Before there was h&m and Forever 21, there was Old Navy. Around here, the evolution of fast and cheap fashion went like so; Old Navy, then h&m and we're just now jumping on the F21 train. If you went to my highschool back in the day, you will remember how excited everyone was when Old Navy opened in Limeridge Mall. And then how excited everyone was the next day when they all wore their Old Navy tees to school.
'Dude, your shirt is totally awesome, it says 'Old Navy' on it in.'
'Your shirt is awesome too... it says 'Old Navy' on it... in sparkles.'
'Hell yeah! I waited in line..."
Anyways, sometimes I forget about Old Navy... but then Katy from Kansas Couture will bust out something really cute and surprise, surprise...it's Old Navy. My bestie told me that it's 50% off the last ticketed price time (this time of year sucks/rocks; there are the best deals but I'm always the most broke) so Matt and I went for cheap thrills. And thrilling it was. I got the jacket in my last post for $13 and then got a ton of basics including these pants (which Katy has along with the jacket ,so I feel like a style suck but it was there and so cute and so cheap) for $5 and the slouchy top for $2. A little bit of fun styling and no one would ever know I got the majority of this outfit from the same place your mom gets her fleece pull-overs.
And in non-fashion news, someone decided Matt and I were responsible enough to take care of 2 young kids for a week. I got maybe an hour of sleep last night and I'm surviving off the adrenalin of getting both kids on the school bus on time this morning. High five to all the moms who read this... so much respect for you. The little girl asked me why I always dress fancy and I just thought 'oh honey, you ain't seen nothing yet!'...
