Adrien: Weekend Shopping Report

I did a little shopping this weekend but mostly it was window shopping with some inappropriate touching thrown in. On Friday I wandered through Saks on my lunch break (DO NOT DO THIS) and my eyes lighted upon this beauty:

It's the Alexander McQueen padlock small shopper. Right? It's perfect. Perfectly-perfect cobalt color and such nice leather and the little padlock is a TINY SKULL and it has a TINY KEY THAT OPENS IT AND OMG. There was a McQueen scarf tied to one of the straps and when I quietly checked the bag's price tag I almost fell over with joy until a second later when I realized I was looking at the scarf's price tag. Then I had a tiny internal tantrum and skulked out of there to go drown my sorrows in an over-priced iced tea.

On Saturday Kate and I went to Nordstrom so we could check out the Frye Veronica Back Zip Short boots that are part of the anniversary sale going on now:

Kate liked them (and they looked great on her!) but said the zippers were really stiff. I think they'd be good for someone who finds the traditional Veronica short too wide in the leg.

I stocked up on my favorite Hanky Panky underwear (even though spending a bunch of money on underwear is maybe the least exciting purchase ever) because they really are worth the money and last for a long time if you don't put them in the dryer. And they come in fun prints and colors:

I also bought one of my favorite bras, the Natori jacquard bra, because it was part of the sale. Whee. Ugh. On our way out we wandered by the clothing section where we both stopped dead in front of this Vince Camuto Echo Wave Print Dress:

It's one of those things that doesn't translate as well in photos but in person it's REALLY CUTE. I might have to go back and try it on.

So, what did you buy last weekend?


  1. Have the dress and love it! Wore it to a wedding over the weekend and got loads of compliments. Every other dress these days feels so twee, I was thrilled to find something a little funky.

  2. Totally random question, but do you guys know if Nordstrom ever does coupon codes? There's a Kate Spade necklace I really love, but it's not quite on sale enough for me to buy it yet :( I can't find any codes online but am crossing my fingers for a birthday discount or something...

  3. I love Hanky Panky. The underwear, I mean. Oh, you know what I mean.
