I Want to go Shopping for . . . .

Hi!

Yesterday I did some unplanned things...including seeing lots and lots of fireworks...so I unintentionally took the day off from blogging.  But while I was out, I went in one of my favorite clothing stores - The Limited - and picked up a couple of new tops.  And now today, I'm back on their website and I've seen a few more things I like so I thought I would share those.

First is a cute cardigan/fly-away sweater:
Slub Cocoon Cardigan
I think this would make a nice addition to my fall wardrobe since all of my sweaters kind of like this are dark.  It comes in 2 colors (white & oatmeal) for about $55.  I'm not sure whether I would look better in white or in oatmeal so I would have to go back to the store and try them on to decide.

Next is a cute top:
Draped & Pleated Top
I think that I saw this in store and I was curious what it looked like, but they had it up beyond my reach and all the workers were no where around (why stores put things up high where people can't reach is beyond me).  This top is around $35.  It has more of a pattern to it than I currently have in my wardrobe, so once again, I would have to try it on to see if I liked it or if the pattern is too much for my height.

And finally, a purse:
Houndstooth Pocket Tote
Now, I really like the pattern of this BUT it is WAY to big for it to be proportional to my height.  For $70, I'll pass on this one.  Maybe at some other store I might find a purse with the pattern in a more ideal proportion.  Plus, with this purse only having 3-inch handles, I wouldn't be able to carry it on my shoulder like how I prefer to carry my purse.

So, there's some items that have caught my eye recently.  I'll probably end up back there soon to look at the sweater and top, and I might pick up a couple more of the tees that I got while they are still on sale.

What's caught your eye recently for wardrobe updates?  When shopping, do you look for more trendy clothing items for less cost or are you more attracted to staple/investment items and then play with unique/trendy accessories?
