It feels so good to be back in the blogging world. I went through some major withdrawal last week when I was visiting my family. I wanted to make sure I wasn't glued to my computer blogging instead of spending time with my parents, brothers and sisters and my adorable nieces and nephews. I did manage however to score some INSANE deals!
Top: Ann Taylor (factory) shell in ivory- size XXSP
Skirt: Theory Francia Dialogue skirt- size 00
Necklace: Banana Republic factory
I probably didn't need any more shells but I figured I needed something a bit different than all the famous Ann Taylor ruffle front chiffon and the petal front shells I keep wearing and rotating all the time. The fit is perfect for me. The armholes are just right and fits nicely in the chest and waist area. Here are all the colors of my new shells:
This full needle cardigan in lilac I found in-store and was on sale from
$69.50 marked down to $26.99 plus 25% off $20.24 plus an additional 15% off (coupon) = $17.20
I also picked it up in soft grey as well. No other colors were available. I find it quite annoying that it's not as cheap online because I would like to know how the XXSP fits. They don't carry that in-store. But I do have to say the XSP fits quite perfectly (similar fit to my fav LOFT long cardigan). If you are smaller than me, the XXSP should fit you really nicely. Has anyone tried the XXSP? I have this sweater in oatmeal and XSP from last year and it's now all pilly and beaten to death. The fit is very small even smaller than the whipstitch cardigans in XXSP which I have in all 3 colors.
Here is a close-up of my BR factory necklace I just got. I love it and it was on clearance for
$12.99 plus 40% off = $5.20 I have already worn it twice already:)
This skirt was my biggest score EVER in the history of ReallyPetite.com! This Theory skirt, I blogged about back in the winter when Bloomingdales had their sale and even then it was still expensive. This was hanging at a Macy's in the midwest marked down from
$225, to $122.50 and I was contemplating getting it at that price. I even tweeted about it before actually scanning it. When the price popped up as $49.99, I about lost my mind! Plus my sister had a $20 off coupon for purchases of $50 so I had to buy a bottled water to get the final price to be $30! The pockets have leather and I didn't think I could pull it off but you can hardly tell and the fit is pretty nice! The waist is not snug but just perfect on me and the length requires NO alterations! Another major win!! I would love a matching Dialogue blazer to go with it- hopefully next season:)
So to recap this outfit: (minus shoes and belt)
Grand total = $74.89
I have so many more great stuff but it will have to wait until future posts! Too many goodies to cram into one post:) Oh and since I have reached over 1000 followers, I will be doing a giveaway to celebrate so stay tuned....!!
What are your thoughts on my deals?
