That's What Blog Girlfriends Are For...

Yesterday I talked about how over the weekend the husband and I went to the Lil' Wayne concert. I wanted to share today about what else I did over the weekend...you know, the thing that all most girls love to do...

SHOP! (duh)

But this shopping experience was a little different...Jess {from Polka Dots, Pearls, and Pink OH MY!} and I have became such great friends after meeting through our blogs that we decided to 'virtually shop' together! Why not?! We both loveeee to shop and since we couldn't be together we decided to call eachother while we were both at our locals malls and chat while we were shopping around!

Then, when we tried things on that we were unsure about buying we sent pictures to eachother to get the others opinion! Haha it was SO much fun & felt like we actually got to shop together!

Here's a look into our virtual shopping day...

Now ladies, no judging our apperances in these pictures..unwashed hair, minimal makeup, etc.

First up - TJ Maxx



Jess


Muah

we both ending up buying those dresses!

Now on to the mall I go...



this is a bad pic but this jumpsuit is soo cute & comfy..I had a coupon and got a great deal!
from Macy's



Jess lookin' purty in pink...

Then, I made my way to Francesca's (one of my favvvorite stores) and started wondering if this virtual shopping was a good idea since we were both working our way to being broke... ;)


{light pink polka dot top...Me: "What do you think?!"...Jess: "Get it!!!"}


a chunky silver necklace I also bought from Francesca's




Jess workin it in Ralph Lauren...
She's adding a wide belt to this!

With other various tops and dresses in between (not all shown)...our virtual shopping trip had to come to an end due to excessive spending.

But not before I made a pitstop at Yagoot
and made her jealous with my Fro-yooo!!! ;)


yum.

During my trip, I decided that it would probably be a smart idea to come home with something for the hubs so I bought him 2 shirts. The man doesn't enjoy shopping so I'm typically his personal shopper and I have no problem with that! I love picking out clothes for him :)

But it does come with one little rule..
he has to model them for me after (and subject himself to this pic on my blog hehe)


the compliant model of mine.


Soo do any of YOU ladies do this when you are shopping and you aren't with your girlfriends?! I loved having the second opinion and especially from someone who I met via blog world :)

xoxo.

  11. how fun!! I do this with my husband all the time =) I figure he is the one that has to look at me so as long as it is comfortable and looks good I generally don't care haha =) If he thinks I look good/cute/hot/etc that is what matters for me =)
