so i haven’t posted any of my recent purchases in a really long time, besides my past few posts, so here’s a mini haul XD
basically i had a bunch of money saved up for something i wanted to buy, but my auctions weren’t going well so i had to cancel it. then my auctions started going REALLY well, and i was saving up for something else i really wanted to buy, but unfortunately the seller backed out. i’m glad she did, because then that whole thing with the bally shoes came up and i lost $55 :(
but anyway! these are things i’ve bought. i happen to be in love with all of it.
so yesterday i stopped by a wonderful boutique that i visit often called therapy! i know, it’s a weird name, but it’s a lovely store. think of it as if modcloth was a real store–they even carry the same brands! i love going to therapy because the shopgirls are always so nice to me, and they know me so whenever i stop by they always personally greet me and ask if my mom’s around, and help me pick out stuff!
they also sometimes give me free stuff–really!! one time i bought a top, and then they let my mom and i pick two rings for free–worth $12 each! it was really nice of them. and yesterday, my little brother was throwing a fit when i was shopping because he was hungry, and i showed him this funny cow keychain that moos. when we went to go eat next door, he said he kind of wanted the keychain, so we went over and the girl i was talking to just let him have it! it wasn’t expensive or anything (it was $3.50) but it’s a kind gesture and makes me want to shop there more, you know? :]
so anyway, if you’re ever in the bay area of california, check out one of their locations–you won’t be disappointed! :)
ANYWAY! so last time i went to therapy, i wanted to buy an elephant top, but my mom didn’t like it, and now it’s sold out. so i settled on this one, and i love it! it’s from a brand called ‘collective concepts’.
i loooooove this picture! i don’t know what i did, but i love how it was taken, and the colors contrasting :)
i think it would look cute with a brown or even pink tank top under–i don’t have pink, so here’s brown for demonstration!
i bought this free people star burnout top for $5 on eBay a few weeks ago. short story–i had bid on a diff auction for the same shirt but was outbid literally at the last minute to $20, and i was kind of sad cuz i really liked this top. so i just searched it and saw it listed for .99 + $4 shipping and jumped on it! i love it–you really can never go wrong with thermals! :)
this next top i bought just a few days ago on eBay for $7 + free shipping! it’s from truly madly deeply (a brand carried largely at urban outfitters). i don’t know what i liked about it, but it’s simple and cute, plus i don’t have very many v-necks! (and miranda cosgrove wears it on icarly, hee hee!)
i haven’t worn it yet, because i want to wear a pink tank top under, and like i said earlier, i don’t own a pink tank top! so i have to be on the lookout for one! :P
this is one of my new favorite favorites. it’s the first thing i ever bought from topshop! it’s a floral high waisted skirt that has a cute 50′s feel to it–i like how it’s supposed to be worn at the hips, and not the waist! it’s more flattering for me :)
the material is kind of rough but i don’t mind. and it has POCKETS!! except in order to get the bow to tie the way i like, i have to wear the skirt backward, so the pockets end up not being that useful since they’re backwards too! lol.
sorry for the cat hair……………cats =.=
these next two shirts are from the brand chaser LA, their shirts are so soft and cute! i don’t have many band t-shirts, so i’m glad i came across both of these. and for the record, yes of COURSE i listen to AC/DC and pink floyd! i honestly don’t like AC/DC as much as i thought i would, but i’m madly in love with pink floyd ‘the wall’ right now. it’s amazing!
FOR THOSE ABOUT TO ROCK
and like i said in my post about my black milk galaxy leggings, i got this shirt for $10 during some kind of 2 for $20 sale on lockerz.com, which is a site where you have to like earn points and stuff. i use it for hosting twitter pictures, but yeah!
[if you want an invite for lockerz, please leave a comment below so i can invite you! xD]
this next shirt i’m so glad i bought–it’s a cute tiger cropped shirt from the brand whitley kros that i bought on eBay for $20 + free shipping!! the pink shirt below is separate, but i just put it there because it looks cool. normally i wear it without the pink, though.
this next striped sweater/long sleeve is from marc by marc jacobs that my mom bought for me from nordstroms rack. it was originally $210 or so, and i bought it for $65! i really like it, but i haven’t worn it much because i don’t know how to coordinate it because of the little…thinggy in the middle o__O help is appreciated! O:
psssst…it has shoulder pads! HAHHA! :D
this next sweater i’ve been stalking for a million years, it’s from NTICE on karmaloop and it features a keith haring drawing. i was kind of upset that this sweater wasn’t actually a sweatshirt material, it’s more like a stretchy long sleeve material, but it’s super easy to layer and soft!
recognize this coord? it’s from when i was at the harry potter 7 part 2 movie with my friends!!
and finally, here’s an AMAZING somewhat cropped velour cardigan i bought from black peace now during one of their sales. i’m so sad that they’re closing–like SO sad. the only person i know who is sadder than me is my mom; she genuinely liked wearing BPN clothing! and now it’s going to be so hard to buy stuff from them because they’re not very popular…:( we’re going to go mad during the sales though!
my TWO white cats are convinced that black clothing is softer than any other colored clothing…because they love sleeping on my dark colored clothing…
anyway, thank you for reading this post of things i’ve bought, and i hope you like them XD
i have a few more things that i haven’t taken pics of that i will post soon, as well as more content for my blog! :P
and don’t worry–i’m attempting to SAVE my money now, because i’m trying to save up for a pair of shoes!
sigh…only $100 away!
wish me luck!
