While my car was parked in the lower level of the Downtown Plaza earlier this month, the vehicle a few spaces down caught fire. The area filled with acrid smoke and I wasn’t allowed to return to my car until it cleared. Since I had finished my business in the area, I had nothing left to do but shop Forever 21.
1. Floral chambray shirt, $24.80.
I ended up on the Seychelles site during a search for a high-heeled, non-wedge, saltwater-style sandal. I found my shoe and two other pairs.
2. On the Floor in Melon, $95.00.
3. Just an Illusion in Teal and Yellow, $75.99.
4. Strike a Chord in Off White and Black, $90.00
I can't really explain the odd time of day for my purchases. All I can say is I'm a very light sleeper and playing with my phone helps me fall back asleep after I'm inevitably woken up each night. The shoe shopping probably wasn't the most soporific activity; I was a little high after spending that much money on shoes at once.
5. Capsule by Cara earrings, $7.48.
May total: $293.27
