I hope this title caught you off guard!
I also hope that everyone had a fantastic Labor Day weekend! Ian and I traveled home for a long weekend in PA, and I must say that after several days spent with the family, old friends, a day outlet shopping in Chocolate Town USA (aka, Hershey PA) and stumbling across a kick-ass consignment shop was just the mini-vacation I needed.
So about the blog post title. No, my new job has not driven me to smoke. I'm talking about cigarette PANTS, an item that I have been longing for for months and months. After my previous post lamenting about boxy dress pants, cigarette pants are the perfect cross between classy and casual, perfect for hot summer days when you want to show a wee bit of ankle (SCANDALOUS!) and still look pulled together.
When I walked into the Gap Outlet, I wasn't expecting to have much luck as I never seem to do at outlets, but I was drawn to a rack of 50% black tapered pants. And they are absolutely perfect!
I was also lucky to score some new tops at the Ann Taylor Loft outlet, another store I have always loved from afar, but never took the plunge with any pricey purchases. This particular top was actually a hand me down from my mom, but I also scored a similarly cute tank top for only $9.99.
You might also notice a new bag--this was a steal at $2.00 from Wears Like New, the consignment shop we stopped in. Yes, you read that right--$2.00. Stay tuned for some more info on this bag this week.
Anyone else score some sweet Labor Day deals?
