Be mine.

Although I don't have a Valentine this year, I refuse to be a scrooge. It's still a wonderful day to celebrate the people you love! I thought I'd come up with a dream Valentine's Day date outfit, just for fun since I won't be going on one myself. Ahh well! Everything on this board is under $50 (except for the Sergio Rossi shoes.. a girl can dream, right?), so shop away, friends!

Zara Boyfriend jeans, $59.90 (okay, I lied, but that's cheap for jeans!)

French doodles

A set of drawings to be used for a menu project for a french food truck. Working on this project really took me back to when I traveled to Paris over the summer. Such a lovely city! The snobby smoking french man that's the first of the set is not actually how anyone I met there was.. more like what I thought they'd be like. Oh, American stereotypes...

Comment if you'd like to see these made into cards.. I just might do it!

My favorite online shopping sites

Who doesn't love online shopping? It's so easy.. just browse, click, type in your credit card number, and it's at your door by the weekend. It's also easy to spend way more than you intended to and then have to call up mom asking for 50 bucks while your waiting for your next pay check to come in so you don't have to eat Ramen noodles for the rest of the month (I'm not the only one that does that, right?). So, here are a few of my favorite clothing sites that are super cheap (or at least super discounted) and won't break the bank.

A few notes: Ruelala, Obaz, and Ideeli require memberships. They're worth it, and you can totally unsubscribe to any emails you might receive from them. Alloy is geared mainly towards teens, but there are still a lot of casual weekend pieces and a great jean selection of longer sizes, so they're worth a shot, too. GoJane has an AWESOME shoe selection, just so long as you can handle super high heels. Finally, NastyGal is not necessarily the cheapest site on the internet, BUT they carry tons of awesome trends for a lot less than what you could find at somewhere like Nordstrom or Saks.
