spotted & striped gap goodies

After making at least 3 trips to Gap to find enough stuff worthy of spending my 50%-off Groupon on, last night I hit the gold mine. Or the navy mine, as it were.

This felt like it came together really effortlessly, much more so than yesterday.

gap city flat

I went to two different Gaps tonight to scope out merch that I might be able to use my killer 50% off Groupon on, but I only found one cardigan I really loved; and since you have to use the entire coupon at once (can’t split up your purchases like a gift card), I decided to wait and save it.

That doesn’t mean I left empty-handed, though, especially since they were throwing around 30% off coupons!

So I got this!

“What is it?” you ask? A bag! And what’s inside? Let me show you.

candy-coated, soda-shop frock

Despite the fact that this dress isn’t really vintage or retro at all, I get a candy-coated, soda-shop vibe from it – perhaps it’s the colors or the shapes, which remind me of candies or fizzy soda bubbles.

In any case, it’s definitely light and flowy and fun.

gypsy, tramp – thief?

Good morning! Tough to say what’s good about it, though, as a) it’s Monday, b) it’s a glum day, and c) I was wide awake at 2:30 am and tossed and turned for a good while after that. Then I forgot my coffee at home and felt stabby on the ridiculously stop-n-go (emphasis on the stop) CTA. As my beloved friend Kate would say, there is way too much Monday in today!

But whatever, at least I’m having a little fun.

I feel like this is, quite obviously, the sister outfit to my last post – but while that girl was the preppy cheerleader, this one is the boho art student. Or something.

the white stripes

Sorry, no Jack or Meg White here – just an abundance of white stripes!

Ok, maybe not an abundance. I was worried it was perhaps too stripey and/or too matchy-matchy. What say you?

that lavender blonde

Guys, guess what – it’s already hump day! [Insert creepster Will Schuester seduction here.] Thaaank God, Allah, Xenu, Gaga, etc.

You’ve already seen this $7 dress (maybe several times), but here you are anyway:

Yep, that’s right, $7 for a silk Simply Vera dress (size 4) on clearance at Kohl’s. I’ve already written about that before, but I’m no less proud of the score today. Tan flats: Nine West.

warning: contains violet content

T.G.I.F.!

Just another belted cotton dress today, but it’s hot & humid & oh, did I mention Friday? I had such a difficult time waking up this morning. Anyone else? I just stood in my bathroom leaning against the counter for like 5 straight minutes at one point, blinking. Fact: I need more sleep. However… plenty of time to sleep when I’m dead. ;)
