christmas/after christmas loot
i got some really beautiful clothes for christmas, thanks mainly to jenny and doug. doug paid very close attention to my christmas list, and jenny picked up a beautiful steven alan shirt from the sample sale she went to. i couldn't love my new clothes more.
i also happened to stop by the gap this week while they were having a big after-christmas sale, where everything on clearance was an additional 40% off. after browsing for a while and scoring some gap holiday candles on super discount (also on my christmas list), i decided to try some things on thinking that my gap dressing room experience would end in it's usual way - me putting everything back. however, i was faced with a moral dilemma when everything fit really well. i have a really difficult time making good decisions when something is on sale, but i also have a very difficult time finding clothes that actually fit me. after walking around the store for a while, i decided to get three things: a really thick shawl collar sweater (i opted for the navy instead of the usual grey i'd pick), a chambray boyfriend shirt (i was on the fence with this one - wasn't sure the fit is right for my body, but this girl LOVES herself some chambray), and a pair of bright yellow corduroys. i'm especially excited about the corduroys. it's always good to have something that brings a little pop of color in the middle of winter.
btw, i'm loving the recipe suggestions from my last post. feel free to keep sharing - i need to build up the baking section of my recipe box.
