Urban Outfitters Has Taken My Wallet's Soul...

Everytime, every-frickin-time I find an awesome sale at Urban Outfitters -particularly when I don't want to. Who wouldn't want to find great deals at a favorite store? Me and my sad wallet Jane. Yes, I have named my wallet and yes, I am nuts. She changes forms and looks, but she still holds the goods and goes pretty much everywhere with me. I figured, why not name her? She helps me shop or not shop, she tends to be a bit fickle though. She and I need to have a conversation about consistancy and how she has none. Well, the other day Jane signed her soul away. Now she and I are really in for it...
This fabulous jumper was $9.99. I mean, darnit, how could I resist. Of course it was the only size 12, and it had to be mine. It's a little roomy so I'm thinking it would look cute for work with a shirt underneath. We'll see what I come up with. I wore this to a friend's 30th birthday. It was pretty darn cold and I should have worn tights (really it should have been thermals, it was freezing) but, I couldn't resist the red knee highs paired with the wedges.
Fitting Room Chronicles: When I was trying this dress on I thought the only zipper was the one at the top. It was tough to get on, getting it off...well, that was even more of a challenge. I got totally stuck for a minute. It was "arms over the head panic mode". I had to keep reminding myself, "If you got it on, you can get it off." Imagine my surprise and delight, when I found the zipper at the side once I finally got it off. I felt extrordinarily lame, but I was lame and a dress richer. Now that I knew I could get it off and on easily, it was sold,. Without the side zipper? Not so much.
Time to go pick out my outfit for tomorrow. I hope I do a better job than a did last night. I had a not so awesome outfit day today. It just felt awkward. You win some, you lose some. Gotta hit the mark tomorrow so my day goes a bit better...

I LOVE that dress. This outfit looks so great on you. I'm not a big knee socks fan, but this is a good look with the dress.

10 bucks? Wow, that's amazing! It is super cute...I would love to see it with knee-high lace-up brown boots. :)
