OODT: April 3, 2013

This is just a quick update since I haven’t been posting as much as I want to. Normally, I wouldn’t post an OOTD with a school outfit, but I really do love this shirt. When I first saw it, I really wanted it, but I thought it was too expensive. Luckily, I got it for a Christmas present and so since it has a hood, I decided to whip it out today since it was supposed to rain today. Another reason I love this shirt is because it’s very poncho-esqu, but it’s still cute.

I know I look stupid, but I was trying to get a shot of the sleeves.

What I’m Wearing:

  • Top- Hollister
  • Cami- Aeropostale
  • Jeggings- Charlotte Russe
  • Shoes- Lucky Brand flats from Off 5th: Saks Fifth Avenue (not captured)

Like I said, this was just a quick update. I hope I’ll be able to post this weekend, but there are no promises since we’re having a crawfish boil on Saturday. I hope you enjoyed this simple post and that you enjoy the rest of the week!

OOTD: Casual Movie Date with Friends

So my friends and I went to Studio Movie Grill today. We watched Oz the Great and Powerful. It was kinda strange. I felt like they fused The Wizard of Oz and Alice in Wonderland. We watched it in 2D, but wouldn’t have minded seeing it in 3D. I’m not really a fan of 3D movies, but I felt like the effects in this movie would be good in 3D. Also, if you haven’t been to SMG in a while like me, I wanted to let you know that they now have assigned seating. Since we got to the counter at 2:00 and they trailers started at 2:05, we were played in the front. Literally the very first row.

Anyways, I thought it would be colder today since I was freezing all morning and since it was cold last night. I was wrong. Luckily, I didn’t wear boots and went with a cardigan instead. For this outfit, I combined two of my favorite things. Lace shirts and colored pants!

  • Bandeau- Nordstrom Rack
  • Cardigan- Hollister
  • Pants- Old Navy Corduroy Pants

I know this was nothing special, but I thought I would share. If you guys want more of these posts, like/comment on this one, because if not, I’ll probably only post OOTD/OOTN when I have dressier events to attend.

Shopping Steal(s)

I know I promised you guys this post a long time ago, but other things got in the way. Basically, these posts are going to contain items/clothes/products that I felt were super cheap. Like dirt cheap. With that being said, I’m not sure how of these ya’ll will get, but we’ll see. Anyways, before I only had one item to show you, but now I have 2!

The first item I got from Hollister before Christmas. I think they were having a redline sale, and while going through the mounds of clothes, I found this beauty.

I never had a slouchy, knit sweater, so I was super excited. On top of that, it was a large, so it was a normal length (on me) instead of a crop top. AND! Look at the back! It’s so cute!  The only downside was that there were holes in the shoulder. Because of this, I went to talk to a sales associate, who ended up letting me talk to the manager. He asked me if I was sure if I really wanted it, because the sweater was no use to him, and he probably would have thrown it away. In the end, I got the sweater for $3.90 plus tax!

The original price.

The original price.

The holes weren’t that big of a deal to me because I was hoping my friend’s mom could fix them since she’s a knitter. I got the sweater to her, and now it looks good as new! You can hardly tell that she knit it herself!

The next item are shoes from Target. I really wanted to make so galaxy shoes, and after watching this video, I decided to stop by Target to get my shoes there. In the video, Gabby said that she got her shoes for $10, so I was expecting a similar price. I was wrong. My shoes were only $3.88!! I was super excited that I got two navy pairs, one for the galaxy shoes and one just to wear.
