I found a new sleeveless black dress with tiny white polka dots for $7, count 'em, SEVEN dollars last week.
I go sleeveless in tanks in the summer because it's hot, but I prefer to cover my man-arms in cooler weather. So I went searching the clearance racks for shrugs yesterday.
(Nature Boy absolutely LOVES when I go shopping during the day. He is my homeschool hostage!!!! MWA-HA-HA!)
I found a teal shrug for $2 at a plus size consignment store that I've been wanting to check out. TWO DOLLARS, people!
I'm so proud.
My mom says teal doesn't go with black and white polka dots. I saw pshaw! Who's with me?!
However, pairing the dress with an unconventional color is presenting me with a shoe dilemma. I have a chunky black pair of Mary Janes, but since my calves are similarly chunky, I don't think they'd work with a dress. I also have a sexy pair of black Crocs, but somehow I think that pairing would be unwise. And I don't really want another pair of black shoes.
So I searched all the cheap-folk aisles at several stores until I found these.
(cue angelic music)
They have memory foam inside! (OOOH!)
And they're on sale for $27.99! (AHHH!)
Wait a minute. $27.99 does not mean "deal" in my vernacular. (C-H-E-A-P.)
So wise women, weigh in on my kicks conundrum. Is it crazy to spend $27.99 on shoes to go with a $9 outfit?
Or is it genius?
P.S. I'm having an OCD moment. Do teal shades have to match?
