I got these jeans for $80 including shipping. What amazes me about these is that they are the exact pair I tried to order from Nordstrom.com when they sent me the wrong item - except that they are the correct size! Initially when I ordered them on nordstrom.com they were about $120 and I had to order one size too big because they were out of my size. Then, when they arrived, they were not what I had ordered at all! So I feel pretty lucky to have scored these on giltgroup.com for such a great price and in the correct size. Plus, they are really awesome! I love the color and that they are plain, but high-waisted which gives them a funky, cool edge. I plan to hem these so I can wear them with flats, since I have another pair of high-waisted jeans already hemmed for heels.

I love the shape of this dress and the material (it's brown silk). I haven't been able to wear this dress for a year or so, because I gained too much weight. Now I fit into again! I can't wait till the weather warms up enough for me to wear it.
This needs my wide belt to both emphasize the waist and also to hold the dress up a little. I felt like it was falling down a little all day. On another note, these boots are thrashed already! The tips are chewed up, which I can live with, but I noticed today that one of the heels has a large gash in it. Probably from getting it stuck in a grate, although I obviously didn't notice when it happened. These boots were one of my first purchases after I started working for Nordstrom, so I've had them for two years now. They are Stuart Weitzman boots; high quality leather, very comfy and classic. I'm sad that I've let them become so beat up, plus now I have to go through the unpleasant experience of trying to replaced a beloved pair of boots!

The angle isn't the most flattering, but you get the idea...these are my new 'Lanky' jeans by Rich and Skinny. They are winners! Just what I wanted. I think they'll look really cute with all things tucked. Now I just need to get them hemmed up and the waist nipped in and tiny bit.

It might be difficult to see, but this top is actually a sleeveless ruffled top with a v-neck cardigan over the top. I love the top, and hate having to cover it up with a cardigan! the ruffles are too thick to put anything but a v-neck over. I have thought about experimenting with a button up white shirt or white elbow-sleeve tee under it, but I didn't have time this morning.

I am going to be purchasing this dress on the 20th, when there will be an employee sale on this brand at my work (Nanette Lepore). It is a great cut for me! I can't wait. I also tried on a silk Rebecca Taylor dress that fit great, but I felt like I was spending too much money...
