I ended up going on a third date! Yes, three! I found a deal through Social Shopper for a haunted house experience. I'd say it was worth what I paid for it, but I can't imagine paying full price for it. I won't be going back. My date loved it. But he also hasn't been to some of the more amazing haunted houses that the city offers.
For my casual haunted house attire I went with the above outfit. I love tunics. This tunic I got from Addition Elle last spring. It's nice and light. It actually has a slit in the back that give is a unique shape. Again, I wore my favourite military-esque sweater that was a thrift store find (it looks military-esque in real life, it just doesn't photograph that way). Jeggings and my little black boots completed the outfit.
I received an email yesterday telling me that Pennington's/Addition Elle was having a happy hour sale where you buy 2 and get 2 free off all regular priced merchandise. I have been meaning to head over there to check out their boot selection. It made perfect sense to do this during the sale.
Fortunately/unfortunately I work right next door to Addition Elle, so I just walked over after work. I tried on pretty much every pair of boots that they had. I didn't find any tall boots that I liked, but I fell in love with pretty much every pair of booties they had. I have a pair that I wear all the time, but are close to being at the end of their life. I chose the grey booties above as their replacement. It works out perfectly. This way I can take my old boots to England with me, and I don't have to worry about destroying them from all of the walking I will be doing or bringing them back if I go on a giant shopping spree.
The studded heels were a splurge. They just looks so good on my feet. They are actually slightly different than the ones pictured above, but that was the closest picture I could find. Hopefully I will be able to put them to use.
My two free items ended up being this sparkly tunic/sweater and this leopard print blouse. I am pretty happy with both items. I tried to pick expensive items to take advantage of sale properly, but I couldn't resist the blouse (which was $20 cheaper than the shoes). Oh well, I am happy with my purchases.
So much for my spending freeze.
