I'm Officially Cut Off


Shirt: UO, $10 // Pants: F21, $12 // Necklace: F21, $6 // Belt: F21, $3.50 // Shoes: Pour La Victoire, TJMaxx, $20

After a clothing trade on Saturday afternoon, a trip to the Urban Outfitters sales rack after dinner and a margarita (dangerous!), and a Forever 21 adventure on Sunday, I gained several key (mostly basic) pieces this weekend. Among them were these denim leggings that I've been looking for. They're great because you get the look of super skinny jeans without the discomfort. Expect to see more of my finds throughout the week. I am definitely cut off from shopping for awhile, so hopefully I got my fix!

haha I know exactly what you mean about buying a lot of things and then "cutting yourself off" from shopping...it never seems to work for me. You look great though, and I can't wait to see the rest of your finds!:)

Nice job on the shopping front! Really love the outfit you created for so little cash... it's definitely what I'm all about. I have also made a bunch of purchases recently, "shopping accidents" I call them, and need to be cut off as well. So sad... Love your style and your blog. - Krissie www.whatwouldkrissewear.com

Denim leggings--smart idea! They look great on you. Not too tight to even tell they are not jeans. Great basic outfit.

Keiko Lynn said...

I love that belt! I have a feeling this is going to prompt a lot of your readers to visit Forever 21.

p.s. I actually googled your alice + olivia peter pan top and checked ebay for about a week...I liked it that much. No luck though. Probably better that I don't straight up steal your style, eh? haha.

glorisa said...

where was the clothes swap? I'm thinking of putting one together downtown...
