i beat my all time record for cheapest pants ever purchased the other day when i bought these babies for all of $3 at walmart. there is only a kmart and walmart in the great town of gillette, wyoming and shopping is limited to say the least...but it's a little challenge that i'm embracing. we're saving up to buy our first home this fall and we've been working hard to shuttle as much money as possible into our savings account. sometimes i find myself lusting over the nordstrom anniversary sale, but then i think about the next couple months and remember that living in a beautiful home we paid for ourselves is going to feel a lot better than those $300 tory burch boots.
so a clearance charlotte russe $0.99 necklace, a $4 target v-neck and some $20 kohls pumps (these are the most comfortable/easiest to walk in heels i have ever worn, fyi!) bring the grand total of this outfit to $28! and $28 for a complete outfit is a pretty screaming deal, if i do say so myself. i see all these fashion bloggers with $600 dresses and $1200 shoes and $3000 bags and i just don't get it. i'm from south orange county where there's a ton of money...and how many people do i see wearing valentino rockstuds to church? 0. how many people do i see with $1000 burberry diaper bags? 0.
but yet the fashion blogger community built of young wives with new babies and husbands with fresh careers? louboutins, celine bags, valentino and fendi! it just doesn't add up, ya'll.
so here's to money and being smart with it! you know that really famous phrase from sex in the city where carrie bradshaw is like, "i like my money right where i can see it...hanging in my closet."
no, carrie bradshaw. no.
you should like your money right where you can see it...in your savings account.
