Just want to give a quick disclaimer - This is after working for 9 hours and shopping so I probably should have touched up my make up and hair, but I didn't feel like it. So this is how I look after a long day at work :)
This dress was originally $69 and I got it for $22. The shoes I am wearing with it were originally $75 and I got them for $24. I just love the sales!
This dress I have been keeping my eye on for about 2 months. Waiting and waiting for it to go on sale. It was on sale for 25% off, but no additional :( Normally, I would have just got it, but I really have been trying to stick to my budget because I don't want to spend all this money on clothes and then only wear them a few times. But, I had to get it because there was only 1 dress left in my size. I didn't want to risk someone else buying it while I was waiting for it to go on sale at 50% off. Not to mention the fact that I have some really cute brown heals to match it, along with a cool brown necklace and earnings. Once I have everything accessorised it will be fabulous.
I am also happy to report that I am a 1x now and I am hoping with in a few weeks I will be able to move from the Plus Sizes to the regular Woman's sizes. YEAH!! This next picture is another splurge. It too was only 25% off, but again only 1 blouse in my size was left. I love the color and I have had my eye on this for about two months. So yes, I went a little out of control, but I can justify just about anything, so I figured "why not?". One other great buy... check out the earrings I am wearing. They are Diamond and Sapphire (fake of course). They were originally $40 and I got them on sale for $10. So that makes up for the the other items that were not quite marked down as much as I had hoped.
