Monkey See Monkey Do



I've been looking for the perfect black dress, so when I saw this on Sacramento Street I knew I had to have one.


Don't you love how slouchy it is? And you'll never, ever guess where it's from? Give up? Talbots!! No I am not kidding!! I couldn't believe it!! I put on dark glasses, a wig and went right over to the store. It is conveniently located 1/2 a mile from my house and in 6 years I have never been inside. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. It wasn't scary at all. Of course, they didn't actually have the dress, so I had to order it.

I ordered it in black and it showed up on Friday and was just as good as I had hoped.


I can't wait to wear my new dress with my boots - which I am loving!! In fact, I like the dress so much, I may order it in another color...I know, crazy talk. Why don't you get one too, here. You deserve it - at least that's what I told myself. And it's on sale. Go on, be a good monkey and order one.

  1. Let me borrow your wig and I'll go check it out.

    I went in a Talbot's this summer, but it was in another state!

  3. You're hilarious. I haven't been in Talbot's in years, but I think I need to return. Don't they have someone fairly hip in their ads now like Julianne Moore or Demi Moore or somebody like that? That dress is too cute. I am a good monkey so I'm on it!

  4. So the person on the post wasn't the gal from Sacramento street but Dallas native Joslyn Taylor of Simple Lovely fame. (doing a guest post)

    Generally speaking, I think that Joslyn would rather poke her eyes out than be known as a Talbot's shopper. Just guessing.

    Lovely dress in black... it will a dress up or down option in your closet.

  5. Talbots, who would have thought!?! I've been eying a sale dress on the website for awhile, and was pleasantly surprised when I've ducked into their stores. Pretty effective revamp of the brand!

    The dress looks great on you!

  8. Um...I want.

    My mom is a freakishly loyal Talbots shopper and has been trying to buy me "cute cardis" from there for years.

    Now I'm going to go eat my words and buy that dress. Of course I am not going to tell her.

  9. The marketing dept. at Talbot's should be reading this! I think Talbot's has been working over the last few years to present a more an "on trend" image. Although as a woman in her late 40's I'm frightened to go in there. Ans I'm supposed to be their target!
