This maxi dress was one of my purchases a couple days ago at Forever 21. They were having a huge BOGO sale so this dress ended up being $5. Two things I learned about myself that day: 1) I hate BOGO sales because that means you HAVE to get something else and 99% of the time, the sales rack sucks, 2) I hate big department-like stores (but I already knew that. This just confirmed it.) I swear I was in there for two hours looking for another sale item so I can just go home!!! I am a fast shopper and two hours in one store was hell. But the frugal side of me wouldn't let me go home until I found something. (And I did. I got something for my nephew for Christmas. Seriously, SO adorable. I'm not going to tell you because my sister-in-law reads this and she might make a peep.. ;) LY!)
I'm wearing a SLiM Motif beanie (courtesy of SLiM Motif - her shop isn't open anymore but try convoing her because I seriously LOVE this hat!!), Forever 21 maxi dress ($5), thrifted Talbots blazer ($4), Old Navy belt ($10), and flats from the Philippines ($7).
Thanks to all you guys for your help last night on Twitter!! I ended up buying this drapey sweater, these man pants, a gold necklace, and two teacup mugs for me and Chase! And I still have $10 left!
To celebrate this joyous occasion of my first purchases at Anthropologie, we went to an Italian restaurant. Chase got some risotto thing and I got ravioli with pears. It was super delish...as you can see by my half-eaten food. Totally not gross, Elaine.
