What I Wore Wednesday: The Valentine Edition


I'm still high on love this month. Even though I've fallen pitifully behind on my Joy of Love assignments. There are still, what, 12 more days in February? Still plenty of assignments left to photograph. I'm going to squeeze out every last ounce of the pink, the red, the frills and the ruffles.

We had our special family Valentine's celebration. It was fantabulous. If I can get my act together (aka... finish project extra tunics) I'll post about it soon. But I know some of you are wondering if I caved and bought that super sweet Bronco for BSD.

Wellllll....let's just say that BSD received this on Valentine's Day instead...
 Betsey Johnson nightie - TJMaxx (Originally $82. $10 on clearance!)
Shoes - TJMaxx (beautiful Italian leather. $15 on clearance!)
You can't walk out of Victoria's Secret with a pair of undies for the price I paid for both!

Was BSD disappointed? I don't think so. 

But...I did get a call on my cell phone from "Doug" telling me he knows I want his vintage Bronco. That he'd love to let me take it for a test drive. And...he's willing to 'entertain an offer.' Said he'll 'give me a good deal on it.' 

I wonder if Doug reads my blog. And if this picture is enough 'entertainment' to give me a realllly good deal. Stay tuned.

Check out what others wore last week here at the Pleated Poppy.

That's just the kind of outfit my hubby loves!

Kristin said...

Oh la la! This is exactly why I love reading your blog....I never know what to expect! You go girl, and I bet BSD didn't mind having that Bronco at all when he saw you in this. And, BTW, I'm heading out to TJMaxx ASAP! Woot Woot!

I'm feeling super pregnant.

My man got no such present...he'll survive.

haha...very very cute! Love the Valentines Day outfit! You are so funny! A friend of ours in Hampton has a Bronco almost identical to the one you have shown here. It is a really cool ride. My husband has admired it for years. Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

You're hilarious! Love that you posted your Valentine's "present" to your BSD. I don't have the courage. And I just went the easy route and hit VS - you're right - way more expensive than the Maxx. Should have thought of that!

And how funny is the Bronco guy calling you. Either he reads or has inside sources that do. Good for you. I got a room upgrade in Chicago once for writing a blog post. Hopefully you'll get a bargain out of this!

Pam said...

Why would he need the Bronco now?

Kristi said...

Awesome!! This is so great, I love it.

Thanks for the info on ten on ten, I think I'll be joining in on the fun in March!

erin said...

Nice, my man wasn't even here. Boo. This is giving me some welcome home ideas. ;-)

Also, I love that vintage Bronco. LOVE IT!

Dani said...

Oh, yeah.

My man didn't even get shaved legs. Or anything else for that matter. Poor him.

Whatevs. It was Monday. And I had taught kinder all day.

Jen said...

What an awesome deal! I love good deals...especially when you save LOTS!

Kristin said...

I miss you!

Jen said...

Fabulous....and I'm thinking "Doug" will definately give you the deal you are looking for!
Sooo funny!
