I am not exactly a fashionista.
Yes, I love reading Vogue and InStyle and watching The Rachel Zoe Project. I dream of owning many pairs of Jimmy Choos and would love to own these Christian Louboutin beauties. But in reality, I'm a mom on a limited budget and my clothes tend to be somewhat boring. Sure, I accessorize with jewelry, but when I'm working (at an office) you'll likely find me in black pants, a top and black heels. Not so adventurous, right?
Despite all that - I do love to shop. I just don't shop often. I haven't bought a new pair of shoes in MONTHS. And, before Friday, I had not bought a new "fall wardrobe piece" since, well, last fall.
Last Friday I was invited to attend the grand opening ribbon cutting ceremony at The Limited (located at Westfield/Franklin Park in Toledo). It's been many years since The Limited was part of our local mall, so I was very excited to see it return.
This new store did not disappoint! The store is beautiful and homey and bright and it even has an eBar - an area where you can shop online or your husband can "surf the 'net" while you shop the store. That is brilliant. According to a press release from The Limited, the Toledo store features the "newest store design concept demonstrating a direction toward a more modern, feminine style."
After the ribbon cutting ceremony I had a chance to actually shop and while there were MANY things I wanted to buy, I chose two tops and a pair of faux pearl earrings.
I plan to go back and shop some more in the next few weeks - I need to add some color to my fall and winter wardrobe (which is, admittedly, quite full of black and gray)...and I think I'd like to buy one of each of these sweaters! (I especially love the pink, blue and eggplant colors).
And I'm guessing many of you want to update your fall wardrobe, since cooler temps are right around the corner.
