Things I Bought Thursdays -- The Sale at Barneys is Freakin Killing Me Edition





First it was the sandals and the clucth, now I've fallen prey to this Vena Cava dress, which was was marked 70% off at that insanely good (dangerous) Barneys spring sale.

But did I need it? No. I clearly have no will power friends. I'm weak, sad... but I have to say, I'm kinda in love with the dress.

If you're trying not to buy so much, I'm a bad person to be commenting because I think buying this dress was a brilliant choice. So pretty.

it was meant to be! it looks amazing on you. one of those dresses you'll have for a very very long time I bet.

Joanna said...

Wow. 70% off at Vena Cava is an insanely good deal.

I'm sure you'll turn heads in that beautiful dress. You look seriously chic in it.

ugh, you and me both...when barneys decides to sale, it's serious business. i'm still jealous of that gorgeous clutch you got - such a find! and the new VC dress is awesome...definitely a must-buy at 70% off.

Laura said...

oh that is so GORGEOUS!!! seriously coveting that dress.

mb said...

The homemade necklace (weekend craft) and a deeply discounted frock... sister, I would say you rock to have scored such a find at Barneys. Do you think they do well in Dallas? With Neimans and all? Don't get me wrong, the sales are fantastic, but Barneys did make a run at Dallas a decade ago and failed. Fingers and toes collectively crossed for their success. We love the sales.

Roberta Jane said...

Totally worth the splurge - that dress looks gorgeous on you!

Blair said...

I have to say that dress looks amazing on you and is just beautiful!

It's an amazing dress though! I think you can definitely justify it.

Joslyn said...

mb -- i hope barneys does well in dallas...i'm with you, fingers and toes majorly crossed. NM always seems way more crowded, but i'm thinking barneys might have a more stealth customer.

wishful thinking!

simplesong said...

AMAZING dress. LOVE it.

Julia said...

But it's so, so fabulous on you! Are those three layers in the skirt, I see? How amazing!

Joslyn said...

julia -- yes THREE layers. so fun, no??!

Kristin said...

Weak schmeak. It's a beautiful dress, and you look great in it!

anotherfishinthesea said...

Love the dress. I am coveting it right now.

kc said...

The dress is FANTASTIC, but the moment I saw the necklaces I recognized them immediately and thought they were made for that dress -- You just didn't know it yet! See how the universe work?! You were MEANT to have that delicious dress!

Kotori said...

Oh, but what a dress... and won't it go with those new shoes perhaps? So, you had to get it, right??

I just succumbed to the Nordstrom's sale myself...

lauren said...

jeana sohn said...
