steal of a weekend


cream top: banana republic; tank: a|x; bandage skirt: target; boots: tommy hilfiger


shoes: rampage; skirt: target; tee: f21; necklace: charlotterusse

work has been crazy busy... but over the weekend i did a small bit of buying... but such 'steals'. i went to target to check out the new richard chai go international line.. and after trying a few pieces that were just not right for me.. i wandered through the juniors section and i saw the two black skirts pictured.. both for $12.99/each.. and i've been looking for a bandage skirt and a flouncy jersey one. oh and the rampage black patent shoes.. found at ross, on clearance for $6.99.
i was quite pleased.

oh and my shirt unbeknownst to me was pulled down way too far (in the 2nd outfit).

and my arm/hand has a mind of it's own.

** it seems our blogspot is having some problems... double posts and missing comments.. i'm trying to figure it out...**

  2. @songy: thanks!! oh and good news! those skirts aren't from the richard chai line.. so hopefully your target will have them.. i think they're both that xhileration brand.

    @lacourtier: $9 wide legged pants is a STEAL!

    @farren: thanks!! basics seems like all i want to wear in this heat!

    @savvymode: it's actually just a flow-y jersey mini and i'm loving it!

    @coco: yep wedge-heeled and super comfy!!

    @lalaliu: nope just a plush i had in my office (it's full of random items.. lol)

    @wendy: no problem! kinda makes me wanna join in the fun.. but my photos are nowhere near the awesome quality of yours!

    @thatshautte: not random!! you're actually like the 4th person to say so.. which is quite the compliment since i don't think my hair is that great.. :)

    @everyone else: thanks so much!!!

  24. I was kinda disappointed at how expensive the Richard Chai line was! Some of the designs were cute but I thought the price tag was ridic.

    Ugly dolls are so cute!

  29. You look gorgeous! Shopping outside the womens section is a trick everyone should know (but thank goodness not everyone does haha).

    For a tutorial on the skirt check out Camille's blog - Childhoodflames.blogspot.com, she does a really clear one, much better than I could do!

  30. I've been meaning to check out the Richard Chai items, but just like you, I usually end up not finding anything in the Go International lines that work for me.

    You look fantastic!
