  1. too cute! have a merry xmas…we’re saving money $$$$$$$$$$$$ in 2013 too!


    • Thanks! We read an article about this woman who did a spending fast (and later a spending diet). Each of us is taking that concept and tailoring it to our saving/debt reducing goals. I’m sure we’ll be posting about it.


  2. I love that dress! Very classic and retro- what was the name of the store you got it from? Also, re your spending fast- don’t know if you all follow Michelle Singletary, The Washington Post’s personal finance columnist, but her columns are an excellent resource on saving, paying down debt, etc. No personal connection to her- just a huge fan of her insights that have helped me achieve some of my financial objectives.


    • The name of the store is lost in drawers vintage. We did a feature on them a few days ago and their info is in the blog post. The owners are incredible people who pay incredible attention to details. I was so happy to get this dress for my roomie b/c I knew she loved it. Please check them out. Their prices are reasonable and there are SO many cute things in their shop right now. Thanks for the finance resources! I’m looking forward to spending more and saving less. These resources will help.


  3. Awwww Markiesha (sp) you’re gonna look amazing in that…and I’m joining in with Project Save!!!! But I do need a few new pairs of pants due to my weight loss!!!!!


  4. We’ve said it once and will say it again! Our checks burst with excitement! I know without a doubt that you will rock that dress like no other! We thank you always, for your sweetness and support, ladies! Can not wait to see you both in great frocks this new year!
