Airport shopping in Dubai

Hi friends! I have missed you.
I’m in Dubai on my way from a wonderful time in Kenya.

Don’t worry: I didn’t buy any of these.

I also considered buying a hookah just to see my friends’ reaction as I boarded the plane. But cooler heads prevailed.

I also didn’t buy any Arabic lady fiction (because I will be asleep all the way to NYC).

Weekend Update

I approached this weekend with little planned – in a good way! Business travel Monday and Tuesday had left me feeling a bit tired.

Dinner on Friday with my friend Julie popped up as an option. We had a drink at Jane and then dinner at The Dutch. Very fun catching up.

I’d like to thank the Academy…the CVS Academy

That exists, right?

It totally should because I need to thank someone for acknowledging my super saver-ness. I got this email Monday:

CVS

This wasn’t a big surprise. Anyone who has snooped in my bathroom knows I’m a health and beauty hoarder. Continue reading

I bought it

Actually, I bought them. Two cocktail dresses. I went looking for one dress for my company’s upcoming holiday party but the prices were so good that I bought two. Total damage with sales and a Lord & Taylor coupon: $220.

First option is this silver number from Anne Klein.

My Brooklyn Saturday

How was your weekend?

Brooklyn is such a big borough – NYC’s 2nd largest and most populous – that I sometimes feel bad for not exploring more. On Saturday, I saw friends and checked out new-to-me places without ever leaving BK. I loved it!

First I met up with my new friend Sarah in Bushwick. We had brunch at Roberta’s and then walked – and walked – to the Jonathan Adler warehouse sale.

Bushwick

Brunch was terrific.

I bought jeans!

Remember my jean stress? Rejoice! I found a pair of jeans I love:

Via Polyvore

They’re DKNY Jeans, Skinny-Leg Tuxedo-Stripe, Mamba (!!) Wash.

It’s a good news/bad news situation.

The good: I found them at Marshall’s on sale for just $29. The bad: because they’re already at Marshall’s and priced so low, I probably won’t find them elsewhere, perhaps in another color.

Macys has a few pairs left as of press time. If you buy, go a size down. They run big.

I bought ‘em: Bussola Trapani boots

I got these boots at DNA in Williamsburg. My mother will hate them.

What should I wear with them?

I almost bought these Steve Madden boots before spotting the Bussolas. The Steve Madden pair was a little cheaper, but far less comfortable. Plus I preferred the extra buckles.

What will you be buying for fall?

I went to Cape Cod – Part One: Sandwich

As you may have seen from my tweets, I went to Massachusetts to visit one of my favorite people.

The weather cooperated Saturday so we took a day trip to Cape Cod. I had never been!

We made the most of the beautiful day, checking out three towns.

First: Sandwich

We browsed at the Sandwich Artisans show at the public library.

I bought myself a pair of earrings from Mei Mei of Lexington.

Later we had lunch at the Brown Jug, also in Sandwich, on their charming patio.

Have you been to Sandwich? If so, what did you think?
