Closet Notes

I've been on vacation for a little while...Mom's been in town, and haven't had too much time to post, so here's a few small fashionable notes from the past week...

Some good things...(How very Martha Stewart of me...)

So I wasn't able to come across Chanel's Jade Nail polish, but instead found Orly's "Green With Envy"

And I must admit I'm on day 6 with no chips so far...I love it when a pedicure lasts! It makes every moment of pampering last even longer.

I also had the opportunity to do some thrifting with my friend E. who is always really honest about how something looks or if it's worth the price. I was super happy to come across this jacket at Salvation Army and it was 1/2 price day!

The sleeves have a slight puff at the shoulders and it's exactly what I've been looking for to go with a beautiful nude lace skirt that I've never worn...A later post.

And now some boo hoo-

I went to the Nordstrom Rack opening, stood in line for an hour and a half in the rain, purchased 2 dresses without trying them on and both of them were horrible on me! I looked like a big blue rectangle in one of them and the second one...well let's just say I didn't have enough to fill it out in the right places. When I went back to exchange them for something that did fit, I came up empty handed! I guess it made my pocketbook happy!

Boo hoo #2-
My boots have not yet arrived! I found out upon calling customer service that there happens to be a postal strike going on and it could still be another week or 2. By that time, winter in Texas will practically be over! Ok, that's an exaggeration. It's just that it took me so long to make up my mind...oh never mind...we all know how it is to be waiting for something you've ordered. It's like it will never come! But they will...(hurry, hurry!)

Enough of my obsessive rambling for now.

pretty nail polish...I write for that site a bit and I used to write for The Fashion Spot, but I work in fashion PR full time so I don't freelance as much as I'd like xo

I stuck my head in on opening day at the Rack, dashed through and left in a hurry. I'll go back when it's less insane. I was disappointed in the shoe selection, however.

Oh no, I hate it when that happens - how can something that looks so good on a hanger mutate when on! The UK postal strike is a total nightmare, a lot of store are now chooseing to use independant curriers. I've got two parcels still waiting to appear ;-( and nobody even knows what they are striking for!!! Hope the boots show up soon!
