Shop till you drop
Last night three brave girls went to another Shecky's Girls Night for cocktails, shopping and yes, a free goodie bag (which was even better this time). Despite their efforts to keep their wallets shut and credit cards unswiped they failed miserably. Here are their purchase adventures.

Was all about the circles and purchased gold cascading circular earrings from Lola Bean and an almost matching necklace from a vendor named Circa 610. Take a look:

Had the most willpower of all three shoppers and despite liking several necklaces and earings that her friends declared looked gorgeous she would willfully put them back down and move on to the next vendor. She finally purchased a shirt on sale by Candid Couture, which reads "I Have Misplaced My Crown" (Tara bought a shirt from them last time with a heart on it that reads "You Break It You Buy It"). Shirley's big purchase came just as the trio were leaving when she returned to the first booth that she had visited, Fashion Doll Accessories to buy a fun fabric purse with big circular plastic handles perfect for the beach. What do you think?

Bought a pair of blue jean capris by James Jeans Cured by Seun, which retail for $170 and were purchased for only $60, thus Tara figured this wasn't really a purchase--it was a steal. They also have fun stitching on the butt and look pretty fine on.

Then she tried on two different pairs of earrings by MLevinson and because she couldn't decide which looked best and her friends were just as indecisive she bought both, but only $25 each compared to the fifty and change ones at all the other vendors. Tara blames the fact that she had a small bottle of red from Little Black Dress Wines making her sillier than the other girls and more loose with the purse strings. These are the earings.

Oh and every shopper received a large bottle of Dove Energy Glow, which all were delighted to try.

You are dangerous when you are shopping.

How did you know that long earrings on women are my weakness?

I had an amazing time! I love my new jewelry and I can't wait to use my new little jewelry stand. She's so cute!

Those earrings are FABU on you! I'm so glad you got both.

How cute is that photo of Shirley with the sign "Hip Chic" in the background? Did you plan that?
