So if you’ve been paying close attention to my current obsessions, you know I’ve been heavily going steady with the Famous brand store.

No, I’m not sponsored by them….they don’t know I even exist actually, but it changes nothing about how I feel about this store. Like I said in prior posts, their pricing, in conjunction with their color coded deals, make for an overwhelmingly enjoyable shopping adventure.

I’ve legit found sooooo many ridiculously fab pieces, at some of the lowest prices around, and it seriously gives ya girl a THRILL!!!

For instance, look at this denim colored fringed dress, HUNNAAAAY. I saw it hidden between some other fringed items (which I’m sure you already know I also bought), and it was the first thing to scream out at me. At first glance it seemed as though it might not fit, especially because it barely went beyond and XL, but I persevered and kept my eyes peeled whilst canvasing the entire store for at minimum one more size up.

I couldn’t get it out of my head but after going through almost all of the racks, I just about gave up…..and then there it was, a XXL just waiting for me to make my move and buy her up (all for a whopping $7…you read right, $7).


If you’re coming to the blog and staying awhile to catch up, you’ll begin to see a pattern. I love a good deal, and I will hunt one to the end of the earth. I’m a FIRM believer on boujee on a budget. Most often, people are shocked to hear where I’ve acquired my pieces and for how much. Stick with me kid, and I’ll have you serving lewks AND still be able to pay bills, eat out, and keep a roof over your head….just to name a few.

I’ve also spoken at great length about my love of certain color combos, a warm toned brown (on the orange spectrum), paired with any and all blues? Très magnifique! So, I’m not gonna bore you with all of that….this time, **Laughs Out Loud**

The fringe on this dress is just f’ing eggzzzellent ** Mr. Burns voice **, it gives just the right amount of sass even though it’s incredibly casual. And to think, if I had been “too good” to bargain shop or had I given up on the hunt….I would’ve not come across such a piece. I’m tellin’ you, don’t ever sleep on ANY store, ANY venue, etc…

You never know what you’ll find.
