So I went on an online shopping spree yesterday. I had some work to do and in between gaps (times where I was waiting for processes to run while sitting in front of my computer), I shopped. Put me in front of a computer with time to spare and it’s a dangerous, dangerous thing. But – I hadn’t gone fall shopping yet (I know – so late!!) so figured now was a good a time as any.
The loot below is en route as we speak! This time I shopped at stores I don’t normally shop at so it’ll be interesting to see the fabric/fit/quality once they arrive. ‘Cause I’m adventurous like that. 🙂
Once you find your right size at a new store, it’s super-easy to shop online going forward. I have yet to return anything I’ve bought online. Tip – use their measurement charts – they’re there for a reason. 🙂
From Banana Republic:
Cute top - under a black cardigan in fall/winter and sleeveless in the warmer months. I love ruffles.
Fall trends: Tie-neck blouse and animal print (2 for 1!!)
From the Gap:
The only thing I’ve ever bought from the Gap previously were jeans… But they have some very cute stuff these days.
I got both the blouse and the sweater. Cozy.
From Old Navy (I love this store for basics/layering but found a couple of cuties this time):
Chiffon blouse will go perfect underneath my raspberry-coloured wrap cardigan from VS..
Who doesn't love a winter sweater? Picture it paired with jeans, a cami and a mug of hot chocolate. Need I say more?
I needed a pair of good, simple black pants. I got these (but in black). I like that Julianne Moore is the new face for Talbots and I saw her in a magazine ad so I checked out the site.
I also spent my egift card at VS (received for my bday – thanks Christina!!) but I won’t be posting my purchase details on the internet. 🙂
There are some other stores I’m curious about and will eventually buy from. Like White House Black Market – they have some great clothes for work. The reviews from other shoppers are on the site and are positive – that’s always a good sign. Club Monaco is another. I used to be a Reitmans fan back in the day (and they have a new online store now) but I lean more towards their sister stores Cassis and RW-Co lately – but those don’t have online shopping (yet!). And H&M is always good for trends (no online option). So, when I hit the mall I make sure to visit the stores with no online shopping option first. 🙂
You may have noticed that I have yet to buy a fall/winter 2011 bag. I’m still on the hunt…nothing has called out to me yet. what can you do?!
