A little indulgence!!

Today I did something I very rarely do.... I bought some new clothes for myself!!! Most of the times, I tell myself I don't want to buy anything until I lose a little weight.... Well, I am proud to say I have lost 16 pounds so far!! Soooooo..... I rewarded myself with a little purchase! While at Nordstrom Rack with my girls, I found this darling black velvet jacket, for which I paid a mere $14 (down from $68)... Gotta love a good bargain!!!

I also found a sweet white dress at Old Navy (also on clearance for $13)... Looks great with a denim jacket!    I don't know.... I may get used to this shopping thing...!!


  1. Bonjour ma chere,
    I am French too and i live in Utah. So glad i found your blog!
    I have a French obsession going on right now and would love if you link one of your posts.
    Come say Hi :)

  2. Forgot...16 pounds is a lot wow
    I always have to loose pounds after i have a baby and it is very hard. Congrats! Love the clothes and you look great with the jacket :)

  3. Congrats, I am still working on losing my baby weight and have been putting off new clothes shopping too.
    I am headed out tomorrow for some spring dresses. I love the white one you found.

  4. Lovely jacket, fantastic prices! I even think $69.- would have been a good price.

  5. Oh heck, if I waited until I lost the weight, I'd never get anything new. Wait a minute, I never get anything new...

    You found some great bargains there!
