haha Ok, with lavender. Did it work?

This scarf is pretty cute, its two sided so you see some petals and some plaid. So you guys saw that the Talbot's Red Hanger sale has started??? Exciting times!....I have scouted some things, but will probably be waiting for the next round of markdowns.

Placed Petal Tee - Loft $10
Stretch Sateen Jacket - Speigel $30 (after coupons)
Scarf - Talbots $10 (during extra 25% off and coupon)

Tuesday in Bloom

Hey all, here is the second outfit try with the blue pencil skirt from Talbots. :-) I like this skirt quite a bit. It makes me wish JCrew made skirts in my size, they always have such interesting and colorful pencil skirts that are not in my size. :-/

"Our Signature Floral Pencil Skirt" Talbots $47. Sold out online.
Belted Utility Jacket in Oregano - Gap $16 in store ($25 online, also in Khaki and Denim)
Denim Shirt - New York and Company $7

Monday Again

Yes, another Monday. Well, this one is a great Monday for once, because darling hubby returns from another trip tonight (yay). He was gone long enough to send postcards this time. :-/ haha

I have been having a rough time at work for a couple of days - on a single reporting project. Its trying to break me, but it doesn't know me well LOL.

Anyways, as mentioned hubby is away, my outfits seem to be less creative when he is out of town. I think our life is just all out of whack when he's not here, so maybe I don't have the time of energy to come up with fun things.

Red Cardigan Sweater - Talbots$17 (Feb 09)
Black Ponte Knit Skirt - Chadwicks $15 (Fall 09)
White no-see through tee - Target $10 (Sold out online, still instores)

As always, thanks for reading!!

Inbox Roundup

Here are a few things from my inbox, I will do some more digging later today....

Martin and Osa - 50% off your purchase, discount is applied automatically in cart. There are no exchanges or refunds.

Loft - still has 40% off clearance. If you have a local store, they are running $15 off $75 with this coupon, which at my store can be combined with the 40% off clearance. YMMV.

NY and CO
has everything on sale starting at $6.00 - Lots of it is in the $12-$15 range.

This is $14.99, and could be great for pool / beach wear or as a coverup. (Or as a blouse :-p)

This is $7.99

The Limited
has a bunch of new clearance as well. Try adding coupon code 405 for an additional 15% off.

This, and other tees are $6.99

The GAP has their summer sale going on. I-nstores and online, take an additional 20% off this weekend with GAP20 and free shipping at $100.00

This cute skirt is $14.99 in petite and tall, and regular up to size 20.

Talbots - buy one sale item, get the second for 50% off. Discount appears in shopping bag. This is probably the start of the red hanger season. Good to buy now if you are afraid your size might run out, but probably by the first week in July we will be seeing some really major markdowns.

QVC - Early purchase for the Sat TSV - B. Makowski tote in 2 sizes, 5 colors. Also has Evil Pay, if you like.

Saturday Lounging

Hey all, hope your weekend was great. Here is what I wore on Sat.

Tank - Loft $18
Ruched Waistband Jacket - Loft $48
Shorts - Chadwicks $?? Old, and they were cheap, but cannot remember $$.

Sorry its a little blurry, but I used the MAC Amber Lights for this eye. There is MAC Showstopper on the outside edge and a MAC rust color in the crease. :-)

Yeah, ok, don't love it.

So I bought this sweater, and I didn't like it the first time I wore it, and I am not a fan now. :-/ I am mostly irritated with myself because I didn't love it in the dressing room and bought it anyways. I knew it was too long and not proportioned right for my size, but I really wanted the style in my head. Boo. Bad Bianca.

On a better note, I love this sleeveless blouse! I should have taken my photos without the sweater LOL!

Cardigan made for a taller / longer waisted person - Loft $17
Beautiful sleeveless blouse - Loft $14.99
Black Denim Skirt - Chadwicks $15

Love Talbots!!

Ok, soooooo here is my first attempt at dressing the super cute Talbot's skirt. You gotta love something fresh out of tags. :-) I do love this skirt, I got it in a 16W but the regular 16, 18, 16WP, or 14W all would have worked as well, just the fit was a little different for each, this was the longest of length.

Floral Bouquet Skirt - Talbots $38
Green Cardigan - Talbots (free after Classis Awards Dividend)
Ivory Tee - Loft $20
Belt - New York and Co $.99

Side Note: Christina /la Changa, your comments aren't working anymore, I think it happened right after the baby shower post. ;-)

Tuesday Wear

How was everyone's weekend? Do you know my daughter's school was in session yesterday? Instead of extending the school year, they attempt to make up for snow days on holidays. It seems pointless - why would someone send their kids to school on a holiday? And if the point is to make up a snow day, why do it on a day no one will send their kids to school? It all makes little sense to me. :-/ Ha.

So I did happen to make it to the Loft sale this weekend (of course) and found a couple of things (of course). My hubby picked out the top.... I would not have looked twice at it, but it was his pick so, I tried it on, and loved it. Its super pretty. I wish it photographed better!! I put the Loft photo at the bottom, since you can see the top better in it.

I got the XL in this one, did not try the large. The jacket is also an XL - often with jackets at the Loft I can go either L or XL depending on how I want it to fit. I really needed the XL on this one.

The Stuff
Silk Blouse with Dropped Waist - Loft $32.00
Ruched Waistband Jacket - Loft $47.00
Denim Pencil Skirt - Loft $25 (summer 08)
libby edelman espadrille wedges - Belk Dept. Store

These are some new shoes I got. I know there is some rule about short people and ankle straps. But, I love these shoes!! The polish is "Don't be koi with me" by OPI.

As always, thanks for reading!!
