I got the offer letter, signed on the dotted line and start as the Investor Relations Manager on Monday. Thank goodness for promotions! And little did they know, I'm wearing a bunch of (nearly embarassingly) cheap clothing. Tee hee hee hee.

What I Wore During My Last Day at My Old Job!!!!!:


  • Dress: Walmart, On sale $5
  • Sweater: Target, On sale $4.99
  • Shoes: Off Price Shoe Warehouse $5.99
  • Necklace: From my unusable-for-pursehook vintage jewelry stash.... $.50???

Total: $14.98

The first time I saw Maria wear these shoes, I fell in love. So she took me to the store where she bought them and now we both have a pair. I know it's hard to tell from the pciture, but they are a slightly aquamarine blue patent, with a cream buckle detail. I might have to lookfor this dress too. It's a great sheath.

Oh my goodness! I am always looking for cute navy heels and it just seems impossible.

I am sooooo jealous!

So I stopped by Walmart on my way home to try to find this dress. It was only marked down to $13 at the store I went to. Total bummer. As far as I can tell, that Walmart never really puts anything on sale. Which location did you go to, Maria??

Thanks, guys!

Also, I plan to return to the blog after I've hit my goal weight at the end of the summer. I read Tina's blog and all of your comments to keep me motivated. It helps to know you're going through everything with everyone else!!
