So sorry, readers - it's been awhile!  I wasn't able to complete the 30 for 30 challenge due to a last minute camping trip and just being a crazy busy bee.  I promise to update on a more regular basis.

The Silken Stitches Dress

As mentioned in one of my previous posts, I purchased this dress in a size 10.  I loved it so much I was willing to pay to get it altered and let's just say I'm totally glad I did!  The dress itself was simple, but the colors made a bold statement.  I love the royal blue mixed with the cerulean blue pattern.

Outfit #3

Cardigan - Nordstrom - Purchase here
Dress - Anthropologie
Pearl Necklace - Macy's for $8
Shoes - Target - Purchase here

Do you have a favorite dress that you would wear all the time if you could?

By the way, the Kate Spade Love Notes Bow Ring is back in stock (in size 6 and 7) - check it out here!

Coin Purse and Chambray

This 30 for 30 challenge has definitely forced me to be creative.  I know this is only outfit #2, but the challenge has already pushed me to think outside of the box in terms of mixing and matching the clothes that I already have.  I never thought of pairing the H&M chambray shirt with LiaMolly's Coin Purse Cardigan until a few days ago and I must say, I love how it turned out!  Sorry for the grainy phone pic -_-

Cardigan - Anthropologie for $10!
Chambray Shirt - H&M - Similar here
Skirt - H&M - Similar here
Shoes - Urban Outfitters for $10! - Very similar here

Have you come up with an outfit combination that you're really happy with?

I'm late!

I'm a few days late for the 30 for 30 challenge, but here is outfit #1!

Cardigan - Anthropologie - Similar-ish here
Tank - Forever21
Skirt - Anthropologie
Shoes - Target - Purchase here
Handbag - H&M - Similar here
Ring - Kate Spade

This is completely off topic, but I forgot to mention that I bought the Silken Stitches Dress at Anthro for $30 (orig. $168) during the tag sale.  The only problem with the dress was that it was 8 sizes too big @.@.  Despite the size, I couldn't resist picking it up at such a great price (I've also been pining over that dress for awhile, though it was forever sold out online).  So I took it to the alterations and they hemmed/took it in and now it fits perfectly.  I'm so excited to wear this dress to a friend's wedding in a few days!

Now I'm off to figure out what my outfit #2 will be for tomorrow.  Any ideas?  :P

Fall into the Gap

Am I imagining things or was there an old Gap commerical with the lyrics "Fall into the Gap, fall into the Gap"?  Anyway, I totally scored this amazing Gap blazer the other day for a whopping $25 (orig. $98).  And on top of the amazing price, the lining of the sleeves have little polka dots!!  And to add to my bargain shopping bragging, I scored these crop pants for $6 at Old Navy several months ago.  Old Navy has totally stepped it up in terms of their work/casual clothes.

Have you scored any good bargains lately?  Please do brag. :)

Don't you love..

Don't you love finding accessories/clothes in your closet that you forgot you had?  It feels like I just bought new clothes minus the spending money part, which is always good :P  That was the case with this fedora hat, it was stored under my big, messy pile of clothes.  As soon as I found it, I got all excited and knew it'd be the perfect spring accessory.

Fedora Hat - Urban Outfitters - Similar here
Cardigan - BP Nordstrom, Purchase here (it's on sale!!)
Maxi Dress - Gap, Similar here
Belt - Anthropologie, Similar here
Small purse - H&M, Similar here
Ring - Kate Spade - Purchase here

I cannot emphasize how much I love the Kate Spade ring.  It goes with everything and it's such a reasonable price for a Kate Spade piece ($38)!

Have you recently found a clothing piece/accessory in your closet that you're totally excited about?
