Jeans: 7 for All Mankind via E-Collectique; Brewers Shirt: Kohl's
That was exactly what I said when I put these jeans on Friday morning. I bought these 7 for All Mankind jeans last summer from E-Collectique Runway Boutique for the sole reason that they were designer jeans for $40 even though they were way too tight in the waist.
Jeans: Costco; Plaid Shirt: William Rast for Target; Lace Top: NY&Co; Shoes: Kohl's
Later that summer, I also bought these pink jeans from Costco without trying them on. Never a good idea. They buttoned, but they were also way too tight and not comfortable at all. Well this weekend, I wore BOTH jeans COMFORTABLY with no muffin top. It was exciting!!
I wasn't sure about this pairing of lace over plaid, but after receiving thumbs up via Twitter from Pamela and Joanne, two very stylish ladies, I went for it. I just pretended I was a more disheveled-looking Blair, the layering pro. Also, the hair inspiration came from Kimberly. Enough name drops in one paragraph for ya?
I wore this Saturday to go shopping with a couple friends before we saw Titanic. I ended up buying a pair of aviator sunglasses, jelly sandals for Bridget, and this top from American Eagle, which I don't see on the website anymore.
I saw Jen wearing it and also pinned this picture for styling inspiration:
I felt soooo uncomfortable walking into American Eagle, though. Pretty sure all the employees were wondering why a (nearly) 30-year-old lady was shopping there and buying a cropped corset top in an XL. At least, that's what the young cashier girl looked like she was thinking. Judgers. I was pretty psyched to find it on the sale rack for $15, though, so it was worth it in the end, I s'pose.
Shopping at Express once the girls got there was a lot better. I didn't find anything except the sunglasses, but I had fun weighing in on their choices. And check this out, while I was sitting in the fitting room, I spotted this fellow in the checkout line. Look at those shoes! Pretty intense.
Titanic was good, of course. I'm kind of a scrooge when it comes to 3D these days, but I did appreciate the effects during the scene after the boat went down. It really felt like you were in the water with the people at times. I had tears streaming down my face the whole time the boat was sinking, so much so that my neck was wet by the time it was all said and done.
