I know the last two posts have been centered around Thanksgiving and that's because it's pretty awesome! Think about what other holiday allows you to eat a lot, have two paid vacation days, and is followed by the best sales of the year. Seriously guys, Thanksgiving has it all - family, love, appreciation, food, and bargain shopping!!! I don't know if Kendi knew what she was doing by starting the 30 for 30 in November, but I definitely feel like I'm missing out on some Black Friday deals. Black Friday isn't Black Friday with no shopping. I love the satisfaction of getting something I love for a "steal" price!

For example, I saw this AWESOME Christmas sweater in Anthro, and the only reason I didn't get it was because the store was closing when I saw it. It's killing me...well, not KILLING ME, but it is making me envious of other people who are shopping. How am I supposed to not shop with all these sales? I'm a bargain shopper, I don't pay more than $50 for ANYTHING, and I get things that were originally priced in the hundreds....

I'm rambling, but I'm also writing this to say don't judge me or hate me if I slip up and buy something because I love it, and I know I can only get it for a great price today. I'm not saying it's definite, but I am saying it's possible...


  1. I won't judge, promise. I will say though that you are rocking this challenge with the items you have. This outfit is so cool and you look absolutely gorgeous!

  2. I like this look, it's very preppy with a twist just because the skirts is so bright. I really like that mustard yellow skirt...hmmmm...on the search for wishlist!! :)

  3. i'm amazed at how different all of your 30 for 30 looks are--i practically can't tell that you're working with a limited wardrobe.
    and i love the colors and textures here--lovely!

  4. Your hair looks lovely! Did you do a two strand twist? If so, how long did it take you? (They look so tiny!)

  5. @ Anon - Thank you!!! These are actually mini-braids, and they took me 10-12 hours. I did them over a 2-day period, working well into the night and finished them the following morning. I plan to keep them for a month! I hope to get around to posting a video about them soon...
