Did you know you can summon a cab with your smartphone? After I shopped for fabric yesterday, I noticed there were no cabs to get me back. So after I'd walked several blocks with no sightings, I googled "taxis." Yellow Cab has an online thing where you type in your address and destination, and they text you back with the driver's name and ETA! Of course, they drive you crazy calling and texting to make sure you're in the cab, but what customer service! It took 7 minutes from the time I started till he got there - awesome.
And now, androgynous Dr. Fun, the drug rep:
I felt like Madonna in one of her music videos, except I'm wearing a shirt and not pearls.
Total cost of nicely constructed lined pants and jacket - $92. I love H&M!
And look at this black grosgrain ribbon they used for belt carriers and at the top of the waistband - isn't that sweet? (I totally needed a cute infinity scarf with this - would've jazzed it up.)
After shopping there, it's hard to justify buying clothes in Nordstrom (a pair of pants there was $168- I mean, really? The H&M pants were $35.) I was going to try Nordstrom Rack which is the "outlet" version, but it was too cold to walk all that way tonight. But hey, I made 3 fabric purchases and I finally found the perfect brown work shoe. I call this trip a success!
Back to Mobile tomorrow night after one more meeting. I'll be catching up with the family, so you people have a good rest of the week. (And Eileen - let me know if you want more info on fabric stores in Mobile and also where you shop in the New Orleans area.)
