Give Thanks

4:23 PM
There are many things I'm thankful for this Thanksgiving, such as the health of my family and the friends who stand behind me. Being with my family today made me realize how lucky I am to be surrounded by love and happiness. My outfit this thanksgiving was extremely affordable thanks to Marshall's and TJ Maxx. I combined an otherwise colorful look with dark accessories and leather, which made the look more season appropriate especially since there is already snow on the ground where I live, about 30 minutes outside of Boston.

What I'm Wearing: 
Printed dress (TJ Maxx $10.00)
Leather Jacket (Marshall's $24.99)
Black Betsy Johnston tights (Marshall's $17.99 for a three-pack)
Rampage purse (TJ Maxx $24.99)
Awesome* heels (Marshall's $10.00)

I've been very busy lately, and I've recently gotten a job in retail, seeing the behind the scenes of stores is very interesting! But I'm here to share some homecoming pictures, since they were recently posted on Teen Vogues website in this article . My homecoming celebration is not as fancy as others, it is held in our cool cafeteria and the girls mostly wear short dresses and the boys in dress shirts. I found this dress during the summer at Forever 21 and knew I had to buy it for homecoming. It seems extremely simple at first glance, but up close, there are embroidered details on top of the black underlay. When I tired it on, it fit like a glove, and at the price of $20 I had to have it. I added a long silver necklace, knotted at the bottom, with matching silver shoes.

What I'm wearing:
Black dress (Forever 21 $20.00)
Sparkly heels (Payless $30.00)
Long necklace (Kohls $12.99)
