Pretty Collar On Sale

I dropped by Gap on 34th Street the other day, and was happy to find this blouse. You can't beat it for some ruffle trim:
It doesn't choke either. It's kind of the 17th century Dutch look (left, please) without the stifling, itchy looking collar. It's on sale for $29.99. And the grey skirt with the satin bow? $9.99. Look for these on the sale rack in the back.

And some extras:

I love this plaid skirt, on sale for $23.99. The black top that makes me look like a double wide is on sale for $20.99 & can also be found on the back wall, along with the basic grey top on sale for $9.97.










These short-sleeved jackets are $59.99. I'm not going to say they are great transition pieces, because if you work in an office building they are great anytime pieces. The long-sleeved striped top is $19. And the plaid...










No one who only has Irish men and women in her background should be wearing this yellow, but the ruffles are irresistible and it's on sale for $37.99. Cotton, not flannel.




This lone European Collection dress was found by the sale rack. I'm sad to say the EC is now available only online; this was returned to the store. It's a pretty and practical work dress that hangs big on me as it's an EC 12, so it fits like a 10. It's also $88, which was disappointing. I was hoping its proximity to the sales rack would make it $20.99.

It's really interesting how one top changes the look so much. I like you in both, by the way.

The plaid skirt is my favorite. I wish I needed clothes like that in my wardrobe.

All things you've picked look great, and you look great :)

Thank you so much my dear for your words of support, I'm feeling a bit down and I really feel touched by your so nice and kind words.
Thank you again.
Take care and be happy.

I'm drooling over that dress. And grateful for its prohibitive price tag and far-from-me location.

That gap blouse is gorgeous. Love the way you paired it with that skirt. Nice colour as well. Wonder if we have Gap in Australia. I don't think so...tragic.
