Outfit: Pink suede motorcycle jacket (Luella for Target via Ebay), white top (Urban Outfitters), Leopard print mini skirt (swap), black tights, studded headband (I popped it on right in the store after I bought it...Delia*s), purse (vintage), scarf (vintage)
I made a second pilgrimage to the mall with a friend on Friday. I wore the above outfit, and I have to say I felt really good in it. It had a lot of potential to be tacky (leopard print, turquoise zebra print, pink suede, 80's purse...you get the idea), but I think it turned out okay. It expressed my exuberance very nicely, I think. I also wore my motorcycle boots with it. I've been living in the things lately. What a good buy those turned out to be!
Speaking of buys, my purchases on the said shopping trip were: the top shown above (on sale for $10) and the studded headbands shown above ($3), some assorted skincare products, and some cute underwear/bras from Victoria's Secret (I have never before purchased anything from that store, but my friend was obsessively trying things on and I'm not one to sit around while my shopping partner shops). I didn't get a whole lot, but I had fun.
If you recall, I mentioned a few days ago that I ordered some things from Twelve by Twelve. Well, they arrived right before I left for the mall on Friday. I had ordered a pair of leggings and a sweater dress, and let me just say that the size chart on the Twelve by Twelve website is extremely misleading. It appears to be the same as the Forever 21 size chart, but everything is bigger. The leggings were huge, and the dress was pretty large as well. I'm sending back the leggings, but I decided to put the dress in the dryer even though the washing instructions didn't recommend it and it shrunk to fit me. Here it is:
I do like it a lot, because it's really comfortable and has a nice shape. It appears to be better quality than things I've ordered at Forever 21. As in I'm not worried all the buttons will pop off and the seams will unravel. I was totally impressed with the tags - they are actually the prettiest tags I have ever seen. That was a nice surprise. You can't see them very well in the picture, but rest assured that they are quite gorgeous.
All in all, I'm happy with my new purchases. I've already worn the studded headbands twice!
