Fun Cheap Items

One of the things that I have enjoyed about some of the maxi skirts sold at Anthropologie is that when I roll the waist band to shorten the length, the underside of the band looks like a decorative belt. This is the case with the Vanessa Virginia Petaled Paisley skirt that is marked down to $40 now.

While at Target yesterday, I snapped this picture of a cute Merona maxi skirt and Anthro looking necklace. I like the idea of bringing out the orange in this skirt and I might have to wish list this one. The skirt is only $20 and the necklace is $13. There is a part of me that loves a great cheap bargain and because of this, I have to watch out for the impulse buy.
This is why I have started making a list of desired items I have a crush on and need to stick with a monthly budget.

The hair clips and makeup were found on a Dollar Tree run. Since I wear ponytails a lot, I like to shop for cute floral clips. I love these Hawaiian themed Plumeria blossoms that come in a two pack. They seem to do one color with a black flower and I’m hoping there is a pink one yet to come out.

The makeup was fun for me because I love green mascara and there was a huge lot of green Maybelline Great Lash. I first tried this color when Maybelline came out with different fun colors for either an anniversary or some other limited edition promotion.
Of course when a makeup you like becomes discontinued or a limited edition it can strike panic.

I really like this bright teal/blue nail polish from Revlon with the cobweb art on the lid. So this was most likely made for Halloween and the other funny thing was how sparse the packaging is. Notice the white background with minimal writing and color. I wonder if this was given out as a promotion at an event and not meant for the mainstream market.
The eye shadow is a glittery black color and I thought I could play around with it as an eye liner. I really need practice in the eye lining department.
