Let me tell you how it all went down.
I saw another blogger with the most AMAZING pewter bag I ever laid eyes on...
And at that moment, the seed was planted.
I wanted something similar, but not an EXACT replica.
So I searched and searched for something in my price range.
Not, pewter, but it still made a STATEMENT in all of its metallic splendor!
It wasn't until yesterday that I laid eyes on my new baby at Shi!
[Looks Black Here...But the Store Does Carry it in Black & the Color of My Bag...Pewter]
It's wonderful. My favorite part is the contrasting gold hardware that makes it oh so versitile!
When I looked at the price-tag, I was even more thrilled.
Long story short, the bag led me to buy these wonderful strappy platforms by Jessica Simpson.
And, on another blog I saw how songstress Alicia Keys rocked a pristine white and ebony blocked dress.
I was minding my own business in Marshall's on a Friday night, (or some other week night), and I came across this dress...
ANnnnnnnnnnnnD they had the AUDACITY to have my size.
The price was right, The dress normally retails for $138.00. I got it for about 1/4 of that price.
So I bought it...Without knowing where I was going to wear it.
At the 7th hour, I texted my classmate and told her I'd celebrate Resurrection Sunday with her.
I hadn't bought a new Easter outfit for years.
I bought this one without even knowing that's what it was going to be for.
