I got these two shoes from payless. I really needed new flats because my favorites are falling apart. I found these airwalks which are very comfortable and I liked the color and the pattern. The sale was that if you buy one pair you get another half off. I wanted the dexter shoes for a while now and when I saw them I had to have them. The total was about $40. Which is pretty good for 2 pairs of shoes. The books I found at Barnes and Noble and decided to check them out. I'm really happy I did because the 17 one shows you how to make outfits that are girly, edgy, boho, classic, glam and indie. It also have guides in the back. Altogether I find it very helpful and interesting and i can't wait to use it. The teen vogue book is a little different because instead of showing you outfits it shows an inside guide to a career in fashion. I'm not sure if I want to go into fashion as a career yet but it's still nice to see how the magazine is put together. If you like fashion books then I recommend you to get these.
