my wallet isn't thanking me

Monday, October 31, 2011

I told myself when I left the house yesterday that I was moving - I couldn't spend money!

Then I went to Georgetown. And Forever21. And my budget hit the trashcan. The only good thing I can say is that I didn't buy everything and at least you get to benefit with some (slightly blurry) pics of what's happening in-store :)

P.S. - Excuse the socks. I was wearing boots and there was no way I was standing on F21's floor barefoot. Ick. 

Shirt: Torrid ~ Blazer: Ann Taylor LOFT ~ Jeans: Forever21+ ~ Boots: Steve Madden

My outfit for the day. I wasn't wearing makeup, which is why you're not seeing my face, but that actually turned out to be a good thing because after this I had a simply FANTASTIC time playing at Sephora and picking a new foundation.

Collared Lace Shirt (Forever21+, XL, $23?) : I can't find the link for this online, but it almost had me. I don't love that it's sleeveless and it was a little baggy at the sides, but I'm almost sure it would be great for tucking in. Ultimately I didn't want to pay for something that was so-so.

Color Block Lace Skirt (Forever21+, XL, $22.80): Stretchy, this skirt was just another ok. I was hoping it would be longer and act more like a lace pencil skirt, but it was a no go.

Letherette Pencil Skirt (Forever21+, 12, $19.80): Another almost. Problem 1? It fit in the waist and mostly in the hips, but because it's letherette I could barely walk, let alone sit down. I might have been able to size up but I'm pretty sure it would have been big everywhere else.

Tiered Daytime Dress (Forever21+, XL, $22.80): I actually wish this wasn't tiered, but it's such a comfy dress I couldn't pass it up at $23. There's now this will only be a day dress on me though, as I'm already planning belts, shoes, tights - the options abound for this blank canvas!

Tonal Stitch Fleece Jacket (Forever21+, XL, $34.80): This one almost got to me. If I hadn't gotten the next item I would have taken this coat home, and it's debatable whether I'll go back later and get it, lol. I love the color and fit, and it's surprisingly warm. It's not like I need another jacket (at all) but hey it's not black or white - that's different right?

Double Knit Poncho (Forever21, L, $34.80): Isn't it fantastic?!?! I have been obsessing over a cape/coat/jacket thing for what seems like forever and I could never find one that I liked until now. I think what I've learned from this is that I can't have a big blousey cape. It has to be somewhat fitted and shorter for it to work on my frame. It's a little thin for this suddenly snow-filled weather but I can't wait to layer and wear it out!
