A couple days ago, I went a little crazy at the mall. I bought a lot of things I shouldn’t have, but that’s normally how it goes for me so I’m not too distraught.
Here was my haul.
One skirt, two pairs of yoga pants, one pair of yoga shorts, a tunic, six pairs of underwear, and two pairs of shoes. Yep, now I’m a little distraught.
I really couldn’t resist this one. I bought it at Forever 21 for EIGHT dollars. Deals like that don’t come around that often, so this is probably one of the smarter choices I made at the mall. I actually bought this one in January, but they forgot to take the censor off, so it took me until this week to finally go back and get it removed. (Side note: censors only work about half the time. Normally, they’re more for show than to actually catch you shoplifting. I’m not condoning stealing, but if you’ve ever had a censor left on and got home only to wonder why the alarms didn’t go off as you left the store, that’s why.)
I actually don’t like Forever 21 that much, but I got a gift card there for Christmas so I figured I might as well use it. At the malls I go to, Forever 21 is always so crowded and messy, and typically I just don’t want to waste the time sifting through piles of clothes just to find the one thing I want. Luckily, I found this tunic pretty quickly, so I was in and out in about a quarter of the time as usual.
The first pair of yoga pants and the last pair of yoga shorts I bought from American Eagle. I have a Select credit card there, so I ended up getting these babies for 20% off, plus a free pair of headphones with my purchase. Ah, the perks of spending a lot of money. I think for these two pairs I only ended up spending about $30, so once again, good deal. I haven’t worn the shorts yet, but I am in love with the pants, as you can probably tell from the top picture. They’re longer than a lot of my other yoga pants, which I like because at 5’8, a lot of yoga pants tend to be a little short on me.
The middle pair of yoga pants are from (you guessed it!) Victoria’s Secret PINK. I went on a bit of a rant the other day about how much I love PINK, and this is the first pair I’ve bought that are half-length. They were $34.50, if I remember correctly. A little bit pricier than I would normally want to pay, but once again, I had a gift card saved from Christmas, so I only actually spent about $15 after the gift card.
This skirt is from American Eagle too. I had previously bought what I though was a really cute black flowy skirt from AE, only to get home, try it on, and realize that they were, in fact, elastic high-waisted shorts. They were really ugly on my frame, and I was really disappointed. So, I returned them and got this instead! I’m loving high-waisted skirts for this summer, and I can’t wait to pair this with a tank and hit the beach!
Okay, I honestly don’t buy shoes very often. No really, I don’t. But these were buy one, get one for $10.50 at Charlotte Russe, and I couldn’t resist. How cute are they?! The only heels I ever really wear are wedges because I don’t do so well with stilettos or pumps, so of course I had to get a new pair. And what girl couldn’t use another pair of sandals? Not to mention, Charlotte Russe had a deal going on where if you text and check in at their store, they give you $5 off your purchase. So really, those sandals were only $5.50. This made me and my subconscious feel a little bit better.
I also bought two new candles from Bath and Body Works, one Mango Cilantro and one Fresh Picked Peaches. Let me tell you, there’s nothing more relaxing than sipping a glass of wine and reading a book while soaking in a tub with the scent of Fresh Picked Peaches. Sorry, was that a run-on sentence? Oh well.
What are some of your recent purchases?
