I try whenever possible to give credit where credit is due. That said, nearly all of today's purchases were at least partially inspired by other blogs. They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and I hope it is. As much as I like the idea of 'original' style, the truth is I am very inspired my other people's styles, especially those who share their fabulous and fantastic sense of style with the world through their blogs.

musingsonmtn back in September. I was anxiously waiting for the shirt to go on sale as $78 is a lot of money -- even with promos. But I was able to buy mine for $30 today.
While at J. Crew, I noticed that there were bubble earrings available in the colors that were recently on sale online: the white and the sweet tangerine (looks like modern red). Although the store had them marked for $45, they honored the recent online sale price plus discounts. So my price for the two pairs came to $38! Although I LOVE bubble necklaces, these are my first (two) bubble earrings. I really liked them in green on colorfulcorporate and for the sale price, it was hard to pass up. I am loving how they look, especially with my hair up.
Lastly, I made it to GAP where an extra 30-off sale is going on. I went there specifically to pick up the polka dot blouse (I ended up getting it in pink) for $23 and I was so surprised to see the red plaid skinny jeans already on sale (plus 30 off), which ended up costing $38 (down from $70). Not sure yet if I will keep them but it seems there aren't many pairs left in stores.
