Talbots Shopping

Several months ago, I won a rather significant gift card via a giveaway on Fashion Therapist's blog.
If you aren't familiar with her, you should go check out her site. She is one fashionable lady.

When I won the gift card, I was pregnant so I wasn't able to properly spend the money. I did scratch my shopping itch mid pregnancy by ordering two items from a super clearance section of the Talbots website.

I purchased a button down shirt and a terry dress. Both of these items were pretty basic but they filled a need in my closet (really they scratched the shopping itch. I have yet to wear them, although I have yet to return to most of my weardrobe post pregnancy. The fit is almost there, but I don't want to wreck anything.)

Last weekend, I decided it was time to look into spending my gift card. I looked up the nearest store and headed there with my husband and little girl. (Her FIRST trip to the mall... WAHOO!!!)

After wandering the store to get back into the shopping swing, I took a few items into the dressing room. I must admit, nothing was fitting the way I wanted it to. After a little bit more wandering, I took a few more items into the dressing room.

I selected two sweaters with my money.

Both sweaters are SUPER comfortable and I can't wait to have a reason to wear them out.

There was also a belt and a sequin tank that were in the running.

I could have sworn this belt came in black... maybe? And OH the LOVE for this tank top... I WANTED this BAD.

I was interested in seeing more of their purses and boots. I was disappointed with what was on hand in the store. I may have gone the boot route if they had them in store to try on.

I had my eye on a skirt... oh the bling... but I knew I had no place to wear it.

Thanks for the gift card Talbots and Fashion Therapist!!!!
