Sorry I've been MIA (2 days! hah). I had to drive from my in-laws' house in Orlando to my hometown of Ft. Lauderdale so I could leave my car with my brother while I am in China. Then, my dad and I flew back to Connecticut yesterday morning so I can spend 2 weeks with my mom and dad!
So yesterday as we are 30-something thousand feet above Maryland somewhere, my dad asked me what class we are flying to China. "Duh, dad. Coach. Its the government - you think they are going to spring for us and pay for First?!" Well - my dad told me he has MILES and will use them to UPGRADE US!! Yesterday I called our airline to inquire... gave the customer service rep our confirmation number, asked if there were upgrades available for our flight and asked how many miles we would need. We were just 5,000 miles short for the both of us, so I hung up to decide what to do. We could easily purchase the missing miles for about $200 and I wouldn't hesitate to do that.... except two minutes later when I called the airline again, this person told me the last lady I spoke with gave me incorrect information and right now there are no upgrades available. The first lady totally got my hopes up!! Trust me I was fine traveling coach because we are going no matter what.... but she made me think I was thisclose to flying first, so when I called back my hopes were crushed! Haha.
Apparently I can get on the wait list - the airlines like to sometimes hold out on the upgrades until the very last day - you know, to see if any PAYING customers (pfft!) want to pay for first class tickets, and when no one does, they release the upgrades. I'm deciding whether I should risk paying $200 for the missing miles, then getting on the waiting list and hoping like heck that an upgrade becomes available! If one doesn't, then its like wasting $200. What would you do? What should I do?
OK so onto my OOTD! Sort of - I didn't take any full body shots! but I'm wearing dark skinnies, as usual, and gold sandals.
Anyway I love the rich blue of this Ann Taylor top! I bought it a few years ago and its proven to be a good investment. And, I love the shade of blue especially against the pretty turquoise of my earrings. :) Different shades of blue look so pretty against each other. Next time I'll get a full body shot for you guys - I am trying to finish this post and get out of the house!
My mom and I are going to run down to Greenwich Avenue so I can bring my pants into Lululemon to get them hemmed. I also want to check out Madewell... I have a feeling they have cute summery clothes. OH and my mom read in the NY Times about a store called Fox's - apparently its a store that gets designer surplus, so they sell designer clothes at huge discounts! Hopefully I have something good to report back!!
Anyway I REALLY want your advice about getting on the waiting list .... what do you think? Remember if I DON'T get upgraded, I will have wasted $200. Opinions?!! THANKS!
Oh, also my mom and I are definitely planning to see a show in NYC... the last few times we have seen Wicked, Avenue Q, Rock of Ages, and my mom has seen Jersey Boys. Any recommendations for us?
