    ^ Funny ... so I guess it's not one of a kind then? I guess you're still not at all likely to see it coming and going ...


    My ivory Patagonia jacket I have now seen on two other people, including a friend ... I think that's a record for me!

    Just ordered a few things on piperlime... impulse buy on this Pom Pom athletic top.

    And have also been attempting to find shoes for my upcoming wedding. Was hoping the shoes could be my "something blue" and these two pairs – pumps by Marc Jacobs and sandals by Loeffler Randall – seem like they could potentially be contenders. I'm looking for something that I'll want to wear again post-wedding.

    We'll see! :blush:

    i like the flowered ones chrissy!
    nice bag kenysha...
    :mowhawk:

    i broke down and got three cashmere knit scarves from the men's dept at club monaco..
    i just couldn't resist the sale price...
    it's the same scarf i bought and returned earlier in the season...
    made in china...:doh:...
    but the low price meant that i didn't have to choose a color and could get all three...
    black, grey and a heathered dusty olive (the one i really couldn't stop thinking about)...

    so - yeah - i'm weak...
    :ninja:...:blush:...:innocent:...

    ^ :blush:...:lol:...
    it's big, it's true...and it does spill out onto multiple racks as well...
    but i really do wear most of it...i rotate things frequently...

    thanks- their men's scarves are sooo much better than their women's...
    bigger and thicker...AND cheaper...so crazy!
    i didn't post a pic cause you can't really tell anything from the images...
    the green is such a good green though...very unique...

    this is the other scarf i got this season...
    another thing that just doesn't translate photographically...
    they call it an eco pebble scarf...
    eco is because it's organic wool and pebble refers to the type of knit (the texture)...
    it's undyed alpaca (very warm) and sort of bumpy...
    grey/black...
    the look of tweed, the ease of knit...
    looks great with everything...!!!
    in terms of cost per wear, this one is a winner...

    i wear it like crazy and am absolutely shocked by how many compliments i get on it from both men and women...
    it's sold out now...
    i'm not surprised...
    :lol:...

    my mom went to the gap and bought me these two items. normally i'd tell her not to bother as gap stuff isn't very warm.

    the sweater dress actually looks more expensive than it is.

    So many beautifult things! The dress and sweater looks great, Lucy92! I love that kind of pattern in knit sweaters. And I can see why you get so many compliments for the scarf, Softgrey! It is a very interesting scarf indeed!

    i've been craving houndstooth for ages now...
    found this on super sale...just ordered it...
    buttons are in just the right place and the pattern is matched beautifully at the pockets...
    thinking this will be great...
    better be- it's not returnable...
    :doh:...:lol:...

    also got this padded denim.wool mix indigo jkt w. silk lining- japanese fabric...
    another item i had been craving...(never liked the isabel marant version- too bulky) and another steal...

    :D

    aritzia
    since my friend works for the company- she has relationships with the factories so i know they are good, even though it's china...ha!
