Just Me And Proenza...

It's Thursday. YES!!!

 This week has been sooo dreary that I literally can't take it anymore. It has rained everyday since Saturday and I'm sick of it! I really wish it would just snow already. Tonight would be great! Then I would have an extra long weekend!

Anyhow, this weekend will be much like that of last weekend-full of DIY projects and shop updates. Last weekend, I worked on these hand crafted picture frames. This go round I want to work on making some red flare leg pants. Stay tuned to see how that project turns out.

The rest of my time will be spent planning my trip to the Presidential Inauguration on Monday. I'm super excited about that!

I'm also super excited that I had the chance to score this Proenza Schouler sweatshirt on clearance from Target while Neiman Marcus was featuring their holiday line there.

While searching through my wardrobe, I noticed that not only was my sweater collection fairly slim, but that I owned absolutely NO sweatshirts-only hoodies that need to be replaced because they are now years and years old.


I had been eyeing this sweatshirt since the line debuted so I was super excited when it finally got marked down to 70% off.

Because I don't do full price honey-no way, no how! Not if I can help it.

Every piece of this outfit was purchased on clearance or at a rock bottom redline price.


Even down to the accessories. The watch was 50% off and the ring was $5.99 at NY & Co.

And this BCBG bracelet was also $5.99 at Dillards.

The shorts were all of $2 from Gap during one of their end of season clearance sales...

And oh yeah, back to the matter at hand-THE SWEATSHIRT! I got it for $8.98 as opposed to $30. I'm also in love with the fact that it can be dressed down like I've done with this look or it can be dressed up with some cute leather pants and sparkly heels. It's so versatile. I love great buys; they make me giddy.

 Can't you tell that I'm happy!!!???

I'm so glad that I got it when I did because it was perfect for a casual lunch date with my girlfriend.

Now, if only I can continue to find great sweatshirts to add to my collection my life would be complete.
