Friday Fancies

In just a few hours, I am embarking on the 2011 Annual Ladies’ Shopping Trip with the women in Cory’s family. (We don’t really name the trip, but I did for the purposes of this post). This is some serious shopping. We stay in a hotel, get up early to head to the malls so we’re there when the stores open, and we shop until we literally are too exhausted to continue. I am so excited for some much needed retail therapy. By some miracle, I managed to meet all my law school-related deadlines for the week, so I think I deserve to buy myself something (er, lots of somethings) nice. Here is my shopping list for the weekend:

{Bracelets to create the ultimate bracelet stack, a la Tina @ Fashion Dynamite.}


{Nude flats to replace the Nine West ones that I’ve practically worn to death, but love too much to part with until I find the perfect replacement}


{An LLD- Little Lace Dress- Perfect for the holidays! I love this one from Asos, but I’m still undecided as to whether I want my LLD to be black, cream, or navy}


{A serious statement necklace…or three. I want the one above, from Kate Spade, but first I want to find some more budget-friendly options so I can make sure that I’ll actually wear the necklaces before splurging on such a fancy one.


{Cateye Sunnies. There is something about the shape of cateyes that feels so feminine and classic-glamourous to me. I have no idea if these will flatter my face shape or make me look like a bug, but, this weekend, I’m going to find out. }
{A 100% cashmere travel wrap. This will be my first real piece of 100% cashmere. Real cashmere = expensive, but I live in freezing/snowy NE Ohio so…I think it’s worth it. I want one from White+Warren, but I think I’m going to try finding one from TJ Maxx first (in red), and then I’ll save up for a gray one from White+Warren.}

    Haha, yep! This is only my third time going, but they take it pretty seriously! We go to an area that has several big malls/shopping centers, and we spend all day Saturday and Sunday shopping. It’s exhausting, but so fun! And after Thanksgiving sales are the best. I love Black Friday!
