old outfits

Here's a random collection of outfit pictures from the past few years.

Some of these are from my sophomore year of high school! I haven't really changed at all.

recent purchases

I went to the mall over the weekend and couldn't help but buy some things:

Yellow floral one shoulder top, H&M, $12.95

It's a little sheer but I think/hope I can pull it off with a white strapless bra. I can't wait to wear this with my forest green pencil skirt from AA.

Black and white cropped sweater, H&M, $12.95

I keep going back and forth on whether or not I like cropped things on me. I have a really long torso so I think it's semi-awkward, but this sweater was sooo perfect and cozy. If worse comes to worse I'll just pull it off with high waisted stuff.

Black 3/4 length sweater with button collar, F21, $4.99

I LOVE this. LOVE. It fits me perfectly, has beautiful detail and is simple at the same time. I'll definitely be wearing this throughout winter (aka the whole school year at Syracuse) with some jeans or skirts. I actually have a mental video of myself waking up for class and just throwing this on.

However, the BEST find ever:

Crown Vintage Royal Wedges in Brown, DSW, $35

I have been trying to find these shoes in store since the moment they sold out online. I went to DSWs in Syracuse, NY, Cherry Hill, NJ, Haddon, NJ, and the one in the Holyoke mall in Mass like eight times looking for them. So, I casually walked into the sale section this weekend and...


EEEEEEEEEEE! And I had two giftcards so they were only $7. They're also really comfortable (at least judging from walking around the store in them). I had to get a 7.5 although I'm normally an 8 so I'm guessing they run big; a 7 may have been a better fit but this was the smallest one I could find. Overall, I had some great purchases today but it's about time to hide my wallet from myself.

I went to the mall yesterday and got some great stuff, I'll show the rest of it off soon but for right now here's an outfit with a $5.95 tube top from H&M.



I just got a pedicure a few days ago and took a leap of faith by getting something other than pink (in case you didn't know I"m lame as fuck. Also once I had a bad incident where I got yellow and it looked like toe fungus, true story). I love bright colors but I feel like sometimes they're so hard to pull off when your skin is almost transparent like mine.



ridiculously large torso shot? yep.


Tube top: H&M, $6
Necklace: F21, $10
Skirt: H&M, $20
Belt: Salvation Army, $1
Sandals: Broken but from F21, $20

Outfit total: $57

the beginning

Yay, my first post! I guess I should introduce myself, my name is Mary and I'm a student at Syracuse University with a fashion addiction who's cheap as fuck. I've always wanted to have a blog to show off my affordable outfits but I have had a hard time taking pictures in the past. Cue my new lens that I got as a birthday present, the Canon 17-135mm, which has a great wide angle shot. So, here's what I wore yesterday to go to a family friend's party on the lake. My dad told me I was overdressed but that's pretty standard for me so I didn't really give a fuck. I just thrifted this denim shirt a week ago for $2 and it's not the kind of thing I'd usually like but for some reason I love it.



Hair bow: made by my mom, $0
Floral dress: F21, $22
Denim Shirt: Salvation Army, $2
Oxfords: Crown Vintage Royal at DSW, gift from my mom, $40

Total outfit price: $64
