Retail Detox Update

A good Tuesday afternoon to ya'll!
So do you want me to just jump right in and tell you the horrible details of detoxification???
Well, really I don't have but one jonesing story for you this week.
I think it was Tuesday last week when my story happened.
 (see I have already tried to block it out of my mind)
  There was a grand opening of a new accessory store right near my house. 
 I had seen the signs and driven by a few times.
  The posters in the window lead me to believe it was probably a pretty cheesy place.
I thought I'll just pop in and see how awful this place is and then I am sure I will never set foot inside again. 
 WRONG! 
 The place was AWESOME! 
 Not only accessories, but boots, shoes, scarves, wraps, tops and on and on.....
I did actually walk the entire store (very fast) and I kid you not I think I might have started hyperventilating if I hadn't high tailed it out of there! 
 That's bad isn't it!?
So let's talk about what I am wearing,because my hands are getting clammy and there is a bit of perspiration on my forehead just writing about that store.
Love the red and camel combo. 
 I usually don't wear the camel color because it washes me out so much, but it is just so yummy.
Hence, the 3 necklaces I wore. 
 Thought it would bring some interest to my face and help with the wash-out effect.
Since I had such attention grabbing jewelry at the neck I kept everything else subdued. 
 I wore my fabulous heeled oxfords to pull it all together.

Okay I won't make you wonder any longer.
  The accessory store I went to is called Versona
I think it is a national chain.
 Have you heard of them? 
 Have you ever been in the store? 
 What did you think?

camel stripe sweater-Loft

I've never heard of this store. We must not have them here. Girl? You went crazy for a second, huh? haha. Oh my lord you had me rolling on the floor laughing. I'm surprised I didn't wet my pants. So, thanks for the giggles. And also, I'm sorry you're having a terrible detox.

Those red pants are fab and I love that camel striped sweater. It's great. I think it looks fine with your skin tone, actually. How about a dark gem toned scarf around the neck? That would be cute too.

Did you see my vlog? I finally did one. UGH. It's so embarrassing. Yours are always so great. Anyway.......

xoxo,

Heehee I would have reacted the exact same way- I swear it's like detoxing from a substance addiction (well actually I wouldn't know but it sure seems like it!) Yo're looking fly in this outfit however and I absolutely love the necklaces!

Kristin said...

Those pants are so flattering and I love the color. Good for you, making it out of the store without a purchase. I can only imagine the strength that took!
