I went to A&F yesterday, armed with a 20% coupon that I found online, and walked out three items richer and a few Andrew Jackson’s poorer. The selection at my particular store was never spectacular so I wasn’t really expecting to get anything, I even printed the A&F Kids coupon just in case. I was so happy to get them for the price that I did even though I still need to work out how to style them.

I can’t find this denim skirt online anymore but I do recall seeing it only last week in a few sizes. I picked this up in a size 00 (tag also says 24), as that is the only size available. It is so tiny on me and I think it’s skimming the line of indecency. In the pictures below I wore it with my Theory Darlin Blazer in 00 and Dolce Vita Madison pumps in 7.

The second item I got is the A&F Julia Dress. I had tried on this dress a few months earlier when it was still full price and was unimpressed with how it looked on me in spite of my obsession with seersucker. It’s $14.45 online before the additional 20% discount. Like PetiteXXS I also do some opposite season shopping to get the best discounts so I think this dress will be perfect for next summer. I think it doesn’t look great on me without a cardigan or a jacket but I love seersucker (did I mention that already?). Sorry about my bra straps showing in the pictures.

The third and last item I picked up is the Britt Dress. I had been eying this since it first came out because, again, I love seersucker and I like that only the skirt portion is seersucker. I got this in a size XS.

I had anticipated spending some money with all the Columbus Day sales going on and was worried I would be unable to resist all the good sales, I am fairly happy I didn’t spend more than I did. Baby steps, I guess.

I also ordered these Taryn Rose flats last night because I have wanted to try them for some time now and the price has fallen enough for me to risk the unfamiliarity with their sizing. I ordered these in a size 7.5 because the reviews warned that the length of these flats were shorter than average. Was originally $385 (GAH!), on sale for $49.94. Free shipping over $35 with code SHIPR (free DSW membership required).
