Richmond Trip

I love Richmond. The more I travel here for business, the more places I find to go after meetings.

Last night I went to Hancock fabrics on Midlothian Turnpike. I found some black crepe fabric to become a dress using the recent Simplicity pattern. They sell KS patterns, so purchased two of them. They also sell DVD's and I purchased two of the Palmer/Pletsch DVD's. I then had dinner at a new Chinese restaurant in the same strip center. It was the best Chinese I have eaten in a long time. They were having a grand opening and I truly hope they do well as I plan to eat there again when next I am in town.

Tonight I went to a mall called Short Pump Town Center which is a suburb of Richmond or it is to me. They have Nordstrom's, Dillards, J Crew, J Jill, Chico's etc. All of the stores we do not have in Roanoke. I was able to acquire two Kasper three piece suits on sale for $89.00 each. In RTW and in petite sizes, Kasper is the best fitting garments on me. They were regularly priced at $280. I am doing my part obviously for stimulating the economy. I will get tired of the suits before I will ever wear them out.

The great part about this shopping adventure was the window shopping. I saw so many sleeveless blouses with ruffles just like this and this. Plus numerous other garments similar to numerous other patterns in BWOF.

Time to shut down now, early meeting tomorrow. Then on the road back to Roanoke. Weekend is in sight.

  2. Kaspar suits, when I wore them to work and for job interviews, years ago, were the best for petites. I had a beautiful one I bought on clearance for an interview suit in navy with a very subtle plaid that had tiny gold, purple and green threads. I had the prettiest gold shell (not metallic) to wear with it and high navy heels. Back when I wore a 4, not a 14...
    I also miss a good Chinese restaurant!
