I really like the school boy blazer look with jeans. It looks like a Jcrew catalog. Speaking of Jcrew, here is their version. I think I am going to hold out until the fall. (pic from cupcakes and cashmere)
I want to get a couple of these Muji reusable pump bottles for my shampoo and conditioner. (Muji (with 3 locations in NYC) is like the Japanese version of Ikea/container store.) In effort to reduce my waste and save money, I purchase my shampoo and conditioner in gallon sizes. And it is convenient...a gallon of each will last me for almost 2 years.
Last summer, I cleaned out my closet and got rid of a gap denim dress that was over 7 years old. My husband called me Becky, as in Becky from "Full House," whenever I wore the dress. Since this purge, I miss the denim dress and have been looking for a replacement. I originally ordered the 1st dress below from Anthropologie, but it didn't fit my body type. The top was too big in the M and the S was a little tight in the bottom. I am thinking that the 2nd dress might be the one. It is from Isaac Mizrahi's new line as creative director for Liz Claiborne.
My quest to find a perfect trench coat was reached on Saturday. It all started when my brother-in-law's wife went into labor and I needed to stay busy in order to stop worrying. I decided to walk to Jcrew. I entered 900 N Michigan Ave through the Bloomingdale's shoe department and headed straight for the sale section. I tried on a pair of nude heels for 40% off. The clerk asked me if I wanted to save an additional 20% if I picked them up on Wednesday. I, of course, said yes. (they were doing a pre-sale - which means you pick it out and then they set is aside for you to come and pick up on the day of the sale)
And I need to mention that Luke Michael and his mom are doing excellent.
He was born on 4/18/09 at 4:36 pm.
8 pounds 3 ounces and 21.5 inches
After visiting Luke, my husband and I celebrated the birth by having nachos and beer at Rock Bottom.
We then walked home in the first warm night of the spring.
