Pretending to be photographers...and new clothes!!

Monday, May 16, 2011
If you didn't know already, Chase and I went to Sacramento for the weekend for his sister's wedding. We played photographers and took their wedding pictures...actually, Chase took their pictures and I bossed my SIL and her new husband around. I loved it.

Me and Chaserbug

The end result

Notice anything new and different? I'M WEARING ALL NEW CLOTHES!!!! This has never happened on Clothed Much before either. I just went shopping-crazy over the weekend. Chase didn't know who I was. Neither did I. It was fun for a little.

  1. thrifted Express white blazer, $3 -- Got it for 50% off! It fits sooo perfect!!!! I threw it in the washer to get the thrift store smell out and it came out all squished and crinkly :(. I read the inside tag and it said DRY CLEAN ONLY. Then I cried :''''(. Then Chase ironed it out and it looks as good as new!! I love irons!! and Chase!!
  2. JCPenney gold beaded necklace, FREE -- Yes, I still have a little bit of moneys left on my gift card. My niece said it looked like a Nerds candy rope. So I bought it.
  3. MNG by Mango sunnies were also bought with the gift card. I already had these from before. You can buy them here.
  4. green tunic thing from Target, $16 -- It was for my leggings. (See this post.) You can buy it here.
  5. Target black leggings, $20 -- It was for my tunic. (See this post.) You can buy them here.
  6. Fitzwell black flats, $75 -- My H&M flats were getting stinky and uncomfortable. They were only subs until I found some durable, comfy, wide ones. So far Chase doesn't think they're worth $75. Whatever, guy. You can buy these here.

  2.  My boyfriend also does not appreciate shoes that are over $50. To him, any shoe that displaces $50 is "a ripoff". Psh.

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE your outfits. You are beautiful and so is your husband. :) x

  3. Hey, we all need to splurge on a few pieces every once in a while...specially good shoes (like classic black flats)! My theory is, "if you don't spoil yourself every once in a while, who will?" :D

    The outfit looks great! Glad you guys had fun at the wedding! :D

  5. Haha your story about ruining your blazer was adorable. I used to ruin my clothes sometimes too by throwing silk into the laundry/ dryer. Sometimes I still mess up! But thankfully my clothes are forgiving..

  35. You must be good at being bossy because the picture turned out great, as I'm sure did all the others.

    This whole outfit is so well put together but I love the necklace I think it really polishes off the look.

  45. Yes! It felt so weird. I'm not used to it!!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Congrats to the bride and groom! Wow, you look a bit different and chic with your new buys. :)

  47. the fitzwell flats will be SO worth it -- i have a few pairs of fitzwell shoe's i've snagged from the discount site 6pm.com and i LOVE them. so comfy and they wear really, really well. (p.s. put these in your flats and wash them ON GENTLE when they start getting stinky. they will make shoes you wear sans socks last even longer).

  48. Lovely story + photos!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Dang girl you get a taste of being a boss, and then you go on shopping spree. Nothing wrong with that. I really like the tunic top, and the white blazer is supa fresh. Congrats to your sister and her new hubby!!

    ReplyDelete
  57. um, i absolutely LOVE this outfit...hands down my favorite! i just bought a couple blazers from my local thrift store and am so freaking excited about it, but yeah, dont love the thrift store stank on the clothes!

    ReplyDelete
  58.  I loooove your new outfit! So chic! I can't believe the blazer was only $3! It fits you perfectly! Your comment blew my mind a little bit - saying that it looks like Atlantic Pacific! I am hoping that's a good thing and not a "your'e copying her" kind of comment! I definitely didn't intend to copy, but she is one of my style icons, for sure! So a huge thank you if you meant it in a good way! ;)
