Ribbons & loose thread

Here we are at Friday again! I am headed for a packed next 7 days. Between finishing up at Macy's and starting at the Loft I will be working every day but Monday. So  I am going to look at it this simply....more hours = more employee discount shopping......see, now it sounds so much better.

Here is what I wore yesterday before work. I had another Social Worker visit and then ran out for some errands. For those of you eyeing the necklace, I grabbed it at Banana Republic this week. It is not online but may be in stores....it is a beauty. And yes, I did cut that wild thread before I left the house.

Here is what I am wearing today inspired by this polyvore set . I ended up throwing my hair into a loose, messy ponytail because it went with the feel of the outfit better.  I am picking up Chase early from school as a special treat to take him out for lunch and a little shopping. Before you go thinking I am a bad mommy, it is an early release day so all he is missing is lunch and recess. Speaking of shopping, I decided I needed to have the neapolitan pencil skirt and I went to grab it and WHAT? They only have size 14 left so I called CS and they are doing a storewide search for me.....wish me luck! Have you ever done the storewide search? If so, how did it work out?

Oooo, I hope you get that skirt! I've never done a storewide search before, but I've heard success stories from JCA! I'm crossing my fingers for you! I love that maya cardigan on you! The color is darling!

Also, I went to my local Ann Taylor to search for the lace skirt for you and all they had in stock were 2 size 6's and one size 12. :( I'm sorry!

This is too funny, I just did a store search for the same skirt yesterday, and they found it! I need the 14, but it wasn't on the website yesterday, but it "reappeared" this morning. I've had good luck with the "We will find it for you" service in the past. My fingers are crossed for you!

On Monday CS did a storewide search for me for the Jaipur Skirt and not only did they find the skirt within 2 hours but they shipped it out on the same day! I received it yesterday and love it! : ) Best of luck to you!

I think the ribbon blouse is true to size. I usually wear a six in their dress tops and this is a four and it is a little tight across the chest.
