Why didn't anyone ever tell me about Tuesday nights at the mall?



Romper thingy and necklace: F21, Blazer and purse: Thrifted, Shoes: Steve Madden, Watch: Vintage Gucci, Earrings: Sorelli (I think?)
So last night after studying aaaalllll day and then taking an exam at 5:30, I decided it would be a good idea to take my brain dead {and largely lacking in self control} self to the mall. {?} And who woulda thunk it? Aparantly no one goes to the mall on Tuesdays aannndd they have these amazing sales. I feel like the mall and I have this dirty little secret thing going on now. And I've shared it with you friends. No guarantees about your mall or anything, but if you'd like to be my shopping buddy {and you have an unlimited checking account for things like shoes and designer jeans and the new White House Black Market they are putting in... I kid. But if you do, we can so be friends.} Anywhoo, I walked past Gap just for inspiration. And to drool. And to my surprise, there were four racks marked $10, $15, $15, and $20 filled with goodies that were practically all in my size. It was like the Gap gods were speaking to me, I'm tellin' ya. And who am I not to listen to the Gap gods? $50 ($210 originally), two dresses, and one blouse later, I felt much better. Shopping therapy really might work guys. {Disclaimer: I really do not worship any shopping gods.}

In other news, today is how to dress your romper up and wear it to work day. Or return to the early 90's day. I really can't decide, all I know is that I want to watch Pretty Woman asap. Cue the Prince.

Until tomorrow, "I just want your extra time and your.....KISS."

I don't care what they say, retail therapy is real! Hope your test went well.

I love it! I don't think I've every seen anyone dress up a romper so wonderfully. The blazer is perfect and I love your little purse!


Rissy said...

I have to confess... I actually gasped when I saw the romper. I am in love with rompers and must have one with long pants!

Hmmm I work in a mall... maybe I should go browse other stores when I get off work... oh wait... I promised myself I wouldn't do that. Rats!


Natalie said...

I only go to the mall on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, I love having all the stores and "sales" to myself :)

Gentri said...

WHAT?! guess i'm goin to Gap!!

Sydney said...

I agree with shopping therapy! Whole heartedly!
And I believe that at my mall it's Mondays... or really late when everyone is ready to leave so they give us all discounts: "oh you blessed thing, you're so sweet! I'll give you an extra 50% off!"
Heck. Yes.

You look fantastic!! I love the romper thingy! Oh and my college, which is in a downtown, is right across the street from a mall. I spent so much money when I went to class. I had to park in the mall parking garage, walk through the mall and then browse and then get to class. It was heaven! hehe... And of course my classes were Tuesday night:)

Candice said...

Could you possibly be any more funny/adorable? I am so jealous of you! Can we meet some day? Or at least be blogger friends?

Hitting the mall after exam season is a must for me, can't think of a better way to ease my mind and relax, not going on weekends bring always surprises! Love the jumper and blazer, totally corporate chic!

Girl is there any look you can't rock?? I don't think so. Loving the romper on you, and I have never liked the romper on anyone before.

Also wanted to let you know that I passed on the Sunshine Award to you. Feel free to check it out!

Hayley said...

You look SO much like Kate Middleton to me. even more so in this navy color! Beautiful!

Hayley said...

That first photo, the pose, your hair, the outfit everything totally reminds me of the Victoria's Secret catalogue!! Your photos have been lovely lately!


JB said...

I sure do love a good sale. When it comes to sales, who really cares how much you spend? It's all about how much you save. ;)

Retail therapy is the BEST. And you are rockin' that jumpsuit!

marcella said...

I love rompers, jumsuits, whatever you wanna call them :)

Aubsent From Texas said...

Gertrude said...

Such great deals! I wish my mall had similar deals.

melissa said...

i was sold on a romper with shorts, but you have just SOLD me on a romper with pants.

lookin' awesome lady!!

StyleID said...

Great way of wearing a romper .... looks Chic and classy.
Yes, I think they do those mid-week sales on 'low season' (like other than Christmas). I am a FAN of Gap and a year ago paid like $45 for some flats that got last week for $24 .... well, I guess is the price to wear it first :) but Yes, its worth the trip to the mall on Tuesday or Wednesday.

Abby said...

I love finding good sales like that! And I still love that romper!!

Blanca said...

love this romper ! only few can pull those off and you are one of those few ! love the jacket too


Meg said...

KT said...
