My recent purchase: Ross, H&M, and others

I hope everyone had a good Saturday! :D

I spent the day doing some chores around the house and doing my homework. Is it just me or does homework never end? I still have a lot of things to do, and I have to start studying for my Sociology midterm. Any studying tips?

How was your Saturday?

Anyway, I just want to do another recent purchase post... I bought these over a month ago. I have new purchases to share with everyone, so I'm really happy to finally get the chance to share these items with you. :)

We love going to Ross because they have tons of clothes, shoes, bags, accessories, home items - everything! - both brand name and not, all for low prices! :D

The day we went, they just got a new shipment of these beautiful, bright yellow ballet flats. Being that yellow is my favorite color, of course I got a pair!


Aaaaahhhh, isn't the color just gorgeous?!

Look at the detail:


Sooo cute! It is so me. :)

These are originally $40 - I got them for $12.99.

I also got a new pair of jeans.


Since I am only 5'2'', I find it difficult to find jeans that are the right length. I usually get my jeans from Forever21, that's why I was so happy to find this because it's a perfect fit.

I also like how it doesn't have a zipper. I can just wear it and do the button, and that's it! I hate having to deal with stubborn zippers - especially when I just painted my nails.


Originally priced $36, I got it for only $15.99.

I know I've told you guys about my headband obsession about a thousand times, and it struck again! I got headbands at Ross too. ;)


Originally $10 - got it for $2.99!


Three headbands for $2.99 - there was no way I was leaving the store without these. ;)

We also checked out H&M - I love H&M, but sometimes I think their clothes are a bit too expensive... that's why I am always happy to find bargains at H&M.

When we went though, I didn't buy any clothes, but I did buy this:


These sunglasses are originally $6.95 - but they were on sale for a dollar. Yes, a dollar! :D

I also got these two sunglasses at the 99 cents store for 99 cents each!


Aaaah, shopping really is amazing - especially when we find bargains! :D

Have you found some great bargains lately?


I am also having a $55 CSN gift card giveaway! Have you entered it? If you haven't, please click here. It ends on November 21st. Good luck!


  1. We have oh so much in common my dear! The yellow factor, the petite frame and the desire to zero in on bargains!! That's half the fun of looking great, is smiling in your new digs b/c you still have cash in the stylish bag!! I haven't been to Ross is a while. Marshall's and TJMaxx are a little closer. You've inspired me to head across town! XOXO

  2. Those flats are SOOO sweet. I can't wait to see how you style them =)

    I like TJMaxx better than Ross, but Ross is closer so I end up there more than the former. I always go to shoes first, then bags, then tights, then everything else.

  3. aizel camille-- :D

    Style Attic-- yes, i agree with everything you said! looking great and not spending too much is the best!

    Lisa-- TJMaxx is great too! i can't wait to share with you how i wear them too. :D

  4. Oh my gosh, Mimi! I've never been to Ross! My aunt was telling me how there are so many bargains there. I should definitely visit! I think there's one in West Hills! :)

  12. Those shoes are so cute!! I'm loving headbands too!

  13. Im a short gal too so jeans are always a hard thing to find, great score with those jeans!

  14. Cute stuff you got! I like the shade of the jeans you got and the different sunglasses. They're really cute! I don't typically wear sunglasses often because I'm wearing my glasses. o.O haha
