Blonde again...and more C21 sale finds :)

Hello, my name is Michelle and I'm addicted to highlights. It's been almost four months since my last highlight so it was time for a little pick me up. Last week I found Jen from Arrojo on Craigslist - she was looking for a partial highlight model and while I'd prefer a full head of highlights, free is free :)

After three hours of pleasant chit chat I emerged a "Blake Lively blonde" (Jen's words) and overall I was pretty happy. I waited three days before I washed it and so far it's holding up beautifully.

Here I am sans makeup again. One of these days I'll get made up for pics. On the right is Jen, she's a dead ringer for my friend Izzy. And she's literally half my age...I can't believe I'm so old.

I didn't have a lot of time to shop in the City so I prioritized and hit the Rack. I tried on a cute Haute Hippy $550 dress that was marked down to $80 - and I would have grabbed it had one side not barely covered my ass. I get the asymmetrical thing but c'mon. If one side is going to hit my calf the other should at least cover my upper thigh. I passed because it was too short and truthfully it wasn't the best cut for me. I'm trying to find a new look and go outside my comfort zone (i.e. not a LBD) but I really have to show my waist and this hid it.

I know it doesn't look so short but on me it was indecent.

So other than Jen's $20 tip and bus/subway fare it was a pretty inexpensive day :)

And of course I had to go back to Century 21 to see what else got marked down. Here are a few more of my favorite finds...

For my SIL V - V Couture by Kooba $15

Pretty purple faux leather with studs - I wish I picked more of these up for friends.

Crocs for V - these rang up for $2.50!!!
Crocs for my sister Oogie, $6.75. I also got a pair in hot pink for my niece A.

Z Spoke by Zak Posen wallet $15. I love the color but strangely it does not have a built in change purse so I'm not sure it's for me. The leather has an interesting pebbled finish.
A girl can always use cheap Spanx. The leggings retailed for $72 and I got them for $10. The tights were about $4.25 each. I got an extra pair of the leggings in sz S if a FOM wants them :)
Ralph Lauren socks for DH, $.80 and $.99. I also got him a black leather Jack Spade wallet for $10 but it's already in his pocket LOL.
Rebecca Minkoff tote, retailed for $198 - I got it for $30! Not sure I need it but it was so cheap!
Saved the best for last! My new BCBG trench coat $42, retail $248. It's such a statement piece - I LOVE it!
Stock pic so you can see back. Loving the shoulder, studs and peplum details!

I was so excited when I spotted the leather jacket that I really wanted for 75% off but the shoulder was torn :( This trench more than made up for it.

So I do have some extras for FOM (friends of Michelle). I already gave a pair of Just Cavalli sunglasses to my sister D but I have tons more left. I decided to only keep four pairs for myself, and you all saw how many I got LOL. I've always picked up extras for friends but lately some of you have been a little flaky. So if you're family or a close friend (and you haven't pissed me off) contact me and I'll show you what I have for you :)

And yes Sheev, I have some stuff for you too. I got you the cutest leather jacket for 75% off. LMK when you want to meet this week.

My brother just told me he needs a few things so I'll be heading back this week LOL. Hopefully they'll be marking more stuff down! Let's see if anything is left after the weekend...

As always, happy shopping!
