A Little This, A Little That...

Love This...

And This...

Absolutely Stunning...

These Too...

So of course I have to ask what you thought of the latest episode of Downton Abbey. As always, I enjoyed seeing the costumes immensely, but the more episodes I watch, the more I feel as if I have to 'fill in' many of the storylines myself. It's as if they are trying to tell too many of the characters' stories in each one, so that none of them gets enough time to be told properly. I would have to go back and watch Seasons 1 and 2 again, but from what I remember, it didn't seem to be that way in either of them. What are your thoughts?

On a shopping-related note...

I shared with you earlier this week that the Knit A-line dress from Brooks Brothers in currently on my wishlist. Well, there are a few other things there that I quite like, as well...

Large Calfskin Satchel in Black and White.

I've mentioned before that Black and White is my favorite color combination (along with Pink and Green), so I was delighted to see this bag done in Black and White. Granted, I'm not delighted with the price, but Brooks Brothers does end up having really good sales, which would make the price more appealing eventually. Btw, the bag also comes in a Navy-Red-White combo, as well as in Cognac.

Wool Stretch Dress

How lovely is this? A classic piece in a modest length that will last for many years to come, plus it happens to be on sale right now, too!
The Burnished Calfskin Driver Shoes, which also come in a similar style and fun color of green which you can see here. Another adorable shoe which comes in multiple colors is the Calfskin Spectator Sandal which you can see here in Navy, here in Red, and here in Tan...which color is your favorite?

There are many more items on the site that I am quite fond of, but that may just need to be a post of its own for another day. In the meantime, I do want to let you know that there is currently a great sale going on at Brooks Brothers with many lovely items at up to 60% off. Click here to shop the sale, and take a peek at my picks below:

*Wool and Cashmere V-Neck Dress

In other sale-related news...

I shared yesterday that J.Crew, Madewell, Banana Republic, and GAP are also running good sales right now with savings up to 40% off. You can see more details and my personal picks for each store in this post.

As most of you know, all of these great winter sales mean that the Spring 2013 New Arrivals are now being debuted at various retailers, and I wonder what your thoughts are on this? I know that many of you are still experiencing freezing temperatures, so do you enjoy looking at all the spring offerings, or would you prefer that they not be shown until closer to March? Do you ever go ahead and purchase items in advance now to wear for spring when it does come, or do you hold off buying until the weather warms up, and you can actually wear your purchase?

So what are your plans for the weekend? I will be hitting the market to restock the pantry and frig again, attending church service, grading schoolwork, watching Downton Abbey, and hopefully going out for a 'date night' with my hubby.

That's it for now...I hope you all have a lovely weekend! Do you have anything fun and exciting planned? Just going to relax at home? Please do share! I always love to hear from you! :)
