I'm not sure what I was more excited about: the fact that one of my favorite stores, Haus, was having a big ol' sale or that the cool silhouette postcard announcing said sale used the word gynormous. [sic] It's perhaps my most beloved adjective. I've been using it for years, not knowing whether it was an actual word, so today I looked it up on dictionary.com and sure enough, giant + enormous = ginormous. So there you go. Oh yes, the sale. For Christmas, my lovely husband gifted me with the most gorgeous plum-colored sweater from Haus, which unfortunately didn't fit. Even more unfortunate, when I went to exchange it, they were ,um, plum out. Instead, I got a store credit. (And by the way, how ridiculously cute is this gift certificate? It's a shipping tag that's been tea-soaked and stamped. So much better than the run-of-the-mill gift card.)
I went to the sale today hoping to find a sweater, but most had already been snatched up. (It was only 2 p.m., people! Four hours into the sale! Geez.) Then I ogled some Rosie NYC sconces that I've been lusting over for years, and will continue to lust over. I was just about to leave empty-handed when I spotted darling headbands like this one made from vintage handkerchiefs and buttons by Aubrey Hyde. Though not on sale, I had to have one. The sales clerk wrapped it up and put it in the most adorable bag, but it didn't stay there very long. Oh yes, I put it on right away, and I'm going to need more of these lovely, dainty accessories.
