Shopping Hiatus {2}

Of course by now you know I shopped. I bought myself a birthday outfit, well technically my birthday is not till the 22nd, but we have a few weddings to shoot this month so I went ahead and got it....




Both were on a ridiculous sale, plus if you have an Anthropologie card they give you 15% off your total purchase for your birthday month. I plan to have the top tucked into the skirt and I bought a wide stretchy belt from Banana Republic for $15 dollars. You get a $15 dollar gift card with your banana card for your birthday too, so I used it. The top will also look good untucked with a pair of jeans, very versatile if I say so myself. So all in all I feel like I am styling and cute for not that much money. I am sure you will be getting pictures sometime next week. It has such photoshoot possibilities.

*Embellished Bayou has a post about buying new versus DIY and she included me, yeah! You know me I just love a good DIY.*

Very chic! You are one smart shopper. Don't you just love the Banana Republic rewards program!?!

Happy early B-day, I was born on the 22nd too, different month.

If one must break a spending hiatus, at least you did so with some really smart and cute purchases. Banana Republic and Anthropologie are my two favorite stores as well (I stalk their clothing, watching and waiting for it to go on sale...).

And here's another happy early birthday wish. Oddly enough, I was also born on the 22nd, different month. Maybe we 22nd ladies naturally gravitate toward each other?

Really like your new outfit.
I have what I guess
would qualify as an
"addiction" to white
blouses and shirts.
Love them!

Why did I not know about the Anthro birthday discount? I was just in there last month (my b-day month)! Live and learn, I guess. Happy early b-day to you!

Very good purchase:) And I think birthday purchasea should be allowed--early or not!

Anna said...

I love finding great deals at Anthro. I bought some stuff with my birthday discount last month. Whenever people say they can't shop there because it's too expensive I always say, "shop the sales!!" Your new outfit is super cute!!

Happy Birthday!

AlliJean said...

I had no idea about the birthday discount either, and now I'm a little upset that I spent $400 there earlier this month and didn't get it. What can I do?
