I thought I'd start a separate thread in case some people didn't see the results of my fabulous time with Angie (really, I'm still glowing from being with her, such fun and such great conversation!).

I absolutely loved everything I bought. I had several "forbidden items," which made shopping easy: no denim, no solid navy or black tops, no grey sweaters. These are all things I overbuy, and I have enough - more than enough. What I really needed were print tops, and - potentially - a jacket. We found 4 items that, as Lisap noted, all go together. I will note that I tried on about 10 other things -- many more than I would have on my own. Angie is very inspiring about seeking lots of options.

So here's what I bought:

Equipment blouse: my favorite item, the most expensive, but also the one that makes my heart sing. I adore this print. 
Chelsea28 jacket: a steal (especially after trying on a Veronica Beard!) with a fabulous plaid that is inset sideways at the back/waist, creating visual definition. Highly recommend.
WHBM tweed moto: incredibly comfortable (wearing it tonight) and a version of the tweed jacket that isn't too sweet
WHBM print sleeveless top: A great deal that I can wear with all of my jackets/blazers - I think this will be a workhorse.

I've also added the Find for the Boden dot top I am wearing tonight at work with the WHBM jacket (and dark wash JCrew jeans).

Now, I am on a strict shopping ban for two months at least; I have to, to recover from this trip (and the rest of February, which has had a fair amount of shopping). Help keep me honest! I'm going to work hard to get the most of my closet now.
