I'm a liar

This will be a good way to start this months posts off...

I often say I don't steal things that don't have a price. This was not the case, nor did I steal. I stumbled into the Salvation Army on 99 cent yellow tag day (geez how did that happen? oh wait, I call ahead because I have their number programed in my phone). I then ran into this beautifully tailored peach blouse but it was a white tag and $2.99! A big splurge for the girl who had $13.00 in her checking acct at the time. After trying it on, I decided I would take it, in all its 3 dollar glory. When I got to the register though, the man, who was raza, just asked me how many yellow tags I had, "6" I lied. So I ended up getting it for 99 cents after all. Sneaky me. I was too scared that he would discover my one white tag amongst yellow tags so I didnt let him bag my items. Someone help me.

I paired it with these 99 cents jeans I was about to cut into some cool jean shorts when I discovered that I kinda liked the jeans uncut. Which is weird for me cause I HATE JEANS. They are the devil. I just dont feel comfortable and will wear whatever jegging, tight, or legging, I have to to avoid them. I couldnt believe it! I texted my niece who was downstairs and after her approval, came downstairs in my 2 dollar outfit. My dad was impressed on how shiny and clean I was looking and asked where I was going...

"Target," I said.

And then I went to Target. Fin. End of story.

blouse- thrifted 99 cents
jeans- thrifted 99 cents
shoes- Target
choker- vintage $55 dollars (my mom bought it for me)

This necklace was love @ first sight. I knew I had to wear it with something simple, took me a while to style it.

Sunny Greetings from my Target to yours. Saludos desde Target (sunny part lost in translation).

I just dont get trends these days. Where the f*#$ am I supposed to clip this fox tail? And why is it 13 dollars?

My niece and her makeup I did that day. I call it "Target natural."

  17. Lovely outfit ;) I like the color and the line of the blouse, a lot.

  18. Fab outfit with a hilarious story. I am too honest- our charity shops don't have sales BUT I sometimes fess up to the old lady at the till when something is designer and they haven't noticed. They never seem to charge me more, but I suppose they get the stock for free so a sale is a sale!

  19. Very cute necklace!!!!
