My Aunt has worked at Talbots for as long as I can remember. When we used to go visit her at work the store was filled with “wealthy” old ladies. These ladies ranged from the elegant grandmothers, to the grumpy senile older crowd. The styles in the store catered to this.
A few years ago I went in to visit her again. My first reaction was excitement, I loved the clothes. My second reaction was OMG I have old lady taste. Laughing she told me it wasn’t me, they had tried to update the line and attract a younger crowd. Giant sigh of relief.
End Side Note~
I ended up heading over to Talbots to just say Hey, and again was surprised at how much I loved the clothes. I was even more surprised to see a giant 50% off sign in Clearance land. This made these clothes nearly affordable on my very small budget. After a quick Hello, she was busy helping out one of the more senile older ladies, it was off the clearance racks. My enthusiasm grew as I realized that the sale items were half off the already reduced price.
After 3 hours of picking out and trying on I knew why people were willing to pay extra for clothing from a nice store. Everything fit nicely, looked flattering, and was made of great quality. Here are some of the items I grabbed.
Flats in my favorite color, Kelly Green.
They gave my heels the largest blisters I've had in awhile, but were worth it!
A sweater to match.
I loved that sweater so much I got in a few other colors.
This Pink and Black too!
I was the girl in college who wore button downs with a cable knit sweater over. I wore them everywhere, one night I tried to wear it to the bar and my friends wouldn't allow it. The sweater set is my new version of that.
Brown Linen Pants, dry clean only… this is the official sign of big girl clothing
I also loooooove NY&Co city knit pants. They feel like sweats, but look like dress pants.
These photo's all make it look like I wear lots of colors, but really it's usually a plain black, brown, etc colored pant with a cute shirt and a sweater. If I'm feeling lazy, it's just the sweater set.
Clearly I've had alot going on... like I said I stockpiled photo's. Just wait I even have idea's for future posts! That's all for now friends... I promise to be back!
