I love a good sale as much as the next girl. But sales are dangerous, too. However, this year, I think I did very well. Missoni has been having a "moment" (for me at least), and I got lucky and found a gorgeous black Missoni open cardigan duster sweater, about 70% off. I think I will wear this thing for many many years and feel like a million bucks every time!
Another great find, although perhaps not as luxurious, was a North Face fleece jacket. Not the run-of-the-mill, boring boxy regular fleece, but a body hugging tight belted version. Perfect for a person who wants to look good even when exercising, running after kids or just lounging around..
