We finally got out to do a little Christmas shopping yesterday at the King of Prussia Mall, which I believe is the largest mall in the United States. My Fitbit would agree with that conclusion. My husband and I logged in almost 10,000 steps in our few hours there. The mall was beautifully decorated for Christmas and was surprisingly crowded for a weekday.


The mall has one section that is very upmarket, and another section for people like me with shorter pursestrings. Still, I held my head up high as I browsed Michael Kors, Gucci and Saint Laurent Paris while wearing a thrift shop top and jacket! At Louis Vuitton, people had to wait outside for the door to be opened for them and to be escorted into the store.


I did find a good sale at Chico’s and bought a few tops for myself. Yes, yes, I know I was supposed to be Christmas shopping for other people. But I’ve been a very good girl this year!


I wore this pink top with jeans and a corduroy jeans-style jacket. The jacket has spandex for stretch, so is very comfortable.


Since I’m very scarf-challenged (I never know how to wrap the darn things), I like wearing ones, like this that have attached jewelry.



I did get quite a few gifts, and was also happy to find a Lush Cosmetics store. Has anyone else just recently discovered Lush?  I was given their Ocean Salt scrub as a gift from my daughter-in-law and now buy it for myself to use every day on my face. I have a problem with red skin which can sometimes be very sore on my chin and around my nose, and the Ocean Salt is very calming and helps keep it under control.



How is everyone else doing with your Christmas shopping?

What I Wore:
Christopher & Banks corduroy jacket (thrifted $4.00)
Grace Dane Lewis top (thrifted $1.99)
