Shop Goes the Monkey

The Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale started today.

I went after work and hung out with Wan, the Teen, and the Bean for awhile before I went on my personal mission to find an outfit for the wedding of Mr. Monkey's cousin this Saturday.

Wan and I got scolded (ok, I got scolded) for taking pictures in a teenybopper store.

I snapped this while the Teen looked at High School Musical 2 posters.

After I bid Wan and her girls adieu, I started my hunt for a dress. I got this little MICHAEL Michael Kors halter shift ($94.90 down from $159.50). It's hard to tell from my pictures, but it is a bright orange and hot pink print.

Then I got these cheapo Brass Plum shoes ($22.90!) that are extraordinarily comfortable -- not very cute at all, but utilitarian and perfect for dancing.

That's all, folks.

    "Did you know the Nordstroms Half Yearly sale started? My entire office left at lunch to go shopping." Glad to know my tax dollars are hard at work.

    2) Do you think that dress would be appropriate for a 3:30 wedding in Napa in July?

    3) You aren't planning on attending such a wedding are you?

    4) If you were, would you be wearing this dress?
