Anti-Thrift Moment: VS's Redskins Apparel!

All items can be found here. :-)

If you wanted to buy me an after Christmas present, this would definitely be the purchase, lol! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! The Washington Redskins are my team & i think it's perfect that Victoria's Secret has come up with some cute designs for their clothing. I've secretly been waiting for a company (besides Modells) to feature some cute Redskins clothing that I can purchase. :-) Who's your favorite sports team? -K.D.

Holiday Part No.1 Outfit

This is the outfit from the 1st holiday party! I actually bought this dress in Katy, TX which is about 15 minutes away from us in Houston. It was $18. I'd already bought a dress from Wet Seal, but I sent that sucker back when I saw this one. I love interesting backs!...that will get me every time. My sis gave me that Nine West purse for Christmas one year & you already recognize my Nine West peep toes. ;-) And's my F21 feather necklace! I always get compliments when I wear it.

Merry Christmas ya'll!!!! :D Be back on Monday. I just painted my nails a festive red. :-)

Holiday Party No.2 Outfit

I know I said I'd be posting the outfits from both parties, but I don't have time right now. So I'm posting these...backwards right?! ;-)

Story behind the outfit: I used to hate this shirt. I don't even know why I bought it. I bought it from Wet Seal years ago and never wore it until now I think. I don't recall wearing it ever before. It stretches nicely over my preggie stomach and that's why I wore it! The skirt is from F21 (the same one from the post before this one) and you already know it was $11 and I got these Nine West peep toes from Burlington's for $20. That's it!

Another cheap outfit! :D Next holiday party outfit coming tommorrow!- K.D.

Heyyyyyy! (Outfit Post)

So I'm back from my "vacation", lol. There's a lot going on and since I've been preggie I haven't had as my outfit updates....I basically spent the majority of the 1st 3 months sick, nauseated, and in bed sick. : \ Not one of the best times of my life....But that's over & now I'm 4 & 1/2 months preggie. Yay! So you know what that means- OUTFITS! Here's one I took at RA Sushi place here in our new city, Houston. :-)

I was about 3 months preggie in these pics. Notice the blazer and belt??? They're my fave thrift store items...well so far. :D I got that skirt from Forever21 in Memphis. It was on sale for $11. All I can say is I'm soooooo glad it's stretchable or else I wouldn't be able to wear it, lol! It was the last item I bought before I found out I was preggie.

Have a great weekend! I wore this bangin' black dress to a holiday party a couple of weeks ago and tomorrow we're attending another one. So I'll be posting both outfits on Monday.

The Search For Preggie Clothes

I was browsing on the internet today looking for maternity clothes-actually maternity dresses. I really want to wear a lot of long dresses. I couldn't really find a lot of dresses that I actually liked. I did find a few though.....

Destination Maternity's Spaghetti Strap Maxi Dress, $19.99

.....And then I stumbled across some funny preggie shirts! I want all of these.

All of the tanks are by Leave Me B and they're $14.00. How cute are these?!-K.D.

CSN Stores Upcoming Product Review!

Hey everyone!!! Okay, so I'm back to blogging at ETTS. Thank you guys for hanging in there with me. I had no idea the 1st trimester was like this! Why didn't someone warn me??? I actually go for my 1st prenatal visit on Monday (wish me luck because I can't stand going to the doctor's office). I hope everything is okay with the baby. So while I've been away from blogging on ETSS, I received a cool email from CSN Stores for a review. Yay! So I put my morning sickness/all day sickness aside to check out their site. I was very surprised to find out they have over 200 online stores to choose from! :0 They have a site for everything guys-from cute shoes to bar stools!

With so many sites to choose from, I'm still trying to decide what to review. Here are some things I have in mind though.

Primo Hook on Nursery Tray $19.95 (Baby thoughts....)

Journee Collection Scoot 73 Ballet Flats $33.00 -preggie shoes! haha

And this is just the beginning of what they have to offer. ;-) I'm going to have fun picking the product to review, lol. -K.D.

August Times at Texas De Brazil!

So here I am...or was at one of my favorite restaurants in the whole wide word. #greedy Texas De Brazil. I just noticed that I kinda match with their decor. I feel so guilty...the hubs and I ate here 3 times in the month of August. (I'm just going to start calling him by one of his nicknames: Reign) We were only supposed to eat their once, but they kept teasing us with their complimentary dinners! So....we had to!!! LOL. One for my birthday, and then Reign's birthday and in these was our last night out in the D.C area. We just wanted to treat ourselves I guess, lol.

If you've never been to TDB you have to go. Their food is excellent! They specialize in brazilian steak. Reign & I agree that the filet mignon is the best steak on the menu! And did I mention the servers just keep bringing you steak, chicken, & pork until you turn tab to red. The cost is around $40-50 for the buffet...but if you sign up for their email they will start emailing you complimentary ones for holidays, anniversaries, birthdays, etc. Because there is not one in Houston, we definitely won't be going for awhile. :-( Closest one is in Dallas...Tip: Don't eat a lot before you go. ;-)

Okay on to my outfit. It's very simple.

Black leggings- $5 at Walmart
Red top (LOVE THE BACK!)- Burlington Coat Factory, $15
Shoes- Ross, Nine West, $20
Clutch- Bijoux Terner, $10

As you can see the jewelry was kept to a minimum. We'd been packing all day and I didn't feel like getting jazzy. Later ya'll. :-)-K.D.

New City: Houston & Going Away Dinner!

Hey ya'll!!!!! So if you've read my latest HairGurl post you know I've arrived in HOUSTON! :-) Been here for a week officially today. I apologize for the lack of posts, but with all the packing, moving, and driving i just could.not. Tired doesn't even describe how the hubs and I felt after the roadtrip was said and done. -_- We basically drove from VA to TX stopping in Charlotte, Atlanta, Memphis, Dallas, and then finally Houston. It took a week. So you're going to see pics starting from a few weeks ago...and these are the first!

This was the dress I wore to our going away dinner we had in D.C. (If you're in the D.C. area please check out Founding Farmers! That restaurant was amazing!) Got it at Ross for $7. The shoes were a gift from my sis in '06. They hurt so I barely wear them...

How have you guys been??? Got any new thrifty outfits? I'm catching up on hairstyles and outfits from my favorite blogs. Let me know of any new ones I should check out! I'm officially back like I never left. ;-)

No Outfit Posts....Roadtrip

Hey guys,

I forgot to mention it to my ETSS dolls (i did put it on HairGurl though...) The hubs and I are traveling on a roadtrip right now...In Memphis now so you know I'm happy. :D We've said goodbye to the DMV area and are heading to our new home in Houston, TX. Will post if I have time...I took some outfit photos and mistakenly deleted all the photos. So unfortunately, you won't get to see any of my Atlanta pics and the last days I spent in VA. :-( So pissed but I'm over it now. I'm just going to take even more photos now!!! I'll be back next week with photos galore.

Belt- Thrifted for 99 cents
Shoes- From my birthday pics, free. :-)
Feather necklace-from F21....can't remember the price, but I've featured it here at ETSS before.

My Little Black F21 Dress

Sitting down ready to eat!

I don't know why I was looking like that...

So the hubs and I went to a birthday party at the W's rooftop restaurant called POV. It was really nice....for the time we were there. They evacuated the entire building because a transformer caught on fire either by the hotel or under it....

I remember taking pics on the rooftop & then seeing smoke. It was crazy. People were coming out in their bathrobes from the shower. All we kept thinking was, "what about the food we ordered??". LOL, that's how hungry we were! The group ended up going to another restaurant nearby and we had a lot of fun.

This outfit is totally sponsored by Forever- the earrings, the dress, AND the shoes. The bracelet was $10 and it was from Bijoux Terner. For the life of me I can't remember how much the dress was...I think it was around $20. I bought it in December...The earrings were about $6. The shoes were around $25-30. I purchased the shoes & earrings with a gift card so free for me. ;-) I can't remember if I got the dress with the gift card too.....Anyway, that's the outfit. I would've worn this with my F21 belt had it not been stolen/lost in baggage claim.

Thrifty Stars: Drew Barrymore

The hubs just called my attention to this article on Yahoo. Drew Barrymore scored this cute little number for $25 at a thrift store.

According to the article, she paired it with $760 Yves Saint Laurent "Tribute" pumps. Drew looks very cute in her thrift store find! I love to see stars being thrifty. Just because you have more money, doesn't mean you have to spend more money. ;-) -K.D.
