Time to play catch-up (again)!!!
These two outfits are from December 23rd (PM shopping at Potomac Mills Mall) and December 22nd (PM shopping at Pentagon City Mall). The outfits are not in date order because I like the December 23rd outfit and photos better, so I choose to show them off first. ;)
Polyvore for outfit #1. I wore the Winnie coat, but since you all saw it here already, I chose not to take a photo of the outfit with the coat. It looked good, I promise.
Love this shot because CW looks so sweet here. The cardi is laying weird, but I chose to publish this photo because of the cuteness on display. ;) The outfit was more than comfortable for shopping. Only issue I had was feeling a bit overdressed amongst the young teens of Potomac Mills mall. I never feel overdressed at Pentagon City or Montgomery Mall or Tyson's...but Potomac Mills, I see a whole lot of really baggy jeans, Ed Hardy tees, and backwards caps. And that's just the girls...heehee. BTW, no J. Crew at that mall...
Pants: Size 8.
Shoes: Size 10.
Here is the cardi with last season's sequined cashmere tank. Just a bit of sparkle there on the collar. Note that CW is coming up from the playroom with a puzzle. (Just snuck into the picture...)
This next polyvore is from outfit #2, worn on December 22nd to Pentagon City. Probably should have worn this outfit to Potomac Mills instead. Less dressy and fussy, but oh, well. ;)
Button-down is not the same as in the polyvore. The one I am wearing is from Eddie Bauer a long time ago. The rest of the polyvore is accurate.
This was the best photo of the bunch. I wasn't in the greatest mood when taking these photos, and since you can read my feelings from my face, when I am in a bad mood it ALWAYS shows in pictures. Ergh...I really wish I could be one of those poker-face kind of people. It would be nice to have an air of mystery.
Outfit was comfy enough. Love the peacock blues (vintage forest, whatever).
Can I ask a question of all of you who own the Cashmere V-Neck Henley? Do any of you think there is a button too many on this sweater? All the catalog images make it look like there is less buttons than in real life. I personally think the top button is superfluous (yes, I realize I normally like superfluity), but here it is bordering on obnoxious, like button overload!!!
Sweater: Size Small.
Top: Size 8.
Jeans: Size 30.
Shoes: Size 9.5.
Have a great day. More outfits, etc. to be published later. Plus, Mid-Century Mom tells me a new post may be in the future, too. Oh, and Cash from My Closet will have items on it that will only be there for five days. After five days these items will most likely vanish to the wonderful consignment shop Mint Condition if there are no takers. :) (I have an appointment there on December 31st...seems like an appropriate thing to do on the very last day of the year.)

You can buy this one for a mere 50 dollars from here.
I had the suggestion made by Kristin (when commenting on this post) that I do a poll for the best white tee out there. Since I rarely wear white tees, I couldn't really supply her with much info. The best I can think is that I own an Eddie Bauer tee from a few years ago that qualifies under the needs that she has: not see-through and comfy. This tee, when I wear it, fits the bill (well, to a tee, heehee, couldn't not say it).
This is such an important topic that the NY Magazine did an article on it!!!
I am opening up the floor to your ideas. There is also a poll running so people can vote on where they have purchased their best white tee.
Please, if you have a comment on why it is your favorite, comment here. Especially comment if you put down that you have another place where you buy it (like how I got mine at Eddie Bauer).
By the way, this weekend at Target I saw a tee that could fit Kristin's needs. It was located in the athletic section of the women's department. It looked simple, substantial, and super-comfy!
Enjoy...hopefully we find what we are looking for...
I won't be commenting back on all the comments because I am in the midst of grading and figure that all you all can figure it out for yourselves. :) I know you all don't mind and I thank you for that....

I'm BACK!!! I have FINALLY organized my trip photos and actually managed to get four seconds of free time to think of what posts I need to do...right now I have 8 posts scheduled (including this one) and those don't even include the Paris catalog OR pics of kids OR review of the many theme parks we went to over the past month. Whew...I have a lot of catching up to do!
Here is the outfit I wore from the day before Easter...yes, that's right...over two weeks ago. Man...
I am not going to write a whole lot about it...(I have a lot of post to do)...but here is a basic description...
Cardigan: Citron Merino V-Neck Cardigan from J. Crew Holiday 2007.
Tee: DINO-MITE bejeweled tee from T. Rex restaurant (bought while in Florida).
Jeans: I forget, but probably my Levis or Eddie Bauer. Love my jeans but they sort of all look the same even if they don't feel the same (I know a lot of men don't understand this but every woman I know gets what I just said).
Shoes: Dusty Rose Juliet Patent Heels from J. Crew Spring 2009.
Look forward to more from me later today! :)
