So here in Pennsylvania the weather has been pretty bipolar. It has been snowing on and off since Christmas and quite frankly, I am tired of the snow. I hate the cold. I was supposed to start school this week but because mother nature is being, to lack a better word, a bitch, school was canceled. I had my back to school outfit all planned out yesterday too. Don't you just hate that? I was all dressed up with no where to go! (well, besides work, of course.)
But anywhoozle, I might as well get to good part now, right? *enter picture of outfit!* (Okay okay, so it's only part of it. Kind of.)
Well I should start off with my denim shirt. Kind of a funny story about that. It's from my work. Now this is for all the nineties kids out there. Who remembers the Limited Too? It was only the coolest, hippest store for girls! Well anyways, that's where I work. I mean, it's not called the Limited Too anymore, it's called Justice.
I never actually thought I would work at the store that I always envied clothing from as a child. Let's be real, Limited Too was expensive. $45 for a pair of jeans? That you're gonna outgrow in a year? Yeah, no. I don't think so. My parents wouldn't drop that much money on a single pair of pants, and I don't blame them! (And yeah, the prices are still the same, too.)
But back to the shirt now. This past weekend we had a "flash sale" where everything in the store is 40 percent off and then an additional 20 percent off. Any clearance, or "redlined" items got the 40 and 20 PLUS an extra 50 percent off. After it was all said and done I got a $42.90 shirt for only $10 and some cents. That's right, ten buckaroos!
If there's something you need to know about me, it's that I LOVE a good bargain. I mean, who doesn't?! It's the best feeling, really. I think that's what I like the most about fashion. Trying to find the best deal or bargain on something. It's what makes it fun and exciting!
(Can we just take a second and admire my perfect winged eyeliner?)
Now moving along, the earrings I'm wearing are from I-am, which I talked about in my previous post so I won't be talking about them that much. Another bargain buy, $1.99! Blam, done.
For my hair I decided to go with a messy-ish sock bun and I put two silver rose clips on the side. The clips were purchased from H&M and I believe they were only a few dollars. I thought it looked cute and it kind of went with the gems that are on the collar of my shirt.
The pants I'm wearing are actually high waisted. They're Bullhead Denim from Pacsun. I've been loving high waisted jeans and burgundy/maroon anything lately! The boots are from Rack Room Shoes. They were actually my sister's, but I kept "borrowing" them that she just eventually got fed up and just gave them to me. Isn't she so nice?
