To In-Vest or Not To In-Vest?

Okay ladies, I need some opinions here. If you haven’t already noticed, faux fur vests seem to be a big trend for the fall. I think they are so cute, but part of me is hesitant to purchase one for the following reason:  I can’t decide if I would

A) Look like an idiot because I live in south Texas (even though I wouldn’t wear it until it actually gets cold)
B) Look like I am trying to be a Viking
C) Look totally adorable

What do you think?

$50 Friday: Mad About Plaid

Plaid has been a big trend lately and it is going to stay that way for the fall. I love how it can make an outfit look very chic and simple at the same time. That, my friends, is right up my alley. As is this outfit…

  2. Forever 21, Saddle Stitch Skinny Jean
  3. Forever 21, Two Piece Mod Hoops
  4. Papaya, Anna Button Shaped Ankle Boot

Melis’ Make Believe Shopping

I’m Melis, one and only sister of Der (who is currently on blog maternity leave). I’m thrilled to be joining the cast of characters here at Tipsy Society and thought I would let y’all in on a little bit about me.

I’m a 20 something grad student at the superly awesome Texas A&M University working on joining the real working world within the next year (hopefully, depending on how tipsy I get). I am a proud dog mom to a speckled weiner, named Lily. She’s my half blind handicapable dogchild and I’m sure you will hear lots more about her during my stint here.

The other thing that I need to admit is that I am a true to the game make believe shopper. I place items in my online cart with no intention of ever buying them; it’s practice shopping for when I have a real job with a real paycheck. I have been a broke college student for 5+ years now so it’s honestly just a survival technique at this point.

Here are the items currently on my make believe shopping list:

  1. Forever21, Striped Rosette Beanie
  2. Old Navy, Shark Dog Costume
  3. Old Navy, Pom Pom Fringe Scarf
  4. Forever21, Impression Suedette Heels
  5. Papaya, Studded Fringy Bag
  6. Target, Back Ruffled Dress
