The Goods

You asked, I'll show. Despite the poor quality of these Blackberry shots, I think you can see Polkanomics in action.

BCBG Cocktail Dress - Retail $235/PD&PB Paid $22
With a gorgeous chocolate hue, bubble hem and detailing on the bodice, I think this is the perfect dressy/casual frock.
Trina Turk dress - Retail $302/PD&PB Paid $31
I love the fit of this dress - hour glass to the max. This picture is so blurry, but trust me when I say this is impractically fun at its finest.Nine West bag - Retail $120/PD&PB Paid $50
This is the ultimate year-round bag. A stunning heather gray color, crocodile print, structured large shape and removable padded laptop case. I'll be using this bag for years.Lotus Lace Tiered Dress - Retail $116/PD&PB Paid $29
Can you picture a more feminine confection? Soft pink colored, cinched waist and tiers of pretty lace. I'm in heaven, and I can't wait to wear this!Lotus white draped embellished tunic - Retail $116/PD&PB Paid $29
My style fluctuates between feminine prep and feminine hipster (in a really diluted type of way). This tunic is the perfect piece for my wardrobe. A little edgy and different but still flowy and girly. I'm wearing this tomorrow with skinny jeans and flats, but I can't wait to take it into the fall with leggings and boots.

Are you blinded by trying to discern the cute-factor in the middle of all the photo fuzziness? When I get a chance to don these lovely finds, I'll make sure to post more clear pictures. For my NC friends, the first two dresses were found at JT Posh, the bag from the Nine West store in SouthPark, and the final two from Lotus on East Blvd.

In more good news, our volleyball team won our league championship last night! We entered the tournament as the last seed and swept the competition to dominate. Holla!

And to make things even sweeter, COLLEGE FOOTBALL STARTS TONIGHT!!!! Not only is it finalllllly college football season, it kicks off with my NC State Wolfpack kicking tail against the USC Gamecocks (despite the beating, though, USCEmily will be looking precious). I can't wait until 7!

And one final note, although I secretly loathe myself for doing so, I've joined Twitter. If you want to read what I have to say in 140 characters or less, you can find me here.

I did look precious- And my girlfriends all LOVED the dress! I forgot to take a picture, though- boo to me!
I think my cute attire sparked our victory. Although I wouldn't call it a beat down any way you look at it.
Clearly both of our teams need an offensive spark. 10 total points scored?!? REALLY, GUYS!?!
