WIWW: Insanely Fabulous Buys!

Still haven't had time to catch up on here. I literally have 3 post that I've started and 'saved'...maybe I'll get around to finishing those up this week! For now, here's WIWW with Pleated Poppy!

I  can't remember what days were what so we'll have to skip over that piece of information! 


Shirt: Banana
Jeans: Gap
Jacket: Banana (you can see the print better in the bottom pic)
Belt: Gap - super old!
Shoes: Ann Taylor Loft
Bracelet: Charming Charlie
Earrings: Target

So...If you didn't know, I confess that I deal with stress by shopping. I don't know why but it's one of the few things that helps me settle down and handle life. I've been under a lot of stress the past 3 weeks so I've been at the stores more than usual. Thankfully I'm a frugal shopper and I rarely {if ever} pay full price for something. Seriously, I don't know the last time I did pay full retail price - - - hmm...maybe one of my last bags?! Anyway, last week I stopped in my Gap Clearance Center {GCS} in Hebron, Kentucky and scored BIG TIME. Sometimes it's pretty picked over and I maybe find 4 items. But not this time baby - I walked out with all the items below for $75.00. I just LOVE a good deal!

Here's what I got:
  • 3 work-appropriate tanks
  • 3 shirts
  • 1 cardigan
  • 1 button up shirt
  • 1 long sleeve shirt
  • 1 cardigan (Super cute! Most expensive item at $12!)
  • 2 belts
  • 1 headband
  • 1 pair of jean capris
  • 1 necklace 
  • 1 pair of tights (not pictured)
I mean seriously, is that not insane?! And half of them still had tags attached! LOVE!

Here's the first outfit I put together. It was a real stretch for me to combine the print tank with the cardigan and jewel belt. It's definitely not something I would have normally put together but I've been inspired from seeing other WIWW posts. Turns out I really liked it!
