Whew, I had quite a few things to look through in my recent promo boxes. Lots of returns, alas, but at least my curiosity is sated, and no final sale risks, right? The biggest surprise was that instead of my elephant necklace popback, I received...someone's wedding dress! Um, wth? How did someone not catch this? I seriously hope there isn't some bride freaking out about her missing dress right now. And no, I didn't try it on. :) I just gently put it in the return pile. They should take a note from Land's End -- I can always clearly see an handwritten checkmark next to each item to ensure it's correct.
One of the pieces I added last minute was the new Lace-printed Sweatshirt. I ordered a small, and think I could have used an XS in this one. I don't mind a little slouch in a sweatshirt, but this one feels like it needs to be closer to the body, so I might re-try in the XS. I really like the lace-print in the ivory/black and think it could be very versatile. I think long sleeves might have been a better choice for winter, but they're not super short at least. It's substantial enough, and doesn't feel like it would fall apart in the wash (though who knows). I do like it, but I'm not sure I should keep it, even at the discount, as I do have a lot of cute sweatshirts already.
What do you think of this one? Check it out looking cute on ajc here.
Also, Madewell is offering 30% off sale items with code LOVEIT. They've marked down their suede Archive Boots, which look lovely.
BTW, it's BOGO holiday drink at Starbucks from 2-5pm starting today through the 18th! If only they'd do this in the morning -- can you imagine the stampede?
