Last week I told myself I wasn't going to spend any money on myself until after Christmas (with the exception of the day after Thanksgiving sales, of course). but then i happened to go to a few stores...and i needed a few things...and they were on SALE!... So here's me modeling what I brought home.
On Friday, after bowling in Blaine, we stopped at the Kohl's. I was looking for a new black purse for the winter. I got a Nine & Co. purse, a wallet to go with it, a colorful clutch wallet (for concerts and such) and a cute sweater! all on sale. (i love my manikin pose.)
on Saturday, we (we being my mom, sister, and I) went to the "original" sewing and quilting expo at the convention center. I managed to not buy anything (although I did find the ONE booth with yarn and drooled over their baby alpaca yarn); mom resisted buying a $160 iron. so victory on that front. then we went down to the Local for lunch (i said "Screw the Points!" and ate a Reuben and fries) and wandered down Nicollet Mall just to see what there was to see. we went into the Saks 5th Ave Outlet and were tempted by some gorgeous cashmere sweaters, cute dresses, and tasty leather jackets. but instead we went across the street to Marshall's! they have Calvin Klein and Michael Kors too, so it's practically the same the same store. I scavenged the dresses and bought...
a grey and black cotton dress ($25!) and two pairs of tights! Yay for work clothes.
Then, back to the convention center for the Ski and Snowboard Expo. I decided a while ago I wanted to buy a new coat for skiing this year (as my current coat is a little big now). in the Hoigart's "store," I tried on a couple and the first one was my favorite!
