Things I bought on black friday.

top: ann taylor   l   blazer: jcrew   l   belt: f21

It's kinda sad... but on the plus side, I think about all the money I saved from NOT shopping and I'm happy again.. Hah optimism. Now on to worrying about the many Christmas gifts I need to get before December 25th. Which might I add, I haven't started yet. And now that I'm married, the shopping list just doubled. But you know, no pressure.


  1. I like how you combined the belt with that top! <3

  2. Very cute outfit! I am a huge fan of ruffles. I did not buy anything either, but it is only a matter of time before the madness spreads and I'll be buying gifts. as long as I don't buy for myself it should all be good. lol

  3. Cute outfit! Yay for saving money.

  22. I like this professional outfit! you look....professional ;) hehe
    I wish I could do the woosh hair like it's swept so beautifully to one side...*sigh* I can dream.

    you're buying bm?! so excited!! what are you looking at?? it really depends on what you're buying since each material is a little different. The regular printed ones are quite stretchy. The other ones such as liquid leggings tend to have less stretchier material and you might need to go up a size.
    But overall I think you're so small that you should be a size small. I wear size 26 for jeans and I wear size small for bm leggings :) are you targeting the 50% off sale? :) bc if you are, good choice!


  23. Cute look, I love the ruffles on your top!


  24. It's still good to save! It was better that way. LOL. :)

    Happy weekend :)
