5 Steals and a Splurge

Happy Monday, all!  Sorry for the lack of post on Friday.  It was a ridiculously hectic day and Blogger was being less than cooperative.  But for now, I am free as a bird! Friday was my last day of full-time work and now I am working part time for my company and get to work on a few of my own projects before school starts in the fall.

Today's guest post is from the witty and thrifty Christina from Down and Out Chic.  Christina's blog is a great mix of soothing interiors and thrifty fashion finds, and I always leave her blog feeling so inspired! 
Hi Urban Gals, I'm Christina from Down and Out Chic, and I think it's safe to say that I live for the thrill of a good thrifty find. Below are some of my favorite finds for the season and a splurge that has a permanent place on my wish list.

1). The 5x7 "zigzag" printed rug ($69) comes in three great shades and the chevron pattern is fun and modern. I love the softness of this sea foam color. 

2) I recently purchased this black maxi dress from F21 ($10) an it is undoubtedly one of the most comfortable articles of clothing I own. The silhouette is flattering and can be dressed up or down. I don't generally have a lot of luck at F21 so I was pleasantly surprised by this dress. I think I might need to stock up on multiples! 

3) A classic fedora is a must for days when my hair refuses to behave or when I want to add a bit of edge to a frilly dress. This cuban style by The Hatter Co. ($7.99) definitely fits the bill. 

4) This handmade, cheeky leather bunting necklace ($12.50) by Super Duper Things is fun yet the gold is slightly sophisticated. I'd wear it with just about anything.

5) I bought these Deena & Ozzy sandals ($39) recently and have been wearing them nonstop. They're comfortable and have a flattering shape. Definitely order a half size down as they run a bit large. 

6) The Eames molded plastic arm chair ($349) is a splurge both my husband and I can agree on. It's timeless and my home will forever feel unfinished without one. (Big Sigh).
