Day 26

It is Monday and I am ready to go! While the end result of this photo shoot is probably my favorite to date, it started off a little rocky, as you can see from the bloopers haha Photographer spotted this shopping cart and desert and I was immediately sold on the location. So we began and let's just say it was a little awkward until I just relaxed and had fun! I got this necklace at Kohl's...I know..Kohl's..I feel like I am the last person to discover this place. When I had first gone in there, this necklace was $54...umm what? Dana Buckman who are you and why are you charging $54 for this stupid clown necklace!!?! I then went back about 2 weeks later and there it was under all of the sale jewelry, marked down to $4...yeah that wasn't a typo...it was $4!!! Now while I was excited and immediately changed my mind from thinking it was a clown necklace to thinking of the possibilities of this necklace I realized something...if something can go from $54 to $4...does that mean it really is only worth $4. I really start to lose respect for brands that do this sort of thing. It's like Banana Republic...one day it's $180 then next day it's $20...anyway, that is probably one reason why I never buy full price. I mean do you really need it NOW versus two weeks later?

I will be posting a Thrifters Anonymous Link Up Shortly, would love everyone to participate! My shoes and my jeans were thrifted from Savers, and the shirt was on sale for $7, and my necklace was on sale for $4. This is a perfect example of a Thrifters Anonymous outfit, also take a look at the Thrifters Anonymous page for examples of other ideas and link ups if you are wondering!

Have a lovely Monday !!!

  3. $4?! You are my hero.

    This is such a simple outfit in theory, jeans, heels and a blouse, but the texture of the blouse plus the cuffed jeans and the necklace takes it up SO many levels. You look awesome!!!

    Come take a look inside A Working Mom's Closet

  9. Hey, we're both aiming to collect "1000 Followers For All" in a group on 20sb. I guess I'm one of those guys.

    But the shopping cart in your photos made me remember a wonderful website about a classification system for stray shopping carts http://www.strayshoppingcart.com/

    Cheers
