pocket tees + patent pumps

so, you all know by now how much this chick loves a bargain.  literally, i've gotten to the point where i won't buy without a coupon or a sale.  some would call me cheap, i like to think of myself as a frugal mcdugal!!  my reasoning being, i have 2 small children at home and i would like to be able to provide them with a comfortable life, so i just cant justify spending hundreds of dollars on 1 item.  if im spending $100, i better be going home with a giant shopper full of goodies and enough money left over to hit up starbucks for a venti soy latte.  now, let me contradict myself for a moment, because i will partake in the occasional splurge of a nice handbag or a pair of designer jeans, but even then, im not above waiting it out for a holiday weekend promo or massive markdown!! 
todays entire look is comprised of my latest deals and steals, so let me break it down for you:
starting with my cheapest accessory, sunnies!!  i spotted these puppies online via Forever21 and the houndstooth was too posh to pass up, and whats even better is the tortoise sides! if you've never shopped the site, let me tell you, they have the cutest sunglass selection, always funky and always cheap! you can score this funky style for $3!!  (link below)
on to my next purchase, this pocket tee via Victoria's Secret Pink Collection
you know i can pass on a leopard print and this tee is the perfect layering piece.  i just love the mix of patterns and at $16 (2 for $32) you cant go wrong, its basically a classic with a twist.
my necklace was yet another steal via Marshalls
i tend to forget about the jewelry counter, i usually head straight for the shoes and handbags then hit up the boutique brand selection on my way out, but when i do remember, i am always pleasantly surprised to find a collection that's trendy and fresh!  his knotted gold chain set me back a mere $20.
individually, i love each and every one of these pieces, but the skirt is truly one of my fave recent purchases.  leather skirts are fairly easy to come by, but this mini has the coolest pleated ruffle and uneven hemline, i found it too intriguing to pass up.  for only $60 this faux leather is like butter and sure to be a staple from season to season.
lastly, can we talk about the patent pumps??  this isn't their first appearance on the blog, (check out how i styled them here) and it will most definitely not be their last!  at only $30, they are a dead ringer to the oh so glamorous louboutin (sans red sole) and my latest go to for every look. something about that pop of red that takes even the most mundane outfit to a chicer level.
happy shopping lovies!!
