Remixing's on hold

So I absolutely love to mix and match the stuff I own, but lately instead of remixing I've been in this mode of getting use out of everything in my closet....since starting my new job I have yet to wear any top twice (Besides one black cardi that has been repeated) and I am loving the feeling of "newness" that comes with each outfit.  Which do you prefer....the power/challenge of the remix or the fierceness of wearing something "new"? 
Tuesday I decided to play it a little more nuetral than usual and to go with something comfy, bc I went to the ortho to get my retainer, which I despise lol.  Ahh well, it will work out....at least I'm done with braces!! :) 
So, here's what I wore:
Lime Green Cardi- $1.99 at Denton Thrift
Gray Top- $12 from Target
Black Limited Brand Pants- $3.99 at Goodwill
Heels- $4 at Payless
Earrings-6 for $5 at MIZ Accessories
Bracelet a set is 6 for $5 at MIZ Accessories
Outfit Total: About $23
Since I kept yesterday so simple....and even got a comment from a co-worker "Wow, your not quiet as colorful today"...I decided to add a big burst of color in the outfit today.  I've been holding on to this red pencil skirt for just the right outfit. :)  (BTW, I know I look way more tan in the second pic...I have become addicted to spray tanning and was finally able to get in another tan session last night.)

Here;s What I Wore:
Funky Top- $7 at Plato's Closet
Black Tank Top- $3.88 at Walmart
Red Pencil Skirt- $1 at Thrift City
Heels- $12 at Cato
Necklace- $1 at Dots
Bangle- 50cents at CCA Thrift
Outfit Total: $25.38

Cardi Love

So I had been lusting over this ahhmazingly detailed and fantastically cream colored cardi, since it first appeared in the Talbots outlet at only 25% it's $119 sticker price.  Definately wasn't going to pay that much, so I watched closely as it scooted down to 50%, 60%, 70% and finally 95% an even lower sale price, which is when I plucked it out of the store and ran......well, I paid of course, but then I ran just in case they decided making this amazing cardi a total bargain was a dumb decision. lol  Have u ever had an item you stalked until it hit the perfect price point?

Here's what I wore today:
Cream Colored Cardi- $6 at Talbots Outlet
Colorful Tank- $3 at Marshalls
Black Tank- Free hand-me-down from mom
Black Pencil Skirt- $8.88 at the $8 Fashion Outlet
Heels- $9 at Payless
Necklace- $14 at Talbots Outlet
Bangle- 50cents at CCA Thrift
Studs- Came in a set of a huge pack of studs 6packs for $5
Outfit Total: $ 42.21

I know you can't really tell in the pic, but down the from of the cardi there are little metal circles hanging off it and on the front the circles are cream and on the back they're gold.
Hope everyone has a great week!!  ~Kendra~

Red, White and Black

My boyfriend and I recently hit up Goodwill and he got me this super cute top.  I couldn't wait to wear it!!  I don't have a ton of red tops in my closet, so I'm excited to find different ways to wear this piece.

Here's What I'm Wearing:
Red Top-Gifted from BF (Goodwill)
White Tanktop- $5 at Walmart
Black Skirt- $8.88 at $8 Fashion Outlet
Black Belt- Free with a black dress from Bealls
Red Feather Earrings- 6 for $5 at MIZ Accessories
Bracelets- Random ones from MIZ Accessories (6 for $5)

Black, Brown and Floral All Over

Cato is one of those places where I ussually find really cute stuff for really cheap....I only shop on their clearance racks...and this outfit is no exception.  The top, skirt and shoes are all from different Cato shopping trips and I love the way they all go together.

Black Top-Mom's Hand me down from Cato
Floral Skirt- $4.99 from Cato
Heels-$3.99 at Cato
Necklace- $1.99 at Body Shop

I don't know if you can tell, but the branches on the skirt are black and brown and my neckalce also has some brown beads.  What do you think about mixing black and brown....some people are against it...I say...it's totally ok.  I mean, if u wear anything leopard print ur pretty much mixing black and brown.  Really, it's no biggie. :)  ~Kendra~
