Hidden Talent


{Forever 21 dress for, wait for it, $24.80. Between engagement parties, weddings and graduations, I am going to need a lot of dresses this spring and summer. I plan on wearing it with either gold or nude sandals, gold jewelry ... and a tan because of the cut-out in the back, my favorite part of the dress!}

{I had been lusting over this Elizabeth and James blazer, but then I saw this H&M copy and couldn't resist spending a fraction of the price for the same look. The best part is, I can wear this all year in southern California}

{Although Anthroplogie is hardly a discount chain, this dress I had been eying for months was on sale and I had a gift card so I had to get it! It was shown in the sleepwear section, but I plan on belting in it the summer and wearing it with my black leather jacket in the meantime}

One of my hidden talents is being able to spot a Marc Jacobs copy at Forever 21 or a Chloe-inspired sweater at Urban Outfitters (true stories). Last weekend Kristine, Daniela and I went on a rare trip for the mall and I scored not once, not twice, but three times! I snapped these photos of my steals while getting ready for happy hour last night. Ian is normally my photographer but he wasn't home from work yet so I promise to show photos of myself actually wearing the clothes later on!
