I'm Having Fun Don't Put Me Down



What I'm wearing:
*Forever 21 Abstract Squares Print Tunic (similar here and here)
*Steve Madden Nataliaa Platform Sandal (similar here)
*anthropologie Mint Drop Necklace (similar here and here)

This loose and breezy tie tunic is one that I took home from Vegas (stolen from S's suitcase). I love the voluminous sleeves, they make me feel fancy! To make myself even fancier, I added a fun necklace that I've been neglecting lately, since it's been staring at me from it's hook on the wall.

Do you know what's better than new shoes? New shoes that were on sale. I've been wanting to join the wooden platform sandal bandwagon for awhile, but didn't want to shell out $100+ for these Steve Maddens even though my friend A was rocking them and I was super jealous. But after I kept seeing them on both Joelle and Emily, I decided to check them out for myself in store, hoping they were on sale. They were, and the sale shoes were Buy One, Get One for $19. The sandals were marked down to $50, so my total for both pairs (yes, I had to get the cognac as well) was under $70.



Sale shoes definitely make me smile. Retail therapy is the best for a breakup right? Margaritas with a friend (thanks L!) also help too. I also definitely have La Roux's "Bulletproof" on heavy rotation on my iPod. Still obsessed with that song...

  1. I love that tunic, I saw it in the store but wasn't sure about the length...
    I'm sorry about the breakup (or maybe not?) Is that why you are moving? If I'm being too nosy, ignore me :)

  5. Aww break ups are never fun, but everything happens for a reason. You'll see it in a few months when you're WAY better off without him. :)

    Retail therapy and salon therapy. I love a nice new hairdo and a fresh tan after a break up. Haha...listen to me...like I'm so experienced or something.

  7. Retail therapy is always best for a break-up. So sorry to hear that you NEED retail therapy but glad you were able to get some.

    That tunic is FANTASTIC and I love the shoes. I would've gotten both colors too! Great sale score!
