Note that there is a sock ball belonging to Mike on the lower right of the last picture. He is so silly leaving sock balls around like that. The little grey dress was a recent find. AE is having a huge clearance and I picked this up through that. I got the dress in a 00 which fits a little small but then I think that any bigger and the bust would not look as good. The dress actually has boning on both sides of the torso as I suppose it is like a corset. The skirt is very pretty eyelet, but I wish it was a little longer. Or perhaps it is just too small on me? Wow, I still can't believe how grumpy I look.
Ok, so today I sort of struck gold. I managed to get enough sleep while on call that I didn't need to nap post call at all! After I left the hospital, I went to the pool and waddled around a little. Then I returned home and got ready to set out on an adventure. I got some lunch then wandered around a bit and stumbled into a little boutique that apparently opened up 9 weeks ago. The sales associate was super nice and showed me all these things on sale that happened to be Free People and I shamelessly got them all. The discounts in-store were significantly better than on their website.

Flares are coming back! I snatched these AE Vintage Flare jeans while they were on super sale last week for less than $20. I got them in 0 Short because I want to be able to wear them with flats. They are less stretchy than the average jeans which I prefer. I currently own 2 pairs of jeans without ANY stretch in them and I treasure them like they are a dying breed. The distressing detail is nice. I also like the pockets. Currently I have an excess of skinny, straight leg, and boot cut jeans. When I moved out of my parents' house I left behind a pair of Angels flares since the style was waning at that time. Now I want them back! Note: tell mom to bring them next time she visits.
The eyelet blouse was also a surprising fit. I have a really narrow chest (29" or 30" or something) and struggle to find tops that are both flattering and pretty. This top is an XS and so flowy and romantic. I read the reviews on the website and agree that it flatters slender figures better. I also agree that the bottom of the blouse runs tight so it has to sit higher on the hips. However, all the beautiful details sealed the deal for me. I love the buttons on the side. aah LOVE!
This lace back cardigan was the first piece that the sales girl wanted me to try on. At first I was like meh. But then it totally grew on me. I don't own anything like it! It looks fabulous with jeans. The lace is very delicate and feminine. Mike left another sock ball at the shoe area haha....
