The awesome thing about the VBS I'm getting my required-for-graduating-community-service-hours done at is that it is right near the one mall in my area that has all the stores I like. Now, I spent roughly half my money for the month at the thrift stores (I got a lot more from them than I did from the mall, certainly), but that didn't mean I didn't have quite a bit left. My deal with malls is that the only things I will ever buy full price are either already very cheap or shoes. It's a matter of stretching my money, since even right now, I'm just trying to pull out a wardrobe that will work for me. Which basically means I tend to go for fairly basic items that I can use in a variety of ways.
But let's examine what I got, hmm?
The booties and this eyeliner pencil hail from Rue21, which not so long ago moved into that particular mall. I'd never had the opportunity to get in there before, so I took the time - primarily because they were having a sale, admittedly - and fell in love. EACH PAIR OF BOOTieS WAS FIVE DOLLARS OKAY. My shoe diet isn't even partially on anymore, is it? Didn't think so. The eyeliner is also rather less scary than the other three I own but can't stand to use. Meaning I can get it onto my top lash line but can't go near my bottom one. Best out of two, I guess! xD
I bought both of these from Earthbound Trading Co. The feathers hit me right after a day spent working around girls who were under thirteen and had them in their hair. I've seen them everywhere for so long. Can't afford the actual things, but definitely can afford these clip-ins. And I can remove them when I want to! ;D The pin is for either my backpack, which I am so sticking full of things like this next year, or some sort of tote bag, since I need/want one a ton. If I get the pins, maybe I'll get the motivation to get one, y'know?
I'm not sure what I'll do first next payday; thrifting or the mall. We'll just see when we get there.
Found anything awesome or discovered any ~new~ places at your mall lately?
