100th Post + All Tatted Up

Hello dolls and welcome to frugal.fatshion.frenzy's 100th post!!!
I am very excited to have made 100 posts, and even more excited to keep on blogging! Originally, I had made a really snazzy video for this post as a celebration, but for some reason now that it is uploaded on YouTube, the sound is not jiving with the movement in the video, so it looks like some really bad dubbing from an old Chinese kung fu film. I recorded it back in October to show you some fun things I got on a Target haul. I was pretty nervous, too, as I am sure most of us are when making a vlog. I was so nervous at one point that I even called zebra stripes leopard print. Oops. If you really want to waste 13 minutes of your life watching it, you can find it here, but I won't post it on here and subject you to the craziness.
So, you've seen these pants before, but I wore them a different way yesterday:
I look like hell in these photos...to tell you the truth I felt like hell too. My apologies.
Top: NY&Co, $14.99 a few summers ago
Cardigan: Wal-Mart, $12
Skinny Cargos: Old Navy, $19.80 on sale
Leopard Flats: Target, $12.99
Necklace: Banana Republic Outlet, $14ish
Aren't these bracelets cute? Got them yesterday at H&M, $3.95 each.

And the post finale, MY NEW TATTOO! (it is also my first/only tattoo, and was drawn by me.)
Sorry for the blood, this is the best picture I have of it yet, and it was taken immediately after I removed the bandage! But aside from that, pretty cool huh? It holds a lot of meaning for me...I love it.

Hope you've had a happy hump day, and thank you SO MUCH for travelling this incredible blogging journey with me! Here's to 100 more posts!

Double Time

This past Saturday brought about two outfits! During the daytime, I opted for a super-cozy, run around town and do errands type of style!
Top: Avenue, $6 on clearance last winter
Sweater: Avenue, $10 on clearance last winter
Leggings (with stirrups!): Avenue, $25ish last year
Boots: Avenue, last fall
Necklace: Old Navy, $3.49 on clearance this summer
Wow, I did not realize that this whole outfit was from Avenue! But I love it for a casual Saturday. The leggings are a ponte knit, so they can pretty much be worn as pants with this flowy sweater, which I clearly take full advantage of. And the stirrups make them perfect for boots!

On Saturday night, I went out with a group of my friends to a bar that plays alternative music and everyone dances their little hearts out. I had a blast! My Mom took these photos, can you see the puppy anywhere? He wanted to be in the photos ;)
Black Tank: F21, $3.80
Lace Tank: NY&Co, $20ish before coupon last spring
Cropped Cardigan: Torrid, $24 after coupon
Corduroy Skirt: Torrid, $15 on clearance
Leggings: Target, $6
Shoes: Lane Bryant, $24.50
Tonight I went to Sephora's VIB event and bought a new skincare system because, well - and I'll be honest here- I am having a serious case of adult acne. I keep getting breakouts all over my face, and I cannot figure out what is causing them. One of the sales reps at Sephora suggested the Boscia Clear Complexion Kit, so I bought it and am going to try it. I'll let you know how my experience with it goes. What do you use to keep your skin clear? I will take any suggestions I can get!

Hey! Guess what!?!? Tomorrow is Friday! Wooo!!!! :) Hope you're getting geared up for the weekend!


Tuesday, November 9, 2010


So this weekend was the date. I actually ended up going on a spur-of-the-moment blind date on Friday as well, and it went alright. I had fun. However, I did not really feel any connection with the guy. So it was a good practice for the next date.
Sunday's date was a slightly completely different story. If you follow me on Twitter, you probably saw that the guy ended up being great on the outside but was actually a total creep who could not keep his hands to himself. Ew. No thanks, honey. I'm classy and such.
After feeling a full-on bottom grab, I ended up pretty much telling him how inappropriate he was and storming off. I kept thinking of that Monica song "I don't get down on the first niigghhttt..." ha :)

Here is the outfit I wore for Friday's date...I really loved it for a night of walking around a swanky outdoor mall and going out for a nice dinner.
Dress: Old Navy, $29.50 before coupon
Leggings: Old Navy, $6
Belt: Lane Bryant, $2oish I think....
Jacket: Avenue, $35 after coupon
Boots: Target, $29.99

I love this purpley/gray cowl-neck dress from Old Navy. In the reviews on their site, quite a few people seemed to think it was too short, but for those of us who happen to be vertically challenged, it fits fabulously. Not to mention, the price point is fantastic. Old Navy has really been stepping up their game lately...anyone else notice this?

I apologize for this post's obvious lack of detail and effort. My sleepiness is completely to blame. I feel like I have needed to catch up on sleep for the past week and a half. I sort of wish I could sleep through a day.

I have other outfits from this past weekend that I want to show you, but since I'm feeling lazy, and have a feeling that other outfits this week will not be super fun, I will save them for another day this week.

I hope you are dragging less than I am! And I hope you're having better dates ;)

I'ma Get More Shine In A Little Bit

I can't help it. I LOVE the song "Whip Your Hair" by Willow Smith. She is just so stinkin' cute.
Here are photos of my outfit from yesterday. Sorry I look so pathetically sleepy. I was.
Dress: Kohl's, 3 or 4 years ago
Belt: NY&Co, $1.99
Leggings: F21, $5.80
Boots: Torrid, $48 before coupon

In other news, I've been talking to the "date" guy all week, and I can't really seem to get a clear signal from him. Sometimes he flat out annoys me and other times he's super sweet. We actually skyped the other night and it was a good time. We will see what this date on Sunday has in store.

PS- What should I wear on a DATE?????? In case you don't remember, this is all new to me! Eep! Any advice would be much appreciated.

All my ladies if you feel it, go on do it do it, whip your hair! ;)
