If there's one mall store that I will always stand by, it has to be Charlotte Russe. As with any fast fashion establishment, you really have to pick and choose, making sure your purchase, however inexpensive, will actually get its screen time and not just be a dust magnet. However, there are a lot of hidden gems that I want to love on!
When I went into the store a few weeks ago, they had a great deal on skirts! Although I was tempted to indulge in a lot of cute looks, I left with this babe only, as most of the other ones were too see through, too short, too impractical, etc etc.
I have a long way to go until I achieve the perfect mix of high (and by high, I mean stuff that the everyday middle classer has no issues justifying, but I have to write a one-page list to even think about purchasing) and low, but I'm slowly becoming more aware of how to shop with my brain and not my impulsive emotions.
In other news, huge shoutout to the earrings. They were all the rage for elementary schoolers in Romania back in the day. And yes, I've had them for that long!
Thank you so much for stopping by!
