thrifty thursday. un-girly accessories. June 18, 2009

I’m pretty sure that I made that word up, “un-girly.” Oh, well. That’s what this blog is all about: making up shit. It’s what I do. Actually, I have no idea what I’m typing right now, so I’m just going to stop. This week, I found five different accessories that girly-girls would probably not wear, but I like them anyway. In ascending order, here they are:

Coinbeast Coin Purse by Blue Q

First up is this hilarious, quirky, adorable coin-eating monster coin purse. Sure, it’s not girly, but it’s completely unexpected, and you will get the craziest reactions from people, I think. Such as, “What the fuck is that?” and “You’re fucking weird, man…” Priceless. Except not really because it costs $6.50 (almost priceless) here, at Plasticland.

pinstripe fedora.

Papaya is selling this great fedora in a versatile grey, and you can buy it here, for their sale price of $7.99. How many girly chicks do you know who wear hats?! Yes, I just made a generalization, and yes, I’m being sarcastic in order to make up for the fact that I couldn’t think of anything witty to say about this piece. Thank you.

My Pet Octopus Ring

I think this ring is beyond cool, but octopi are definitely not know for being a girl’s best friend. At least, I don’t think they are… Regardless, if the thought of those little legs on your finger and this octopus adoringly looking up at you make you smile instead of shudder, pick on up here, at ModCloth, for $7.99. He (doesn’t it look like a he?) comes in antique gold (which looks like brass) and this silver, and ModCloth also sells a cuff and necklace.

To me, guns are a bad-ass accessory, but I know that a lot of people don’t like them. But! A fake gun on a necklace will do nobody any harm. So get yours here, at Hot Topic, where they’re selling it for $12.

Wild Goose Pocket Watch Necklace in Brushed Brass

Finally, this necklace that may remind you of your grandpa. It looks pretty vintage and can probably be used in a girly outfit, but because it has a goose on it, I labeled as un-girly. Stereotypical, I know. Anyway, get this gorgeous thing here, at Lulu*s, for $19, where I just make it under the $20 mark. Yay!

thrifty thursday. cute flats. June 11, 2009

Today for your thrifty pleasure, I have five nice pairs of flats, which are all under $20. I love flats. For one, they are very comfortable (well, only if you actually buy comfortable ones…) and can look both casual and dressy. Ah, the wonders of the modern shoe! Anyway, here they are, ascending price order:

Max Rave - Women's Bow Flats

max rave - women's bow flats.

First off are these super cute (and super cheap) bow-featuring, heart-printed (on the inside, at least) lovelies. Which you can find these pink ones here, at Walmart, for $13. They come in four different colors, though: the already-mentioned pink (sizes 6 and 7 to 9.5), blue (sizes 7, 8, and 9), gold (sizes 6 and 8), and black (sizes 6 and 7 to 9). Why, yes (I do love parentheses).

These ones look so damn comfortable! Can’t you imagine slipping them on and feeling better about the day ahead because at least your shoes won’t hurt you? Or is that too depressing? Regardless, these shoes would probably make someone ridiculously happy. They come in sizes 5 to 10 and 11, and you can get them here, at Target. That happiness will cost you $17.99, though.

SILVER

mary jane ballet flat.

I really like that strap across the middle of these shoes. It reminds me of the kinds of shoes that dolls wear, which I find adorable. Hopefully, you do, too. Find them here, at Wet Seal, for $18.50. They come in this silver and a nice black, and the sizes available include 6 to 9 and 10.

jenny sequin ballet flats.

Okay, I understand that many people may not like the dazzling shoes that lay here before them, but hear me out: um, yeah, I don’t really have an excuse. Never mind, then. Get them here, at Target if they don’t scare you. For $18.80, you can choose from sizes 6 to 10 (with no half sizes in between) in this great gold color.

patent cut out flats.

Lastly, I have these interesting and dressy flats from Charlotte Russe. They remind me of summer and garden parties. Want some of that in your life? Buy them here for $18.99, in colors white, black, and yellow. They come in sizes 6 to 10 (once again, with no half sizes in between). Go forth and prosper in shoes.

betsey johnson pearl drop earrings. bows and hearts. June 10, 2009

Okay, so I have a love/hate relationship relationship with Betsey Johnson. I tend to enjoy most of her overly girly designs that involve lace, bows, and ruffles, but sometimes… Well, she sometimes goes overboard. Which does no good for anybody, if you ask me. Anyway, these earrings are a perfect example of what a like: something simple that involves bows and hearts. They should be worn with something equally simple, such as a cute solid dress or yellow.

Betsey Johnson Pearl Drop Earrings

super adorable.

You can find these adorable earrings here, at Nordstrom. They cost $35 and are only available in white, as of this very moment, but maybe if you look back later, the yellow will appear again, which is my personal favorite. Good luck hunting!

sunday shopping spree. chandelier earrings. May 3, 2009

Okay, folks. Today is the day that I present more than one awesome fashionable thing to all you readers out there. I found six different pairs of chandelier earrings on six different sites for your viewing (and possibly, buying) pleasure. I think that chandelier earrings are really classic-looking and can brighten up any outfit. Without further ado, here they are, in ascending price order:

SILVER

filigree chandelier earring.

This pair is from Wet Seal, and you can buy them here for $6. They only come in silver but are a nice addition to any jewelry box.

evelyn chandelier earrings.

These gorgeous earrings are from Forever21, and you can buy them here for $8.80 and in two different colors: this black and a weird-looking yellow that might appeal to the bright and cheery populace of the world. Definitely not me.

Our next pairs hail from Urban Outfitters, and you can find them here. Since the style you receive depends on the color that you choose, I decided to show you both of the colors. The left one is silver and the right one is burnished gold. They are both $9.99 and on sale from $24. An item that is more than 50% off! I patted myself on the back for that one. No worries.

Mardi Gras Earrings

The fantastic earrings above are from Modcloth, here, and they only come in gold. Look at that magnificent craftmanship! Sadly, you have to pay extra for shit that good, and the price for them is $11.99.

ancient tree earrings.

I’ve never shopped at Anthropologie before. Namely because of their pricey nature. So it’s no surprise that these earrings I found there are $28. They are very pretty, though, and you can buy them here in gold or silver.

earrings

fringe chain and charm earrings.

I really like this last pair, too, but because I found them at Express, they are also very pricey. Coming in at $29.50, you can buy them here. Express is also having a sale right now: buy one and get one 50% off. Good luck finding something else!
