Thrifty

The rainy weather here seems to have finally cleared up!!! But, while the weather was crappy, to get out of my rainy day funk I did a little online window shopping at ModCloth and came across all these great graphic and animal prints that immediately caught my eye. And the best part is that some of these are selling for less than $30 right now…but I have every intention of being strong and sticking with my thrift store only shopping diet until September. I've got to get me a fancy business lady suit for the job market this fall and need to aggressively pinch my pennies!


Caught My Attention Top



Brush Hour Skirt



Animal Song Dress



Are there any special summer items that you're coveting this season?

But think how amazing that first top would look under your professional lady suit.

I love the brush hour skirt.

I am dying to purchase some cute summer dresses, but I'm on a strict no shopping ban right now. I need to save money. Believe me no shopping is not any fun.

Oooh I'm coveting all these pieces but I really want a Michael Kors bag!!! Maybe I'll treat myself for a back to school splurge! I've already failed the 30x30 shopping ban, only 13 days in...

These are some seriously stylin picks! I am trying to be well behaved in reguards to my shopping but it's so hard with gorgeous summer pieces like these. I love the Animal song maxi dress, I'm already styling it in my head.

See, I'm usually pretty good when I find things I like in stores. I'll typically pass and hit the thrift shop. But when I see things I like online, thats a bit more difficult. Weird huh?

Have a great day!

I wish that I had cool thrifting abilities. I would love to find awesome steals for low prices, and I am super jealous of people (like you!) who can do this.

I love that JOY top! It reminds me of stained glass, or butterfly wings.

Also, have you been over to Lulu's? I have found that they often carry the same items of Modcloth, but at much lower prices!
