Review: Taupe-Tied Booties

I love these booties!!! I tried them on at my local store once, and the fit was a little wide around ankle, but sole was TTS, so I ordered my normal size 8.

And the booties I got was brand new. Nobody ever worn them. And the fit was AWESOME! They weren't wide around ankle at all! Well, there are some space but not as much as the ones I tried at the store.

I went out wearing these today. Went to Anthropologie actually. I walked all day with them and didn't hurt my feet!!
mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm I love Miss Albright shoes!!






Today's pick at Anthropologie


I've been searching a pair of high-waist shorts, and this was it!
I wasn't sure until I tried them on, they run a size small, I got size 4 instead of my usual size 2 :)

THANK YOU LC!!!

O M G!!!

My daughter didn't have fever this morning, so I went to check out the sale while she was asleep (w her dada)

AAAAAAND


I asked a SA to check the current price for Soft Soaring Sweater, and it was only $19!!!!!!! (probably 19.95)

LC from bella seattle commented it on the last post, and O-MY!! THAT WAS TRUE!!!!!!!
Thank you sooooooooooo much for letting me know that, LC!! You are my GOD!!!

I am SO lucky!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!

And what did I get today??

I got these...




Little unusual for me, isn't it?? 

The skinny pants, I just wanted to make sure what size I should get if they get a 2nd cut... and I tried them on..

My thighs looked skinner than real ones!

I fell in love. They are worth $50 if they can make my legs look long and slim. I tried both color (stone and light blue) and I loved stone better! I didn't know my size, so I am not sure if it's TTS, but I am usualy 2 in skirt & dress, 2 or4 in pants, and I got 26 in these pants!
I highly recommend these pants!!!!!!  ★★★★★

And Tee, I was eyeing on it before, and I tried it on today. I loved the lace trim!! I didn't try the other color, but navy was my color, and I didn't even try the red one. Maybe next time, I should try the red one!
It fits TTS!


I will try to have a fashion show tomorrow morning if my daughter stays asleep :)

Oh, and the Salome Wedges $90 and Memory Keeper Drops $19.95 (was $38) are going back to the store.

The wedges are little tight around my ankle and they weren't as beautiful as I thought.
They are, but there are other shoes I want! And if they ever go on sale, I'd buy them in size 8.5, which is a half size larger than my normal size!

The earrings, meh.. They look cheap with the paper flower.. I almost wanted to take the flower off, but I guess I will just return them and get something else.


I used my birthday discount on those.. but I shopped more after the order and have more things I want to buy!! They should offer the discount whole birthday month!!



Ok.. off to bed now.


nite nite!

Pop-back purchases!!

Hello ladies! Happy Memorial Day! eh.. oh, is it next Monday?
My husband told me it's today. I totally believed it and thought it was a holiday today..

Anyways, last Tuesday wasn't a big fun for me. I was so excited and ready to spend $$ but the sale was .. bleh..


But guess what!? I have bought two pop-back items last week!!
I haven't received my Tuesday order yet, but I already received one of the pop-back purchases!!

Man, shipping is soooo expensive... I had to order those two separately because I found them in the different days. Shipping cost about 10 bucks each... But I think that online garments are way cleaner than in store, especially sale items, so maybe it's worth it? hmm..


Remember the Soft Soaring Sweater that I had it charge send but it never went through??


I suppose I was meant to have it!!

I found it in my wishlist, but it was still the 1st cut price and wasn't sure if I still wanted.
So I called 1-800 number and ordered it.
Phone orders takes a while to process, so if someone buy it while they are processing, my order will be canceled. That was a little gamble for me.  :P

Took about 24 hours until they sent me the confirmation mail!!

Uh-oh! I bought it. lol


It arrived today this afternoon.
It is beautiful and warm!! I don't love it at this point, but I am sure I will.

If it gets a 2nd cut tomorrow, or next week.. that would be fantastico! :) :)




Another pop-back item I purchased.. was the Thatch Palm Blazer in green.



It is still full price but under $100 for a jacket isn't that bad.
AAAAAAAAAND this beautiful green is killing me!!!
All sizes in green has been sold out but the other day I was browsing Anthropologie (well, I do that quite often), I saw a popback in my size!

I ordered it with the Fortunella Belt in turquoise.



I should have ordered the belt on Tuesday with my birthday discount... but that time, it wasn't in my shopping bag (lots of items that didn't make it to sale were in it!!)


I am pretty happy with the pop-back purchases and I am not so excited about tomorrow's sale.

If I could get PA from both of those, I might consider shopping more.. but most of the items that I have in my MUST HAVE wishlist are new items. 

I will start shopping my closet like Kim!! I NEED TO!!

Do you think I can sit back tomorrow's sale???
(My daughter has a fever, so maybe that could be another reason not to go to Anthro tomorrow!!)

really, really, really, BIG??


Finally, May 17th, Anthro Tag sale has arrived!!!

The sale was up last night around 11PM and I ordered most of the stuff I wanted from this sale online since I had my birthday discount code. (YES! I got both in store and online birthday discount!)

It was a bit disappointing.. Didn't seem like it was much bigger than normal sale..

and this morning, I received this in the mail.


not really..


but maybe, there are some great finds in stores?? Well, my local store is opening an hour early!! There must be something!!


.......


hmmmm....

I woke up early. I went to the store around 9:15am. There were some muffins, fruits, coffee... yeah that's really nice.. but... there wasn't anything so special about it.

I went through sale items but couldn't find anything that attracts me, so I started to look around the new items in the store. lol  (But I guess that's the main reason they have sales, right?)

I ended up getting the Sugar Work Skirt from sale (I got $80 back! The Finest Hour Heels went on sale today!)  and I left the store.


Sugar Work Skirt

These are what I ordered online.

 Memory Keeper Drops 

 Taupe-Tied Booties

 Salome Wedges

The Salome Wedges aren't even on sale but they look beautiful online and they aren't that expensive, plus I get 15%off from the order, so why not? :)



What did everyone get today? Are you happy with the Tag sale???
