All About The Color Purple (OOTD)


Today I was able to pull my hair back in a medium height ponytail!! I liked the fullness of the tail. I wore it with side-swept bangs.Screen shot 2013-04-12 at 7.42.34 PM

Winning at TARGET’s Clearance


#1. Navy LABWORK Peplum Jacket

Screen shot 2013-04-01 at 8.03.28 PM

I enjoy peplum and this blazer is a sophisticated approach to the trend. I would pair this jacket with something bright or with a print or pattern to lighten it up. I’m not entirely sure of the reason for the steep discount, but I saw it wasn’t on sale online. It had a clearance online item sticker, which suggests it may have been an exchange or return from an online purchase. Either way, I’m happy to the discount.

#2. Mossimo Beige & Neon Crossbody Satchel

Originally: $29.99. In-store Clearance: $14.98

God must have been smiling down on me today because this purse was the only one of its kind in the store. I stumbled on it and had to snag it at 50% off. It’s a good size– not big enough to hold a child, but big enough for my necessities. It was just just in the nick of time, because the duct-taped handles on my school tote bag were getting embarrassing. This will be my travel companion this weekend. It seems very versatile.

#3. Dalmatian-print Skirt

Originally: $19.99. In-Store Clearance: $5.98

I’ve been looking to add some prints into my wardrobe and this quirky skirt fits the bill. I love the color and the details. At the icing on the cake was that it came with it’s own belt. I’m a sucker for almost anything that comes with a belt included. This particular belt is a versatile cognac brown color. I could easily wear it with other outfits.

Today was definitely a good day for shopping. I think my findings might have been by happenstance. I wouldn’t expect to see these crazy discounts everywhere.

In total, I saved $33.74 + $15 + $14 = $62.74 saved!!

Oh yeaa. Mama likes.

Thrifty Finds #1

This is my first thrift adventure since the pre-Clothes Swap fast. Lol, I haven’t thrifted for a month. Let me tell you, it was rough. But I went to my thrifting spot and I got:

  • 1 checkered blazer
  • 1 dress
  • 1 button-down sleeveless top
  • 1 floral skirt (with a pocket)
  • 1 pair of striped pants
  • 1 pair of vintage pearl drop earrings (not pictured)
My grand total was $16. Not bad.

My favorite things that I bought were the blazer and the dress. I’m definitely taking them to New York with me!
