saturday, july 25th '09

saturday day: drove upstate to woodbury commons premium outlets. it was a huge disappointment, but at least i got to practice my highway driving. the barneys outlet was the biggest disappointment for me, they had one small rack of designer things and everything else was stuff from co-op. neiman's last call and saks off fifth also yielded nothing. i wanted belts from the balenciaga and gucci outlets but they didn't have my size. i did not leave empty-handed, i did buy some basic tops for work from the polo outlet, but all in all i wish i had stayed in the city instead.

saturday night: got back to the city in time for dinner, changed my clothes but kept the same accessories so i was in and out in less than twenty minutes! i think this dress (which i bought for $63 on clearance from filene's basement) is actually a top... oh well! when it's hot and humid and you're as short as i am it's a little more acceptable i hope.

  1. filene's basement??? I never find anything there...although I never really tried too hard. I think petite girls can pull
    off short dresses without looking trashy. And it's my weird thing but tanned legs also make it more acceptable too. In conclusion, cute outfit.

  3. I've only been to Woodbury Common once last year in October and I agree the Barneys Outlet only had Co-Op stuff. Well, shoe wise they had at least Louboutins and Blahniks but that was all. The Helmut Lang boutique had some nice stuff but none left in small sizes and some of the delicate sweaters were ripped.
    I might go there again in September though because sometimes you get lucky. And it's only an hour bus ride away from the city.

    Love to see you wear some color like that orange shirt and Missoni top/dress. You can def. get away with wearing it as a dress.

  9. woodbury was fruitless? terrible. i've been itching to go there since they opened the bal store, but haven't made it.

    amazing that you've ever found ANYTHING in Filene's. i always come up empty handed...

    great finds, all.
