So my first post about my attempts on being frugal was about doing something for someone else, but I assure you I'm making an effort to be self frugal as well. This includes not shopping the Julylilly sale and cutting way back on the spending I has originally planned for my Nola trip, damn you car repairs!
So I still love my lilly of course but I'm also attempting to supplement with more affordable stuff and thus que my new obsession with forever 21. I had in my mind that its for teens and hookers but at some point they revolved into having really cute stuff! When I was in Nashville earlier this month I made a stop at opry mills and found the forever 21 store, it was glossy and bright and felt kinda upscale, yet I didn't buy anything over $25!
They still mostly cater to teeny tiny people and some of the stuff I would deem excessively short / low cut but the Nashville location offered a plus size section, shoes and tons of fun accessories. I wound up getting 2 peplum tops, 2 tops with jewel prints ( because I'm obsessed with jewel prints) a pair of loafers, a few hair accessories, and a little bit of jewelry for $140! Pair this with the trader joes stop I made and it was a good shopping day, I don't know why I don't go to Nashville more often.
This is me in one of the peplum tops, I got it for a more "edgy" look. Yeah, my version of edgy.
Oh, and the sunglasses are a previous purchase from amazon that I get tons of compliments on, bought for less than $10. The jeans are Talbots and I got them on sale last summer, I love Talbots jeans and love to get them dry cleaned. Here I'm wearing relaxed, now you know why this top is as edgy as I get.
