50% off + Free = Awesome

Monday, November 29, 2010
My parents just got here last night from spending Thanksgiving in Vegas. YES. Apparently, Vegas celebrates Thanksgiving...and Koreans are only invited. I didn't get the memo. I guess I wasn't Korean enough...or maybe it's because my boyfriend is 6' tall....or white. Whatevs.

I bought myself this gray shirt on Black Friday. It was 50% off + free. And you can't beat that. We also bought some towels because we're grown up now.

We've all seen this skirt-belt-shoes combo but I still gravitate towards it in the morning. Sometimes I feel pressured to wear something different because I'm a fashion blogger, I guess, but then I'm like "No way." The end.

  1. goodness, i LOVE that shirt. and the pattern mixing is unexpected and different than your usual and yet works SO well because of two subtle patterns in neutral colors.
    i'm cracking up about the vegas thing.
    sending you a hug today! xoxo

  3. I never get tired of seeing that skirt and I envy you for not giving into the pressure of always feeling like you have to wear something different! I don't even take pictures of repeat outfits (probably why I haven't taken many pictures lately :P )

  8. it's okay, i wasn't invited to Vegas either...probably cuz everyone thinks I'm Chinese. Or because my husband is 6' and white also. no worries, you look stylish as always! i love that your mixed the prints together, and the trench is very chic.

    happy holidays!

  20. I love that you re-wear your clothes. So does everyone else. Nothing to be ashamed of. Plus, your clothes are too fabulous not to re-wear.

  21. You're really spending that $1,000 gift card. I thought you were saving it for something else. Oh well, at least you're picking out great pieces at great prices :)

  26. Not gonna lie, there definitely are a lot of Asians in Vegas!

    I'm pretty new to fashion. (Well, I've always tried to stay trendy but recently I'm just starting to experiment with it.) I have no clue to how to math colors and prints. I would have NEVER thought to pair these two pieces together. Yet, they look so adorable. Any quick tips or advice on pairing prints/colors?

    ReplyDelete
  27. this combination is very, very original... and I love the skirt

  29. Great new shirt. And I so understand the need to wear something new in a totally new combination. I need to remind myself that is not why I started the blog.

  37. I spent Thanksgiving in Vegas! Don't remember all the Asians, but we only went to the strip once. Funny.

  38. Thanksgiving in Vegas sounds like a great time! Love these tights, such a great print.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I'm heading to vegas for new years we should meet up! Thats an official invite lol I love how you mixed the patterns with i was brave enough! And you have to post how you made that skirt just the other day i found curtains in my basement that i think would be a super cute skirt.

    Thanks for the awesome post!

  40. I think your skirt has inspired me to make my own skirts. It's so difficult to find cute skirts that are knee length or longer! And I love the different textures in your outfit - those tights were a good touch!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I love this unexpected pattern mix -- and there's no shame in the belt-skirt-shoes combo (though my husband has often asked if that's all I ever wear!). Loved your Vegas story -- what a weird, weird place it is. Last time I was there it was at a women's health conference... which was hard to jive with... everything else that was going on.

  42. You always look so classy and feminine in your outfits. I love you pattern mixing here!
