So this is the haul in it's entirety, it might not look like a lot (or maybe it looks like an obscene amount) but it took me for.freaking.ever just to get the tags off everything. Speaking of which, when did we decide we needed to weave the tags thru the seams in such a way as to make them annoying. And why do we need more than one tag and maybe a sticker on two on clothing? Let's just knock it off already with the stickers and finicky tags.
I now realize I could have done a much better job showing you what I bought, but it's too late for all that. I've since washed & put everything away so this will have to do. I apologize that this isn't easier to see!
I did take some close ups of a few of my favourite things. I don't know what it is with Americans and baby blue sweaters but these were both marked down & down & down until I got them for literally next to nothing. No one likes baby blue? The one on the left was $5 and the one on the right, which has kind of a ruffled silky seam on the front, was $2.50. *gasps* How could I not buy them. Plus this Canadian girl loves this color, so I was thrilled. I mean, come on!
This next picture makes me smile just looking at it. These are the Mossimo t-shirts from Target (Tarjay) that I LOVE LOVE LOVE. If you don't have one of these t-shirts, run to your nearest Target *if you have a nearest Target I'm officially envious* and get yourself one or seven. These were $5 each and are the softest thing ever. It's a thin t-shirt that looks and feels like you've washed it a million times. I have one that has lasted well over 5 years now and has held up great, so I'm hoping these will too. But even if they don't, they are only $5! I only got two of them and now I'm wondering what the heck I was thinking.
I walk into Target and I get overwhelmed. I'm so excited to be there and everything looks like something I want/need that I can't think straight.
Like these crates...we bought 3 of these ( I also got one from Wal-mart) They were so handy for packing up all our purchases & I just am positive I needed them all. They come in great colors too!
And this purse...it was only $5. How could I leave it there. It is one of those slouchy bags but with some good compartments inside that would make a good work bag or just kicking around bag.
Another favourite store is Kohls, but I actually hit that one on our last day and was almost shopped out by this point. Terrible mistake I won't make again. I was kind of over trying anything on but I did get one of my blue cardigans there. I also got some great shirts for Mr. J, who was so over shopping by this time that he was back at the hotel. One of my other favourite buys from Kohls was this ring.
It's one of those great oversize rings that I love and I already know where I'm first going to wear it. Love!
Other than that I bought a few of those silky banded blousy shirts at Macys, and a couple of pairs of work pants, some capris, some sweater sets and some pajamas - including a soft, soft nightshirt with martini glasses all over it. Speaking of which have any of you tried this before?
And finally I love going through grocery stores and buying treats *read junk* we don't have at home. These are things that I may or may not even buy if we had them here, but are so alluring to me because I can't get them readily. Which applies to pretty much everything in life doesn't it.
Believe me...there was more but it just gets a little ridiculous. Oh and I know I can get club soda here but those little bottles they come in make me feel like I'm in the movies or something.
I'll be back (hopefully soon) with my next installment!
