Let me start by saying this weekend was fantabulous. Friday I went shopping with my lovely mother, Saturday Alabama pulled out a win in the last minute of the game, and Sunday I discovered Breaking Bad. It's been wonderful. This blog post is inspired by the items that I found on Friday, which are found below.
I found this beauty at my local thrift store, and have been wanting a fur vest for quite some time! I love that it's black so that it goes with so much (most of my wardrobe happens to be black...I don't really know how this happens..) and I love the feel of it. The back of the vest is actually a sweater like material, which I think is good because it keeps it from being too heavy.
These items I got at Forever 21! I've wanted something with the crosses on it for a while now and when I saw this sweater, I had to have it. I just realized that every item on this blog post is black...oh well. The pants are skinny jeans with wine colored polka dots on them. I can't wait to pair them with some boots and a chunky sweater (maybe of a color other than black!)
LOVE LOVE LOVE this coat. I found it at Ross for a steal. I recently saw a blog post on Bloglovin' where a girl had a coat very similar to this one, and I fell in love. And then the same day while out at Ross, this one popped up. The shiny parts are leather (or pleather) and the rest is a wool-like fabric.
In my opinion, if you can get away with materials that are inexpensive and look like the real (much more expensive) thing, then why pay the extra money? Whenever I see someone wearing something adorable, I don't ask them how much it was, I ask them where they got it. I don't like discounting something just because it isn't "name-brand" or really expensive. If you look cute, you look cute. And that's the end.
My dad and I recently got my mom an oversized Michael Kors Runway watch she had been eyeing for well over a year for their wedding anniversary. It is absolutely GORGEOUS. And then the other night at Wal-Mart, I got one that looks very similar for about ten dollars. Will it last as long as hers? Probably not. Is it still cute and pretty...at least while it lasts? Oh yeah.
And a side note: Happy anniversary to my parents, and happy birthday to my dad! I love you both more than you will ever know!
P.S. Pictures of watch in next post? Perhaps.
