Striped Steal




Dress & Earrings (The Limited); Shirt (Old Navy); Tights (Kohls); Shoes (Nine West);
Belt (H&M); Sunglasses (Charming Charlie)

I've been trying to be good and focus on others during my Christmas shopping... but sometimes the universe temps you in a way that cannot be ignored or resisted.  And by universe I mean those taunting signs that stores put right in front (40% off everything - 1 day only!). My eyes cannot unsee that - and before I know it I'm walking in... heading to the sales rack... and checking out with this striped dress for a cool $17.  As you can see - this was completely out of my control ;)

renae said...

Heather! two posts for me on the same day! [sorry i missed you yesterday] about that universe, i just call it the devil. the universe belongs to god and the earth belongs to the devil. there a bit of definitions of religious training. hahahaha. i love the phrase 'the devil made me do it'. we'll the devil can't make you do anything [my choice type thing] but he and his cohorts can put out 40% off signs for him. hahaha. but, i am glad you got that dress for only $17!!!! score, man, score.

have you seen my pic post today? i think i am going to have to resort to outdoor photos of moi for the blur sake.

see ya (hug)

newpetite said...

Thats a beautiful steal for $17! Love it!

Jackie said...

This dress is GORGEOUS! The colors are beautiful and I love the cascading stripes. And I know, I've been using all my willpower these past few weeks to avoid those e-mails. But sometimes the sales are just too good to pass up!
