Today is a magical day of 40% off at Ann Taylor Loft. I still can't really believe that I enjoy this store so much, but it has it's moments. The lady at the register today (yes, I walked over there with a co-worker of mine on the way to grab our lunch at Protein Bar & managed to grab multiple items, try them on, and purchase them in about 13 minutes while she purchased a gift card) told me that I had "found all of the prettiest things in the store." Well my credit card didn't feel very "pretty" after that purchase! I actually did end up getting a really good deal on a bunch of items. Much better than the J Crew sale that I was browsing through all week tempted to press "checkout" at any moment. Glad I restrained until something better came along. Purchases below (Come on, who doesn't photograph clothing with a terrible Blackberry camera in their work cubes in between making spreadsheets? Don't judge me!). Is it bad that I'll be the only one in Breckenridge wearing a sparkly tank on New Year's Eve while everyone around me is sporting a Patagonia? Yea, I didn't think so either. Sorry for partying, I like sparkles. Happy New Year Colorado Ski Town. And yes, I know what you're thinking. Another pencil skirt. I just can't get enough of shimmering pencil skirts. Woo!
