I love sales! In Hoboken.

To say that I love fashion would be an understatement. I am inspired by it. I create pieces of art around it. Every once in a while I deceive myself into thinking that I am no longer interested in it, that nothing this season appeals to me. And then.... my best friend comes to visit. We have a long leisurely lunch catching up on life and the inevitable question comes up. " Do you want to take a walk?" which translated means " Let's go shopping now so that we may torture ourselves and encourage each other to but pretty things". And that is what we did this last Sunday in Hoboken, my stomping grounds. Maybe it's the economy or just the gods laughing at me, but so many great things were on sale! I had a fruitless walk through of Loehmans the other day in which I decided that this seasons held no interest to me. I was wrong!
I found this amazing little "go out/ layering top" at Jesse James for 45 dollars! Marked down from $184. It's by Myne and I love the rest of their line too. End of the season sales in Hoboken are magic ( am I going overboard? Most likely. But I love the hunt for discount goodies! Plus I am seriously shopping deprived.). I also had luck at Parlor whose edited selection is always impressive. I found a great top ala "Stevie Nicks 1987/ witchy woman" on sale for 75 dollars! Alas, I looked like the shapeless MuMu mess that most people would in that top ( and most likely accounting for its seriously marked down status). To be long and lanky for one day!
