In Reverse

I was messin around with my wardrobe the other day and found that I really like this. It's one of my dresses with a cami over it. Usually I'd just put it under. I don't know what possessed me to do this but I like it :)

Also I'm wearing my glasses in this post. xp!! Yuck! I know. I apologize for the ickiness. (i think you can tell, but...I don't like how I look in glasses)

Forever 21 drape sweater
Columbia Scarf
Bearpaw boots from Payless
Forever 21 hat (christmas present)
No Boundaries dress from Walmart
No Boundaries leggings from Walmart
Lady Hathaway Cami from Costco
belt off Peca's shirt from Macy's
PS. You might have noticed..I didn't put a price. That is because I will no longer be sharing with you what my personal outfits costs. No not because I have given up finding clothes that won't kill my budget. I will never pay over 100 for one item unless it is a dress for some SPECIAL occassion. Call me cheap...'cause I am hehe
No, the reason is because I don't think you need to know what I pay for my outfits. Rather, I think you need to know how to find good purchases. From now on I will be giving you the brand and where I got the item for references purposes, but I will also try giving you tips.
Is this a good change or bad?
I love hearing from you :)

Mary Poppins

Random note: As you can see here I own many random brightly colored bags. I don't know why but I can't stop myself from buying a whole litter of these. They are quite handy. Have any simple obbsessions like that? If so what?

My macy's sweater: $4 Belt I tore off of a Macy's Shirt: $15

Cold Weather Western Style

There's something about this outfit that just reminds me of something you'd wear in a barn...but frilly. haha I don't know why, maybe it's the boots, but who knows. I'm strange that way ;) So here's the outfit I wore to school today:

Oh and I forgot to meantion! I found this new way to take my outfit pictures. I found my grandma's tripod and took some pics in my room in front of my make-shift closet. Are these better than the other ones? I needed an easier way to take them...

The pieces are: Vintage Boots: $4 F21 Skirt: $15 Walmart Leggings: $5

Mom's Belt
And..Hollister Sweater: $4

Total: $28!!!!
Quick Clothes Snatching Note: Always always always! look in your mother's, aunt's, cousin's closets! There's bound to be something they don't want to wear or can't fit in that is a steal! I found this awesome cinch belt in my mother's closet along with a pencil skirt, dressy top, blazer, and other things. Also BE ON THE LOOKOUT FOR SALES! The CLEARANCE RACK IS YOUR BEST FRIEND!!! And thrift stores! You can find some great pieces for cheap cheap cheap if you have patience, thus resulting in an outfit like this....CHEAP! but CHIC! Keep cheap in mind chickies ;)
