Conversation #158: A sale I had to tell you about...

If you have read my blog for a while (especially if you are a reader from my old blog), then you know I have a love affair with a certain brand: Lands' End Canvas.  I started off loving Lands' End, and then really fell in love with their new Canvas line as soon as it launched.  I own many items from that line.  Anyway, they are doing a few days of something they are calling Destination Deals.  The first few days they had some shorts on sale for $12.  They were cute and I loved them, but I held off knowing that working 5 days a week in a business casual office doesn't lend me much time to wear cute shorts.  I already have enough.

However, yesterday, their deal was on dresses, and I jumped on that opportunity because I LOVE dresses.  They are so easy and comfortable for the warm summer days down here in Texas.  Plus, I can wear them to work!  Go here and you can see all of the cute dresses for sale.  They are marked down to $34, but if you use the promo code listed on their page, you get an extra 20% off!!!  So since I already ordered mine, and I don't have to worry about y'all stealing them (I kid!) here is what I got:
100% silk, was $130, I got it for $27.20

100% cotton jersey knit, was $60, I got it for $27.20

100% cotton eyelet, was $100, I got it for $27.20 (this is SOLD OUT online)


I don't know if they will all be winners on me, but the nice things is that you can return LEC stuff to Sears!  I have definitely had to do this before, but not often.  I love the quality of LEC, and I could easily outfit my entire closet in only their clothing. (oh, and I got free shipping on my order, but I don't know if the code requires your total to be over $50 or not).  Okay, go check out the sale quick before they are all gone (they have a lot of other dresses too!)

Oh, and this is not a sponsored post or anything.  I am happily a Lands' End Canvas advocate on my own accord because I just love them that much - they don't have to give me anything to make me love them!

Awesome steals...I mean deals. :) If I wasn't preggo, I'd be wanting that polka dot dress too. So cute!

Conversation #114: Wardrobe Checklist (and retail detox update)

I read something a while back that sort of spurred me into thinking I needed to do this whole retail detox thing.  I'm just going to get it out there - it has been way hard for me and I'm super embarrassed and disappointed by that.  I did well for the first two weeks, and then I got into this buying and returning things habit because I felt bad after buying it.  I told myself that I could still buy things, but only with extra money I earned from ebay.  That worked for a while too, but then I caved to the Lands' End Canvas sale last weekend.  I bought three tees, a skirt, and a cardigan.  I think that all but maybe one tee will be going back and hopefully I can stop this extra shopping. 

Okay, back to the "thing" I read...

It was an article in Real Simple magazine targeted at helping you never buy the wrong thing again.  It has great tips in it, and the wardrobe checklist it includes really brought it all back home to me.  I started going through the checklist an…

The Post Office Blonde Moment

(Photo from: http://www.nauvoonews.com/nauvoo_photos.htm)

So I found a new satchel purse that I'm very excited about.  I got a better deal on this one than the other, and it is from one of my favorite purse companies, The Sak.  Here is a picture of it:
I decided that I needed to return a purse I bought from them a couple of weeks ago though to feel good about this purchase.  I bought it thinking I would love it, but I just couldn't make the shape fit for me.  I let it sit for a week or so, but it wasn't happening.  I was just going to keep it because the thought of returning it sounded like a hassle until this bag was revealed on their website, and it was waaaaay marked down for a week!  I decided I would just send the other one back, and so began the post office debacle.

I lost a little faith in the USPS this week - at least the local one near me.  I went on Monday night to pick up a priority mail box, and they were all out.  Plus, there were like 20+ people in line.  I de…

Conversation #203: So I married my mom

I don't know if people say this to men, but I heard a lot while growing up that girls tend to marry someone like their dad (I guess good, bad, or ugly).  I don't know how true that really is, but relatively early on in our marriage, my husband and I realized I married my mom.

This doesn't mean my husband is feminine or my mother masculine, but to say that they seem to be the same person.  I am definitely more like my dad personality wise so it probably make sense that I married someone more like my mom.  Now I will say my mom, being an actual woman, generally makes her a bit more empathetic and understanding to the eccentricities of being a woman.  I don't think any man, my husband or otherwise, will ever be able to understand the intricacies of being a woman. However, I also feel like he can talk to my mom, and being that they have both lived with me and seem to speak the same language,  can benefit from her wisdom and knowledge of co-habitating with me and enlighten …
