Snow boots at Target for $35.99

This buy was practical and unpractical. Bought the boots because they are cute.

Women's C9 by Champion® Natausha Fur Trimmed Lace Up Winter Boots - Black
Great buy for me I bought the boots on sale for $35.99, no longer available on sale. Still available online now for $44.99.

I bought the boot socks wool $8 woman, pink. I hate the feet being cold.

Anthropologie Umbered Houndstooth Coat compared to Target Coat

While at Target recently I found a coat that looked a lot like a Anthropologie Umbered Houndstooth Coat, $298.

Coat at Target by Merona cost comparison is $69.00. 
The coat material looks more like the material of the Houndstooth, you cannot tell this from the photo by Target. The collar is detachable for the coat at Target. The problem with the coat at Target the pockets do not open up, which is sad (everyone loves pockets and does not want fake pockets). The coat at Target is light weight. Not for heavy winter wear, for our colder weather in the Midwest.
However, The coat is cuter than the photo shows and additional colors available at Target, gold and black. The Target I tried the coat on did not have the black, available online.

Review of Wisteria Halter Dress

Wisteria Halter Dress





Dress is really large, need to size down 1 to 2 sizes. However, the dress has vibrant colors.

I tried on the size 2, way too large. The saleswoman obtained a size 0 for me. Still too large. Maybe I would buy the dress deeply discounted or on ebay, would need to make the dress smaller for me.

I would suggest trying the dress on if you plan on buying.
Price, $148.

Inspired knitting due to Anthropologie- 3rd class

Knitting 3rd class

I  now know how to 1.cast on, 2.knit stitch and the 3.purl stitch, and 4.cast off.

Sometimes you can become lost with losing stitches, and it is hard to remember how to go back and do one type of stitch after you using another stitch.
Before I went to class, I did a swatch with a cast on, then a knit stitch and then a purl stitch (then a knit then a purl stitch) and I kept switching back and forth between the stitches. In the class then the Instructor taught me how to cast off the swatch.
Also found out how to measure the stitches, etc.
The instructor will try to show me how to pick up lost stitches next class. This will be the last class unless I keep taking additional classes the instructor might offer. Most likley I will keep taking classes for now.

Until my short 4 week course of Italian classes start.

That is all for now.

 Did see the Target Ad. They will re-introduce the designers dresses on March 13th. Selling the dresses for a short time.

Inspired knitting due to Anthropologie- 2nd class

2nd day of knitting class. This class went much better than the first class. Using circular bamboo needles, USA #10. Bulky yarn, went and bought different yarn still bulky yarn However, not fuzzy yarn (this was making it hard to see the stitches).And dark yarn also makes it hard to see your stitches, using white yarn this time.
I started again, figured out how to cast on and then the knit stitch my myself. Next class will start with a sample and practice the purl stitch and casting off.

I will try to post my start progress so far. My mother and I, we our taking the class together. Which is also a nice way of spending time with my mother and we are being productive. I also enjoyed the talking (spending time with other women in the class)

review update of shoes Frugal shoe shopping comparison

I have noticed that some shoes make a good comparison to Anthropologie shoes.
Designer shoes by Payless -compared to Anthropologie.

Stacked Window Wedges - $458.00
compared to Loreto Wedge $49.99, and Bolivar Wedge $49.99
Lela Rose for Payless
Big Price difference.

2-26-2011, review of payless wedge Bolivar Window and Loreto Wedge.  The shoes are so narrow that I went up to a size 11. Of course I really need a wide with. So if you have narrow feet the shoes will work for you. The shoes are cute, cute will not for me (too narrow) and my feet are too wide.

Pinafore Pullover and Tea's Ribbon Cardi by Rosie Neira has inspired me to try knitting

Today I went for my first lessons in knitting. Not easy to remember all of the steps to knit. However, you can tell if you practice you tell this will be a little easier to remember the steps. Casting on then knit stitching.Trying to make a scarf. We shall see?

The instructor has us using a circular bamboo knitting needles, #10 USA needles, with heavy weight yarn.

Selected a pretty yarn of many different varying colors of blues. However, this has fuzz which makes it a little hard to see if you made your stitches.

I then decided to go buy anther set of needles and some additional yarn to try that does not have fuzz in the yarn. However this is a heavy yarn.

That is all for now until next Saturday.


Inspiration started with the sweaters, (I have a long way to go) Photos of  Anthropologie's Pinafore Pullover and Tea's Ribbon Cardi by Rosie Neira below:

Review of clog boots from Payless, and sweater dress from JC Penny- I decided to wear the out on Friday to work.

I try to be frugal, and I have wide feet size 9 to 10.

The new clog boots "Mavrick Cozy Clog Boot", I bought from payless are a great deal on sale. Cheaper in the store than  online by a few dollars. Around $23.99 for the shoes (some of shoes are on sale now).

Dress JC Penney's $17.99 petite's medium -went with the medium as I am a pear shape, and did not want to wear anything for the hips/thigh area.
(received a $10.00 offer from the store and bought a pair of shoes flats for $11.00 not pictured here)
Had tights already.
