for those of you still in school or if you work at a school, what have you bought so far? i did a little shopping today and thought i'd share. i am a young teacher, and was going through my wardrobe and realized i don't have many basics. so that's what i was hoping to get- basics for my 'professional' wardrobe.

1st pic- all from marshalls- they were having a crazy sale- whatever you buy (clothes and shoes only) is tax free unless its over 300 dollars. woohoo
the red and grey striped shirt is from juicy couture for $20, the black long sleeved is express $3.00 haha, the grey shirt is the limited $12.00, and the dark blue flats are tommy $19.99. nothing too flashy or expensive, but all good for work. :smile:

2nd pic- has nothing to do with work, i just found it at marshalls, by matty m (never heard of it), its a silk dress, i LOVE how it fits and the pockets and it was only $19.99...do you think it looks ok? i'm always weirded out by this kind of neckline. i think i obviously need a different bra, as you can kinda see the top of the bra cups...hmm

3rd pic is stuff i got at banana- all on sale as well- socks (you can never have enough trouser socks- $3.99 each pair, and the pants were on sale for 14.99

i know its silly, but i just love a good sale :yahoo:

Great purchases! I too, am a young(er) teacher and I have trouble finding things for work. I have been looking and looking without much luck. I will have to try Marshall's :smile:

I know the brand Matty M is sold at Nordstrom's. I've bought a couple of their shirts and loved them. The dress looks great and I think you definitely got a deal!

That is my shopping thus far for the school year. I didn't buy with the intentions of school, but random good sales. This was bought and ordered between July and August. Lately I have the shopping bug for shoes. I can't wait to hear what everyone else bought.

- grey skinny pants
- tan pants (we can't wear jeans or logo T's to school :sad: )
- blue patterned short sleeved shirt
- hot pink tank top
- white button down
- Tshirt

Then Forever 21, and I got...
- plaid headband
- silver necklace
- grey high-waisted skirt

Plus I got a knit navy blue and red dress that I'll probably wear the first day of school! I need to go to the outlets soon and do some REAL school shopping :nuts:

I haven't gotten that much this summer...all I wear during school are sweats :lol: but I went to American Eagle earlier this summer with some b day money and got a few shirts and some jeans. I need new jewlery though, I'm such a jewlery fiend!!

BTW Candypants: I LOVE LOVE that silk dress!! Maybe wear it to our tPF meet on Saturday!! ;);) hahaha
