    great look and very economical. Very much nulling the hypothesis that one cannot be fashionable on a budget.

    WTF? 97 cents, did you buy 20 of them?

    Silje’s fashion: I really love BR’s lightweight wool collections, for the colors rarely change. I actually got the vest one year and found the shorts in another.

    Kira Fashion: Thanks. Glad you enjoyed the movie!

    Akanizzle: Thanks for stopping by!

    LJ: I was fortunate to find this vest on sale too, for they sold out pretty quickly.

    Phenonmenal Aquarius: You can always count on red to jazz up the neutrals.

    Seeker: Thanks. I just love summer looks. I can do without the summer heat though 馃檪

    Diva: Right. I certainly always strive to maximize my preferences.

    Enc: Isn’t it insane? But, I kid you not. When the Gap Outlet is trying to clear its racks, it slashes prices.

    Trend de la creme: I appreciate you coming by!

    Danz: You can’t beat great prices on great pieces that you love. Again though that dressmaker of yours is something else!

    Fashion Addict: It does take some patience. I accumulate my ‘treasures’ over time. My favorite places to shop are Marshalls/T.J. Maxx. I also visit outlet stores. I scout great deals online, in resale shops,…I am always looking for a great deal.

    Aizat.cinta.goddess: Yes, yes, it sure is. I really wish the uniforms I wore to school were as hip as the trendy school looks of today!

    Imelda Matt: You know I did. Every woman in my family owns this top now!

    Style and the City: Don’t mention it at all. Thanks for coming by!

  16. June 11, 2008 / 11:44 am

    and one’s in the mail, heading to Australia?

  17. June 11, 2008 / 1:39 pm

    Secretista: I wish my office place was as hip as yours though 馃檪

    Chrysanthemum: Thanks! Hmmm…I’ll be sure to check out your coupon page before I make another purchase. Thanks for coming by!

    Imelda Matt: Darn! I just gave the last one away too. I got you the next time though.

    Fresh & Fab: Menswear is quite hot on women, isn’t it? 馃檪
