This has nothing to do with Christmas, but maybe you'll want to online shop after you get some Christmas money...
A few months before my pregnancy with Isabel my husband and I were shopping in Paris and I went into one of my favorite international stores, MANGO. (I believe it's from Spain) I purchased some high-wasted jeans and a cute skirt, came home from our trip and found out my extra weight gain was not due to cheese and bread but baby girl! However, I never got to wear my new clothes because they were waiting for Fall, and Fall came and went as I rounded out.
WELL I finally can wear my MANGO jeans (and they don't seem as cute for some reason?- maybe I was excited to buy them because we were in Paris... blah blah).
So I randomly found MANGO online tonight and rekindled my like for this store! I think I like them because it seems a little more grown-up than your typical Urban Outfitters but more Euro than the Gap. Anyway, here's to fitting into my jeans!
For a high fashion store, their sales are really great, and cheaper than anthropologie... ;) Here's a board of sale items I am digging. I love those shoes.
But speaking of style... I was looking at some upcoming fashion trends and I'm a little nervous. It was long Amish looking skirts, socks with sandals and nude neutrals (which are really hard to pull off without the right skin-tone) Anyway, this alarmed me a little, but then again I still don't like stone-washed jeans so I'm sure I'll get over it (but I won't be wearing long ankle skirts... I just can't, it will remind me of my Malaysian Missionary days).
These are actually kind of cute, but pose a problem for my constant secretly mis-matched socks under my boots! Will you wear socks and sandals?
