Okay, so a few weeks ago the sweetest thing happened.  Amber Lena at Fashion Bargain Shopper Extraordinaire sent me an outfit just because.  I couldn't believe it!  How nice is that?!  I had been eyeing her outfits for a while now and left a comment that I thought one was cute.  I didn't even look to see if it was my size (since I'm on my shopping fast).  Amber Lena contacted me and said it wouldn't be "shopping" if she gave it to me.  Amber Lena, you really made my month.  And I'm so thankful!

The first outfit is the one Amber Lena put together, and the other two were just ways I decided to mix and match the pieces.  The polka dot shirt is so much fun!  And the red pants fit perfect.  I mean, someone hemmed them and they were exactly my size.

It's so rare that something really nice happens, especially from someone you've never even met in person!  I have to say the blogging community is amazing and I'm really appreciative of how supportive everyone is of each other. 

Definitely check out Fashion Bargain Shopper Extraordinaire!  She's got cute outfits (that she's either thrifted or owned) in all different sizes and for as little as $10!!!  Thanks again, Amber Lena!

p.s. I did a guest post here about married life on Ashley's blog After Nine to Five.  Check it out if you get a chance!

I barely started blogging more than a month ago and have already met so many kind people.

It's lovely how internet and websites connect people from all over the world. :)

Those red pants are fabulous. Mine are no longer the right size and it's killing me slowly! That's incredible that she sent the clothes your way (but I agree, it totally doesn't count as shopping). Enjoy it! (:

I love those first red trousers!! They're so flattering and so fun. I've been keeping my eyes peeled for comething similar, but I've been striking out. There were some like those at Zara a while back and I hesitated and missed them!!
