The Results of My Shopping Adventure

Last night was hubby's Christmas party and we had a great time! We had drinks, a nice dinner, and did a hilarious "white elephant" gift exchange. Hubby ended up with a box of chocolate turtle candies and I ended up with $16 cash wrapped like a tootsie roll. It was a blast. Several of my friends have been asking for pictures of my outfit. After writing about my shopping dilemma here I figured some of you would like to see the pictures too.

Last week I headed to the local mall. It is a mills/outlet style mall that is set up very similar to a mall in Colorado and probably many more across the country. The mall is huge! I spent 4 hours there and only shopped 1/4 of the mall.

Besides finding a great dress and hot pair of shoes, I found a great bargain. Here is the breakdown of my outfit: dress from Dress Barn on sale for $20, shrug from Charlotte Russe $20, shoes from Off Broadway $40.


Don't you love this dress?

I even found hubby a tie that coordinated with my outfit

Thanks for all your suggestions! You ladies never let me down!
