I haven't been shopping with other girls in ages. It's not that I'm anti-social. I dunno...it just...sorta...happened. I've grown quite accustomed to shopping on my own, but had a blast with a good girlfriend of mine this past Saturday on a thrifty shopping spree. My friend, RE, helped me pick out some really great stuff!
Now that I'm under major budget, I've got to buy cheap so I can have some fun in numbers. In fact, my spree this weekend reminded me how much fun finding a good deal can be. I mean, don't get me wrong, I love a good sale rack like any other girl, but full-price cheap is another adventure altogether. I recently signed up for a Style Diary account and have been so impressed by how some girls are able to mix cheap with designer and make it look so amazing. I hardly have any designer anyways, but I would like to diversify my shopping and get back to my roots - back when I was a broke high school/college kid scrounging the racks for the best deals. Ahh...the thrill of the hunt!
We primarily went to the mall to hit up Forever 21, but I also ended up getting a couple things elsewhere.
Here's what I got:
From Forever 21: Navy Modal tank top, Black & Off-White Dress with Bow, Blu-ish Gray Tank Top with Ruffly Straps, Off-White Top with Black Upper Section and Floral Design; From Express: White Ruffly Tank Top
Close-up of the Floral Design on one tank top - this should look great with some black skinny jeans!

Super-soft white, ruffly tank top - so comfy and cute!
I also picked up a few things at Bath & Body Works including three bottles of my fave lotion in Cotton Blossom. I found out from the SA that they replaced the scent with Sea Island Cotton and talked to her for a couple minutes about how crazy it was they would get rid of such an awesome scent and would you know it...she came up to me a few minutes later and pointed me in the direction of the 75% off rack where there were three bottles of CB lotion. I scored them for $2.37 each - can you believe it?
I had so much on my thrifty shopping spree! I can't wait to go back! RE, when are we going to the mall, again?
