The Tiny Heart: Preppy Plaid

1.17.2012

Preppy Plaid

Button Down & Jeans-A&F, Cardigan-American Eagle, Flats-Target, Belt-H&M, Pearls-Vintage via Etsy

I hit the mall this weekend (yes, again) and they had absolutely amazing sales! The plaid shirt in this outfit was originally $68, on clearance for $20 and then an additional 50%, bringing it to $10! This is why I can hardly ever pay full price. Makes me so happy being cheap. It's the little things in life.

While I while shopping in A&F, out of the blue I was asked if I was interested in becoming a store manager. This is literally the third time they've offered me a job while shopping. It's pretty flattering since everyone that works there appears to be under 21 and they all look like models. I guess I fit the Abercrombie & Fitch preppy type?

  3. $10?! Seriously?! That is awesome! And I know what you mean about not ever wanting to pay full price. I get so excited when I find good deals on items I love!

    And that is so funny that A&F offers you a job when you shop! I used to work there back in high school...the loud music drove me crazy!

    1. Thanks! Haha my dream would be to own my own clothing store. I'm pretty sure I'm too old to work at Abercrombie anyway. They'd probably fire me when I hit 30 :)

    1. Thanks Courtney! Basically I'm cheap. I hate paying full price especially for things that I think are ridiculously overpriced anyway. If I have my eye on an item I'll usually just wait it out since most things will go on sale eventually. :)

    1. Haha I remember wearing plaid when I was in 6th grade!

      Jinx is a pit mix but we're not sure what he's mixed with since he's a rescue. Basically he's a mutt. We want to do the DNA test on him one of these days. :)
