Bargainista Finds

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

I was such a bargain shopper this past weekend! I know I said I might post a video, but it looks like it’s not happening. Sorry. Instead, I am posting a few pics of what I bought. The shoes are by Candie’s and only cost $5!! I know!! They are a plum color and I’ve already broken them in. Bargainista should be my middle name. Also, belts have become my new favorite accessory. The top belt is by Betsey Johnson and I adore it! You already know I’m not daring when it comes to prints, but I am going out on a limb here and I bought a few pieces. I’ve worn the dresses and they are very comfy. The necklace is by Avril Lavigne, I don’t know if you can tell but it’s fuchsia. It was on clearance…of course! Lol.

Curves & Photos

I saw this photo online and had to share it with you. Here is a “plus size” mannequin next to the so-called “normal” sized mannequins in Sydney, Australia. Read the news story here.

It’s Monday?

Hey beauties!

You’re going to have to excuse me today. I definitely have a case of the Mondays! I am soooooo pooped. It was a very fun-filled and exhausting weekend.

I spent a lot of time with family and even got some shopping done…as you can see in the pic. That’s a new dress I picked up, with my favorite leggings and boots. I wore that to a family function with my black cardigan. It was super comfy!! I’m not very daring when it comes to prints but, what the heck…why not? Lol.

I’m thinking about doing a video later and I’ll show you what I bought. I might even do a little jewelry giveaway! Yay!!

How was your weekend?

Did you get any shopping done?

Spring Trends: Tie Dye

You don’t have to love the 1960’s to appreciate tie-dye. It’s easy to wear, without looking like you’re headed to Woodstock.

Tie-Dye is already making a comeback. I guess we can’t enough of the psychedelic print! It’s definitely a fun print and can easily be found at your local thrift store, if you’re a bargain shopper like me. If you’re a daring and crafty fashionista, you might even attempt to create your own tie-dye fashion pieces! I’m calling dibs on #9!

My golden rule: Don’t let this bold print take over. Choose colors that would compliment your skin tone.

Wish List: Torrid

I’m broke as a joke…so I will e-window shop…again. I was browsing the Torrid web site and I fell for these 4 pieces. Oh Torrid…why must you be a little too pricey for this blogger on a budget? It’s ok…I will survive. I’m hitting up the Goodwill tomorrow to see what I can find. That will hold me over until the weekend. My name is Monique and I’m a shopaholic!
