don't talk about frenching your dog when i'm already in the nurses office


So i went shopping today. The shop above, F21, I didn't actually buy anything in because it was mayhem as usual and the line was ridiculous. I did really enjoy the storefront though. I wish people would do this with what they bought there instead of your typical slouchy boots and skinnies.

Summary of my trip. Click to enlarge, natch.


Blah blah blah, anyway this is what I ended up getting. From Marshalls, which I actually have been dying to get back to to buy the shoes I wanted before. I went to Marshalls Shoe Megastore (two of them) and strangly enough, the smaller one had the shoes I wanted more. I didn't settle until we went back and these were the last 7.5 left, the black ones.

I heart them so. I was debating whether to get the blue gladiators from last time as well as these. I narrowed it down to those from 7 previous, aren't you proud? Everything I liked was half the price of what they'd usually go for so it was pretty satisfying to go to the register and know how much I was saving. So many choices....I'm going back next week....unhealthy obsession in 3,2,1..

The shirt is almost long enough to be a dress on me but it's alright as a top nevertheless. Denim cut offs scream to me with this shirt. It reminds me of whipped cream and The Science of Sleep. (favorite movie ever, by the way.) I wasn't sure if it was my style but what's fashion if not experimentation? From Marshalls theCube.

Close ups of everything.

Dress, black shoes, white skimmers.

So I' going to watch Amelie now and drink tea. Night.

I swear I'm the only person who dislikes gladiators, but that window looks lovely. And PAPER BAG SKIRTS ARE LOVEEE <3

Amelia said...

I love both pairs of shoes and I'll be interested to see what you do with the shirt. Yeah, I hate how crowded and messy F21 always is, and also how everyone wears their stuff the same way. I'm not against trends, so I'm not against F21 for that reason, but it seems like style should be about reinterpreting trends to fit yourself. Thus, as you said, wearing tops from F21 with skinny jeans is not style. Ahahaha, I don't think I've ever used "thus" in a comment before--school is starting to get to me.

I WANT A PAPER BAG SKIRT SOOOO BAD.

Looks like your shopping trip reaped bounty galore.

I love Amelie. I hate long lines in stores. Why does everyone want to go shopping at the same time as me???

Stephanie said...

Re your comment - Is that a challenge? If you ever come to Chicago (or I go to NY), I will take you DOWN. XD

I too love paper bag skirts, so cute
I love your shoes as always.

That is all.

I am so fascinated with the white top I think I'll dream about it tonight!

And I just love the black (they're black, no?) pumps. There's this edginess AND class to them that makes me crave them.

Incredible shopping:)

rachel said...

WOWOWOWOWOW! how can you wish you didn't live in america?! i'd trade australia for jersey ANY DAY :D


your buys remind me of how much i miss op-shopping :(


exam block = no time to shop


p.s: tap me :)

Wendy said...

Agreed- about the F21 thing. Everyone and their mom shops there but I never see good use to come out of it. I really like the clothes they have (b/c they're cheap and knock offs! Thats how I roll.) but everyone ends up looking the same.

But Marshall is the best, they have shoes gems quite often.

Grace said...

Hey! Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog! You are a gorgeous girl with an awesome blog. I'd be happy to add you to my blogroll.

I have several things to say so bear with me whilst I write a novel in this tiny comment box:

1. that top/dress is gorgeous and I am majorly jealous

2. zee outfit below ees see-mply magnifique dah-ling (note the funny accent)

3. I would basically die and go to heaven if we met up in New York...'nuff said

4. stephanie and I don't actually go to the same school, but we both go to chicago public schools.....and we almost met up with each other! it would have been so weird/crazy.

Belle said...

wahhh! thanks for all the comments friends!

urban audrey: dude just email me (or do you have aim?) and mos def we'll be able to hang out, for serious. xD i know you're not going to like rape me or something so seriously, just name the place and time i'm there.

Fashion Slacker said...

what is the "science of sleep" about? i've been curious for a while now... but anyway, love the stuff you got. :)

Cupcakes and Cashmere said...

i adore these nine west shoes and i've been debating getting a pair of my own. i love how you can wear them with denim shorts for summer, then pair them with textured tights for fall. nice going!

Belle said...

the science of sleep is a love story situated in france, with the main guy being kind of mental (in A WONDERFUL WAY) and the girl he loves being decidedly less. i do not justice with explaining it but Charlotte gainsbourg is in it and she's one of my idols. More about it here. :)

c&c - thank you! i'm proud of myself haha.
