I had to get new tires this weekend. At Wal-Mart. It was pretty lame. I mean, who wants to spend almost $500 on TIRES? Not me. Or an hour hanging out at Wal-Mart? Again, not me. Then the guy changing them broke my hubcap. He seemed to think this was going to enrage me, but it didn’t. I didn't really care to be honest. And then he gave me not 1 new hubcap, but 4. And they are SO SHINY that they made my husband laugh. Because my car, you guys? Not shiny. Not a glamorous car at all. I have always been a hand-me-down car kind of girl, due to my horrible driving skills. Nathan gets the new cars. I get the old. There is less drama that way when I inevitably scratch, dent and then wreck said cars.
(Oh hey tangent!~) My point is that while I was there, I had a look at the clothes. And I was impressed. I ended up getting 3 tops for 10 bucks each. Not on sale. Just 10 bucks. Retail. And they are cute. I also had a look at the new Miley and Max line and while I didn’t feel it was suited to my body shape, they did have a lot of cute stuff if you are more of a straight up and down shape.
Anywhoodle, this blouse was on of the 3 I picked up (for $10 bucks each!)
It’s a bib front tunic hippy blouse number, and I got a ton of compliments on it at work. And in true bargain lover form, I told every single one of the people who complimented me where I got it, that they had other colors, and how much it was.
In other news, over a year and a half after cutting them, my bangs are finally long enough to braid and tuck to the side again. I am so glad to get a break from the Baby Morrissey hair-do, you have no idea. I like it, and I still think it’s cute, but I have felt married to it for far too long. They are still not long enough to blend into the rest of my hair, but at least this is something different.
The blouse has so many colors!~ I loved that it had the little bits of grey, which meant I could wear grey shoes with it. I have a soft spot for grey shoes.
This photo serves no purpose. I just liked it.
A gold cuff…
And owl earrings. I made these myself. The owls are available at Michael’s (and I think I even saw them in silver last time I was there), and all you need are two owls and a couple of ear wires. Easy peasy. I got lots of compliments on these as well. Less than 10 bucks, and too easy not to make!
