I’m not a mall girl – I haven’t shopped in a mall-mall since high school. In fact, malls give me anxiety. The people, the crowds … its all too much for me to handle. However since I’ve been on the Westfield Mall Style Tour with Style For Hire, being in a mall 12 hours a day is sort of a requirement.
A large part of my job is shopping/pulling clothes in the various stores in the mall. This job requirement has proven to be very dangerous. Why? I’m buying stuff for myself. Oops. What??? There are some serious deals out there!! Here are some of the items that have found their way into my suitcase during the tour.
PS- I still have four more weeks of the tour, which means four more weeks to buy crap at the mall. Pray for me.
The Store: Coca Nico
The Product: Sugar skull bracelet
The Price: $39.95
The Result: Wonderful. I just added it to my daily arm entourage.
The Store: Gap
The Product: Striped mohair sweater — I got the neon yellow and black version
The Price: $49.95
The Result: Fantastical! It’s a bit itchy so it requires a shirt underneath but its SO very awesome.
The Store: Forever 21
The Product: Nirvana tee shirt
The Price: $16.95
The Result: Musically I am stuck in the 90s and I’m okay with that. This shirt was so necessary. Plus, didn’t Nevermind just have its 20 year anniversary. See? Necessary.
The Store: New York & Company
The Product: Black cape
The Price: $79.00

The Store: Jujubee
