Lunch and Shopping and Chocolate Brown Dillians

I had lunch with some FAB tpf-ers yesterday and it was a lot of fun! We met up for sushi at Midori Sushi in Sherman Oaks. It was my first time there and I was pleasantly surprised. It's an eat-all-you-can sushi place and the quality of the food was not compromised. Granted I probably didn't get my money's worth but I think it definitely warrants a return trip.

After lunch, we headed to the Rachel Pally warehouse sale in Downtown LA. They had a great selection of stuff but if you have ever tried anything by Rachel Pally, you know how much the material clings to your body. Most of the stuff were also a tad too big for me but I still ended up with 2 tops and a cardigan.

Last but not least, we headed to Beverly Hills for some more shopping!!! I was actually a good girl - didn't buy anything although my list of wants just grew another inch. We went to Saks first because they were having their semi-annual Friends and Family event. We visited the shoe department (most of which were excluded from the sale) to check out what CLs they had in stock. Of course they had the Blue Suede Madame Claude that had me drooling, the camel and black patent decolletes that are my ban loopholes and copper VGs which I haven't seen anywhere yet. The shoe department was kinda packed, probably from shoppers taking advantage of the F&F discount.

Next stop was Barney's and boy was I in trouble there. They had my ban loopholes as well but in jazz leather (my first choice), the No Barres which looked so great on, the bone patent differas which I LOVE but I didn't have the heart to try on because my will can be weak, and these:

CHOCOLATE BROWN DILLIANS!!!!! These were my fave color for the Dillians and I was very much surprised when I saw them on display at Barney's. Even better, the display shoe was my size! Talk about kismet. I had to try them on and of course, I immediately fell in love. I didn't want to take them off but I did and gently put it back on the rack. They are absolutely amazing on but I am sticking to my ban. Aren't you proud of me?

Thanks L for taking pics! I'd love to hang out with you girls again!!!

Thanks Elise. I just can't seem to justify the price right now.... maybe if they make it to the sales...
