Here’s something simple for a quick run to campus to meet with my adviser yesterday:
Every so often I like to go window shop at the high-end departmental stores i.e. Saks, Bloomingdales and Neiman Marcus to check out the latest and sale items they have in store. I haven’t been to the high-end stores since my birthday at the end of May, so I decided to hit them up today as I was curious to check out the new Fall/Winter collection items. Specifically, I wanted to check out the new Marc Jacobs scarves and bags and of course Chanel is a must! Heh. However, the Marc Jacobs scarves weren’t in store yet and there weren’t many bags from the new collection on display either. I did however, checked out the gold and bronze reissue colors for Chanel’s Fall Act I.
Here’s what I wore for my window shopping trip…
Shorts: The Limited (from TJ Maxx)
Shoes: Banana Republic (Ebay find!)
Bag: Marc Jacobs Christy in Bordeaux as posted here
Necklace: Forever 21 and white gold necklace with star pendant
Bracelet: Glass beaded necklace as posted here
Brooch: Chanel as posted here
I also tried on the new Ferragamo bow ballet flats which was lovely but the leather was rather stiff. I think I like the Varinas a bit better coz they fit snugly and I didn’t want to take them off the last time I tried it!
As I browse around, some of the Sam Edelman shoes captured my eyes. I didn’t try them but I like these two pairs and would probably check them out come sale time!
Look what arrived in the mail yesterday evening!
Come F/W 07, the Christy came in Bordeaux, a gorgeous shade of deep red and I pondered about getting it when it went on sale. It would be more versatile than the Navy but I I reminded myself to keep my eye on the prize, the Navy of course and decided to let it slide. When I did come to my senses and tried tracking one down, it was history repeating itself. GONE! Will I ever learn my lesson? Perhaps not, since I am such a scrooge and I believe that if it is truly meant to be, it will be mine in the end. Heh.
Since then, I have always dreamt about the Christy and wondered if I would ever find it. I also began to wonder if it was practical to have a blue bag and how often I would wear it. I came to the conclusion that I probably would not be able to carry it as much and perhaps the Bordeaux might have been a better alternative.
Last week, I found this baby on the ‘bay from a lovely forum member for a great price. Can you guess which Christy is it?
