Orange!!!!

These were my last purchases (made about a month ago) before I put myself on a only-thrift-stores shopping diet for the rest of the summer. I did this because I am going to be going on the job market this fall and I plan to invest in a suit for interviews (hopefully campus visits, job talks, etc.) and wanted to save a bit of a cash. But anyways…I love this tank and orange purse (both acquired for less than $20). I’m really into orange these days. Like a lot. In fact, you may remember this purse from my recent blogger meet up.







purse: H&M / tank: F21 / shorts: H&M (for $3!!!!) / boots: Kamik, Olivia model


For full coverage of my recent epic blogger meet up, check out Chic on the Cheap, Amber Blue Bird, Closet Fashionista, and Star-Crossed Smile.

And has anyone else heard the recently announced collaboration between Donatella Versace and H&M? Here’s a link if not. Get your excited pants on.

No one ever truly grows out of their punk phase! I went to Victoria HS.

I'm really into orange as well, especially lipstick but that purse is such a great shape. And I cannot believe those shorts were $3!!! What a steal!

That pop of orange is a making a great accessory to the outfit. I am loving this outfit, the top is super cute and I've always had 'my thing' for those boots :)
PS: Thanks for your comment, I am not a picture person but enjoy dressing up myself a lot.

No outfit is complete without pet hair! Cute bag.

Santina said...

I actually think the cat hair brings a little something extra to this look! What outfit is complete without it? I mean, can you really leave the house without some? I know I can't!

I love the pop of color that the bag brings to this look, and those boots are amazing!

That purse is fantabulous! I'm not much of an orange person, but if I saw that purse, I would make an exception! Also, cat hair is pretty much normal for my posts these days. Gah, what with the shedding and all. You'd think they'd just lick it all off.

I have the same purse in brown! I got it for $10, it's one of my faves! I love how you styled your bright orange one with the black and white print, looks good : )

I would put on my excited pants but they only sell those at H&M, maybe Zara too, neither of which are anywhere near where I habitate. Sad me!! Anyway I'll live vicariously through you and your orange purse, I guess. Cuz they're making me happy enough. ;)

I think I am in lust with this bag. And not just because of its obnoxious orange color.
Also, I am way in love with your whole outfit. You look gorrrrgeous.

Amber Blue Bird said...

I had not heard about that collaboration!! My excited pants are so on!

hurricanekerrie said...

My sister just bought the same purse (but in brown) over the weekend! We didn't see any oranges at the store... I like that thrift store-only diet. Maybe when I'm done with my 15 for 15 and I'm itching to buy something I don't need, I'm going to just go to thrift stores. I know I'll sorely miss Target though... :)

Kavery said...

Love the orange bag. Can see you wearing it so often.

She is Sara said...

Omg I really love that purse! I am diggin the shorts and tights look, I have not rocked that in a long time. It's too hot here!

Tinfoils Tiaras said...

Great great look- one of my faves on you for sure! I am insanely jealous of your thrifting scores- makes we want an orange bag! Don't you just love cat hair? I keep a lint roller at home, in the car, in my purse (mini) and at work and it still sticks all over me! Good thing they're cute!

blorange dice said...

LOVE the orange bag. haha also i love the title of this post. you sound so excited!!

p.s. about your comment on my post about being a badass: i laughed about what you wrote, then told my roomie, then i told her about your blog and how cool you are... it all concluded with, "yeahh, she [you] is a badass for sure!" just fyi

LyddieGal said...

The abstract tank is cool, and you can't beat those $3 shorts!!

I love the orange on you...that purse is a great find! As are those shorts, you certainly can't beat the price!

I am so stoked for the Versace collection. I think that Donatella has the right attitude towards fashion to create a fun capsule collection!

Orange has always been my happy color too! A Versace and H&M collab? Wow, I have my excited pants on...
