I Caught the Fashion Bug

Today I took Bookworm and Sassypants to a birthday party across town. Not wanting to drive all the way home, I decided to stick to that side of town. There's not much there, just the a strip mall with the usual stuff....Check For Cash, Sally's Beauty Supply, a laundry mat, a tobacco store, Dollar Tree, and Fashion Bug.

I walked in Sally's, and remembered I have 5,382 cans of hairspray at home. I didn't need to do any laundry, don't smoke, didn't need junk to fill gift guess where I headed? Fashion Bug! GASP! I didn't even know they were still around. I don't think I've ever even stepped foot in one. I looked at the clothes. YUCK. So I thought, when in doubt, go for the accessories.

Much to my surprise, Fashion Bug has some really cute jewelry pieces. Yeah, they have the usual cheapy, import pieces, but if you take the time to look around, you can find fabulous pieces super cheap. They're definitely not investment pieces, but who cares for those prices? The best part, "Buy One, Get One Half Off". Guess what I paid for 8 pieces...$78.00 (with tax). So this averaged less than $10 per piece! I've said "pieces" a lot haven't I? Maybe next time I'll say something like "pickle bottoms" or "pygmy" when I refer to jewelry "pieces".

So here's what I got:


  1. Pretty stuff!!! There is still a Fashion Bug in Cookeville...I have not been there in forever! Next time I am down there I am gonna check it out. Hope your having a great weekend! = )

  2. I love to dress very simple but then add a great peice of jewery ...I used to make mine, but have not done that in years. Wanted to welcome you to my blog. I look forward to getting to know you , so don't be a stranger.

  3. Oooh, I really like those cocktail rings!
