More shopping in Fort Lauderdale

I think I was very reasonable.  Yes, I did have to leave behind 2 pairs of shoes, all the hair products I purchased, my Jack Daniel's® Original No. 7 Recipe BBQ sauce, my skinny jeans for the curvy girl, additional jars of J.R. Watkins Apothecary Lemon Cream (HEAVEN! - review to come soon) and my new collection of Color Club nail polishes.  My suitcase was exactly the weight limit at the airport when I flew back: 50 lbs. I was so glad I left a lot of stuff behind.  Still, I believe I was reasonable.  Luckily, my parents are driving back and bringing back my goods this Easter Sunday :o)

And now, here is the rest of my purchases while I was on vacation (sobs because it's already over).  I got this nice summer dress for $19.99.  I thought it would be nice for the office.  Even if I do wear it with my whore shoes!   
Then I came across a little black dress.  Until last year, I only had two pairs of black pants and two blacks dresses: the cute little sleeveless black dress and the black evening gown.  I bought a Foxy Jeans black dress before the Holidays (love at first mirror sight) and now got a second little black dress.  I liked its simplicity and yet the multi layers had a light touch to it.  Like my Foxy Jeans dress and my skinny jeans, this one is a curve hugger.  I didn't buy those shoes for no reason, did I?  And at $15, the decision was not hard to make.

Speaking of shoes!  How does one resist those Puma flatsies?  Price tag was $57.90 before I received a 30% discount.  It was the last brown pair in the store.  My size.   SCORE!  I was also looking for black closed-toe shoes to wear in the office during winter; hence the pair on the right.  Simple, black leather.  Wear beautifully with pants or skirts.  Lucked out at $47.90 with (smiles proudly) the additional 30% discount. 

Last but not least, here is a picture of my Color Club set: Rebel Debutante.  I was surprised that these are supposedly professional polishes.  The red seemed to be quite streaky.  I need to try it again when I get them back.  I did not have nail polish remover (only one towelette) so I apologize for showing a different colour on each nail!  Even if the picture is blurry, the streaks from the red polish are obvious.  I swatched the colours in the collection from left to right.  I still need to swatch the last two shades on the right (pink and mauve).  I will definitely use the first one for french manicures and I just love the taupe shade!  The lilac is a sure favorite as well.  

It is definite: I am not a beauty blogger and more of a story teller!  I will post my review of the J.R. Watkins Apothecary Lemon Cream regardless.  A body moisturizer that smells this good for such a lengthy period deserves a post.
