Gotta have faith

...Faith 21, that is. I finally girded my loins for the flourescent lighting, insanely lout music, and teeming masses of women a decade or two younger than me and took myself to the Faith 21 section of Forever 21 at the Mall of America. It was hard, but I was glad I did, because I got this brightly striped dress that I am loving like mad.

Outfit of the thrift shopping+Cafe studying

I wore it with a boatneck tee from American Apparel underneath because it's too cold to really be wearing a paper thin cheapy dress here. Also featured are my oxford shoes that I bought off ebay that were described as "Vintage 90s". Oh dear me, I am ancient.

I also went to Old Navy because I had a $25 gift card, thanks to diligent ad clicking on They let you earn points for visiting sites, and more points if you buy something. I mostly just buy stuff I was going to get anyway (like diapers!) and let the points accrue. I was able to pick up this dress for $15/free, and a couple of other things, too! I highly recommend this dress (here), with the caveat that it seems to run a size or two bigger than stated. I was swimming in the XXL, and not in a biggie tee cute way, in a baggy shoulders on a boatneck top way.
