I hope no-one else started a second part to this, if they did and I missed it I'm sorry.

I just have to do the snoopy happy dance. I finally got to Nordstrom's customer service and the dress and jacket I infamously bought in May were reduced by.....$330. Meaning that beautiful dress and jacket cost me a little more than $400, which I think is entirely reasonable.

Another heartfelt cheer for Nordstrom. They keep their promises!

Hooray!
I'm sure you'll enjoy the ensemble even more in the years ahead.

I love Nordstrom's.

woooo, thank goodness this thread has been continued because hubby and I have decided to renew our wedding vows on our 13th anniversary this October! We originally planned to do it on our 10th but then life happened, ie. had to replace my minivan AND his car. oye. Anyhoo, we'd like to make it for this October taking place at Baker Beach or The Palace of Fine Arts rotunda, both in San Francisco but will adjust the date if say the rotunda is booked. When we first got married I always wanted to have the wedding and reception under the rotunda but they don't allow amplified sound and I had to rent port a potties (yuck!) so it never happened. Now that it will be just us and our 4 kids, the rotunda is VERY possible. I have always liked the thought of a beach wedding and to have the Golden Gate in the background would be fabulous, but it is Baker Beach and with my luck I'll end up with nudists in the background along with the bridge. hehehe
I've been looking at dresses and here's my Pinterest board (http://pinterest.com/myhoneyhoney/vow-renewal/) of what I've found so far. This board basically tells you what I'm thinking but am open to other ideas.

I like all the dresses but my favorite is the 1st one - the sleeveless v-neck one. There are a few that I think are a little matronly...probably not the look you're going for.

Of what you've posted thus far, I like the first dress - as long as it's not too short - and the lace AP immediately below it.
You should look for something sophisticated - and not too "cute".

I also like the first one, so far.

Found this, it's very elegant and simple: http://www.neimanmarcus.com/p/David-Meister-Sequined-Shift-Dress/prod141930097_cat43810733__/?icid=&searchType=EndecaDrivenCat&rte=%252Fcategory.service%253FitemId%253Dcat936073 8%2526pageSize%253D120%2526No%253D0%2526refinement s%253D718%252C731%252C&eItemId=prod141930097&cmCat=product
Since it's October, you could do longer sleeves. This is gorgeous on, my daughter has it is dark charcoal: http://www1.bloomingdales.com/shop/product/diane-von-furstenberg-zarita-lace-dress?ID=556138&CategoryID=21683&LinkType=#fn=COLOR%3DIvory/Cream;;White%26DRESS_OCCASION%3DParty%26spp%3D11%2 6ppp%3D96%26sp%3D1%26rid%3D61

Is this the one you wore to the White House? That was gorgeous.

The model in the 1st link looks like she has scoliosis. Or terrible posture.

I went clothes shopping today. I spent over $350 even with a discount. The sales lady turns to me and says in a chipper tone "You saved $66 today!"

Um, not really... :shuffle:

The weird "model pose". You're right, that one is particularly awkward.

:lol: But, when you combine that with triple Bloomie points, it feels a little better. :D

:lol: Get anything good? I love watching clothing/makeup/jewelry haul videos on YouTube (at least most of them that aren't braggy), it's basically what I used to do with my mom and sister when I lived at home. "See I got this sweater!" "Ooh cute!" :D

The other day, I spent $80 at Kohl's and the "savings" was $245 :eek: :lol: Three sweaters, a pair of jeans, a dress, a towel and a shower caddy, all from the clearance section plus a 30% coupon.

I was mostly buying dress pants and tops for work. So nothing particularly interesting.

On the vow-renewal, I like the dresses from vintage and david's for MHH. We already know she's gorgeous and can wear strapless. ;)

I had to return my mom's birthday present to Anthropologie yesterday, too big. Unfortunately, at Tyson's Galleria that store is right next to the only Tahari store in this area. :shuffle: And they had a sale rack.

At least I only bought the beautiful white blouse at half price and not the other two tops that fit me. :shuffle: Everyone needs a good white blouse, right?
