Let me start by saying that I'm actually wearing something from J.Crew.
Yep, if ya know me this comes as quite a shocker.
Don't get me wrong. I love this store, their selection and their styles. I just don't love their prices. In fact, it kinda makes me dizzy thinking about buying a skirt for $100. I typically don't spend more than $40 on any single piece of clothing besides shoes, bags and jackets. It's how I am programmed. I would rather pick up four things from H&M, Target, Old Navy and of course Forever 21 than just one higher priced item at another retailer.
You guys know I shop. More than I should. And because of my extracurricular activities, I'd like to believe I have some sorta clue about "what's out there". And, I just don't see that huge of a difference in quality between the more expensive pieces versus more affordable ones. Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe I'm not. Maybe I'm just cheap.
Anyway, ramble over. My point being, I randomly hit up J.Crew and at the perfect time. This skirt was on clearance with an additional 30% off last week. I thought it was a great transitional piece that could be worn all year. It was a little more than my typical $19.80 skirt from Forever 21, but I couldn't pass it up. I am trying to be smarter about my purchases lately. I am leaning toward more things that I can remix and wear different ways. So, viola, this little number came home with me.
Annnnnnd, for your viewing pleasure, I conjured up a way to take a regular, very THICK scarf and turn it into an infinity one. Normally, I can tie the ends together to a scarf made of lighter material and be just fine. Not so much with a heavier one. I tried tying the ends of this red one together and it left me with a big bulky mess in the back.
So, I came up with this little cheap trick.
Grab a hair tie.
Wrap it around the ends of the scarf.
An infinity scarf was born without the junk in the trunk.
I sure do love me some simple, easy peasy tricks of the trade. Don't you?
