A quick update on last week's post: Thank you for all of the recommendations. I bought a yellow bag this week! (I bought the last one in yellow, so I don't have a good pic link for you.) Looking forward to it's arrival,
hopefully this weekend. OMG, I just tracked it and it was already delivered, today! I felt safe ordering it, since I'll be able to take advantage of Zappos free return shipping if it doesn't work out. We should all shop together more often. ;)
On that note, I realized today, with a little shock, that my birthday is in two short weeks. Holy balls! (That's a Dude-ism, and a good'un, at that.) This is a near-emergency situation. I'm a total birthday princess/snob, so that means that I must have a new outfit for the occasion. Generally, this means a new dress and new shoes, at the very least. And often, finding the perfect dress means ordering something online - so many more options! So, if we're all keeping track here ... that means, including shipping time, I need to find something by Wednesday, to be safe. See? RED ALERT!!!
My birthday actually falls on a Sunday this year, which basically means I need a whole weekend's worth of birthday outfits. (No arguments, please. I already have a father.) I think Saturday evening I'll be doing dinner and other evening festivities with girlfriends, and then spend Sunday with The Dude. So far, I think I've got the Sunday outfit covered. Praying for warm weather, I'm planning to wear:
This dress ...
... with this belt, in tan ...
... and these shoes.
Probably just some dangly gold earrings and a chunky gold ring for accessories, as there's already a lot going on with the print. If the weather is really chilly, I suppose I'll add a boyfriend blazer. But I have hopes of sitting outside in the sunshine and sipping margs, so I'm really hoping it doesn't come to that.
By the way, the dress is an ebay find. I'm a huge (HUGE!) fan of ebay. I could waste hours and hours of a workday perusing ebay. (I said "could" ... just a hypothetical!) One minute, you're just looking for a great yellow bag, and the next minute, it's, "oh, maybe I should just see if there are any new Tory's listed ..." And before you know it, you've been sucked into the black hole.
As for a Saturday evening get-up, I haven't found anything I love online yet. So I'm guessing I'll be making a trip to the mall this weekend, hoping to find something great. If not, I have a couple of backups. I just don't feel like spending $158 on a dress I'll spill raspberry vodka on the first time I wear it ...
Hope y'all find a good reason to do some shopping this weekend! I'm definitely starting to catch the Spring shopping bug. Happy Friday!
