I am an Anglophile

So, my alarm clock woke me up at 11:30am today -- I am almost certain that I would have woken up at 2:00pm had I not forgotten to turn it off last night. Without even getting out of bed, I checked my email and ended up buying this wool tartan miniskirt and crop tuxedo jacket, both from British label Sara Berman, for a grand total of $78. I know I sound like an overplayed commercial, but I calculated my savings and I saved $959 on Gilt Groupe. I'm thinking these structured schoolgirl pieces will be useful for a student who needs to get back to an intense and structured academic schedule soon -- I'm looking forward to reading The Iliad this fall!

I also needed a pair of rain boots for the East Coast. Here in California, I was able to get by without a pair, but I've experienced rain storms in the summer in New York City and I'm wary of what they're like in the winter. So, even though I've never been too fond of the print, I purchased a pair of thick Burberry rain boots and checked "buy rain boots" off my to-do list. I never liked wearing these clunky rubber boots, but I have a feeling I'll start appreciating them by winter.
