Wonderful narrative of the day...I enjoyed your words and the pictures...As usual your kids are adorable...I love your coat and the sweater...Great choices...Three cheers for college roommie and no kids to shop for a while...
Thanks so much for sharing...

Such a great report and I love the pictures. It sounds like an amazing time and your kiddos are too too cute!

I love that coat and we are sweater twins...I have the VC pinstripe sweater too!

Natalie, reading your description of the day makes me feel as if I were there with you--oh wait, I was! Thanks for getting all those great pictures. I think I only took one selfie of Angie and me because I get so caught up in the moment I don't think of snapping photos.
You are so beautiful in person with your perfect complexion and glossy dark hair. I loved getting to meet you. I'm so glad you bought the pointy toe flats; I wish my feet could wear those. The All Saints dress you wound up with is just perfect for you (although the other one was amazing too--I would have felt uncomfortable in it too). The cocoon coat is so incredibly stylish, and I know, it's the opposite of "creating a waist" but believe me, it really does work, and everyone will know that it's fashion fullness cut into the design and that you're not really solidly packed into it, lol! And I concur on the adorableness of your kiddos!

I forgot to say how fun it was to meet my birthday twin. And bj1111 in Queen Bacon Thief.

Claire, loved meeting you too. You are a sweet, sweet person with a kind, thoughtful and lovely disposition. xo

Great write-up and photos, I felt like I was there, and the new coat and dress are fab on you.
Claire looks fantastic in the leather jacket, and I hope she's wearing it in Arizona with the a/c blasting!

Great photos, description and finds! Sounds like a memorable time.

It was great to meet you, Natalie, brief though it was. And thanks for this recap: not only because it gives me a peek into what the other half of us did Saturday, but also just because it's a treasure.

Those are great pics! And I am smitten with the striped skirt/bag combo.

Also, super cute kiddies. So glad everyone had such a great time meeting up.

What a fabulous, fabulous write-up of your Saturday morning! It is so appreciated, especially as we all know what an incredibly busy lady you are. Thank you for taking the time to share these special hours with us - we are thus able to experience the event vicariously through you.

Wow, your purchases look FANTASTIC on you: the dress, the coat, the booties, the shoes,the sweater. I love it all and you look beyond fab!

It was great to meet you, and thanks for the detailed write up!

What a fantastic haul! You look amazing in your purchases - especially the cocoon coat! Thanks for the great write up. I felt like I was there with all of you.

I am sooooo laughing at the bacon thief. That is too funny

Your kidlets are all adorable. Great idea to dress them alike for a day out - I used to do that too to keep track of my guys.

Natalie, thanks so much for taking and sharing all those pictures!! I switched over to blog mode to see them easier.
You have got some great pieces and I am in awe of your ability to take your 3 kids around with you!!

Natalie, it was so great to meet you. I had so much fun with your kiddos and DD is so bright and an excellent artist. Loved her candy drawings.

Wow, what a treat! Thanks so much for sharing your special day with us… I LOVED reading about it and seeing the pics. So fun!!!

This was so awesome! Thank you for sharing - both in great words and pictures! This was such a treat for those of us watching from afar. It sounds as wonderful as I knew it would be... I'm so happy for the sweet connections that you made, and for your lovely purchases.

I loved the pictures, thank you for sharing. Your kiddos have grown so much... They are adorable. Hey, just wanted to say hi

It was so fun to meet you Natalie! Love all your treasures - especially loved that All-Saints dress on you!

What a fun recap, Natalie! I am so glad I got to meet you in person. Your children are too adorable for words! Love that photo of them in the windowsill. Your finds are fantastic. I'm so glad you got that fabulous cocoon coat from AllSaints--looks like it was made for you.

Natalie, you were the first Fabber I met in person so you will always have a special place in my heart! <3 It was such a thrill to see your beautiful children in person!

And I think your AllSaints coat may have been the Purchase of the Weekend!

Natalie-you are incredible. The kids are beautiful and you are a wonderful Mom. I was with Anna so I did not see the dress but you were kind enough to model it for us. You spirit is infectious and I am so glad I was able to meet you and the kids.
The co-bacon thief.

Thanks for sharing your great finds (I am especially in love with the eggplant coat and asymmetrical sweaters) and your description of the Seattle blow out. How awesome to have been part of the fun and now get to re-live it when you put on these special pieces. Your kids are mega adorable, too!

What a beautiful post from beautiful you! I will always remember your AllSaints purchases as we gathered around you, some seated, like we were at a fashion show all celebrating your finds. You did really well in one short afternoon.

Your children are adorable and I loved their outfits, too. How sweet your college roommate stepped in so you could share the afternoon with us.

I really liked what you said about Angie intuitively knowing what a YLF'er needs to augment their wardrobe. When you shared Kathleen's (K. Period.) question about what was missing from her closet and also when Angie told you what you needed for the next leg of your style journey, I made a note to myself to ask those same two questions when I see her in action again at a future meet-up.

Thanks again for writing about your experiences and I hope to see you again at one of these fabulous events. Your photos are wonderful and bring back all the good times.

What a wonderful trip report Natalie - so happy to see your pics and share through your words the fun experience. Thank you!
