Keepers: CB2 knitted gray pouf -- This has been on my wish list for a long time and I even included it in my April Houzz Ideabook. It looks great in our living room and I use it almost much every day.
I took advantage of the Layered and Long Etsy shop discount I posted about the other week and bought a Wishbone necklace. It's even prettier in person and I've already worn it a few times. Use the promo code CORNFLAKE at checkout for 10% off -- I'm tempted to buy this necklace too.
GiGi New York All in One Bag, stone embossed python - I am a huge fan of GiGi New York and Graphic Image! Their leather wallets, bags, and planners are high quality and made in the USA. The All in One Bag is beautiful in person and it's the perfect size for date nights and brunch dates (it fits my phone, credit cards, sunglasses and lip gloss).
and now for the Returns: I waited until the last day of the Nordstrom anniversary sale and bought a Caslon Drape Neck Zip Tan Cardigan - I had high hopes for this cardigan but it just looked frumpy. I also bought the Spanx 'Ready to Wow' structured leggings -- they are good in theory but eeks no. They were really tight up top (ok that might be the Spanx part), the cut was not flattering and they were very uncomfortable.
And finally, the Kristen Blake Piped Stretch Cotton Trench Coat (currently on sale 1/2 off) unfortunately did not work out. I liked this trench, it had nice thick water resistant fabric, pretty lining and seemed well-made. But it was too big on me. I normally wear a Small but I think this coat would fit better in a Petite XS -- hopefully Nordstrom restocks soon!
