Shopping is such an elusive activity to me. Pre-Doodle I used to love shopping....mostly by myself as a way to relax. Post-Doodle that last time I tried to shop and try a pair of pants on my little crazy man opened the dressing room door and attempted to run out of the store, I pretty much only shop online now. 

So when Molly and I discovered we had both gotten the same Living Social deal for Saks off 5th I got pretty excited. We met a couple of weeks ago (while Doodle was in school) and I actually got to sift through racks and racks of clothes, just like the old days. I do not take shopping is no spectator sport....I like the thrill of the hunt and it totally paid off that day. I scored a gorgeous gray wool Helmut Lang top that I've already worn 3 times since purchasing it. Also, I always like to be comfy while a pair of skinny jeans, sporty top and oxfords and boom, ya done. 

See ya Wednesday skrillas (PS get excited, I'm doing a piece on "How to Make Vintage Your Own")

  7. Would love to go on a shopping trip with you...if you ever visit SoCal we could do a lot of damage :) Love your "shopping uniform" cool, so sporty....kinda perfect since its back-to-school season. My shopping uniform tends to be leggings..that I way I can bypass the long dressing room lines and just slip the clothes over me in the middle of the aisle.....and any type of slip-on shoe, that way I can try on shoes with ease!!!!! The less time in the dressing room = more time shopping :)


  8. Love your comfy relaxed look! So sad I missed out on that Saks deal!
