big style, small price

What’s this, another blog post? To think I used to do it nearly every day… but summer is a busy time. The last week or so has been a blur – but a fun, sunny, musical blur (U2! pool party! shopping! grilling!), so I’m definitely not complaining.

As a thanks for hooking her up with U2 tickets, my friend Andrea bought me this dress from H&M when we were walking around State St. the day after the concert:

Such a fun print and color palette, right? The best part? It was $15.

the tragic style of 16-year-old lauren alaina

All season on American Idol, Lauren Alaina Suddeth (yes, that is her real name; she prettied it up by just using her first and middle name for her journey to “superstardom” apparently) has had absolutely abysmal style. She’s even admitted that the stylists hate her choices and are frustrated by her, which is a little funny. Tonight, however, I was finally pushed to posting about her, as she wore this little number in the finale:

Oh, HONEY.

$36 (faux) leather & lace

Hi! We actually had some sunshine this morning! Which made me start to break a sweat taking these pics, no lie. But was it nice and toasty warm outside, too? Noooo, of course not!

Oh well! Happy with this, which has quickly become one of my new favorite outfits – and it seriously cost $36.

braided & bitten

Oh, hello! Let’s skip the I’m-a-bad-blogger part and get right to it, shall we?

My friend Julia invited me to a couple of concerts this week that I probably wouldn’t normally have gotten tickets for: 30 Seconds to Mars and My Chemical Romance – holy guyliner, Batman! But who can resist Jordan Catalano?! And who can turn down free shows? Not this girl!

While I am definitely not the, uh… key audience? for such shows, I thought I’d kinda “rock”-ify my hair a bit.

This is totally rock, right?

cheap & cute

No, the title of this post does not refer to me – how dare you insinuate I am a cheap date?! – but rather accessories. Behold:

I saw a woman on the good ol’ 36 bus wearing a cute purple hate with a bow on it, so I complimented her. She said “Payless!” with a kind of surprised expression that mirrored my own. So of course I had to stop, and I ended up finding what I believe is the same one in black – and only $12.99.

walk like an egyptian

Perhaps now and then you find yourself wondering, “What should I wear to an Egyptian-themed ‘three-quarters birthday’ party (planned only 4 days in advance) for which costumes are ‘strongly-encouraged’?”

Well, I don’t know what you’d wear, but I wore this:

I don’t know why this top (Express: size M) read vaguely Egyptian to me, but I didn’t have a lot to work with. I’d say it’s not bad for 4 days’ notice, right?

happy 2011!

Hope everyone had a great NYE! My night was, uh… eventful, to say the least! But I did rock the good old gold dress. And I made a post for it anyway.

From Express, years ago. It was just too perfect a party dress to pass up. And despite feeling like a stuffed sausage when I tried it on earlier in the week (ladies, you know it happens), I ended up feeling great in it.
