Give-Away: Retail Therapy

I need some retail therapy, how about you?

I’m just now recovering from last weekend’s disaster. As some of you might now, my phone was lost, then I discovered it was stolen – but only after I had recovered it. So, I was sort of a super sleuth, even though I didn’t know it. An explanation exists here.

While I would love to sit around and think of all the ways to exact revenge, sometimes the best revenge is living well.  And what better way to live well than to go shopping?  Plus, I have bigger fish to fry: I need to finish my outfit for the big wedding this weekend! One of my sweetest, dearest friends is getting married to her dream man this weekend, outdoors, in the afternoon AND the evening. So, I’ve chosen to go with an airy, classic navy pleated maxi skirt. But the top half? I have no idea…

If YOU can give me some suggestions (with pics or links!) of a great top to go with this skirt, then YOU could be the winner of a crisp, new, shiny $50 gift-card to The Limited!! (A big thanks to my friends at The Limited in Castleton Square Mall for giving me an extra one to give away after my awesome shopping trip last weekend!)

Post away in the comments section! I’ll enter your name in the drawing!!

What should I wear with this skirt? The top in the picture is not an option, unfortunately. Post in the comments and you could win: $50 gift card to The Limited

The Limited, unlimited.

If you’re a girl, then you know when you lose a bunch of weight and you get all giddy about being able to shop places you couldn’t before? Well, yeah. The Limited is one of those places for me.  Tiny little pants.  Tiny little tees.  All cut explicity not to accomodate my apple shape.  Now, they’re making their styles more accessible to all of us and bringing their new plus size line (eloquii), designed for women sizes 14 to 24, here to Indy at the Castleton Square Mall!

Yes, we still have a “plus size” distinction here in this wonderful world we live in.  Is that how it is in every country?  I imagine it’s worse in Europe.  Dear god; France.  Where a size 8 is fat.  But I digress…

I’m a shopaholic and I’ll shop anywhere once – and I’m a sucker for brands within brands.  The Limited‘s plus size line, ‘eloquii‘ promises to be “modern”, “young”, and “stylish”- all while respecting curves.  Damn, if eloquii is a man, is he single?  I know some single ladies that have check-boxes by those words on their wish lists.  🙂

The Limited is having an official Grand Opening celebration today through Sunday June 10th to celebrate bringing this line to Indy (at the Castleton Square Mall), where eloquii will be a store-within-a-store of sorts.  Check it out and let me know what you think.  I’ll be checking it out at lunch, searching for a dress to wear to the wedding of the year, and I’ll post my thoughts later tonight.

OH!  And – I’m going to give away an awesome gift courtesy of the nice folks at The Limited, too!
