Best Shopping Day, EVER!

Today ruled sooo hard. I had the day off for the first time in a few weeks so a bit of shopping was obviously in need. My first stop was TJ Maxx in Cedar Rapids. Spencer the Dog came along for the ride. I was hoping to find a hot new handbag but came out with some treasures that definitely were not handbags. Oh well, that's how it goes, I guess.

In my cart:
1. Marc by Marc Jacobs sunglasses - $39
2. Betsey Johnson earrings- $13
3. BCBG silk top- $5
4. Liz Claiborne top in hot pink- $5
5. Liz Claiborne top in blue- $5
6. Bill Blass batwinged gold lame sweater - $13
7. Betsey Johnson 2 pack of tights- $2
8. Givenchy patterned tights- $1
9. Apple Bottoms wool motorcycle jacket- $15

Who knew Liz Claiborne actually made cute stuff? Both tops tie at the neck secretary style and rock my world. And the Bill Blass sweater looks like something Holiday Barbie would wear in 1988 so I had to have it! The BCBG top originally retailed at $150. Some good deals in the cart, if I do say so myself!

And for my little dog:
1. Box of fancy organic doggie biscuits- $4.99
2. Toy that makes crazy electronic noises-$4.

Spencer and I cruised around and ate a donut and drank some milk before heading back to Iowa City. My shopping partner is a Welsh Corgi!!!!!!!

Back in Iowa City, Spencer and I headed to Von Maur (my other little pleasure palace) and I FINALLY got the Dolce Vita booties I have been dreaming about for months now. I would have bought these puppies full price at $130 and would have gotten them 2 weeks ago when they were on sale for $88, but nope, I only paid $32 bucks for those bad boys!!! I am giddy as can be:)
