A Girls Day at the Mall

Today was a day for us girls to hit the mall.  I have been planning for awhile to take Maddie and Gracie to see "Ramona and Beezus".  I read all of the books back in the day, and I gave the girls all the books two Christmases ago.  Maddie was tied up in a Girl Scouts activity until 11:30, so it was just Gracie and me for bit.  We had lunch in the food court...

Then I taught Gracie how to smuggle cookies into the movie.  We met up with Maddie and their Mom before the movie started. 
It was really, really cute.  Since I read the books a hundred years ago I don't know how true the movie was to the book, but it was good.  I will say that I didn't picture the Quimby parents being quite this pretty...
and Uncle Hobart... yeah, I know I didn't picture him looking like this...
not that I'm complaining of anything!

After the movie, I parted ways with the girls and planned to "just run into Nordstrom".  They are having their Anniversary sale.  If you aren't familiar, the Anniversary Sale is the sale to end all sales.  What's so great about it is that it is all new Fall preview stuff.  It isn't dirt cheap, but it is certainly reduced prices.  I always purchase bras and Spanx (and sometimes a purse) for my Mom to give me for Christmas, but since I got bras so dirt cheap a few weeks ago, I was only intending to get the Spanx. 

Well, it so happens that I walked past the clothing section and stopped to look at a cute top.  This really nice sales lady stopped and helped me.  Then it was on.  This sales lady was to me what I am to all my friends.  She brought me stuff and helped me decide what pieces to buy.  I really like all that I got.  Check it out...

This navy blue ruffle tank really surprised me.  Didn't think I'd like it, but it's cute on!
The next two tops were on for 2 for $50!  Just one was $40, so of course I got two...
This grey one has beading all along the cut out areas...
and this one, I'm already calling it my Real Housewives of OC shirt...
I'm not sure that's a great thing, but I guess a little bling never hurt!
and because I would NEVER wear any of these without something covering my arms...
I got this black "sweater" with ruffles (it's really a thin fabric, not sweater-y)
and this one...

Here are the complete ensambles...



If you need a great sales lady at Nordstrom (Northpark Dallas), shoot me an e-mail and I'll give you her name!  She was great!

You have found some great deals. I have been steering clear of Nordy's! I just know I will find way to many cute things. Maybe if the hubs finds a job soon... I have looked online and I think I drooled a little.

The Nordies anniversary sale is love! I got some really cute Nine West bootie boots, and a similar sweater to yours. I got that black Olivia Moon ruffled front open drape cardigan sweater. I really like the pink one you got, I didn't see that one at North Park.

The OC shirt is missing the giant circle of rhinestones that sits right between your boobs...lol.

I love those clothes! I absolutely love those sweaters. I think we may have to visit with your sales clerk friend! So cute. We are taking E to see R & B when we get back. We have started re-reading the books and I'm pretty sure I never thought Beezus would look like Selena Gomez or be that old, but when I read books I'm not selling them to movie audiences in my head! So there you go!

I can't wait to take Caroline to see R&B. I loved those books too. Glad to hear the movie is good.

Love your clothes. I would give anything for a Nordstrom's. Their shoe department makes me so happy.
