queenelizabeth 's Thoughts:

Part 2 of what I bought on Saturday.

H&M was having an amazing sale – lots of clearance items were 70% off, and everything on sale was buy one, get one free. I got that flapper dress, which I had been eyeing forever and hoping it would go on sale. Yes, it’s a bit late to be buying such a distinctive and recognizable item, but I’m hoping to wear it in a lot of less-obvious ways.
Like I’m doing here. The cape-thing around my shoulders (which makes me feel like a vampire, btw) is actually a stretchy pencil skirt with a zipper that can unzip all the way. It looked really awkward and lumpy as a skirt, but I started experimenting with it and draping it over my shoulders while trying it on in the fitting rooms. I took such a long time that the staff probably thought I was trying to steal something :O

And I got some new shoes at Marshalls (finally…I have more than 1 pair of heels). They seem to have upgraded the shoe section since the last time I was there, and I actually tried on several pairs that I considered buying. In the end, I got these shiny sneaker wedges that have a zipper on the side. I just hope the white part stays clean…(yeah right)

The shoes remind me of the mile-high chloe docs. Great find! I never find things like that at my Marshall's :(

i didn't even think of that comparison, but you're right! and Marshalls (at least the shoe section) has gotten a lot better recently, I'd suggest giving it another go! :)
