Off 5th

I'm sitting in my office at work and I can hardly contain myself. I just discovered that in my town resides a Saks Off 5th! For those who think I'm speaking French right now, Saks Off 5th is a discounted Saks Fifth Avenue store! You get the designer label at less than designer prices. It's where Saks Fifth Avenue drops off its out-of-season products to make room for the new (expensive) stuff. It makes no nevermind to me if it's in season or out; I'm there... Designer clothes, bags, shoes oh my! They also have designer items for your man and kids; even your home according to the website. All I know is that over the winter I was eyeing a $250 pair of Anne Klein brown booties that I never pulled the trigger on, and now they are discounted at Off 5th! I'm also excited about the rows and rows and rows of sunglasses that are there. I am never one to pay top dollar for shades especially when the "cheap" ones have UV eye protection just the same, but at these prices I must repeat myself - I'm there! If you're a sucker for designer jeans like Rock and Republic or True Religion but don't want to pay marked-up prices, this place is for you. I hear they have mad shelves of them. Me? I'm a sucka for handbags, so I am interested to see which designers they carry and how reduced they'll be. God, hopefully I exercise some self control.

April showers bring more shopping

In an earlier post I mentioned spotting a cute little trench at H&M but letting it pass me by. I have no regrets about that, however I just opened my April issue of Lucky magazine and the trench on display kicked me in the face. Partly because I'm a label whore, the other part is that this Kenneth Cole Reaction trench is listed at only $128. Sounds like a steal to me. It lead me to go on a little trench online search. There are so many to choose from and at many price points. This Kenneth Cole one really caught my eye so I'm off to Nordstorms to check it out.

The young and the (please) suckless

God could these soap operas be any more terrible? I'm sitting here catching up on a week's worth of the daytime drama, only to continue to be disappointed from the lack of. I thought the writers' strike was over. If they think this is titillating drama they are sadly mistaken. The loyal trait in me forces me to continue to watch these dreadful soaps, but there comes a time when frustration kicks in right? But I just sit here wasting 5 hours of time all while rolling my eyes and hitting the timer to see how much is left of this vile episode.

I like boys who wear Abercrombie and Fitch

Dang it why does Abercrombie have no inventory down here. I went to the mall all ready to spend a week's pay at Abercrombie only to be madly disappointed. As I walked around and around desperate to find something in there to purchased, I asked myself how long before I give up? I mean the only things in there are rows and rows of jeans, like I need anymore jeans, and racks and racks of zip-up fleece. I just wanted to purchase come cute tops, casual pants, tees, anything?! Well I settled for a couple of long sleeve tees, that if I'm being honest look like I'm headed for bed, but cute enough for my dollars nonetheless. Anyway I had to get outta there, my ears were starting to bleed from the insanely loud music. Don't get me wrong, I still love Abercrombie. I'll head back from time-to-time hoping the inventory in this location improves. I know what you're thinking, and so what if their target clientele is in preschool, a girl can pretend.

Victoria's what?

Someone please buy me this dress from Victoria's Secret. It's strapless and only comes in navy, which is the perfect color for this knee length striped cotton blend. Pleated at the waist and hip with trendy front pockets. I must have it.

Day 26

Crappy name, but whatever. Diddy's boy band released their highly anticipated debut CD last week. I've been a crazy fan of the reality show Making the Band, but was not too impressed with the product. My sisters picked up the CD and they both say they like it. I've listened to a few songs from their myspace page, but hardly enough data to make a decision. Who has heard any of the songs or has purchased the CD? Worth it?
