I have been reading a lot lately. My brother kindly found me an iPad mini and so far I've read through A Song of Ice and Fire and the Shopaholic books. Obviously both clothing and dragons excite me immensely. I don't quite know why the Shopaholic movie changed the colour of a Very Important Scarf to green (it was blue in the books), but that's OK. Green scarves are better anyways.
I really like this scarf-- the colour's great, and it's big and floofy enough to wear like a shawl when I get cold (which is always). I've actually used this scarf as a blanket in a movie theatre to great effect. Unfortunately, it made everything else it rubbed against green, plus it's care tag told me it was dry clean only, but I did a quick hand wash and it's much less bleed-y now!
More than the scarf, I am happy about this dress. I wanted it when I saw it initially, but it was around $50, which for me, was too much. I happened to walk into the store one day and find it on super sale and immediately snapped it up! I find sweater dresses great for work and for my climate and they're super easy for those days that you don't feel like working too hard to get dressed.
I actually never bought these shoes-- a friend asked me if I was a size 7 once and it turned out that she used to be a size 7 before her pregnancy, and wasn't after... basically making these shoes a gift from her baby. Which I'm OK with.
