retail therapy

Today R and I went downtown to look for a special occasion dress for her. Oooooh la la! Okay, okay, I’ll tell you if you really insist –  the special occasion is her son’s Bar Mitzvah.

The day was chock-full of some of my fave things: deep detailed discussions about what shoes with what dress, being treated like royalty at Neimans, (we got iced tea! in the dressing room! served to us on platters!) scoring a few snag-worthy items on sale, and topping it off with a delish lunch at The Rotunda. Not bad for a couple of Swagger-Wagon-Driving-Soccer-Slash-Baseball-Slash-Basketball-Moms playing hooky!shop til we drop!



shop ’til we drop!

While our shopping excursion afforded me a much-needed “Cancer Free” day,  I did want to provide 2 new updates on the CJ front:

1. MRI Results: Came out clear. This is really good news and while we still don’t know with 100% certainty that there is nothing hiding behind my TTT, this is as good as it gets. For now. Total yay.

2. BRCA Test: Negative. I repeat: I tested negative for the Breast Cancer gene. Even bigger total yay!

Oh – and what does one wear for an all day shopping trip in the city?

Mother Runway Skinny Flare, (@ Kismet), Feel the Piece black top (@ Nicolette), Joie trim tweed jacket and Rag + Bone Newbury booties.
