There are so many good sales going on right now, I’ve pretty much had to put my credit card in the freezer to keep myself contained.  I’m SO tempted by the awesome stock of Equipment blouses marked down at The Outnet in particular.  This leopard wonder (Equipment, on sale for $93) has grabbed my attention.  I’d wear it with my white fluted mini (J. Crew, on sale for $39)

And, of course, black flats (Jimmy Choo, $650 — or get the look for less with the Viv from J. Crew)…with this Givenchy tote (on sale for $1,358), which I’ve been eyeing for the past few weeks.  I’m on the prowl for a great new carry-my-life-in-it tote that I can carry to/from work (meaning that it needs to fit my MacBook Air), and this may just fit the bill.

I’ve also had my eyes on this leopard tote (also Givenchy — pre-sale for $1,145) as an alternative.  Slightly more restrictive in terms of day-to-day pairing, but it’s just fab.  And it’s just too spot on similar (hehehe) to these amazing Tod’s loafers not to include them as well ($650).

I saw this and thought it was uh-may-zing ($1,151).  Cobalt and black are so fierce.  I have a pair of cobalt skinnies I like to wear with black blouses and fur in the winter, and it’s making me kinda miss layering.  But not really.  Warm weather — the fleeting few days we have of it here in Chicago — are delicious.

ALSO.  I don’t know how this happened, but I just discovered a whole cache of comments on some of my previous posts, and feel so awful I never responded to you chickadees!!!!  I will be more vigilant in the future; for now, know that they all made me smile, and that I share Xena’s thought that I still want some Rockstuds but know they’re already on their way out and also…holy moly, I did not know anyone else watched “All I Want For Christmas.”  Long lost soul sisters unite!
