    I went looking for shoes this morning (no luck), but scored on some clothes:
    - 2 pairs of pants (beige and grey tweed)
    - pair of dark wash denim capris
    - grey and black print short sleeved blouse
    - cape-sleeve black swing open cardigan
    - this in sweet plum
    -this in teal

    After clearance discounts, a discount card and taxes, I paid $92!

    Sounds great... But I hate when I can't find the thing I'm looking for. Hubby and I agreed if it's something we really like then we should get multiples of it!!! You always seem to find it when you don't need it.

    I love the plum cardigan I bought. I had a hard time deciding on colour and am tempted to go back for the brown mix as well.

    It might be nice to have another color to work in. It would look very fall like....

    Time for a new bag as well. I bought this in the red. It's not a true red, more a burnt red-orange.

    You got some great stuff, Mrs.C! I am tempted to go shopping on Saturday to get one or 2 new things but since I have lost about 15 lbs I suddenly have "new" clothes in my closet :rolleyes: I am hoping to just hold off on buying too much until I lose 10 more but Back To School shopping is so much fun!

    Land's End at Sears had a good sale today. Jeans were $20 so I picked up a new pair. All their clearance stuff was 40% off the already reduced price. I got two clearancetees like this in navy and white. http://www.landsend.com/pp/womens-p...polos-turtlenecks-_-short-sleeve&origin=index I think they are a little different than that one though. They looked a lot better than I think that pic does, anyway. I also got this dress in mushroom, which I have to admit is the third color I now have of this dress but I love it so much. http://www.landsend.com/pp/womens-s...men-_-plus-size-_-dresses-skirts&origin=index

    Regular priced stuff was 25% off and I had been eyeing this vest online. I tried it on and liked it so I got it. http://www.landsend.com/pp/StylePag..._MERCH=REC-_-FPPP-_-GGT-_-3-_-420126-_-420719

    I also tried a few things on that I had been eyeing online that I did NOT like, so that was good to know, too. So overall it was a good day.

    I went on Wednesday and bought:

    2 long sleeved sweaters
    1 3/4 length shirt
    1 navy blazer
    1 cream top to go under the navy blazer
    2 pairs of pants
    1 scarf

    That may be it?? They are all in the same colour palette - navy, grey, mustard
