Obviously this is a fashion blog but I like to take opportunities where applicable to talk about more serious issues. Today is observed as Veteran's Day since it was technically yesterday. Although the meaning of holidays sometimes gets lost on us in the midst of shopping sales, days off from work, etc. I want to acknowledge today. My little brother is serving in the Navy right now and I am very proud of him. Thanks to all our servicemen and servicewomen -- not just today, but everyday. You are appreciated.
I did more shopping than I wanted to this weekend due largely to all the "friends and family" sales going on. I passed on LOFT a few days ago but decided that I needed two items. I picked up this floral pencil skirt and this scarf. I love the autumn colors of the pencil skirt -- golden yellow, magenta, pumpkin orange! And I love the blue leopard print of the scarf. I was able to get the 40 percent off "friends and family" discount, which is still going on today if you want to take advantage.
What do you think? Anyone have these items already?
