pretty + cheap

wish it was summertime!

I can’t wait for summer. I always have so much more fun in the summertime, and I can’t help but love warm weather clothes (i.e. this yummy cotton dress from Forever 21.) I know I’m not going to be able to wear it for a few more months, but I tried it on and it looked very pretty, and well, it was only 20 dollars. Ahhhh, Forever 21 is a death trap! I swear, I can’t walk into that store without buying something. But look at this dress. It’s so pretty.

Two things I hate: panty hose and cellulite. One thing I love: Hanes Solutions Anti-Cellulite nylons. Who knows if they really beat the bumpy stuff, but at less than 10 dollars a pair (from mass retailers like Target, Walmart, etc.) its cheaper than splurging on expensive cellulite creams, and as a bonus they add a little bit of color to my haven’t-seen-the-sun-in-months legs.

comfy pumps

Aerosoles is the last place I thought I would find a sexy pair of heels for Valentine’s Day, but as usual, I’ve been proven wrong. And the best part: these shoes retail for 80 dollars, but I got them on “winter clearance” for 20! And the ultra cushy sole is heavenly. Who knew cute heels could be so comfortable (and cheap). Guess I might be able to wear heels out dancing now without having to slurp down several vodka sodas to mask the pain.

great lengths

I keep forgetting to blog about these elbow-length cashmere gloves I found at Nordstrom Rack. Only 17 dollars on clearance! The extra length is great for when I stupidly decide to wear short sleeves in the dead of winter.
