Anyway, here's what I picked up yesterday:
From Forever 21 (which turned out to be like a discount store, like F21 isn't already cheap enough)
cause i never have enough basic tees and at $6 you can't go wrong
when this one was entered into the computer it came up at $1.99 :-)
From American Apparel:
Acrylic snake tunic - a cute basic sweater with fun batwing sleeves
odd that these sweatpants were about $10 more expensive than the ones above and these are just basic sweatpants. but they are super soft and cozy and I'm wearing them now. *sigh*
i was wandering around at The Gap and my husband came over with this little bomber jacket (which i can't find on the site). the interior is ALL SHERPA. this is going to be worn all winter i can tell you that with absolute certainty. i wore it this morning as a little jacket out to breakie and OMG it's so warm and snuggly. good job hubby!
I am FINALLY the proud owner of a decent winter coat. I have wanted a North Face 3/4 length coat for several years and never broke down and spent the $400 or whatever on it. In the past I've hated spending lots of money on stuff for winter because I hate winter and everything that goes along with it but lately, maybe because I'm getting old, I have decided while I am living in the goddamn arctic, I am just going to have to embrace the hell that is a Canadian winter and DEAL. So I didn't buy a North Face coat (although I did try one on)....I went all out and bought a Canada Goose coat. I justified it by saying I walk to work everyday and need something to keep me from ending up frozen in a snowbank between Little Italy and downtown. I did find out it comes with a 25 year warranty so OMG this is the last winter coat I will be buying for a VERY long time. YES!!!
(this is crazy, but the salesperson told me to be careful - that there is a black market out there for Canada Goose jackets, and that I should write down the serial number on the inside tag and make sure when it comes back from the cleaners that the same freaking number is inside. OMG)
