Ahhhhhhh it’s Tang!!!!! (the person not the juice <3)
My festive dorm room!
I was browsing about Modcloth a few weeks ago and discovered this gorgeous dress:
Plum Major Dress from Modcloth.com
And…I decided I wanted one like it, so I began devising a pattern! This is how it turned out:
A bit different than the original, but certainly just as awesome (if not more?)
I had difficulty finding the right color for the dress. Even this color doesn’t completely match but you wouldn’t believe how few plums and burgundies I could find online within my price range!
I wore it for Thanksgiving (twice! - I attended two Thanksgiving celebrations).
Yes, I did go shopping today…however NOT early in the morning and NOT for gifts - for myself!
But I got a lot of nice stuff on sale.
I went to a thrift shop first and picked up some business-y looking clothes for School of Business events - $7 for a pencil skirt and button-up shirt! Yeah!
Then I went to Victoria’s Secret to claim free panties since I had one of those reward cards that they send you…
Then I went to Aerosoles and bought a great pair of boots half off!
And of course after that I came home and ordered from Frederick’s of Hollywood (they’re having a big sale) and got two pairs of lace panties at 25% off with free shipping.
I feel so productive!
