I finally faced my fears and headed to the premium outlets. “Fall fashion here I come” type deal.
Tory Burch, has moved a bit further up my list of places I like. It is, for sure, one of the busiest places in the outlet, one needs to battle a few fashionistas, in a so called “fight for flats” but it’s normally worth it. A few months ago I did get a pair of the famous Tory Burch flats (Brazilian made) and had to skip on a matching Chinese bracelet, but as of this Saturday, I am the proud owner of an even cuter bracelet, made right here. Wow, so excited. Brown leather, double wrap with gold emblems.
Made in USA heaven, also known as New Balance, didn’t let me down either. Pink sneakers for me, yes please, the deal; 32 bucks! And who knew, even the paper bags are made in USA.
I did have to compromise on quite a few fine-knit sweaters (my favorite thing). Banana had a grey one with a red Vespa, Nautica had stripes and anchors, J-crew had some cardigans I really liked. But I passed. I did splurge on an imported sweater from Tommy H. Sure, I don’t like spending lots of cash on imports from the east but a girl’s gotta wear something. That something might as well be a soft, off white popover with faux-leather details from Philippines. Perfect for cold days in the office.
Despite all this success for me, my husband (also an active member of the not made in China challenge) still managed to come home with more shoes and tops than I! How does he do it?!
