A Shopping Odyssey

odyssey: (\ˈä-də-sē\) n. 1. a long wandering or voyage usually marked by many changes of fortune

Juicy Couture pencil skirt, Tahari top, Miu Miu flats, vintage turquoise necklace

As I mentioned in the last post, on Friday I went shopping with a friend. We really didn't buy much other than a lot of frappuccinos and iced chais, but I got MAC Lipglass in Viva Glam VI, as well as the denim Juicy Couture skirt pictured above. I love it - it looks professional and cute at the same time - especially with a shirt tucked in.

We were out shopping rather late - for a total of about 5 hours. It was way fun and there were actually a lot of sales. Most stores had an additional 25% off of all sale items, including Juicy Couture.
And actually, when we went there we discovered the new Juicy Couture perfume (you might have heard of it, I hadn't), Couture Couture. It's very clever - it somehow smells like both other Juicy perfumes combined. And the bottle is gorgeous.

Speaking of new perfumes, I've been meaning to check out the newly released D+G scents - Harper's Bazaar describes them as "distinctive and provocative." Sounds good to me!

So was it an odyssey? I'd say 5 hours is "long," and as for a change in fortune, well, I certainly have less money than I did before I went!

thanks - and like I said, Juicy Couture and other stores (like BCBG and Free People) are having some good sales.
I think Neiman Marcus was having a pre-sale, too.
