adam's best (guy) friend is getting married. adam is in the wedding. do i have a TON of dresses i could wear? yes... would they 'match' adam's super-cute tux & wedding colors? no. i know, i'm silly, but i'm the girl who likes to play matchy-matchy with husband sometimes.
i've procrastinated because the wedding is next weekend. but look, i don't need a new dress, so i don't want to spend a lot... i also was planning on getting a second one for rehersal, but i think i've given up on that... we'll just match in colors that aren't they're wedding colors. they won't care. :)
so, thursday i went shopping after work. friday i went shopping for a bit after work (before datenight) and then went back with husband after date night. and saturday i went shopping. i found lots of goodies! ...among them, maybe a dress...?
***i know 5 new leggings is a bit excessive. i am self-reflecting right now & thanking God for all the blessings we have right & the ability to buy silly things like this!***
leggings. i LOVE leggings. husband doesn't mind them, but doesn't love them... here they are. the awesome Victoria's Secret ones (glitter damask & shiny gold) were like over $50. i spotted them when they first came out. yeah, no thanks on the price...even though glitter is my thing & so is damask -- perfect combo! anyways, they were on SALE, in my size PLUS i had a giftcard... so... FREE. and i had 2 FREE PANTY coupons...so i got 2 FREE PANTYS! bam.
***sidenote, i like THICK leggings for outside. the only place i've found them is The Limited when i worked there & not since... :( even victoria's secret ones aren't very thick...but these are yoga leggings & are thick. SWISH!***
gumball leggings? yes, gumball leggings. hilarious. can't wait. patriotic AMERICA leggings? why, yes please! both $5 from Delia's. i'll keep you posted! they're thin & not warm, so they might just be worn around the house or hanging out around Christmas or Thanksgiving inside! and those NEON jeggings? from the gap...ended up being like $11. not great, but definitely not bad...great colors! :)
BELOW you'll see some smelly goodies i found at TJMAXX. i think it's all natural, but they smell very light, but very YUMMY! i'd never heard of Cat Kidston, but i think we're going to get along just fine! i thought this room spay was body spray! HA! and this lotion is yummy. for some reason, i feel kinda fancy wearing these. they're vintagey, too.
like my pants above, i got husband a good deal on these shirts, too (from Gap). he'll wear whatever i get! :) i think they ended up being $3.97 before sale w/ an additional 30% off? so, i got them for under $3 per...he wore one to church today! :) very handsome.
this dress... might be the one i wear to the wedding. i don't love it, i don't hate it. by the way, who would pay $98 for this? not me. anyways, their colors are navy & yellow w/ Vera Wang charcoal tuxes. it'll look very cute. i might put a yellow or cream belt, but idk yet. im still on the hunt for shoes, maybe a different dress, we'll see. so, this one... you can see the progression of decline on the prices. guess where i found it? not tjmaxx (max studio), but GOODWILL. so, i paid like $5.87 or whatever the price it. bam. the only downfall to the dress is it pretty form fitting...and the one shoulder thing sort of throws me off...that's okay...it'll probably still be the dress i rock. and match husband. :)
i found a PERFECT dress at charlotte russe for $15. the small was getting ready to show my cheekers & the large was hanging off me, but they didn't have a medium. i could have altered the large, but there was a snag in it. sad day.
so, this dress is from American Living & i found it at goodwill...it looks an awful lot like one of my bridesmaid's dresses (they all wore different black dresses -- snazzy!). i thought it'd just be a nice sunday dress. it's a bit big, but that gives me some wiggle room once we get pregnant (not trying, i just like to plan wwaaaaaaaaaay ahead!).
and i had a $5 off $20 coupon. and since i was already up to almost $15, i figured i might as well find something else to get me to $20 & then i could use the coupon & BAM. so, i got the 2 dresses above, this Geoffory Bean gingham shirt & a picture frame & a book for $15 from Goodwill. i think i'm going to wear the button up just under a snazzy vest (not the one pictured).
i don't know what i'm going to wear the fur vest with, but i found it at salvation army for $3. i did some searching via google images to see how people dressed them & i am really digging some of them... we'll see. i'll let you know! :) HA! notice how they're all hanging up? that's because i hadn't washed them & didn't want them touching our bed (the fur vest had been washed)!
anyways, love sharing my good deals with you! DON'T BE AFRAID TO THRIFT (or find something by a dumpster, lol)! you might find some really good goodies! just wash them well!
