OOTD: May 11, 2013

So earlier today, I went to the mall to get a few Mother’s Day gifts- one for my mom and one for my aunt. I ended up purchasing this, so if you need a belated Mother’s Day gift, you should check it out. Anyways! I knew it was going to be hot today because my room was blazing and it reflects what it’s like outside since our AC is still broken. With that in mind, I decided to throw on a cool shirt and some shorts.

What I’m Wearing:

  • Top- B-Jewel from Marshalls
  • Tank- Forever 21
  • Shorts- Union Bay form Macy’s
  • Shoes- “Vans” from Target

If you read my latest haul post, you’ve already seen this top. As for the shorts, I don’t wear these too often, but I thought that the coral would look really cute with the navy (see a different outfit with the same color combo here). I actually chose to wear these shoes because I need a pedicure xD If my toes were presentable, I would have worn flip flops. In the end, I’m happy that I wore these shoes. Obviously, they are more comfortable for walking, but besides that, I liked the overall look. While the top and shorts are fairly girly, I felt that the shoes added a little bit of that skater look to offset it. Idk if that made sense, but whatevs.

Anyways, that’s all of this OOTD! I hope you enjoy it!

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.
