[derpy webcam! my arms are black...thats cool]
so i’ve been doing tons of holiday shopping at free people recently!
i went in with my mom last week and bought a ring and a sweet cashmere sweater during their holiday glam event, where they had cookies, makeup artists, and tons of items on sale! i got the red deco stone ring for $20 (from $30) and a the riding hood cashmere cardigan in gray for $90 from $170!
pros and cons of each:
the cardigan’s button fell off, so i contacted free people and asked for an extra button since i didn’t get one when i bought it. but for god’s sake, i’m not rough with things that i buy–why would the button fall off? so dumb.
the ring is so gorgeous, but leaves a weird greenish gray residue if you wear it for too long. otherwise, cute!
so anyway. the free people i was at had a party thing, and it said if you bought a holiday dress you could be entered to be in a contest to win a huge gift basket. when we were paying, my mom and i thought it was so cute!
AND THEN! i went to free people after school yesterday with my friend, since it was a minimum 1:05 release day (school usually ends at 3:32, weird times, i know) and so i walk into the store looking for a sweater i saw online, and a girl approaches me. she asks if i had gone to the store last week during the holiday glam party. i was confused at first, but i nodded yes. then she tells me that i won their contest and they had drawn my name but i had already left, and they were about to choose a new winner but decided to wait for me to retrieve it.
SO EXCITING!!!!!!!!!!!!! the only thing is, i feel guilty because i didn’t actually buy a dress…i don’t think…o__O
oh well! free stuff! and i ended up buying the sweater that i wanted. tons of pics now! :D :D
i’m going to give the basket to my mom for christmas; she doesn’t know we actually won it so it’ll be surprising for her! <3
it’s in a DRUM!!
NYX makeup + the newest edition of nylon magazine!
tons of free samples of skin care products + perfumes
an expired coupon XD
OKAY! now for the things i bought.
yesterday, after getting the goodie bag, i bought the marled yarn pullover in mocha–they told me a ton had just come in which was lucky because it’s sold out in every size online! eeeek!
it’s a really beuatiful brown-purple color. i was deciding between this or the roxy high low pullover in burgundy–it’s a similar sweater that is very soft, but the cut is a little higher.
i got an xtra small but i suppose i could have gone for a small if i wanted a drapey-er look. but i prefer fitted!
sorry for my mirror being so dirty! i’ll clean it, i swear.
this skirt is from loehmann’s, and it’s from BLANK NYC. it used to be $80 but i got it for $25! whee!
last but not least, the ring i bought! (i’ll post the cardigan later)
aint it a beaut?
anyway sorry for huge pic spam! i’ll be posting a ton over winter break but i’ll try to make the posts shorter ;)
