Yesterday it was a little bit cooler (but still sunny) so I thought it a perfect day to break out my newly thrifted dress + an old satin coat from forever21 that I hardly wear. Plus I wore my new pumps + kate spade wallet clutch from consignment stores.
I really like this style of dress and how it looks on a curvy gal like me. I got a lot of complements at work so I guess this outfits is a home run? Sweet!
Outfit Details: Dress: Lands End grey/beige 50s style shirtdress, thrifted $4.59 Shoes: Black leather Cole Haan pumps, consignment store $40 after store credits Jewelry: Chunky blue plastic necklace, thrifted $5 Jacket: Purple satin Forever21 dress jacket (I’m not even sure what to call this), really old
+ Kate Spade neon pink wallet/clutch, consignment store in Miami for $50 (I treated myself to this one).
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you’re having a great hump-day!
Day 6 of dressmeber midsummer madness has been record-breakingly hot (106 degrees as the high). I spent most of the day just hanging around the house in this cute Tart Collections navy halter dress. I found it a few weeks ago at TJ Maxx and my mom was sweet enough to get it for me (it was on clearance, too)! It’s casual but super comfortable and makes a perfect summer dress.
Later on in the day, my mom and I headed to the mall to cool off and I ran into this GORGEOUS necklace at J Crew. This bubble necklace is super awesome but SUPER EXPENSIVE. I cannot imagine ever paying $150 for a piece of costume jewelry.
But being the bargain shopper that I am, I had already been watching this very same necklace on ebay (I really had no idea it was $150…AH!) and I have found a multitude of them for under $20; some are even under $15 with free shipping. They ship from China but I think it would be work the wait. The Bubble necklace at J Crew is made in China too, I checked the tag.
Here is one of my favorite Bubble necklace look-a-likes. You can find them in a rainbow of colors but the apple green is awesome!
STEAL under $15
Mom and I then headed to Ulta to get me a new bottle of nail polish (don’t worry, I’ll show you later). While there, I remarked at how amazingly well my week old Ulta nail polish has lasted and not chipped hardly at all! I’m very impressed with Ulta polishes and their price is GREAT!
My manicure from last week, still looking great (and instagram-ed):
I hope all of you are staying cool and having a great weekend so far!
