I debated with myself in the last post and going forward of whether or not I’d like to include the prices of things in my posts. I decided to do it not because I’m trying to be tacky but because I’m actually quite proud of most of my findings. Folks might find it annoying but I’m always excited at the deals I get. I want to show that being fashionable doesn’t mean $60 white tees or $300 shoes. So I’m going to continue to do it. You can ignore them if they bother you. Moving on…
Yesterday I went to a fun brunch with some of the Austin Fashion Bloggers. (Any local bloggers out there interested in joining us, we love new members! Grechen’s blog has all the info.) Never worn the pants ($1.99!) or top before, so I’m proud I’m still making my way through the piles.
I wore some fuchsia heels that can only be worn when sitting and walking short distances. Y’all know what I’m talking bout. In my defense they are really cute.
I also pulled out my favorite coat – a thick wool, creamy white one I bought years ago. I wear this infrequently as well – again in situations where I know there’s no chance of me getting anything on it. I’m loved the jewel-toned outfit that ensued:
Gap pants – $1.99 – Thrift Store; Top – $8 – Gap Outlet; Necklaces – $1/2 each – Flea Market and Garage Sale; Shoes – $14 – Kenneth Cole Outlet; Bracelets – $4 – Le Tigre Outlet; Coat – $250 – United Colors of Benetton
On an unrelated note, here is a picture of Bear from the Bleet-Up a week or two ago:
