Best.Shopping.Ever

Recently I went on a girls trip to Ft. Lauderdale.  The purpose was primarily for a little retail therapy but also to get a little sunshine.  Snow and cold temps are ok around Thanksgiving and Christmas, but after the holidays I’m ready for some sunshine.  Being stuck inside is a bummer.

So four of us decided to take a little break and fly down to Ft. Lauderdale.  We got a super cheap airline ticket and headed down south for a couple of days.  We also fit in a little fine dining and fun, but I’ll share that later in a separate post.

Have you ever visited the Outlet at Sawgrass Mills?  I had been there but it was several years ago.  Wow has it grown!  It’s like a whole city of nothing but high-end shops and restaurants!  Trust me I know how big it is because I walked the entire mall to get to a particular store.  There’s outside, inside, back and front shopping.  Neiman Marcus Last Call, Saks Off Fifth, Bloomingdales Outlet, Century 21, Gucci, Valentine, Prada Hermes, Montcler, I could go on and on and on.  Here’s a link if you’re not familiar http://www.simon.com/mall/sawgrass-mills

You may know that Neiman Marcus Last Call is my favorite store.  It’s like a treasure hunt every time I visit.  Sparkles from across the room caught my eye.  If I was a fish I would probably be caught about every day!  I walked over and saw the most beautiful dress.  It was absolutely something to behold perfect for the Oscar ceremony this weekend!  Have you ever seen an $19,000 dress?  It was over the top and awesome!  The dress was 65% off the lowest price which made it certainly more reasonable.  Unfortunately, it was a size 4, which was absolutely a no-go for me! Check it out.

The photo doesn’t do the dress justice.  It was fabulous. Even though I wasn’t able to squeeze into the above dress I was able to find some great things.  You might see one at Derby this year!

Happy Shopping! xoxox
