Website Wednesdays: plndr

The website I’m featuring this week is plndr. I was browsing through their site, and I fell in love! I found a TON of stuff I wanted, so the list is going to be rather extensive this week. ENJOY 🙂

$49.99 @ plndr

I’m allll about leather jackets. I have only one, and I wear it whenever I’m feeling a little badass ;-). I also love it because it doesn’t need much accessorizing. This one is fairly cheap, as well!

$24.99 @ plndr

LEOPARD PRINT<3 My favorite colors all wrapped in one dress. It doesn’t get better than this!

$16.99 @ plndr

I’m also diggin’ the tribal prints. This tank is super cute, and I love all the colors. It’d be great for summer here in Arizona!

$9.99 @ plndr

LOVE these sunglasses. The teal and white together is so cute. And as we all know, I lovelovelove teal 😀

$9.99 @ plndr (back of shirt shown)

$9.99 @ plndr (front of shirt shown)

I absolutely adore shirts with interesting details on the back. It’s like a little surprise. This shirt is super cheap, and the zipper back sold me. It’d be adorable with some black skinnies, and my wedges. Mmmmm.

$25.00 @ plndr

Lace detail also gets me! I love gray sweatshirts, but this one, with the lace….PERF. Gray sweaters with curly hair, loveeeeee.

$20.00 @ plndr

Gray seriously must be my go-to color. This dress has a little bit of yellow on it to spice it up from just a gray dress, to absolutely adorable. Love it!

$20.00 @ plndr

I’ve been needing a new bag for a while. My purse that I alwayssss wear is a brown purse, and it’s a Louis Vuitton. I LOVE the purse, but I’m not big on brown. I don’t ever feel like I match since I always wear black though :-(. Someone told me once that ‘your Louie doesn’t have to match you, you have to match your Louie.’ So true. I’ll always love that bag, but I would like a black bag, and this one is PERFECT. And cheap, too!!!

$25.00 @ plndr

Normally, I’m not a fan of orange, but I think it’s starting to grow on me just in time for Spring! Lovinnn’ this dress!

$20.00 @ plndr

Blazer ❤ ‘nough said.

$15.00 @ plndr

Graphic tees are soooo my thing. I love them because they’re so easy to wear, especially when you’re running late. And you can layer them under jackets. They’re just all around awesome.

$5.00 @ plndr

I’m a huuuuge tank top person during the summers in Arizona. There’s really nothing else you can wear considering if you put anything with more cloth on, you’ll melt. This one is so cute, and I love the pocket. Ahhhhh.

 

I need to go shopping now. 😦 I’m having withdrawals.

Bargain Shopping

Okay so we’re gonna rewind a little bit once again.

Flash back to December of 2011. A friend of mine, Iris, asked me to take a shopping trip with her for a winter photo shoot she had planned, and she wanted me to help her pick out some cute outfits.

We got a bit of a late start, and I told her I wanted to stop by Plato’s Closet before heading to the mall, so we could find me a new pair of jeans. My favorite Guess pair were rapidly unraveling, and I wanted to get a pair to tide me over until after Christmas, when I could afford to buy a brand new pair.

When we arrived at the Plato’s parking lot, we noticed a nail salon, and decided we wanted to get our nails did. She offered to pay for mine, in exchange for helping her out (how sweet, right?!?). I got the gels (FINALLY!!!). And we socialized a bit with the owner of the salon and his family.

The owner gave me $5.00 off and they lasted for a little over a week (not great, but normally, my nails only last a few days). And I absolutely LOVED the gel. My nails felt soooo much stronger, and it wasn’t like acrylics at all. I will definitely be doing gels again, if I ever get my credit card paid off.

So after getting our nails didddd, we went into Plato’s Closet, searching for jeans, and coming out with nothing near just jeans.

Iris ended up getting all her stuff at Plato’s, spending only a fraction of what she would have, had she bought brand new. She got everything from jackets, to sweater dresses, to boots, to a new purse. She did awesome!

And while I intended to get jeans, I ended up buying a few items… that were not, in fact, jeans.

I spent maybeeeee $60.00 total. Which I really didn’t haveeee, but I bought a bunch of awesome items. Forgive me, I don’t have exact prices or pictures, considering Plato’s doesn’t have an online store, and they’re all previously owned articles of clothing. But I found some pictures and estimated pricing:

$20.98 @ Target

This is pretty close to the blazer I bought (and I had been wanting a blazer for FOREVER). I spent maybeeee $15.00 on it, and it’s in great condition. I roll the sleeves up, and there’s a black and white striped lining, super cute.

Old Navy

I couldn’t for the life of me find a price on this beauty. But this is the vest I bought, for $4.00! Holy cow. I was innnnn love. I wore it on New Years underneath my blazer, with gray nail polish and my lovely gray boots.

This was one of the only pictures of me that night. Wasn’t the greatest night ever, but hey, I looked pretty cute 😀

Abercrombie & Fitch

I also purchased a top similar to this one! The whole back is lace, the front is plain white. It was super cheap…maybe $5.00. I wear it alllll the time, even though it’s a tad bit big for me.

Juicy for $140.60

This is most definitely not the hoodie I bought, even though it’s adorable. Mine is from Forever21 originilly, and the stripes are smaler, and it doesn’t have the black on the bottom or the sleeves. It’s so adorable, and I love a good hoodie. Wear it all the time, and I can’t imagine I spent more than $20.00 for it.

And last, but not least, I bought the shirt I’m wearing underneath my leather jacket. For like $5.00. It’s a tank, from Forever21, of course. And I LOVE it.

 

As you can see, I did pretty good considering I probably shouldn’t have spent ANYTHING. I never knew I could bargain shop so well; usually I just buy it if I like it, even if it’s full price, and the price is ridiculous. But I was pretty dang proud of myself after our little trip to Plato’s.
