Funky Frugal Finds

Lately I've noticed that we're all covering the same websites, that we're all talking about the same trends. Everyone's trying to get attention for their blog, but on the flipside, no one's giving any back. I mean, with school starting, who has the time?
I get out of school at 5:20. P.M. Consider that, and then ask yourself, "Do I have the time?". Um, unless you're one of those fabulously annoying AP kids, YA DO. So, here are a few little items I thought might mix things up a bit.
This tee shirt is from a website I saw on one of my favorite new fashion blogs, Pink Balloons. I have to say, this was the only tee that I found which wasn't blatently crude (except for the one Pink featured), but if you want to cruise the website where I found it, here it is.
In my opinion, these Mary Janes are the coolest kicks in the cave...or at the least the most original. Get 'em while they're hot (or at least glazed) by clicking here.
Last but not least, for your room, for your wardrobe, I bring you...monkey stencils! Actually, in case you haven't noticed Urban Outfitters carries a wide variety of stencils (including designs not involving primates) for surprisingly low costs. If you're dying to redo an old tee shirt, click here.

Now, for an announcement. My next post will feature every fashion blog I can find. That means yours and probably all your friends', who can even email me anything specific you or they want me to say about your blogs by clicking here! The ultimate PR for your blog is coming soon. Be prepared...

i totally know what you mean how we're all convering the same things. I feel sometime it's like once you see on fashion blog, you've seen them all.
I'll visit the blog later to check out all the links.

Thanks about the blog! Yours is awesome too! The book is really good, I'm glad you want to read it.

Those are extremely adorable shoes. They make me want to wear a pink poodle skirt or a denim mini. But I would probably go with the denim mini :D.

Hey, trading links would be cool. And yeah, you're right, the blogsphere is very competetive, and in the end we all pretty much cover the same topics. I try to be different in my own way, if I see someone write a topic about something I'll try to avoid it. It's fun to see other peoples' takes on fashion anyway, and it's always nice to know what's out there.

You have a very good point! I'm trying to make my blog a bit different before school starts, but I doubt that school will have that much of an impact on my blog. (It'll probably have a positive effect if anything; seeng/posting about what people are doing with fall fashion trends.) I'm about to make a post about Andy Warhol...I'm trying to include alot of different little things, and I think I'm starting to get there...=]

The donut mary janes! Not only have they been my profile picture for ages but they're like, the cutest shoes ever! I have yet to see them on any other fashion blog. I nearly had a heart attack when I noticed them on yours. I found you through I Am Fashion.
I hope to start reading you!

Reading these kind of posts reminds me of just how technology truly is undeniably integral to our lives in this day and age, and I am fairly certain that we have passed the point of no return in our relationship with technology.


I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Societal concerns aside... I just hope that as technology further develops, the possibility of uploading our brains onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's a fantasy that I daydream about almost every day.
