I bought more horizontal stripes! I'm still finding it horribly strange that I am wanting to wear something I hated and feared for so many years. My sister tells me that on a subconscious level I've become more confident with my body and want to accentuate its curves.
The Gap was offering 40% off everything in the store yesterday (45% for card holders) so my striped shirt was only $5.50. Today I wore it with my white knit jumper (the same one as the grey from my style challenge), grey tights and grey boots. I was hoping for some spring-like weather today so I could have worn my bright yellow flats, but I woke up to three fresh inches of snow!
I also picked up one of the floral cardigans - I was having such a tough time deciding between the purple, blue, or yellow! For $19 I could have gotten two - but I settled on just the purple.
When I was at the register, I noticed that the leather belts had been marked down to $10, so I grabbed the orange studded one and still made it out of the store only spending $30.
I think I would be really cute paired with the striped shirt and my grey skirt!
The sweatshirt blazers were there, but were still full price and even with the 45% of still would have been $35. So I'm going to hold out, though I wonder how hard it would be to DIY a sweatshirt blazer? Head to the thrift store, find an XL sweatshirt to chop up... I could probably do it!
Charlotte Russe was another store offering great deals - an extra 50% off clearance! I picked up a lace dress for $10 and a navy skirt for $5.50.
I was a little hesitant about the skirt, the material looks a bit cheap and youthful. With the right accompanying pieces however, I think I can make it work.
See, with the white blouse, already classier. Though it's a wrinkled mess from being in the bag and the flash isn't kind.
Good shopping trip though - I made it out of the mall spending less than $50!
