The (mid-) week in shopping
My apologies for being a bit behind this week. Between this wedding last weekend, the election, and it being my busy week at work, I haven't been quite on top of things. But there's nothing like a devastating blow to the Democratic party to get me thinking about shopping! Um, not really, but I'm trying to focus on positive things. Like America's Next Top Model is on tonight...and I have a kickass new coat from Vintage Cool Things...and my total lack of appetite means that at least I'll lose a few pounds! Sorry to be Debbie Downer, kids (wah wah wah). On that note, on to the sales...
