April Showers

A few weeks ago I had a chance to score 10,000 NM points if I spent $500 on something from their premier designer category. I had a red Burberry jacket all picked out but at the last minute, changed my mind. I figured I shouldn't get suckered into promotional deals like this unless I really wanted whatever it is that they're offering. I've been regretting that decision ever since. This weekend I somehow ended up at Burberry (alright, fine, I specifically planned my shop-a-thon around a trip to Burberry...) and walked out with two new jackets :) Now I can rest in peace. The best part: I had an excuse to wear my new rain trench today cus it was pouring in the morning. Besides being at good at shopping, I apparently can also coordinate my purchases with the weather. Sweet.

What I had on inside the trench:

One of my coworkers annoyingly likes to make fun of this top bc of the over-sized bow. I in turn think hes a bit clueless in the fashion department :P

Some outtakes with the kids:

Yes, thats right, Libby finally decided to make an appearance today to wish you all HAPPY MONDAY!!

Outer: Burberry, Top: Free Generation, Jeans: BR, Shoes: YSL

Very cute! I love Burberry jackets!

Heather said...

i just picked up a burberry coat at bloomies f&f, i love it!

Purse Addict said...

Thank you Michelle and Heather! Heather - congrats on the coat!! What color did you get?

BCBG said...

its really a nice, bright red! ist a great color for brunette in my opinion! I was wondering, which bag do you carry the most? and wich wallet do you use ? I noticed that you don't have a matching wallet for each of your bag (like a lot of people!) so I was wondering what kind of wallet did you use on a regular basis!:-)

Purse Addict said...


I dont really have one bag that I continually go back to. I try to give all my purses equal TLC so I rotate them every 3-4 weeks. With my wallets, I definitely dont try to match them with my purses cus that would be WAAAAY too many wallets! I actually usually only stick to one...previously I used my white My Dior wallet. Thats now in need of a dye job. I then moved onto my BV zip in Turbulence. Thats still in good shape but my current pick is my Bal Arena in Tempete :)

Congratulations. The red trench looks great on you. Interesting thing is I was eyeing a short trench coat last week too. (did get it though. :))

As for Greissimo in black and white damask fabric CL heels, yes, I was thinking of getting them as well....... but didn't find my size in Nordi...maybe I "will" have to start calling around for a inventory check!! haha..

have a great weekend, fab. girl!!!

Purse Addict said...

Hi Rachel!! What size are you?? I know the Greissimo are starting to run low in sizing everywhere so I would call ASAP!!! Have a good weekend with your family <3
