Anyway, this is what I wore! It was a cool day, in the low sixties. I didn't feel I needed a coat, so I just wore a utility vest.
I wore flats for practicality. Normally I'd wear booties when out and about this time of year, but the flats were easy to slip on and off for a quick errand. Plus, it was warm enough to still go with most of my feet uncovered.
I got a new hand bag. But I have to share the ORDEAL I went through to get it. Ya'll know I'm a big coupon/bargain shopper. Well, I got this coupon from JCPenney that showed a picture of this bag and it said if I came into the store on this ONE SPECIFIC DAY I could get this bag for only $20.00. Well, it's a cute bag, and normally $65.00 so I drove 45 minutes to town just to buy this bag (I did run my other weekly errands as well. I would never drive that distance just for a handbag.) When I got to the register the coupon only rung it for $20.00 off. I politely argued with the sales associate and he called the manager (who couldn't come to the register) and they refused to honor the coupon. They kept saying "$20.00 off" even though the coupon said "Liz Claiborne Bag $20.00". So I declined the purchase and left. But I was mad. I KNEW it was a technical error and I couldn't believe they wouldn't honor the coupon. So when I got home I contacted corporate and found out that I WAS RIGHT. The bag was suppose to be only $20.00. The store manager that originally refused to honor the coupon, then contacted me, and the next week I went in to get the bag. But guess what? The coupon still didn't work right and this time it came up for only $12.66! LOL! The cashier said "I'm not going to fight with the computer, so you can have it for that price." I replied "That's sounds fine to me. I'll take it considering how much I was inconvenienced." So long story short, if you have an unresolved issue with a store, contact their corporate offices!
I have been on the look out for a basic black bag for a few seasons now. I have other types of black bags, but not a simple, basic tote like this one. I also love the brown straps!
Here is my top without the vest. I didn't wear any jewelry because I was just running errands. I've shown you this top twice before HERE and HERE.
Everything I'm wearing is old except for the Liz Claiborne Elizabeth Tote and the Liz Claiborne City Fit Skinny Jeans.
So which way do you like this top better? With or without the vest? I can never decide.
What do you wear running errands? I'd love to hear from you!
Have a Great Day! Amy
