okay, i am all refreshed! just got back from an hour workout in the pool! one of these days i'll remember a ponytail holder, so i can get back into doing laps like i did when i swam for the detroit yacht club years ago, you know back when we did 20 laps for a warm up! LOL!!!
anyway, saturday i ventured over to edina, minnesota. also home to our friend, hospy, over at monograms & manicures. last year she recommended that i check out the galleria and 50th & france. so of course, that's were i went again this year.
if anyone else has any shopping recommendations around minneapolis, please share! thanks!
i've to the mall of america once, back in 1999 and haven't been back since! ha! ha! ha! anywhere else i could add to my visit next year?
anyway, while at my favorite store at the galleria i bought two of these leather photo albums from graphic image --- pink & green, of course!
epitome papers, almost forgot to post a photo of the store front:
...so fitting, right! love it!! HA! HA!
over at twill, i saw a huge table of ties that were a mess! so of course i had to go inside and check it out. turns out every tie on the table was marked down to $19.99! seriously?!?!?!?!! robert talbott, breen, hickey freeman, etc. --- HELLO! you know ties that range from $85-$150 and up!
i'm kicking myself now, because my husband and father have enough ties that i didn't buy more than one for each! darn it!!!
below are the two ties i ended up buying. the robert talbott on the left retailed for $125.00 and the hickey freeman tie on the right retailed for $85l00. can't beat 1st quality ties for ONLY $19.99!
hopefully, i'll be lucky and next year they will have the same sale! one can hope, right! LOL!
while wondering around the mall, i couldn't help but check out the black damier louis vuitton duffel below. black leather or in this case maybe vachetta trim with the monogram pattern...OKAY??!?! ugh, as much as i love louis vuitton i am NOT feeling this color combo!
what do you think?
oh well, i love this photo from one of their display windows:
....love the wallets as passengers, lol!
oh well, before i forget i wanted to post photos from another fabulous store called ampersand over at the galleria.
finally, here's a photo outside of melly. notice the lilly pulitzer SALE table! ha! ha! ha!
talbot's! couldn't visit minnesota without taking advantage of not having to pay sales tax on clothing!
can't wait to visit again next year!
