polk-a-dot ruffled top

outfit #1- "budget chic"
can you believe that this outfit was under $100 INCLUDING shoes and bag
skirt FOREVER 21 $7
shoes DEENA& OZZY (UO) $50
purse ALDO $25
cross n/l FOREVER 21 $7
sunglasses E-BAY $7
TOTAL cost = $100
(okay right on the dot, not really under 100... exactly 100) not bad right ?

outfit #2- "laid back with jeans"
jeans BDG (UO)
very basic outfit, you can never go wrong with skinny jeans and clunky wedges. UPDATE:
More outfit posts coming soon. This weekend I took another road trip up north with the family.  I did a little vintage shopping in Santa Barbara, and picked up a couple of really good finds,  will share photos later  ;)Just started school, so I will be super swamped, but don't worry I will still be posting  :)

i really like all your videos, and i really like how you scored this polka top for 4 bones
so cool
im excited what you got!! i bet its really good.

Kara said...

Great combo! I can't believe you scored that polka dot top for 4 dollars! It is such a great fit and the style is on trend, I honestly would have thought it was brand new!
Good luck in school! Ugh, you've got me dreading going back now haha. Can't believe you guys start so early!! :)

Oh, and I just watched your shopping vlog last night! great finds- keep 'em coming!! ;)

And love the Aldo bag!

Sha Smith said...

I adore your Aldo bag and you look great in that polka dot top.

MeganRose. said...

wow good job on the $100 outfit! esp that it includes the shoes and bag! i regret passing those d&o shoes up! i want your shoe collection!!!

Michelle Elaine said...

i like it styled in the 2nd outfit more. the first is cute, but i know i'd be more likely to wear it the way you did in the other one!


Ronisha said...

love it!!

Catita said...

well you definitely know how to shop bargain! cool pieces ;) i love the skirt in particular, great color!
Oh and those Chloe boots your have on your wish list, I love them!!!

sharonlei said...

Ari... I want those Deena+Ozzy shoes badly!! Drooooooooooool.

I think both looks are great, but I'm leaning more towards the second styling. The acid wash jeans look amazing on you!!!

xx Love & Aloha

Alexandra said...

Oh no, well I'm just ending school so we're both swamped! Both super cute outfits, I love the top.

Love Alexandra

LyddieGal said...

Tough choice, but I think I love the first look more, for the pattern mixing and those wonderful cage sandals.

but they are both awesome!

Chic on the Cheap
