As I mentioned in this post; when I was in SC last week I basically got spoiled. But before my routine resumes and the only shopping I ever do becomes grocery store shopping again; the girly girl in me couldn’t resist sharing my haul with you =)
First, my mom took me to out to the Hilton Head Island Tanger Outlets – the only two big outlets in the area (which are small compared to the stuff I’ve got up here). The outlets are split into two parts with each being a collection of different shops and restaurants; of course we hit both of them.
When we set out I was actually looking for a simple black blazer; one of the staples in my wardrobe that I really miss having. Alas, I didn’t find the one and so didn’t end up getting a black blazer this time =/ In fact, I tried on a lot of things but being practical and keeping a list of what I already have so that I don’t buy the same thing twice, I ended up getting something new from BCBGMAXAZRIA:
BCBGMAXAZRIA Dress (I forget what it’s called) and “Montana” Skirt in Deep Violet.
I took this pic with my phone so it’s not the best quality but all you really need to know is both fit perfectly (00 and XS, of course). Yay! Being as petite as I am, finding things that fit off the rack is extremely rare so I grabbed them. Also, these were a steal if you consider the retail prices of designer clothes – Success x2!
That day, I also stopped in the local Target and picked up some makeup products I hadn’t tried:
Almay Intense i-Color Combo with Intense i-Color Mascara for Brown Eyes
Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow in Fierce & Tangy
Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear Nail Color in 330 Grey Area
I like all of these…I LOVE the Color Tattoo eyeshadow. I have reviews on Beautylish if you’re interested. Buying makeup makes me happy because you don’t have to try it on.
I also brought these two things home with me from Banana Republic:
Both are also perfect =D
I wanted to review these two on Fit Review but I have no idea what either of these are called; I found them on the clearance rack so I don’t even know if they’re discontinued or not. BR’s sizing has been hit and miss for me so I was pleasantly surprised when I found that they were a perfect fit.
As you can see, my hauls are not super extensive. I would say that I’m a practical woman – I love clothes but I hate clutter, duplicates, and buying things in a style that I’m hard ever going to wear. I also have a rule for shopping since when I was younger I thought I had too much stuff: When something new comes home, something old leaves. So when I brought in four new pieces, four that I don’t really wear anymore got donated.
