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.
