1 Day 2 Outfits and Boo

Yesterday was my day off! And days off are amazing, I am sure you all know that! Plus I was on a mission – to buy Boo the cute little dog for Ingrid – the girl I baby sit! If you don’t know who Boo is – here is a picture!

I was able to order both the plush toy and the book about Boo from our Uptown Urban Outfitters, and have them ship it to my house for free ๐Ÿ™‚ Oh the beauty of ordering from the store instead of online (that would’ve cost me $10!)

Anyways, once Boo makes it to my house, I’ll make sure to take some pictures of him for you before I pass him on to the cutest little girl in the area!

Now, I don’t want to be vain, or God forbid pull a Samantha Brick on you, but I went through 2 outfits yesterday. Here is the first one:

I am rocking my thrifted COACH cross body and BCBG Max Azria Jacket, my dress came from a sale at Macy’s, and the boots were a gift from my hubby, before we were even married. And then you know, the watch is the usual – Marc Jacobs, yes, I am obsessed ๐Ÿ˜‰

After I placed my order at UO, I went to check out the Ragstock, and ran into my friend Tom, whom I haven’t seen for about 5 years! Here is some interesting info for you – there are 2 Ragstocks in uptown, both are in the same building, but I was so excited about everything I bought there, I had to immediately go home and change!

Hence, Outfit of the day #2:

As you can tell I am recovering pretty well after my surgery ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you all for warm wishes and loving messages! I appreciate all of them so so much!

Hope you had a good day yesterday!

Maxi skirt transformation!

I have been looking for a perfect maxi skirt since the beginning of the summer! Needless to say they are in style right now, but I wanted it for a different reason too. You know how you can hike it up and wear as a dress? That is exactly what I was going to do! I finally found the skirt that I liked, and I knew it’s color would go well with pieces that I’ve already had in my closet, including the accessories. Here is the skirt:

And the close up on the pattern:

The maxi skirt as a skirt:

With some accessories:

And a belt

Now the same skirt as a dress:

I added this BCBG jacket for a more work-appropriate look!

This skirt/dress also looks great with this turquoise necklace

Tomorrow I will show you another necklace that looks great with this dress. It is going to be a “refurbished” necklace, that belonged to my Grandma. But I am not going to give it away just yet!

Happy Saturday everyone! What are you going to treat yourself to this weekend?

Thrifted Tunic in Today’s Outfit

I went on a thrifting shopping spree last week, the only reason why I did that – a 90% off sale that I couldn’t resist! And I decided that this week I am going to add an Outfit of the Day type of post, in which I am going to show you, how I incorporated my thrifted purchases into my daily outfits!

So here is my $1 tunic. I am wearing a hand made vintage top underneath ( learn more about it hereย http://beingzhenya.wordpress.com/2011/03/26/diy-tank-topcamisole-made-out-of-a-vintage-nightgown/) , a pair of brown leggings from who knows where :), my Kimchi Blue oxfords from Urban Outfitters, a thrifted BCBG jacket from Housing Works on Columbus Ave, and a purse, also from Urban Outfitters (Kimchi Blue).
