worthy cause

I'm poor now.. So I had to find some way to pay for my new Lanvin bag (which I am not using yet). And like any other industrious, designer-addicted, I-need-to-buy-it-because-it's-such-a-good-deal kinda girl, I'm selling stuff on Ebay!

You know you've been coveting these gorgeous Lanvin shoes that I am really sad to part with:

And you totally want these Missoni sandals:

decisions, decisions

I've always liked the Lanvin Kansas Tote and now it's on sale at Barneys for 40% off! Do I keep the Jimmy Choo or should I get the Lanvin? Jimmy is only slightly cheaper than the Lanvin.. Then again, I'd have to pay tax on the Lanvin. Phooey!

I've been dreaming of a black leather bag for so long and now all of them are on sale! Why oh why are you torturing me? Why can't I just be richbitch and not lookrichbitch? Where's the fun in that?
UPDATE: I bought the Lanvin. I went to Barney's when they opened and bought it! It was the last one! I better return the Jimmy Choo when it arrives. D'oh!

moment of weakness

Now I think I'm going to throw up because I just ordered a Jimmy Choo bag! It's on sale at Bergdork (typo but I kinda like it!) It kinda reminds me of the Ramona bag but smaller and way less expensive. This one is $988 from $1475. Woohoo! It's black and it's under $1K!

This is the Chloe that I was holding around the other day. I'm totally over it now. Hahaha. Hey! I'm a girl! I was born to be fickle. Besides it's a bit too tall and quite pricey.

Does that mean I can't buy another bag in January when I go to Europe? Of course not! Buying a bag there would be considered as buying a souvenir and you can't go on vacation without buying souvenirs, right?

Anyway, Bergdorf and Neimans both started their designer sales today. (If you live where I live, you should order from Bergdorf, if you can.. Neimans charges tax!) Now go spend some money so I don't feel quite so guilty.

i'll shop vicariously through you!

Puella has these fun Grab Bags that go for $150 and they include 10 random pieces from their current season. I haven't actually purchased a bag yet, but have always been tempted. Hehehe. They're not always in stock but you can ask them to email you when they have them again. (Sorry the coupon looks ghetto.)

Word on street is the Ralph Lauren has a 30% discount if you use the code HOL2006 when you check out. I'm not 100% about the code.. Maybe it's HOL2007. It's supposed to be valid through Dec. 4, 2007. Good luck! has a ton of great discounts listed too.
Click here!

Alas, I didn't buy the Chloe bag... I went to Nordstrom right after work to look at the sale bags. I actually found a tote-style bag in the color that I wanted. I carried it around for about twenty minutes - I even called a couple people for moral support. *sigh* I then found a lovely Christian Louboutin clutch on sale. So I carried that around and looked at myself in the mirror and imagined all the glamorous parties and events I could take it to.. And then I put them both down and walked out of the store with my shoulders slumped in defeat as I threw up a little bit in my mouth for being strong.

Here's the clutch:

Dammit. If I find either of those bags at 60% off, I'm buying it. Eff being strong - so what if I won't have any money to put in the bag? I'll be cute and poor.

come home

This is the Chloe back that I'd be drooling over for the longest time. I really want the black one, but of course only the ivory one is one sale for 40% off. Oh me oh my... What do I do??

Right brain: I really want a new bag!

Left brain: But I really want a BLACK bag..

RB: But this one is on sale!

LB: But it's not exactly the one I want..

RB: But it's ON SALE!

LB: I know, I know..

I'll let the brains duke it out for a couple hours.. Maybe the bag will be sold by the time I get to Nordstrom. Other Chloes are on sale now too!

friends with benefits

t, Sorry this is a bit hard to read! I'm not really good at this yet! But if you scroll to the bottom you'll see that you can get a free one-year subscription to Lucky Magazine if you make a purchase of $25 or more and use the code "LUCKYMAG".

Want a closer look?

And here's a 20% F&F discount at Kiehl's. Again hard to read but the code is "FRIDAY" and it's good from Nov. 23-26.

resistance is futile

I just got an email from a salesgal at the Bellevue Nordstrom and she said there will be markdowns on Chloe, Marc Jacobs, Hogan "and many other designer handbags"! Eep! I might need to check it out. Usually their bags start at 33% off, sometimes if you're lucky, they're 40% off. Fingers crossed!

Here's the top that I bought at Target yesterday...

And here is the little jacket that someone else should buy (just because it's really cute..)

Sunday, November 18, 2007


I don't know why I'm so addicted to Target's GO International-especially with sickly sweet Erin Fetherston designing. I mean, I actually woke up early to go to Target to see heart shaped bags and ruffly dresses! Alas, I have one more confession... I went to TWO Targets just in case there was something I missed. OH THE SHAME! (Just a side note, the Target in Factoria did not have any EF stuff out yet - which means that yes, I started by driving all the way down to the gloriously, magical Target in Renton!)

I tried on that ebony bow jacket. It's actually really cute, but the other stuff, they're a little too cute if you know what I mean. Seriously? Bunnies. No thanks. I ended up buying just the black tee with the faux bow. I didn't really like the bow but the top is surprisingly flattering as it hides my juiciness.

And then what do I do as soon as I get home? I hit up! There were a bunch of items that weren't available at the store and next thing you know I have 4 items in my shopping cart! Honestly, the quality of the garments are questionable but I think I just like the idea of having them in my closet - as if they're going to be worth something in the future. HA! But I was good, I didn't "check out" and those items remain in shopping cart limbo. (By the way, did you know you can get 5 miles/$1 spent at on Northwest Airlines? You just link to through and of course you have to be signed up for mileage too!)

I think the Loeffler Randall stuff comes out in January. I'm sorta looking forward to it even though the pix I've seen aren't that appealing. I think it's partly because I was obsessing over a Loeffler bag for a hot one. Then I realized that it was still $700+ and if I actually had that moola, I should probably save for a little longer and buy a real designer bag, like a delicious Balenciaga or a this-is-why-I-live-at-home Chanel. Do you even know where I'm going with this? Just a couple more months and I'll be in Paris. Ooh la la!

I'm shy...

But I hide it by talking a lot.

Have you been to the Barney's sale yet? It was ok. I was hoping this 3.1 Phillip Lim dress would be on sale but it wasn't. The salesgal said it was a progressive sale though and that they'd be adding more stuff and marking things down even more through January. I only work a couple blocks away so I plan to take Barneys-breaks every so often to check on the dress.

I did however buy this Marc by Marc Jacobs cardigan. It's really cute. 100% wool and not itchy at all. I hate itchy. And it has these neat little darts on the bottom of the back side that make the sweater kinda cup my booty.. Or maybe I just have a huge booty. Either way, I find it rather comforting. Hold me...

Anyhoo, I'm personally not crazy about Kinerase stuff, but I am crazy about free:
