Weekend Window Shopping: Madewell is KILLING ME.

Ah, Madewell. It kills me. The new arrivals section is full of really great things that I desperately want to fill the "basics" holes in my closet. For instance, I don't even own a pair of black flats right now, can you believe that? Ahem:


These might be my perfect black flats. 


I also don't have a white blouse. This one is fun.


OMG. It's canvas and really well-priced. And camo!


A dressier version of my usual gold pendant necklace.


This beauty is one for Marianne's black floral dress list.


A nine-inch rise AND exposed copper buttons? Want. 


WANT WANT WANT WANT. 


This is just such a lovely thing and stars! 


This might be the year I finally get gold boots.

Sale Roundup: This and That.

It's been kind of a crazy week and I don't have an outfit or stuff I like for you. Bad blogger! I know. Instead I thought i'd do a quick roundup and let you know about some good sales and deals that I have been steadfastly avoiding.



Remember this great Aimee Kestenberg tote? TJ Maxx has marked it down again and now it's $49. Yep. Retail price was $268! Someone rescue that bag, please. There's also a black version for $48.


Also! Aerie is doing 7 for $29 on the unders again! My current favorite is the cotton boy brief:


I also like the seamless line though my specific favorite seems to be gone. 

And finally, J.Crew is offering 30% off of women's "need-now" styles for whatever that means. I guess I need this now? Or these:


Damn you, shopping ban. Damn you to hell.

BUY THIS: Marianne Really Loves Black Floral Dresses.

I'm calling this as the trend of late summer/early fall. I want a million of them! I'm in NO HURRY for summer to end, but these would be really cute with booties and a hat, right?



(This one is at TJMaxx in small sizes as well!)

Week Two: Things Marianne Didn't Buy In August.

M: I didn’t buy:




I did buy:
  • The Sound of Music on vinyl for the kids 
  • Measuring cups because the 1/3 cups are still MIA and I consider this an emergency. 
  • A raincoat for Lulu because whoops she didn’t have one and whoops she needed one. 

A: Those silver mules, man.

M: THEY BURN THE PRECIOUSSSSSS

A: You know how I feel about metallic shoes.

M: I’ve worn the crap out of my cheap Target silver flats this summer.

A: My silver Birkenstocks are my #1.


A: That isn’t a perfect sweater.

A: But I only say that because it’s H&M which never fits me.

M: Shut up no one asked you!

A: YOU ASKED ME

M: Hahaha

M: Well it fits meeeeee

A: HOW dO YOU KNOE

M: Don’t bring logic to this party.

A: You yelled at me for trying on the Target pants!

M: I feel like this dress is VERY Elio's Mom.

A: WHY ARE YOU LOOKING. But yes, it is!

M: FACEBOOK KEEPS SHOWING ME SHIT

A: Mmm hmm

Week Two: Things Adrien Didn't Buy In August.

Here is what I did NOT buy this past week:

  • THE PLAID PANTS (which are so good! SO GOOD. They'll be mine in September.) 



Here's what I did buy:

from Amazon:




From Dermstore (25% off with code BIRTHDAY):



These are all staples that I'm either running low on or completely out of so not cheating! I normally would have bought allllll kinds of crap with that discount code.

Coming up next: Marianne's Week Two list.

Weekend Window Shopping: Crawling Back To Everlane.

A quick note: I have created a new IG account for selling which will replace our defunct blog shop. It's mostly through Poshmark but we'll also occasionally post up stuff for direct sale like we used to.

NOW. I am going to make Marianne mad because, despite our resolution back in January, I have been  creeping on the Everlane site again to see what's new. Look, I know. They've broken our hearts repeatedly but like with a bad boyfriend, I keep coming back hoping for better. Because hey, this new cotton tee is exactly what I've been looking for:


Well, sort of. I've desperately wanted a long-sleeve version of the Cotton V-Neck to wear under my v-neck sweaters but this might be perfect for that! Or, it might just fall right off my shoulders. I won't know until next month but fingers crossed. Anyway, here's what I like:

We Discuss: Nostalgia Blindness.

A: Why. Why do I want these:


M: No

A: I want them


M: Nope

A: Target has a new line and it’s clearly Not For Me but I still want

M: They are trying to blind you with 90’s nostalgia

M: Plus your defenses are down because you’re not shopping

A: Oh my God what is this outfit:


M: wowwwwwww

A: And this one:


M: That t-shirt is SOMETHING

M: Also EVERYONE LOOKS BAD IN TINY SUNGLASSES

A: It’s like some stylist intern was confused about what people wore back in the olden days

M: See this is some kind of unholy clueless reality bites crossover that I find personally offensive

A: It’s really kind of insulting

M: It’s rude

A: The black colorway isn’t better:


A: This thing. With the fanny packs. Why is this a thing:


M: Listen we aren’t putting fanny packs on our boobs just no

A: OH BUT WE ARE. SO PROUDLY.


M: This is like the worst thing you can do to women with boobs

A: DO THEY NOT KNOW WHERE THEY GO


A: because

A: no

M: terrible

M: I applaud them for being size inclusive but why can’t you make the CLOTHES GOOD

A: Yes! I love that about Target but who is styling these ladies

M: A thin gay man

A: hahahaa

A: YOU ARE RIGHT

A: He’s also 24

M: right

M: He’s all YOU LOOK FIERCE HENNY

A: YAAAASSSS QUEEN

A: I still want those plaid pants. I’m sorry.

M: I don’t know why I have such dislike for them I am sorry

M: They are just very costume-y

A: They are very late 70s punk rock

M: right

A: Except they are Target and not Vivienne Westwood so I really should just move on

M: Meets Empire Records

A: Oh

A: sigh

M: sorrrrry

A: No no, it’s fine. I will add them to my list of things I didn't buy.

M: And a little Clueless AGAIN

A: OH GOD


M: yup

A: Nothing to see here

A: Move along, pls

M: Hehehe
