It was February, and I was getting a bit tired of buying boots (I had already bought 4 pairs for winter and was losing space in my closet) but there was a sale at Charlotte Russe where if you bought 1 pair of shoes full price you would get the second pair for $15. Long story short, the sandals I'm wearing in the picture were $15.

The sandals above are from the new Steve Madden summer line. They're called Kasidy and can be purchased for $79.95.

Once again . . .pictured below . . .
Steve Madden $79.95
Charlotte Russe . . . worn by me . . . $15 bucks.

My sandals are in pretty good condition. They haven't fallen apart. They really don't show much wear and tear at all, and they seem to be the same quality as the Steve Madden Brand.

The savings . . . about $65. That's a whole second pair of shoes, if you choose.

Star Wars T-Shirt

Ok, this is old, but I wanted to post an example of how you can dress up any vintage t-shirt with a pretty necklace and a good sweater. The t-shirt was actually a birthday present from one of my best friends (she knows that my boyfriend is obsessed and I'm extremely supportive of his obsession...) The sweater was actually from Target and the necklace I found at Kohls. This was one of my favorite and most comfy outfits this past fall. I wore it with skinny jeans and knee-high cognac colored boots. :)

Leather Wrap Sandals by Steve Madden

Normally, I refuse to buy anything up and coming from the Steve Madden store, but Rachael and I had traveled to Walt Whitman Mall, and as luck should have it, they were having a wheel sale. Meaning, every customer was given the chance to spin a wheel-of-fortune-esq dial which gave the opportunity to save from 20% up to 50% percent of your entire purchase. Also there was an option of buy one get one 90% off. Rachael hit the 40% mark, and I got 35% off. We both walked out with pretty awesome sandals for A LOT cheaper than marked.

For me, it was $40.00 well spent.

More MK Shades -- Marshalls

So, I sat on my last pair of MK sunglasses and cracked them in half. Let me just tell you, I was devastated. I had picked them up for only $20 at Marshalls, and was seriously doubtful of that kind of luck again.

But then it happened anyway!

And I really do love this pair even more than the former.
