Hurrah! Summer sales are on! With the pending arrival of the new diplomat’s baby, I have to admit clothing shopping is not as much fun. There are only so many muu-muus one can consider as an ensemble. However, since nothing from the “real world” fits, and since maternity clothes only seem to be available online in sizes that don’t make any sense, I’ve used my in person shopping time stateside – where everything seems to be mere pennies on the euro – to explore my new found love necklaces and other jewelry, since there are no sizes on them.
I’m trying to keep the expansion of my collection in proportion to the expansion of my mid-section (and top section), and a jaunt to the sale rack at Anthropologie yielded some particularly fine finds and particularly minimal prices. If you’re in the market for accessories, now’s a great time to stock up. I’m also pleased to report that I was finally able to score one of the original objects of my affection at Kate Spade for a song as well. The theme of the late summer lookbook is now “distract from the middle!”.
