NEW FEATURE! I Adore The Store: BLOOMINGDALE’S + First Giveaway Winner ANNOUNCED!

December 12, 2013 in I Adore What I Love

So it’s no secret that I am an avid shopper and lover of the stores.

While my husband wishes that I would cut back on the addiction, he secretly knows that in reality, that’s never going to happen.  I mean, he was well informed of my problem, I mean, passion, for fashion prior to asking for my hand in marriage, right?! RIGHT!

ANYWAYS.  I just can’t help my obsession with finding the perfect classy-and-trendy-yet-sexy tops, pants, jeans, dresses, shoes, and bags, amongst other things, in all my favorite stores.

With that, I thought I would create a new monthly feature on my blog and dub it as “I ADORE THE STORE!” Every post with the title will primarily focus on cute pieces that I’m currently obsessing over at the particular store that I’m showcasing.  And you’ll invariably see a mix of high and low cost items because that’s just how I roll =)  I’ll start with Bloomingdale’s since after coming off of I Adore What I Love’s first birthday where I decided to raffle off a $25 gift card (see the post here) to the one and only famous department store, well, it’s only fair.

But before I continue on, I don’t want to make you wait any longer:
NANCY N!!!!!!!!!
Congratulations, Nancy!!!!

And a BIG thank you to everyone who entered into the giveaway! It’s my hope to do a bunch more over the next year (and beyond) to come so be on the lookout and spread the word!

So back to Nancy- congrats again on winning the giveaway!  Obviously you can shop for WHATEVER strikes your fancy but since I adore the store more than you will even know (and know it like the back of my hand), you might want to put your gift card towards one of my favorite picks below!

I hope you all love this new feature as much as I enjoy putting it together!  Thought I would mention, too, that I plan to showcase different types of stores every time I write a future post for this series.  Today was all about a big department store but next may highlight a small boutique that you’ve never even heard of.  It’s always going to be different and I’ll ALWAYS be truthful with my honest opinions. Obviouslyy.
