I've been on a long shoot this week, so my guest & co-blogger fwb is back with a fab post for Fashion Fridays...have a fashion post today? Head on over and link up with Kori!
I am all for a good budget buy. There is nothing like finding that perfect piece at F21 or H&M and being able to say, “you like this? $15 bucks!”. Then there is the inevitable rush of knowing that you look great and you have the admiration of all for being fiscally responsible.
And then there are the times when you just want to spend money….and you have long conversations with yourself trying to justify cashing in a few thousand from your employee stock plan so that you can buy Chanel. Just a tip for all of you Besties…DO NOT have this conversation with your husband after buying a brand new house…I speak from experience. I mostly find myself in this situation while catching up on the blogs we love and trying to figure out just how the heck I am going to get myself to Europe or to LA so that I can shop at Zara and buy that skirt…and those shoes…and maybe that blazer.
Speaking of Zara, they have recently made it possible for my dream to come true! They can’t fly me out of Ohio, but they DID make online shopping available in the U.S. Zara makes you feel like a million bucks, without the need to delay retirement a few years…
At some point, my sweet two year old and I started calling each other besties. She has other besties too, like her wa-wa's (aka grandmas), her favorite sitters, sometimes her brother, and other "friends" that live in her crib. One day she received a pair of pink leopard print rain boots and that night she insisted on sleeping with her new goodies....they were brand new, of course, and hadn't been worn. She snuggled those boots like a worn out loved teddy bear. This blog is to keep track of all my besties and pink leopard print wellies. xo
