Mardi Gras Weekend

So here's my outfit that I wore for Mardi Gras. We went to Galveston Island in Texas & the hubs and I had so much fun! I'd never celebrated Mardi Gras so it was definitely fun. I really underestimated my pregginess....I was soooo tired by the end of Saturday. I woke up Sunday morning still tired! Look at that preggie face...
I can't remember how much this dress cost but it was around $10 at Ross. I have no idea where that scarf came from...maybe from my mother? And ya'll will recognize the flats from here. Oh and that flower clip is from J.Crew. It was $10 as well.

That jean jacket is another favorite of mine. I only have 2 jean jackets, both from my sis and I love them because they're both so cute and unique. My sister has the best taste in clothes. :-) I will get a better shot of the detail of this jacket later on...Good night everyone! :-)-K.D.

What to Wear for Maternity Shoot?

My maternity photo shoot is coming up and I don't know what to wear! Well, usually I tend to gravitate towards dresses. That's what I initially wanted to wear (and still do), but I'm think about showing off my stomach a little too...maybe. I don't know. I saw this in Forever 21 and thought it would be perfect for the shoot....This print just spoke to me!

It's retailing for $27.80. I went to F21 last weekend and tried on 2 dresses. This wasn't one of them. I remember seeing it, but I didn't want to try it on. I tried on the other dresses because they were cheaper and the fabric was stretchier (word?). Unfortunately, I couldn't find those dresses on the site. : \ I loved the dresses I tried on, but I wasn't quite sure I wanted to get them. PREGGIE BRAIN. lol!

So I've got a dilemna because I do not want to take photos in 2 different outfits. I wanna get something to wear and stick w/ that for the entire shoot. I'll either get a dress or something that will show my stomach off like a one of those cute preggie crop tops. What to do? I think I'm gonna check out Ross for some of their dress deals. It's also time to raid my closet to see if I have something that can be used as a pretty top that shows my bare stomach. Gotta make a decision quick. It's 2:00am. Off to bed I go. Night ya'll. :-)-K.D.

Burlington Coat Factory Suit

I was browsing through some old pics and found this one from May '07 while visiting Memphis. I bought this linen suit from a Burlington Coat Factory in VA. I remember finding it and thinking it was so cute with it's little belt (even though it's twisted in the pic!) & all. It was $40. I still wear the pieces every now and then, but I haven't worn the suit as a whole in forever. I wonder will the skirt fit after I give birth. It was already starting to get a little tight....we'll see.

Buying a Stylish Diaper Bag

I've decided I won't be buying a traditional diaper bag. Not my taste at all. I've decided to just buy a big stylish bag. ;-) The bag I buy has to be fly like these....

Unfortunately, these Parazul bags retail for $340. 0_O Aren't they so cute though?!

So I'm gonna be checking out some sites for the perfect diaper bag. I'll let you know what I find. :-)

Summer Dress in January

I've been going back and forth on whether or not to discontinue ETSS. Truth is, I don't really have as many outfits to post as I did before. Also, I'm not working full-time so sometimes I'm at home all day wearing nothing that is post worthy, lol. And since I'm pregnant, I've been spending a boatload of time researching carseats, strollers, breastfeeding, etc. I haven't really been allotting myself any free to do some of the things I enjoy like blogging here. (Remember I still blog here and here too) So....I've decided to continue ETSS! As a matter of fact, I'm going to re-dedicate myself to it. I love to post my cheap outfits so I'm gonna continue to do just that. I will sprinkle in baby stuff with it of course. ;-) The main focus will still be on cheap, thrifty deals though. Ya'll are not getting rid of me that easily. :-)

So without further ado, here's some photos of me taken this weekend after the hubs and I came back from Frenchy's.
Everytime I wear this dress, I have to always pick up the bottom half! lol!
I love this dress! This is a 4 year old F21 dress I bought. I don't remember how much it was, but it's very comfortable! That's what I look for these days as the Munchkin grows inside of me. The weather was so pretty this past weekend that I had to wear it. We're supposed to be getting snow today and tommorrow, but hopefully we won't. *fingers crossed*

Later. :-) -K.D.
