Making a list and checking it twice...

Gonna find out if it's a good price. Oh Mandy's got some thrifting to do! I know I have a ton of clothes already- all of which are buried deep in storage from our big move. I believe that by the time we finish building our house, and unpack- things will definately not fit me and gasp! may even be out of style. I feel that style challenges such as those posted on Everybody,Everywear certainly get my hamster wheels a-turnin and make me excited about getting dressed in the morning. Now I'm not so afraid to be so matchy-matchy with my clothes and shoes, thanks to...  Kileen and her color brigade and Sally @ . It's so refreshing to see their use of vibrant colors. Sally has some great tips and ideas for incorporating color into your outfit with shoes.

I got these babies for $5 clearance at Target about 3 yrs ago. They have been worn maybe twice- simply because I didn't know what to wear them with for the longest time. I intend to show them some love.

I'm loving this new statement necklace from Cookie Lee's Spring Collection. What do you think?


  1. I need to make a list. Those yellow shows are so cute too!

  2. These shoes are such a great neutral... You'll have no problem pairing them with any number of things. Check out Jill at She has some great yellow shoes and rock them regularly.

  3. How excited was I to scroll down and see my belt??? THank you for including me! {to answer your question I found the belt at America's Thrift... probably my favorite thrifty find EVER}

    I love that floral LC dress. Hopefully It'll still be there when I finish the 30X30!!
