Sale Plans vs. Purchases:
Last week five of us shared our sale wishlists, but once the exact sale details were out, plans changed a bit! I checked in with everyone to see what they really ended up getting at Express this weekend, and here's a quick breakdown.
Carylee is doing a full recap of her Labor Day weekend shopping haul on her blog today, so you can check out all of her sale purchases here! I won't spoil too much for you, but she did get one of everyone's favorite wishlist items and it's going to be a great piece for fall.
Rachelle picked up three items off her wishlist (first three items) plus the Feather Print Barcelona and a pair of girlfriend jeans. And if you follow her on Instagram or Snapchat (@pinksole_rach) you already got to see how she styled her Berry Plaid shirt in an OOTD.
After trying on or checking out all of her wishlist items in store, Skye decided that none of them were quite right for her. She had also just picked up a few things there the weekend prior (like her Diamond Print Portofino), so as of Sunday, she was sitting out the Labor Day Sale.

Erin mostly stuck to her sale plan of buying "all the Barcelona Camis" from the sale...but one little extra item from my wishlist ended up in her final shopping cart, too!
I stuck pretty close to my wishlist with my purchases, and the fact that jackets weren't included in the sale kept me from purchasing the Berry Moto Jacket this time around.
I popped in store on Friday to check a few things in person, but my store didn't have the Feather Print or the Wild Orchid Barcelona Cami for me to see. So I ended up ordering them, but Rachelle saw them both and said that the color on the reverse side of the Feather Print is very similar to Wild Orchid. I didn't notice that before I purchased them, so I may end up returning the Wild Orchid when all is said and done. I lined them up below for comparison and I think she has a point.
What's interesting is that the product label of the Feather Print says the reverse side is "Berry." Yet the Barcelona Cami on the far right above is "Berry" and it looks nothing like the "Berry" side of the Feather print. So confusing!
The in-store visit also prompted me to get the Pavé Turnlock Cuff Bracelet. I probably wouldn't have given it a second look online, but in person it's so sparkly and fun that I knew I wanted to wear it right away for my next night out. (The bracelets in the background of this picture are the same one I'm wearing and you can see just how sparkly they are in the right lighting!)
And since jewelry was Buy One, Get One 50% off, it only made sense to get another piece. My store didn't have the ring I had on my wishlist so I opted for the Pavé Coil Ring. And coincidentally, I ran into Noelle in store! We had an impromptu shopping session and she ended up getting the same ring!
In the wishlist post, three of us picked out a tassel necklace but none of us ended up getting it. That was another piece I checked out in store and for me, it was just too heavy and rigid. It didn't quite fall the way I hoped it would.
I realize my posting schedule has been a little unpredictable lately! I'm really just going with the flow of what fits in my real-life schedule for now. This week I'll post Monday/Thursday/Friday, and next week I'm planning get back to my slightly-more-normal Tuesday/Friday routine! Thanks for sticking with me!
