I was finally able to put my new swimsuit to use when I went to Carolina beach here in my home state, North Carolina; Its been ages since I've been to the beach, so I was ecstatic to go this past weekend! I purchased the swimsuit I'm wearing a few months ago on sale from American Apparel. Being from North Carolina, I wasn't introduced to American Apparel until I moved to New York and seen them scattered all over the city, but I quickly fell in love with the store. At first glance, American Apparel can be quite expensive to the average consumer. However, that's only because American Apparel and stores alike tend to place huge mark-ups on their merchandise. The key to buying from stores like these is to keep your eye out on sales. They will periodically place merchandise on sale when they only have certain sizes and colors left in their inventory. I got extremely lucky when I came across this orangish, one- piece swim suit in the sales section!
These pants are one of my many fabulous finds! I found these dope pair of pants at my local Goodwill for $3. I love, love, love the print! There's nothing really special about the sandals I'm wearing, just regular old sandals I've had for ages. I don't remember the price I paid for them, but knowing me they couldn't have been no more the 10 bucks.
