So I caused a minor sensation on Instagram on Friday night. I decided to hit up Co-Star on my way home from work “just to look” at what they had from their huge sale. I picked up a few things to try on, one of which included a burger-print mini-dress. It was absolutely ridiculous but what the hell, right? I figured it would be a funny Instagram photo, if nothing else. I tried it on, snapped a picture in the fitting room and immediately my phone started blowing up with likes and comments, ex. “OMG HOW WHERE WHAT PERFECT”
It ended up being “when being ironic goes wrong” kind of situation because at first it was just for the fun of it/a photo op but once on, I found that I actually liked it. And it was the last one in my size & I knew I would regret it if I left the store without it. I think it’s going to be fun for flouncing around Austin in the summer and would be super cute paired with the right belt, denim jacket & boots. If you’re interested, the label is Local Celebrity and a quick search for “local celebrity burger dress” found that is currently on sale at Pac-Sun for $31.99 (I paid slightly more than that for mine but no worries, as I also feel good about supporting a local business)! I also made out with a good deal on a pair of jeans (The Shane by Genetic Denim). The are not sparkly in real life (just slightly shimmery) and are so soft and comfortable, like wearing clouds as pants.
Today we had a garage sale at my house to try to get rid of some things since I’m moving at the end of the month. My primary goal was to get rid of as much as possible (the more I sell, the less to haul to Goodwill later this week) but I made it a game to make back at least what I spent at between Maya Star & Co-Star and… I was able to more than double it! I won’t say how much but let’s just say you could buy a lot of burgers (or burger dresses) with that.
