fancy schmancy

today at work, wearing an ensemble comprised of a kohl's shirt for $5, target tights for $2.50, a thrift store lace skirt that cost $6, and some high heels bought on extreme clearance (i don't remember what price), a very stylish co-worker stopped me to say "wow, you're always SO anthropologie!"

which i took as a big compliment on my $30 outfit since anything from anthropologie is significantly out of my budget. i own one shirt from there, bought with a gift certificate on final clearance, and it's too small for me now anyway.

but i think i'm starting to figure out this whole "fake it till you make it" thing.

that is not me.

this is me. wearing ugly shoes.


  1. whoa, that's awesome! i wish i had the skill to turn a $30 outfit into an anthropologie compliment. you've got some magic!

  2. i'm sure you do have that skill! i am constantly inspired by your outfits (and liberal belt use).

    i just happen to have an hour for lunch each work day, which is the perfect amount of time to spend treasure-hunting in surrounding thrift stores.

    thanks for commenting! i'm still figuring out this whole "oh i should write a blog post about that" thing.
