Snakeskin & Fur

December 5, 2012 by Trina 7 Comments

Snakeskin again!? Are y’all tired of these yet? HAHA  This might be their 6th time on the blog in a month but I promise this is the 2nd time I’ve actually worn them. :)

I wore this to church and my weekly Target shopping last week and because I spent way too long picking out Christmas stockings, I didn’t make it home in time to get photos before sunset.

So ….. we took photos this past weekend. When it was 74* out. In December.

In other words, way too hot for fur but I managed to not look sweaty in these pics. Go me!

vest: Simply Vera from Kohl’s, babydoll tunic: H&M {2 years ago}, snakeskin skinnies: Dressbarn, booties: Steve Madden from 6pm.com

Shop this look:

Ok, let me talk about this vest for a minute because if it weren’t for Black Friday I wouldn’t be owning it.  If you follow me on Instagram/Twitter you may have seen my post about it.  I tried it on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving at Kohl’s and was dying to have it.  It was on SALE for $90 from $150.  I couldn’t justify spending that much on it so I reluctantly put it back on the rack.  But I put it in the very back of the rack {to hide it! haha} in case I changed my mind.  It was the only one left {and it was my size!} and wasn’t on Kohl’s website.  I decided to go back to the store on Black Friday at midnight to see if it was on sale for less than $90.  I was armed with a 15% off coupon and a $10 promotional gift card.  Plus I would earn $15 back in Kohl’s cash.  I have never seen so many people trying to get into a store.  There were probably 1,000 people there. Anyway, I walked in, found the vest right where I left it, scanned it and my heart jumped when it rang up $75.  I told myself it would have to be on sale for at least $75 for me to get it so I went straight to the checkout.  I paid $60 after my coupons and got back $15 so really it cost me $45.  Half of what it would have cost me earlier that week!  I was in and out in 15 mins and walked out of there with the biggest, dumbest grin on my face.  Yay for Black Friday!

{Hubs and I also scored new phones at Sam’s on Black Friday.  The new Samsung Galaxy S3′s for 96 CENTS!  Crazy talk, I know!  But it’s true!}

Did you get any GREAT Black Friday deals?!
