Clearance alert: Walmart

Metro 7 balloon sleeved top $10, Walmart

I'm almost better. I can walk without being in agonizing pain, but my back still hurts a little. I should be fine by tomorrow. Anyway.....

I saw this top over at Too Cute, and I love it. I was at Walmart Saturday and I spotted this top marked down even lower for $7.
I should've tried it on, but Mr. Cheap Chica was ready to go. I hate when people rush you. What do y'all think of this top? What would you wear with it? Holla!


Updates later this week

Hey everyone, I'm stuck in bed due to my bad back, so I won't be updating until later this week. Until then, check out my list of favorite blogs to the right to keep you busy. I see you in a few.


Today's video: Spring love

Man, I used to love this song back when I was about 8 or 9 years old. When I heard it the radio today, it occurred to me that I've never in my life seen the video. Well, here it is. Peep the hairstyles and the clothes. Those were the days. Enjoy.


Cheap Chica Swap

Out of boredom, I decided to start a Yahoo Group called Cheap Chica Swap. It's where you could post unwanted stuff (clothing, shoes, and accessories) up for swap or sale. The homepage pretty much explains all the rules of swap/sale. I put a T-shirt up there to swap just to test it out, so if you would like to post a swap or sell something, click on the button to your right to join the group.

Bargain shoe of the week 1-28-07

They also have these in green and red. I want a green pair. I think I'll get a green pair.


Do you like? Blue patent ballet flats

American Eagle "Fiona" flat $12.99 (reg. $14.99), Payless

I should've bought these shoes a while ago. Every time I stop into Payless, I get the sudden urge to buy them, but then the urge dies down. Then I go home, and I can't stop thinking about them. I think the next time I go into Payless, I'm going to buy them. I love them. The color is so beautiful. Perfect for this spring. Do you like?

Weekend finds: The search for a hot pink belt

Earlier this week, I purchased these shoes from Payless. I love hot pink. Always have, always will. The outfit that I had in mind for this shoe is a button-down tunic top and jeans. Sounds pretty boring, right? But, with bright colors, I try to keep it simple. I don't want to be too flashy. I decided to look for a belt to compliment the shoes and jazz up the outfit. I went to 579 yesterday. They had the perfect belt that looks similar to this one (in hot pink, of course), just not in my size. No biggie. I waited until today to continue my search. I went to another 579 to find the belt. Still no luck. Then, I went into Charlotte Russe. They had quite a few choices, some in different shades. I chose this one that was closest to the shoe:

belt $8.99, Charlotte Russe

Now, the pic makes the belt and the shoes look way off, but in real life, the belt is actually a wee bit off from the shoe. No prob. Since the belt is on top and the shoes are on the bottom, you really can't tell. I tried them on with the top and the jeans and this is the result:

What do you guys think? I want honest opinions. Holla!
