99% off!

i almost hate to say this, but there are still lots of good sales going on, and lots of good things to find on-sale.  this certainly does not help with one’s closet-culling project!

but claire, queen of thriftiness, hit the jackpot in san francisco a few weeks ago.  she showed up sporting a lovely eileen fisher jacket made of silk and linen.  it had the most interesting kind of soft and crunchy texture, and was quite flattering.  and guess what?  claire purchased the jacket (at jeremy’s in s.f.), originally priced at $350.00, for the astounding price of $3.50!  yes, that’s a 99% discount!  have you ever heard of such a thing???

omg, did esme ever wish to run right up to the city and shop!  however, that big sale is over, but esme hopes to get on the mailing list for the future.  the shop is in south park, where the noir’s used to dine at the south park cafe.  a little sportshopping, a little french food, a little people-watching—now that would be a pleasant outing!

in the meantime, esme has found a few things herself, although not at 99% off (if only!).  here’s an outfit she wore the other day to showcase graphic black and white blouse by blanque that she found on the sale rack at pacific rim.  the surprising thing is, esme figured this would look good with ALL her black pants, but she and mr.noir decided that the really wide ones didn’t work.  and it became evident that esme actually does not possess a single pair of so-called “normal” (that is tailored, maybe gabardine) black pants.  does she need a pair?  well, most of us do, but esme has gotten along just fine without them for perhaps the last 15 years.

so, get out there and scavenge before it’s too late!  and btw, madrigal, a latecomer, starts their winter sale on jan. 20.

still shopping,
