You Are an "It Girl"

You're outgoing, friendly, and charismatic.

You are aware of your image, and you are constantly improving yourself.

You're definitely the type of girl people love to be around!

Lunch break shopping: K-Mart

Today, I found myself shopping on my lunch break at K-Mart. I didn't have anything particular in mind to buy, just the fact that I haven't been there in ages. I think I'll stick to shopping at Tar-zhay and Walmart for bargain fashion. K-Mart's clothes just doesn't tickle my fancy. Usually I would go there for the cute shoe selection, but even their shoe department suck. Maybe it's just my local K-Mart. Who knows. I ended up buying a belt similar to this one for $5.00.


Clearance alert: Old Navy little black dress

Strapless dress $20.00, Old Navy

Cute little strapless number. I would jazz this up a bit with cute accessories. Just in time for those holiday parties.


Last year's trend: Sequined stretch belt

Just like those chinese mesh slippers from a couple of years ago, I had just about every color in this belt. I remember when I saw Madonna in her "Hung Up" video wearing one, I just had to have one. They were going for about $20 or more when the trend first popped up. I got mine off Ebay for about $6. Now, they're like $2 at the fleamarket. I still see girls wearing them from time to time, but, in my opinion, this trend got ran into the ground way before last year ended- at least in my town it did. If I were to still wear one, I would wear a black or silver one, not those outrageous pastel colors.


Toss or keep?

I'm thinking about getting a new pair of boots, and as I was cleaning out my closet, I forgot that I had this pair. I bought them from Wet Seal about five years ago and I've only worn them once. I kinda want to keep them so I won't have to buy a new pair of black boots, but for some reason, they kinda seem outdated to me. What do you guys think? Should I go ahead and buy a new pair of boots and get rid of these, or are they still cute to wear? Holla!

Weekends finds: Pamlyn Variety and post Black Friday shopping at Target

It's been a while since I've visited my friends Pam and Lynette over at Pamlyn Variety. Then again, it's been a while since I've visited the flea market, period. Since I've discovered their booth at the fleamarket earlier this year, I've been a regular customer ever since. In my opinion, they have the coolest jewelry. I was informed yesterday that they've finally opened their store. They've been open for over a month now, and I need to make a trip over there. Here's what I bought yesterday:

Since they've opened the store and booth rentals at the fleamarket have went up, they jacked the prices up, but not by much. Each necklace is $7.99 now, but since I'm their #1 customer, I got the hook up. $7.99 is still a good price. Too bad they don't do the 2 for $9.99 anymore. Damn.

For you readers here in Fort Myers and readers who'll probably visit Ft. Myers someday, here's the address to the new store if you want to check them out:

6631 Orion Dr. Unit 111
Fort Myers, FL 33912
(239) 344-0085
On Friday, Mr. Cheap Chica and I decided to go Target to pick
up a few things. When we got there, the store was damn near empty (we went around 6:30 pm). I was so glad I got to shop in peace. I guess all of the Black Friday shoppers have gotten their stuff and left. I browsed through the clearance racks, but nothing good was on them. Then, I remembered a top that I saw on the website that I wanted to get:
Xhiliration tie back top $12.99. I used the pic from the website because my camera is a piece of crap. They have this top in more colors. I wanted a red one, but they didn't have my size.

Video clip of the day: Black Friday shopping

Here's a clip I found on MSNBC about today's Black Friday shopping. As you know, this is one day that I avoid shopping because some of the people turn into maniacs and I hate extremely large crowds. For those of you that went shopping today, please share your experiences. Were there any really awesome sales? Was it really worth waking up at the crack of dawn to catch those "early bird specials"? Holla!

This is a damn shame

HARTFORD, Conn. - Two armed thugs tried to rob a line of people waiting for the new Playstation 3 game system to go on sale early Friday and shot a man who refused to give up his money, authorities said.In other states, customers pushed and shoved their way to the shelves to get at the limited supply, and in Kentucky, four people were grazed by BBs fired from a passing vehicle as they waited for a Best Buy store to open.The two gunman in the northeast Connecticut town of Putnam confronted 15 to 20 people standing outside a Wal-Mart store shortly after 3 a.m. and demanded money, said State Police Lt. J. Paul Vance.'One of the patrons resisted. That patron was shot,' Vance said.He said the two gunmen fled after shooting Michael Penkala, 21, of Webster, Mass., in the chest and shoulder. Penkala was in stable condition at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center in Worcester, Mass., with injuries not believed to be life threatening, Vance said.Vance said police were searching for the suspects, both believed to be in their teens. He said one was wearing a ski mask and brandishing a handgun, and the other had what appeared to be a shotgun.Aside from the police tape, things had returned to normal by midmorning at the Wal-Mart store in rural Putnam, a town of about 9,000 residents near the Massachusetts and Rhode Island borders.Short supplies of the PS3 and strong demand led to lines of buyers, some waiting for days, outside stores across the country.In Palmdale, Calif., authorities shut down a Super Wal-Mart after some shoppers got rowdy late Wednesday. In West Bend, Wis., a 19-year-old man was injured when he ran into a pole racing with 50 others for one of 10 spots outside a Wal-Mart.In Lexington, Ky., someone fired BB pellets from a passing vehicle at people waiting outside a Best Buy store, according to WKYT, whose own reporter said she was among four people grazed while she interviewed buyers in line.A Best Buy in Boston, aware it had only 140 of the consoles, got smart about the big sale - its employees gave out tickets to the first 140 people in line so everyone could go home until the store opened.


Is this Playstation 3 really that serious? People are going nucking futs over a stupid video game console. What is the world coming to?

Weekends finds: What can $20 do for you?

After Mr. Cheap Chica and I were done searching for another car to buy, we popped into the mall to check out the Veteren's Day sales going on. I wasn't planning on buying anything because I had only $20 on me, but I saw a few things that I liked- for super cheap, of course!

Drawstring tank $11.99 (clearance), Old Navy. They were having an additional 50% off clearance prices, so I got it for $6. I got this pic off the website, but for some reason, I don't think it could be purchased online anymore.

top $2, store formerly known as Rave, Lola. They were having an additional 75% off their clearance prices. I also purchased a black kimono top for $2 as well, but due to my douche-bag camera, the pic didn't come out well.

Belt $2.50; earrings $1; necklace $2; all from Wet Seal. They were having an additional 50% off their clearance accessories.

Grand total for everything- $15.50. Man, I love clearance sales.

Today's poll: Are you shopping on Black Friday this year?

I know for a fact that I'm not going anywhere near a shopping facility on Black Friday- the day after Thanksgiving. I'm pretty much done with all of my Christmas shopping. I've been shopping all of this year. As much as I love shopping and a great deal, I hate Black Friday. Just like the day after Christmas, some people turn into the biggest assholes. If there is something that they want, they will literally knock you over to get it. I remember a couple of years ago, I heard a woman got trampled on at Walmart over a damn DVD player that was on sale. A DVD player! What a shame. No way, Jose, I do not care for Black Friday. Enough of my ranting, take the poll below. Share your experiences with Black Friday. Holla!
