a fashion show of bargains.

ok so...went on a girl's weekend to kansas city. ya, i live in kansas city but whatever. anyway, we went shopping at the new forever 21 on the plaza and it was a magical place to behold. minus the 12,000 13 year olds. anyway, it's raining today and we're not going anywhere, so i decided to play dress up.
here's what i bought...all on the cheap.

i don't know if you can see the prices i put next to the items...but all the tops were basically $11. wowza!

this skirt is basically another version of yoga pants...my fave. and for $5.80? puh-lease. going back to get one in every color. fyi, go a size up.
oh and the brown cardi is from gap...it was free b/c i bought it with my GROUPON!

oh, there you are kids. forgot ya'll lived here for a minute.

but really, here is what i decided to wear for the day. and will wear for the next 3 days in a row. nato HATES these pants. not sure why. is it the obnoxious color? or the stunning elastic band? the incredible pose i'm doing?

the good Lord knows that picture needed to be blurry.

  2. holy! you scored. i am so jealous. the DJ and other music battling it out and the millions of crazy kids were too distracting for me. btw, you make a great mannequin. the blurry effect makes you totally look plastic! {side note, the word verification for this one is ningr. what is up with that? i am so offended!}

  10. You slay me. I cannot wait to look non-buddha-like and hit up some stores. Thank the good Lord it'll be fall; I can just cover everything in sweaters until the ol' pooch disappears!

    Nice legs by the by.

  15. alyssa, the grey flower is from forever 21 a couple months ago. they don't have them anymore...uh oh, looks like you're gonna have to have a crafternoon and make your own! ha.

    and ya'll are all cracking me up with your word verification jokes. sometimes they are too close to offensive. LOL.

    and thanks for the compliments too. seriously, i want you all to blog a fashion show too. it's fun and hilarious.

  19. my favorite is the grey/white striped top with the tie. like them all, but that one is just so cute.

  20. LOL! I used to have some obnoxiously pink VELOUR pants that I wore around the house... Come to think of it...I haven't seen them for a while...JEFFREY!!! :) Totally cute purchases, pretty much my entire wardrobe is from forever21, prob not something I should brag about... Tell me if you see any good sales at Gap, we still have our Groupon and I hate buying stuff full price!

    Also, the cardi with the flower {that looks like something you could have made ~ and that is def a compliment} is really cute!

    Have a lovely weekend :)

  25. Hi there. I met you at Kathleen's shower yesterday and I am your new cyber-stalker. That's right. I'm unashamedly admitting that I have spent the last 36 hours reading every entry in your blog and I now feel like we've been friends forever. Except you probably know me as the girl who sat on the couch across from you who also has a daughter named Lila. If you remember me at all. But really, now that I know everything about you, we might as well be best friends. Anyway, I know how much I love comments on my blog, so I wanted to leave ya one and say I'm not even sad that I mostly ignored my daughter today as I laughed and cried and oohed and aahed and copied down recipes and bookmarked craft ideas...I'm a total dweeb. But I think you're cool. :)
