Shopping Tips of the Day, Local and Not

Yay! It's a great day to buy your own Christmas present, which is what I've been told to do. Fun, eh? Unfortunately, no one provided the childcare for me to shop, but maybe you can buy me something. I did manage to take advantage of the Hayden-Harnett online sample sale, which I'll tell you about, now that I got the bag I wanted. Here you are:

Woohoo! Sample Sale! For people who don't live in a fancy city!

I scored the Lucie Clutch and the Bernardin Day Bag (in Haze, although I was so tempted by the black patent!) I apologize if that spoils the surprise of what I'll be getting for Christmas. Actually, the Bernardin is a thank you present from my husband, because I found him a car. It's a Prius (yay!) and he's looking forward to driving a car that works. By the way, I'm so over calling pocketbooks "baaaaaahgs" or the less pretentious, but too feeble, "purses." They're pocketbooks, m'kay? Anyhow, there were other things I liked, so feel free...

In local news, VanJean is having a 40% off everything sale, today only! I tried hard to buy something, but Baby J wouldn't oblige. He crumbled free cookies* all over the dressing room floor while I desperately tried to find something I liked. My ADD just would not permit me to think about clothes I wanted to wear and clothes I didn't want Baby J to destroy at the same time. And they are so nice at VanJean. No one batted an eye when I asked for a carpet sweeper to clean up the mess. They cleaned it up for me and didn't even kick me for not buying anything. They are open until 8 pm, so I may try again, without the cutest little albatross ever.

After my traumatic experience in VanJean, I let Baby J wander up the sidewalk to release some energy. I made it into tullulah for five minutes to get a present for my Bunco group's gift exchange tonight. We do that thing where you draw numbers and, when it's your turn, you can either pick a present or steal someone else's. I got a pair of my favorite underpants, in pink. We'll see if anyone is brave enough to steal them. They're mad comfortable, I swear!

In other news, if this is your sort of thing, Pink Sorbet is open. It's one of those Lily Pulitzer shops. I have limited affection for Lily. I don't think you can grow up in the South without having at least one memory of wearing Lily. And I did rock a hot pink Lily bikini throughout my entire last pregnancy, much to the chagrin of...well, anyone who saw me. I love the look of vintage Lily and they seem to be getting back to that, which is cool. I also love the little boys' bathing suits, which they don't have yet, but will be getting. They had this dress, which is pretty awesome, if you ask me. I have nowhere to wear it, so feel free to snap it up. They're having a Grand Opening on Saturday, starting at 9 am. There will be specials, prizes and refreshments, so go for breakfast.

And, the Saturday after that, go for breakfast at Gervais and Vine, at the all-local Farmer's Market. I'll see you there - and you can check out my new pocketbook!

Namasté, y'all!

* They also had cheese straws and pretzels. Yum!
