new loves and old friends: pms





new loves
necklace ~ b. (a resale shop)
shoes ~ Jessica Simpson, thrifted
belt ~ gift
earrings ~ F21
bracelets ~ garage sale

old friends
jumpsuit ~ vintage, swapped

i have decided that if i truly want to save money and not buy as many clothes as i currently do, that i should only allow myself to shop when i have a serious case of pms. if i think something looks good on me when i have pms, then it must really look good on me. and i don't mean that to sound vain...i am really just trying to say that pms is life's way of making me see the worst in myself. thanks pms...you're a real friend.

also, someone please remind me next month to not go to Marshalls and try on eight different pairs of skinny jeans when i have pms. i came home feeling so dejected that i ended up eating a bag of chocolate chips for dinner. 

that always helps.

xo,
megan bird

  6. You look amazing in this jumpsuit! PMS sucks, like a lot. Your philosophy is a good one though about trying on clothes during that time. Lipstick always helps me feel better too :)

  9. I also try to shop when I have pms so I don't end up with super skinny clothes I can only wear a few days per month.

  11. This jumpsuit is awesome - it's kind of deceiving in a way, it almost looks like a maxi dress! Either way, it looks fantastic on you. And I might not be experiencing PMS right now, but I am dealing with her evil twin pregnancy hormones and so I totally get what you're talking about!! Chocolate chips do help though!

  17. Well Megan, I hope they were the Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate Chips? They are the only ones that really "do it" for me. That outfit, dress/pant dress is AMAZING!

    I am back and feeling at about 98%. I shall be at 100% tomorrow. All went well with the family thing and after driving 300 miles yesterday, we are a bit slower today. That accounts for the missing 2%. (hug)

  18. I never try on jeans unless I've starved myself for 3 days. Just kidding! So. How hot do you look in this jump suit? You look like you are otw to a modern studio 64 to dance your booty off! I love it!
