The notorious-acclaimed Charity Fashion Show only weeks away and I have not the faintest idea of what to wear. With an excuse to go shopping and mallrat expertise on my side, I set off to Westfield Valley Fair Mall over the weekend.
April 25, 2010
4:00 p.m Parking is no problem for this mallrat, who knows that advancing to the top level will save time and energy for the bigger task at hand.
4:15 p.m. The last thing I need right now is to lose myself in the middle of a Macy’s shoe sale. These Pastry Glam Night Pumps with fringe décor and slinky straps are just going to have to wait til I narrow down my outfit choices.
Pastry Glam Night $59
Mallrat Mantra: Have a plan.
Valley Fair may be a little overwhelming but I have my What, Where, & How Much
How much: $100
What: Dress, Accessories, Shoes
Where: GUESS, BEBE, Charlotte Russe
4:30 Wow, everything I try on at GUESS I love but…
The Lubov Bubble
…Did I find the one?
Mallrat Tip: It’s OK to Put on Hold
5:00 p.m Next stop BEBE. Here are my dressing room confessions
Belted Sailor Dress
Striped Halter Dress
Silk Party Dress
Romantic Shirt Dress
5:30 Some cute picks at Charlotte Russe
Satin Pleaded Dress
Satin Slash Dress
Pleated Tube Dress
Mallrat tip: Love the outfit that Loves you back
5:45 p.m. Thank goodness I always bring a change of shoes- my dogs are killing me! I still cannot find a necklace to go with my GUESS bracelet and earrings though; the closest fit I get is a Givenchy necklace back at Macy’s that’s way over budget.
Flower Hinge Bracelet
With only six dollars over budget, two accessories pieces that I would not have normally been able to get, and the excitement building up for Charity Fashion Show, I knew today being a mallrat paid off.
