Last weekend my aunt, her bestie, and I took a bus trip to West Chester, PA. We had to be at the tour company at 5:45am. Yes, I had a cup of Jingle Bell Java coffee that morning! (From a local store, it is delicious!) We boarded the bus and tried to catch a few minutes of shuteye before the sun came up. We passed the time watching 27 dresses, and pretty soon we were at Rockvale Square! This is a cute outdoor shopping area that has the QVC Outlet store. I went into the weekend wanting something from Isaac Mizrahi, and bought nothing of his. :( I did find the most ADORABLE pair of blue suede wedge booties of his, but decided against those. (One of the regrets I have of this weekend.)
|Love these boots!|
Then, the three of us made our way over to the handbags. A little known fact about me: purses are one of my love languages. All three of us picked up a Bruce Makowsky purse, and two of us put it back. (Regret #2) My aunt's best friend bought hers, and it is lovely! Butter soft leather and chain straps, made this bag great quality.
|So, so, good!|
We crossed several lanes of traffic to get to Chick-Fil-A for lunch (#priorities), then we hopped back on the bus to travel to King of Prussia Mall.
If you have never been to the King of Prussia Mall, let me tell you; mall is HUGE! Like over 400 stores huge. We got dropped off at 1:00, then never left until 9:30. One of the highlights was getting to meet my aunt and cousin at the Cheesecake Factory for dinner!! While we were waiting the 2 hours to get in for dinner, we shopped around together and caught up with everyone! We ate, then we had to make the half hour walk to the other side of the mall to get back on the bus. That night, we checked into our hotel, showered, and quickly fell asleep.
The next morning, we woke up, got pretty, and ate our continental breakfast at the hotel. We got back on the bus at 10:45 to do some additional shopping at the mall. It was there I discovered the Peppermint Mocha from Starbucks. There will be several more purchases of that this winter season!!
|Mandii Fact: I collect pens!|
After our tour, we shopped some more at the studio store. I bought a beautiful Bronzo Italia ring, and some PooPourri. After that, it was time to head home!
|It is even more beautiful in person!|
We definitely had a fun weekend filled with family, friends, and plenty of shopping!
Have you ever been to the QVC outlet or QVC Studio? What about the King of Prussia Mall? I'd love to hear what you bought! Leave me a comment and let me know!
