So today I get an email from Strut that reads they are having a 70% off sale the ENTIRE STORE! I know my New Years resolution was to NOT buy any clothes for 6 months, but 70% off the ENTIRE STORE. SEVENTY FREAKIN’ PERCENT OFF!!! *ugh* so I decided to slip into Strut (after making a stop Sprinkles to get some cupcakes).
Lets start with Sprinkles. Sprinkles is a cupcake bakery originated in Los Angelos, California. Celebrities such as Oprah have raved about this mini cake. One of my guys birthday was this past weekend and he asked me to get him a coconut cupcake. So I googled the best cupcake place in Dallas and I found that we had a Sprinkles. I went there Sunday and found that you can only get certain cupcakes on certain days. The cupcake I wanted would not be making it’s rounds until Monday. Since I was already there I decided to get the chocolate version of the cupcake he wanted plus two German Chocolate cupcakes.
Let me tell you, I know German Chocolate cake (I grew up eatting it because it was my dad’s favorite cake). Let me tell you, this cupcake was NOT good. *ugh* I’m not a fan of sweets really, but if I’m gng to eat a cupcake I want it to be worth it. First, the actual cake part was NOT good. It was bland and really wasn’t sweet. The German Chocolate cupcake frosting was not good either. In fact I just had to stop eating it. I got two of those cupcakes. I had planned on driving over to my boy’s house and giving the second one to him, but the way that cupcake tasted I was not going to waste my gas, walk up three flights of stairs, and subject him to that thing.
However, I did go again today because I really needed that cupcake and I decided to try a different cupcake to see if maybe it was just that the German Chocolate one was bad. (I do have an abnormally high expectation of German Chocolate cake). So I purchase the coconut cupcakes and one Cinnamon and Sugar cupcake. The Cinnamon and Sugar one was better than the German Chocolate cake, but it was still nothing to write home about. Well, it may not have tasted super good, but at least I got some cute photos out of it.
I finally make my way to Strut! Twenty minutes until closing. The thing I hate about the Dallas Strut in comparison to the Austin one, is the fact the selection isn’t as big. The Austin stores are bigger than the Dallas ones, therefore they can host a greater selection than Dallas can. That doesn’t take away from the fact that I did find some cute items in the store.
Shirt: Made by Cush. A cute cream and black crop tiered short sleeve shirt. This shirt is going to look soooooooooo hot in late spring or early summer. I’m planning on wearing it with some black skinny jeans and some 4 inch pumps that some how match it in a way. I’m sure I can get away wearing it now with a cute bomber jacket and a studded clutch pocketbook. The shirt retails for $36, but I got it for $10.80.
Shoes: Made by Qupid. They are named System 53 and are a grey faux snake skin pump. The heel is about 4 inches high and I could probably get away with pairing it with the shirt if I played my cards right. The shoes retail at $36, but I purchased them for $10.80.
Earrings: I bought 2 pears of earrings. I don’t have any black earrings, so I picked up this really cute gold and antique gold owl earrings. In fact, I’m going to wear the owl earrings to work tomorrow. The second set of earring was the cute red bow ones. I got them for one reason… HELLO KTTY BOW!!! The earrings have me inspired to do a Hello Kitty inspired look. The earring both retailed for $12 each… therefore I got the lot of them for $3.60 each.
The total of this mini haul was ONLY $28.80. We all own clothes that cost more than that, and I was able to do a mini haul getting quality items for that price! Therefore, it was acceptable to break my resolution… However, when the clock strikes 12 the resolution starts over!
P.S Accessories don’t count! Just clothes… and shoes… I’ll throw in shoes too…
