Up the Creek
So, remember back in this post when I said you shouldn’t be afraid to shop in unexpected places? Well, this weekend I pretty much took that advice to the extreme. The extreme of extremes. WAY out there. Further than I ever thought I would take it. I’m just going to spit it out…IboughtanecklacefromColdwaterCreek. Yeah. I bought a necklace from Coldwater Creek.
For those of you who don’t know…. Coldwater Creek is basically the go-to for mom jeans, kindergarten teacher’s embroidered sweater vests, and weird Paris-themed collage t-shirts (someone tell me you know what I’m talking about). However, this past weekend my Grandma wanted me to exchange some items for her in a store near campus. I was actually surprised. There were some wearable things in there. I fell in love with a necklace, which was 50% off so I had to buy it:
Cute right? It sorta reminded me of this necklace that J, from J’s Everyday Fashion, wears pretty often
Anyway, the lesson is: don’t be afraid to shop at a particular store because of what you think they sell–you might miss out on some great stuff!
And just to prove it: a couple outfits featuring a few things I love from Coldwater Creek (yep, I love stuff from Coldwater Creek….I’ll never get tired of saying that).
