    Ama, I also saw them on facebook and they do look awesome!

    Well, yesterday I bought two more skirts for work from Target. Both my brother and hubby said that the prints reminded them of boxer shorts. I think they are cute!
    This is one of them...
    [​IMG] :eek: (realized going on their website that the skirt was in the juniors department.... oh well, still cute).

    They don't have the other one I got on their website, but it's tan with dog prints. I thought it was cute and whimsical. I'm going for more of a retro, fun look this year.

    Although, I'm not really sure what to wear with these skirts. I was thinking a tank tap with a cardigan. And cute flats. I am horrible at dressing up (hence why I tend to always wear jeans and a top).

    It's a cute skirt.

    I love skirts, but I wear them more in spring & summer. I've picked up a few more for fall & winter with boots being so popular this year.

    My gold tights looked great with my sweater dress & brown boots, but I hadn't one the sit down test. Too short! :eek: The hem was right at my butt when I sat down. So, I went with gray leggings and black boots instead. I'll save the gold tights for my denim pencil skirt.

    I tried Macy's store, online, and the Hue website. They don't have my size. :( Now that I know how short the dress really is, I'm going to need to switch to leggings anyway . . . although that search has been exhausting as well.

    The gray leggings I wore today weren't a petite cut, so by the time the crotch was where it belonged, the waistband was under my boobs. :lol:

    Great deal! I've been wanting a pair like that too, but I don't want to spend a ton on them.

    Woohoo, stg!

    I've probably spent more on clothes in the past 4 months than I have in the past 4 years! It's so nice being able to shop anywhere that I want to.

    I used a gift card from my students on some good clearance deals on Kohl's website the beginning of last week, and then I got a 30% offer. So I reordered most of it, and will take the first batch back. There were a couple of really pretty lace dresses; I'm really hoping one of them will work. I need a new Easter dress this year.

    I haven't spent any money on clothes since July, but I just spent $100 online at Talbots (my fav!) and will be getting a pair of ballet flats, a blouse and a tote/purse. Can't wait until they get here:D

    I bought a laptop today. Finally. I have been looking for 3 weeks. I really wanted one with Windows 7, but a lot of them sold out over the Christmas season and are not being discontinued. Without coming back in stock. I bit the bullet and got one with Windows 8. So far, I am annoyed :|

    We found a photographer! After searching online for months and interview three different people, we found a husband/wife duo we really like! (It counts as a purchase because we have to pay them ;) .) This is a huge weight off my chest. Now we need to get engagement photos done.

    B&BW had a one day sale on shower gels a couple days ago, $5! I bought two. Today I picked up a necklace and a bracelet at Claires to go with my dress. Tomorrow will probably find me looking for a new umbrella since the wind last night broke mine.

    Expensive septic tank repairs (not fun, but necessary!)

    Some luscious quilting fabric.

    Two new cross-stitch patterns.

    Tank tops for my younger daughter; I don't know how she goes through them so fast!

    I found a brand new in sealed box $150 retail photo printer for $25 at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore shop. Went in looking for some vintage wood trim for a house repair. Didn't find that, but was thrilled to find the printer.

    My old photo printer wasn't compatible with my new computers, and my old all-in-one that printed decent photos died. My new wireless all-in-one prints crappy photos.

    Great score today!
