retail therapy!

Want to go shopping with me?

OK I already went but wanted to share the spoils with you.

Because I am very spoiled, indeed!

It was a great way to beat the blues yesterday -
my one-stop shop of choice was Winners,
because it made me feel like one - LOL!

First off, some badly-needed linen for our new bed - 
Ralph Lauren polka-dots!
How awesome is that!
With a couple of deep red pillow cases, why not.
Now all we need are duvet covers,
but that will have to wait for another rainy day.

A sweet, stretchy, super-soft girly top
to wear with jeans - the cut is really comfortable!

It's a change from my normal whites, greys and blacks -
and with a little touch of sparklies on the front, 
what's not to smile about :)

I adore this feather-light and silky soft shirt -
the sleeves can be worn either full-length or rolled up.
It feels luxurious on  my skin!

A columbia sports top, very soft and stretchy material,
light and oh so comfy - the cut is awesome, too!

A very feminine knitted sweater,
shimmery dove grey and made of weighted silky material - 
feels good and looks great for both casual and dress-up days!

I actually went in to get some jeans and voilà!
Found two pairs with a great fit, woo!

Being optimistic, I splurged on a pair of sweet cargo pants -
I love that they can also be worn as capris!

The belt is kinda funky, too :)

And no, all of this didn't break the bank -
I do love a good treasure hunt 
for the process as much as for the rewards!

Today I spring-cleaned my closet,
it felt good to purge.

The church basement will get a big bag of gently-used clothing
that will make other people happy
and it made *me* happy to do it.

All in all, a lovely time :)
