Shop Til I Drop

DSC_8080
I always procrastinate when it comes to Christmas shopping and this year I vowed to get it done in advance.  Mission: Accomplished. My friend Courtney and I shopped together a couple weekends ago and both paired with an aversion to long lines, appreciation of quick decision-making and a mutual impatience, we quickly shopped and got the hell out of there in a snap. My kind of shopping!
It was a surprisingly warmer day where a cardigan and faux fur vest provided enough warmth and these Ninewest red heels added a little pop of color, but were comfortable to walk in for a day of shopping and an event that evening at Lori's Shoes.

Too funny, I was just thinking about how I MUST get my x-mas shopping done, and you definitley sound like my kind of shopper, man I'm so impatient!

And you look stunning (as always!!) Andrea, love the polka dots & fur, drooling over the patent leather heels - plus you rock accessories like no other. Hope your day is fab! xo veronika

Love every piece in this outfit!! Love the cardi with spots..Gwen Stefani wore a similar spotted sweater today (hers had a lot more polka dots). I like your cardi better though:-)

You know, as much as I love Christmas and I love shopping, the combination of the two always leaves me cringing. Glad you got it done! I am not even close. Gasp. And yuck.

Plus side? You look fab as always! Love the fur vest, the great polka dot knit top and those killer red pumps. Hello!

Love it! I've been searching for a faux fur vest that doesn't make me want to sneeze, because so many of them seem so stripperish and fuzzy, NOT furry. You pulled it off excellently here!
