We ended up getting a creamy crochet-lace dress from H&M and I cajoled her into belting my leopard scarf over it to dress it down. She isn't sure her peers will be accepting of a belted scarf, but I assured her that everyone cool on the interwebs has done it. I'll post a photo if she lets me!
As for me, I must note that I did give myself a budget for the remainder of August of $40, and while I was trying very hard not to, I did make a few purchases at the Mall.
A pair of sunglasses, nearly identical to the pair I've been stealing (I mean borrowing) from my Sister from Aldo, on sale for $8.
And then I went into Old Navy and happened to see the exact striped shirt I've been looking for, with stripes that don't go all the way to the top, and I did have that 30% off coupon, so the top was only $11 - which met my criteria of being under $15!
And that is all I bought! Saturday morning I went to an antiques fair and spend three hours hunting table after table, looking for any little gems, but found nothing I wanted that was a reasonable price. One thing I did see was a set of vintage Pyrex mixing bowls. I have a strange love of Pyrex. Really. I wanted them, but the seller was asking $65, and that seemed crazy. I decided to check out eBay (you know, that very instant on my iPhone) and found an identical set with a current bid of $25. I decided to bid on them and got outbid. But there doesn't seem to be a shortage of them out there, so I'll get the bowls eventually.
New sunnies in action, and (finally) wearing the white dress I shortened last month.
Also wearing two "back of the closet items" today, the sequined tank is the second. It was really cheap, $3, I think, but can not be worn on its own, and the straps need to be shortened. Today I just pinned them.
