Scalloped skirt in La-La-Land

You know how everyone has those few stores they go into where they don't even bother with the non-sale items?

That's me and Urban Outfitters.

I love the store and what they offer: the style is great, the ideas are astounding and the modern looks make me swoon. But here's the thing, $50.00 for a tank top because it's worn-in? No, thank you!

The upside of these high prices is the fact that the "Sale" section is always stock-full of great items for cheapy, cheap, cheap. So whenever I head into Urban Outfitters- it's a b-line to the Sale section

And so began the love story of me and my new scalloped skirt... originally $68.00 and on sale for $19.99.

It's creamy, it's delicious, it's trendy, it's stretchy... it was oodles of fun to wear to my friend's graduation party on Friday- the party where I noted I would be off to la-la-land aka the land of dancing, laughs, beer pong, fake eyelashes, cocktails, music, cute skirts and bangles.

I definitely was in la-la-land and here's a glimpse of what I was referring to... (I even took proper outfit pics this time):

Skirt: Urban Outfitters Top: Victoria's Secret circa 2007 Slinky bracelet: F21

I also couldn't get enough of The Boy...

And loved being with my friends...

{I can pose all I want, but the candid picture directly above is really the gist with my friends...}

I didn't forget the reason for the season either:

Happy Graduation James and Brian!

Have a fabulous 2nd-day-of-the-week!

What stores entice you to skip the main floor items and head straight to the sale racks??

Haaa I am the exact same with UO. EVERYTHING I have from there (minus my cutesy watch which was cheapo from the get-go) is from the sale section. There is no shame in that, there sale is probably my favourite! I love your skirt, you look absolutely amazing! xo

A.Co said...

OMG you look gorrrrrrgeous!!!

I looove the skirt, what a fabulous deal and I'm so happy to see a close-up of those FABULOUS shoes. I was wondering what they looked like (bc the sidebar pic of this outfit it a lil' blurry and hard to tell :) and I'm obsessed. I would like those shoes. Now. LOL.

Secondly, your hair is beautiful!!!!!!

Lastly, I heard ya, about the sale racks. For me, it'd probably be Banana Republic. I mean, I LOOOOVE the store, but buying there isn't always the most price-conscious thing to do.

Oh, great skirt! It looks fabulous on you! I love the black and white! I do that in Banana Republic, I never buy anything there that's not on sale, I just have to wait a few weeks and everything will migrate to the sale rack! XO!

Kinsey Michaels said...

Your scalloped skirt is so adorable! I've been on a mission to find one too. Can't believe you got one at such a steal! I am the same way with Urban Outfitters, I'll only buy something from there if it's on sale. Same goes for Arden B :)

PorkStar said...

Very, very nice, dear. Nice pictures too.

Jaime @ La vie...J'aime said...

That skirt is ADORBS. Great find. I acutally just got a blouse there for $19.99, originally $60- score! They do have good sales and if you wait/watch an item, it nearly ALWAYS goes on sale!

Yes, I know, no pics of me in VT :(

Nathalie said...

ooh such a great find this skirt. And your outfit posts are getting better and better.

I mentioned you in my latest post, as you inspired me to get my pleather leggings out of the wardrobe again :)

OMG. Miss Caitlin, you are an absolute knockout. The photos of you from behind wearing that ultra-feminine white Urban Outfitters skirt and Victoria's Secret black top should be on the covers of magazines. You are just sooooo attractive. i especially like the second photo. i can't get over how good you look (sorry). Your friends are cute too. The photos at the graduation party of you and your smiling friends and of you with the camera are turning me on too much (naughty me), so i'd better take a break from looking. Sorry for ogling you but you do look hot (sorry again ).

Leia said...

You look amazing!

Miss*Kimmy said...

LOVE THOSE SHOES and the first pic is gorgeous!! (they all are)

Lisa Lisa Lisa said...

You are hot hot hot in that outfit!! I too go straight to the sales at Urban. I seriously can't get over you in that skirt; hotness! I'm so tempted to run down to UO right now to see if I can wiggle my ass into that awesome skirt too.
By the way, you have such lovely hair. It looks so healthy and happy, just as hair should =)

Julia, the Thanksgiving Girl said...

The b&w picture of you and the boy is adorable! The way you look at him in this one is priceless, you look so in love awwwww, wait no, major AWWWWWWWWWWW :) Love your skirt and how those ruffles on it are so subtle! Awesome picrures in general, I love how you look so happy and it definately seems like you had a great time!

P.S. I am Russian!! And World Cup for Americans is exactly like Super Bowl for Europeans, yeah :)

Niki Asimakidis said...

chic skirt!

Erika said...

Honestly Caitlin these are some of the most gorgeous pictures I have EVER seen of you - loving the heels!

I have to agree with you in regards to UO...way overpriced most of the time. I always head to their sale racks! :)

Katie said...

Gorgeous pics - love the outfit! I check out the sales in almost every store, you just never know and I don't want to miss out on any great deals :)

Rasha said...

Great pictures! Love the heels!

Scrummys said...

You looked so good that night. I have a few pictures that I'll send to you, too. My store for the sale rack is BCBG - 70% off is prime!

LadyBugSays ... said...

Very cute skirt!! There are alot of stores(pretty much the one's that I think are overpriced) where I head straight the sale rail and skip everything else!

Jadorelesfleurs said...

Wow ! The skirt is pretty :)

I have never been into UO, but I'll definitely check out the sale section (:

I feel the same with UO... I head to the sale racks then I just browsed through the new arrivals.

Love your skirt... it's sweet and hot at the same time. Great outfit Caitlin. xoxo

Mariel said...

Um first of all, holy hell you have hot hair! I love the red tints. Second, I'm all about Urban's online sale section! So many goodies. Third, you and your boy are adorable. And fourth! Is that sun I see? Where did you find it and how can I get some? (I live in Newberg/Seattle... as I'm sure you've noticed being in Portland, sun has been no where to be found)

Kara said...

Love love love that skirt! Super seks! My fave clearance rack store is probably Forever 21, lol. So unoriginal.

Panty Buns said...

i know i already said it before in the comments on this post, but i just couldn't help but say it again. You really rock that white scalloped skirt.

Holly said...

C-U-T-E skirt! I remember when it was age appropriate for mew to wear that length...oh the days1

I always scope out the sale racks first. I was so spoiled working in fashion...I got the best deals on some awesome clothing (we are talking $3 and $5 for designer stuff!)
