Cleopatra style earings

Posted: March 23, 2014 in Shopping

My antique shop finding – a pair of Cleopatra-esque earings

I fell in love with those the moment I saw them. Not sure what stone it us, but the metal is 925 silver. I much admire the design and the unique look


J. Crew Aficionada

Last Sunday my wonderful husband took me to J. Crew to check out their spring arrivals. I vowed to myself not to shop during Lent but could not resist the temptation of 50% off. Here are my purchases:

And of course I found something for my boys as well. A baby blue polo shirt for my husband (unfortunately picture does not do it justice) and a pair of navy blue slacks for my son:

The scarves are very thin and flowy, the t-shirt just thin enough but not too thin to be uncomfortable, the shirt has just enough stretch in it, and the clutches look like I will get enough wear of them this spring and summer.
Overall a very successful shopping day.

Fluted skirts

Posted: March 1, 2014 in Uncategorized

Yesterday I stopped by Banana Republic during lunch. They are having 40% off sale on the entire purchase with very few exclusions.

I got a couple of fluted skirts, one gorgeous in black and whote stripes and the second one with metalic thread in it.

Normally I do not like anything shiny, but this skirt looked pretty nice and I blame giving in on pregnancy hormones:)

Both skirts are in size 0. I was going to get a 2 to be on the safe side, after I deliver but read those skirts run a little too large.
