HAUL | The Lab of Costa Mesa

HAUL | The Lab of Costa Mesa 

If you live in Southern California, you would have to agree that today was a beautiful sunny Saturday. It was the type of Saturday where you wish you could spend it at brunch with your best friends sipping mimosas and giggling about latest gossips and cute guys. Unfortunately, for me, in the United States, the drinking age is 21, and I still have a year before I can legally spend these types of Saturdays. So I did the next best thing, I went shopping! I'm really happy with the things I bought, and even more excited for the great deals I got!

These first three pieces are from a brand called "Velvet Heart"-I got each thing for $10 from a lady who runs the product development firm that creates these clothes for buyers. She basically brings all the left over show room samples to Buffalo Exchange & makes some side money for clothes she otherwise would have just had sitting gathering dust or donated. Being a smart business women, she told me that before she went into Buffalo Exchange, I could take a look at her rack of clothes and pick whatever I'd like for $10 a piece as apose to the say $20-25 Buffalo Exchange would have sold it for! How sick is that? Plus the clothes were actually cute. She made money, I got a good deal, everyone's happy!

Of course, since I was already at The Lab of Costa Mesa, aka "The Anti-Mall" of Orange County, I had to at least go into Urban Outfitters! How could I not? And you want to know what was cool about this decision? I got all of the above for under $15! I don't know why I was so lucky, but I really got a great deal today! On all this stuff! Don't believe me? Check out the next few pictures and be mind blown like I was!

 Yes, you're reading that right, it does say "$4.99" and yes, you're right, that's fucking amazing.

 Okay, so this ones a bit lame... yes it was originally priced for "$9.99" and yes they marked it on sale for "$9.99" and yes I still got it despite the lame-ity of it all, because disregard the false sale, ten bucks for mint jeans are a great deal in my book, when else would I be bold enough to buy colored jeans?

& in case you were wondering why I had cool temporary tattoos in the picture, its because it was actually a 10% off coupon that the manager there gave me for free because she's pretty awesome.

code for online shopping is: WACKSLACKS
