Goodbye, for a week

In less than 5 hours I leave for Clarksdale, Mississippi for a weeklong Habitat for Humanity trip. I won’t have internet access and my outfits will all be work clothes so I won’t have new posts until I get back. I hope everyone has as much fun as I plan to!

Leather Blues

It’s no secret I love eBay; that site is absolutely amazing. However, I do hate when I forget to bid on items I set my heart on. I wanted this leather jacket, I had already planned to wear it but unfortunately I forgot to bid on it in time and some lucky person got it for $12.50.

Oh well, that’s life. Today I went shopping and all I bought was a pair of $0.50 shorts, I know that sounds unbelievable but they were really on sale for $0.50 at TJ Maxx. So most people probably hate TJ Maxx but I’m in love. Sure there are frumpy and nasty and unfashionable clothes, ugly purses, and hideous shoes but I love searching for cheap items. If I spend a ton of money on one piece the only thing I feel is guilty.

During my shopping trip today I also found one pair of the shoes below left at my local Forever 21 and I really like them. I don’t know whether to buy them or not though despite them being on sale for only $13.99.

Anyways I’m exhausted so I’m going to go dream of beaches.

School Blues...

So I’m addicted to caffeine. I have had at least 6 lattes in the past 2 days and last night I continued my trend of getting less than 4 hours of sleep per night. I’m a second semester senior life is supposed to be easy; unfortunately my teachers obviously don’t get that. My outfits have been pretty blah and I’ve been too tired to care however I have fallen in love with a few pieces on eBay.

While it’s currently too expensive for me I love the sweater below. The shape is amazing and it looks incredibly comfortable.

This peacock belt caught my eye and I don’t think anyone could ever have too many accessories.

This last item is the only one still in my bidding range; it’s currently at $12.50 with 1 day to go. I’m not a big fan on the sequins but I love the shape of the skirt!

Well I'm off to write my numerous paper and tons of calculus.

If Only I were Randy 'The Ram' Robinson...

My names Anne Michelle but a lot of people call me Annie. I'm 17 and I am finally going off to college in the fall (to where I'm not sure yet...). I live amidst corn and soybean fields in Illinois and I can’t wait to get out. I’m lucky enough to have traveled some of the world but I have so much more I want to see.

I’ve never had a blog before, so if anyone actually reads this bear with me. I recently fell in love with fashion, so recently in fact my closet still contains a good amount of Abercrombie and Hollister. I trying to update my closet on a super budget but unfortunately I live in a town with a single decent vintage store that can be quite expensive. I’m constantly searching eBay and online sites for sales and will post things that I find.

Last night I wore the most comfortable outfit ever to a valentine making party with friends and then to the movie The Wrestler with my boyfriend. He bought me this giant shirt and I’m quite in love with it.
