Shopping with Cavewoman Adventure 2-26-2005:Major Damage at both MAC counters along with some scent stories.....
Cavewoman and I finally were able to leave ytown and get some shopping time in Cleveland. Our first stop was at Anthropologie. They had their new spring line showcased and I was not interested in any of these pieces in real life. I did love the one party dress that is teal and midnight blue. It was the best piece in the store. The "cucumber sweater" was on sale but it looks horrible on. No wonder there were 3 or 4 on the rack. Cavewoman tried on a great coat but the fit was poor. There were 10 of those coats on the rack. They will have to mark that down more for it to start get any interest. I end up buying some Voluspa frgarnces. These scents are great and the prices can not be beat. I repurchased the Linden Blonde Tabac and the sweet Mignonette. Do not try the Coco one. It is foul and will make you dry heave. I did not spy any Nanette Lepore pieces while there. We left and made our way to the infamous T J Maxx. It was a bust for me but cavewoman found some lovely sweaters. I did find the famous bergdorf pieces mixed in the racks. The velvet Marc Jacobs jacket is still there along with the Valentino gown. There was a gaggle of Armani pieces along with an Escada gown that had clearly seen better days. They had several boxes of the Paula Dorf Zita perfume. This really is a great fresh rose scent.
After T J Maxx we went to Beachwood Mall. We started at Nordstorm first. Cavewoman and I did some major damage at the MAC counter. I purchased a lot of shadows. My haul was:
Greensmoke(this might be my new favorite green replacing my previous love for Nars Fiji)
Gorgeous Gold(a gold with a greenish base)
Moth Brown(a lovely blue based gray brown--it is a limited edition)
and the surprises of Aquadisiac(a shimmery teal),Metamorph(a light greenish yellow) and Pink Papillion.
I also grabbed the new Madame B lipstick(a beautiful pink) and a MAC paint(I forget the name). I also purchased a lovely YSL Limited edition called Roses Enchantees. We were able to test the new Angel fragrances. They are winners. I love Angel but cavewoman hates it. We were both early fans of all the three scents. The violet one is the best with the lily coming in second. Cavewoman felt the peony turned green way to early in the drydown. They are worth sniffing. I ended up purchasing Une Fleur de Chanel at SAKS. We had a great time talking like Karl Lagerfeld to the sales associate. I spotted a great LV bag and got to see the Guinevere(small version) purse. It was alright. I liked the Carmen bag better.
It was a great day and can not wait to see Miss Cavewoman's version. Have a great Sunday!!!
