Hello!! I am back. I apologize for that unwarranted and undiscussed hiatus! A new semester started and I needed to focus on school (barf). But I am here once again, never fear fashies.
I actually don’t work at F21 anymore, but I still work in retail. The store I work at now, Aritzia, is a little more sophisticated and grown-up. I want to start dressing this way, not just for the job but for myself. I feel a style evolution creeping towards me. And destroying my wallet.
SO I WENT TO THE MALL TODAY… I also made $70 at Plato’s Closet so there’s no room for judgement here (actually there’s no room for judgement ever).
Introducing… the purchases of today, Wednesday, 2.26.14~!
(and now it’s time for a breakdown)
LEFT: Black cropped sweater - Forever 21
RIGHT: Chain necklace - Forever 21
I still shop there though. Heavily. I bought the sweater because it’s still freezing in Detroit and I need more sweaters. It was only 15$! The chain, is just something a gangsta needs. aka me.
LEFT: Checkered dress - Marc by Marc Jacobs (Thrifted from Clothes Wonder)
RIGHT: Studded military style lightweight jacket - Forever 21 (Thrifted from Plato’s Closet)
Funny thing about that jacket - it was brand new when I was working at F21 and I always really wanted it, but I never wanted to spend 40$ on it. Even my sister has it! But as I wandered around Plato’s Closet today I found it. It was my lucky day. SAME WITH THE DRESS, THOUGH?!!? 22$ Marc by Marc?! K BYE!!!!
"E" Midi Ring - Francesa’s Collection
YES, it’s supposed to be a midi ring, but my fingers are so teeny that I can wear it all the way down onto my ring finger. I decided that I’m gonna always wear this. It symbolizes me, and my love for myself. It was kind of expensive (9$) BUT I think it was worth it. I always go to Francesa’s, which is a small chain boutique, for some good jewelry finds. One time, I went there and regrettably spent 12$ on this pair of earrings and I was like, GODDAMN why did I do that?! But then I ended up wearing them almost everyday. So.
Black Heeled Booties with Buckle - PacSun
Something weird about me - I’ve always been this way - is I literally wear the same pair of shoes everyday. I own like, 10 pairs of shoes at the most. I don’t find shoes to be a huge part of the outfit, which is SO WEIRD but I just don’t like to draw attention to my shoes. I want people to see the rest of the outfit, not my lil feet! So I’m always looking for new shoes because I’ll be wearing the hell out of them. These were 70% off for winter clearance and even though they are thick azz booties I will be wearing them in 98 degree heat I assure you.
SO THAT’S IT! I was not planning on spending all this money today… but… oh well. They were all small prices to pay for a big fashion sense. What about YOU GUYS?! Are you revamping your fashion sense? What are your favorite places to shop at the mall?! I WANNA KNOW, inbox me with your answers!!
