Still Jumping for Joy!

Some people can sing, some people can play basketball, some people can fix cars and some people can make Jello. Not I. I can shop,

Went across the border this weekend with some friends to get them 'stretchy pants' (dual function; for pregnancy and turkey eating). I scored huge. Thankfully everyone did very well so I didn't have to try and hide my good fortune; I still don't think I've stopped smiling. Stocked up on a crapload of summer basics but my biggest finds were at the Saks outlet. I got a Elie Tahari one-shoulder dress that was originally $600, for $35. It's blue and silk chiffon and gorgeous and nothing is wrong with it and it fits just right. I have an event to wear it to next week, so you'll see it I'm sure... AND I got a silk jersey Diane von Furstenberg dress that was originally $300, for $15!!! It's colourful and comfy and casual and has pockets and a low cross strap back and it fits just right. I have a little sneak peak below. I can't wait until it is hot outside and I'm sipping sangria in my DvF. I got skills... they're multiplying...

Just a little tip for the local readers (all seven-ish of you, I love you all!). Check out the Superstore along the QEW in Grimsby, for the Joe Fresh collection. The JF baby collection is sold in more local stores but I think this is the only one nearby with the complete (?) adult collection too. Just our luck, the Grimsby population is not prone to trying new looks, so that leaves a lot of choice. For example, there is a full, blue silk skirt selling for $29 but I know it'll never go and so I'll wait... I know I bitch about the lack of selection at the local h&m and about not having a Zara nearby but I'll gladly go without them for the selection I get at my local Winners and Joe Fresh.

Oh ya. And Joe Fresh just came out with a make-up line. I got a new lipgloss and it is popping!

While you're checking out the clothes at the "Superstore along the QEW in Grimsby, for the Joe Fresh collection" don't forget to check out their Sweet Chili wings from the deli counter. They're fantastic!

Hey, you like clothes, I like food ;-)

You forgot to say "My good friend 'L"'introduced me to Joe Fresh. shes a Joe Ho"...
grrr... I want DVF for few dollars....

p.s. You are lucky you live in the H dot with only a handful of fashionable people. In T dot, if you see it at Joe you buy it because when you walk around the store to think about it and come back, its gone!
I will always remember that one coat...

Okay one more post. I would be careful at Joe because if it is an amazing skirt, and doesn't sell in H.Dot, they will ship it away to the store where it sold out at...so...you should buy it.
