more awesome sales

Sometime last week I went poking around the Sale and Archive sections of Barbara Í Gongini's online shop and saw all sorts of great stuff at awesome prices. And to my surprise, when I stuck a couple of things in my cart, the prices went down even more. I didn't need much convincing to hit the pay button. This first piece I've had my eye on since she first launched it (a year ago maybe?) - it went on sale, I hesitated, it sold out, and then to my complete shock, it showed up in black in my size in the archive section. YES! (I could have at least put something on my lips)

This vest looked fun - I don't really remember seeing it before. It turned out far better than I had hoped. It's really thick, like a sweatshirt because it is lined, and is really soft cotton.

Oh, and totally boring purchase today that I am stoked about regardless...

WOW. Columbia pants. Not just any pants. WARM pants that are lines in some sort of super fleece. And they are fitted so not gross baggy old-lady pants that these can tend to be. These will be SO WELL USED come the cooler weather when I'm walking to/from work 2 hours a day. If you spot me on a sidewalk somewhere in the 'hoods of Civic Hospital, Little Italy, Chinatown or Centretown, I'll likely be wearing these. (And I'll likely be shouting "AM I THERE YET?!?!")

Very nice purchases. I am particularly attracted to the vest. The shape and the gather is fabulous. I know you said it was really thick but it doesn't look bulky!

Freakin' COOL. Barbara I Gongini's clothing suits you sublimely! How does the sizing compare to Rick?
I like the look of the Columbia pants. I've thought to do a post on some of my workout wear but am always hesitating. Hmmm, maybe I will.. :)

Thanks D & O!
Her clothes seem to fit "regular" folks as opposed to Rick's clothes which I always have to size up in. But hard to say because Barbara's clothing seems to generally be designed loose anyway.
And YES, you should blog workout wear. :)
