Splendid Warehouse Sale!

It’s a wonderful week–my kids are back in school and the Splendid/Ella Moss warehouse sale is this weekend!   If you’re unfamiliar with these brands, Splendid and Ella Moss can be described as upscale contemporary sportswear. Everything is very casual but the fabrics are super duper soft and luxurious.  Average retail for a top is about $60 & up at a department store but at the sale, it’s $20. This is how some of the items were priced at the last sale.

If you want to alleviate some guilt for shopping, buy something for your kids. They have kids and men’s clothing as well. There are no dressing rooms so plan on pulling stuff over what you’re wearing. Parking is $10 in the building or there is metered parking, which is $4 an hour. Happy Shopping!

Hudson Sample Sale


If you’re a fan of Hudson jeans like I am, this is your lucky week!  Hudson’s sample sale is here again for 2 days.  The sale is very well organized and the best selection is on the first day.  At the last sale, the seconds were $40 and regular production was $60.  By seconds, they mean there are slight imperfections and/or irregularities.  I picked up 3 pairs of seconds for the price of one at full price and I love them.  I never noticed the difference.  You do have to know your size and fit though because you cannot try anything on so stop by Nordstrom and try on a couple of pairs before you go.

Sand Sculptures

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The 82nd Great Sand Sculpture contest is this weekend, August 16-17 at Granada Beach in Long Beach from 10 am to 4 pm.  There will be sculptures built by professionals and sculptures built by amateur groups.   The event will also include a kid’s zone, arts and crafts, vendors, live music, and food on both days!  Viewing all the sculptures will probably take about an hour or less.  Pack your beach gear because the kids will inevitably want to splash around in the waves.  When we went last year, being the prepared mother that I am, my kids were soaked from head to toe when it was time to head home.  I didn’t even have a towel.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
