  2. I was looking at purchasing the shirrtail mini in wool yesterday. The website showed that the regular price was 88, the promo price was 78, and then there was the 25% off promo. I held out, hoping for free shipping and 30%. Instead, I refreshed the page and instead of paying 58.50 (pre-taxes and shipping) I would now be paying 61.60. Why? Because they now list the original price as 98, the promo price as 88, and the 30% off with no free shipping actually makes the skirt more expensive. I know it sounds silly to vent about a few dollars, but I don't want to buy it now on principle.

  5. While there are a few pieces I like in this last rollout, I am overall disappointed in the styles this season. I'm sure you all are tired of hearing me rant but where are the nice lined wool pants. I know not all of you like the capris like me but there's not any full-length wool lined pants either to speak of. The skirt selection is also dismal this season. I have not purchased a blouse skirt or pair of pants this season at retail. I just ordered the foulard Minnies but they are really for spring. Thank goodness I bought a lot last year!

  6. I don't even know why I'm surprised, but my one-week-old Factory Puffer coat mysteriously busted a seam. I've worn it very lightly three time!!
