Trying so hard saving up the paper.

An optimistic personal shopping story amidst the cold weather and husband-missing!

After recieving a very generous monetary gift for Christmas, I was keeping my eye out for a great pair of shoes or stellar handbag. I was definitely not active about my pursuit, at least not yet, and then I got a little sale e-mail in my inbox Wednesday with "L.A.M.B." in the subject line. Hey oh! L.A.M.B. bags on the cheap! And since yellow + gray is one of my favourite color combos...voila:

Isn't it sooooo pretty? It was marked down $300 from the original price. How much prettier does that make it?! I can't wait until it's in my hands.

And today, in the midst of snow swirling outside my office building right now, I stumbled upon something that actually made me swoon, and then pout when I saw the price tag.

I think the rose-tinted lenses are RAD. As I've just noted in my brain, I'll attempt sales or decent knock-offs when it gets warmer!

Oh well, one out of two ain't bad! Anybody just buy something online they're super duper into? Or get a great deal on something? I'm obviously quite excited about my most recent purchase. Feel free to post the link, too! I'm off to spend the weekend relaxing and perhaps a little hibernating...


  1. Wow, I LOVE the bag!

    sadly I haven't been actively looking in the sales this year. The money I was given for Christmas is more being used to help myself survive until payday next week, after I went a bit mental on Christmas presents!

  2. I like the bag, yep. It wouldn't look bad with those hot pants, either ;)

  3. Oh my goodness-- That bag is killer. I almost bought a pair of L.A.M.B. shoes the other day and it made me think of you.


    I just bought these boots and I am in love!
    -PS, i'm not creepy! I just found your blog a while ago and never commented. Love your entries!

  5. LOVE that bag. So gorgeous. I want it too.

  6. Thanks, Monica! I wouldn't think you were creepy!

    ALSO I LOVE THOSE BOOTS! HOLY MAJOLY! Those are a pair of boots I would want to try on in store to see if I could pull them off - they are beauts! Seriously, I may research finding a pair in the city to see how they'd look! (There's no Nordstrom's in the New York!)
