Dollop of Daisies

Jacket: DKNY
Dress: Lilly Pulitzer
Shoes: Kate Spade
Headband: BCBG Max Azria
Bracelet: Forever 21

Alright so I'm still trying to wear all of my summer dresses before it's too cold. This is one of the several dresses that I still have left that is really only appropriate for the summertime. But, here I am wearing it anyway.

To make my outfit a little more classroom appropriate, I paired this bright dress with my favorite jean jacket and some sparkly sandals. What do you guys think?

Get your fake Keds on

Shirt: J.Crew
Skirt: Old Navy
Necklace: Nordstrom Rack
Shoes: Target
Belt: from Target dress

Okay so I'm not wearing a dress today. Shoot me.

But seriously, I can only wear so many dresses in a week and a half! This skirt has been getting a lot of wear this summer, however I had yet to wear it with this soft striped shirt like I had been wanting to. Today I finally took advantage of the cooler weather, and decided to wear the combination of two of my favorite wardrobe staples together.

Overall, it's not my favorite look, but it's still pretty cute. Super preppy and feminine, just like me!

P.S- In case you couldn't tell, I'm really into my fake Keds this week. :-) Pin It

Just another dress

Cardigan: Lilly Pulitzer
Dress: Miss Sixty
Shoes: Target
Necklace: Lilly Pulitzer
Headband: BCBG Max Azria

Just another average day at school, wearing one of the many dresses that I own in attempts to wear all of my dresses while it is still warm enough out. It appears that Hurricane Irene made for much cooler temperatures, which hot, humid, and sticky Maryland truly appreciates. However, my thoughts and prayers go out to those who were seriously affected by the storm. Thankfully, in Frederick, Md and Sterling, Va (where I spent most of the weekend), there was no flooding, damages, or other losses.

So it's the second week of classes, and I am still into looking cute and presentable! My friends and I were talking about at dinner today after the first week of classes most people stop caring about what they wear, but rest assured: I am absolutely NAWT one of those kind of people!

Today I decided on this super cute strapless dress from Miss Sixty that I absolutely love! When I first tried it on, I wasn't really into it, but my mom convinced me otherwise. Moms are pretty good at that, I think.

I paired it with a coral colored cardigan (because I don't really approve of baring shoulders in class), knock-off keds, a metallic red headband, and a simple gold necklace. Overall, I really love this look. Although I think I kind of look like a nurse or something from the 50s, I don't care at all. It's the shape of the dress, I think. Just the cut, and how the fabric swings reminds me of other times. But, whatever. Pin It

A week in photos

It's time for another week in photos! Here's the round-up:

Omg Yogi Castle is my new obsession. You pick any flavor of soft serve (which tastes more like ice cream, I swear), and then you can pick as many delicious toppings as you like! I chose red velvet with white chocolate chips - yum! The cashier then weighs your soft serve, and you pay by the ounce - 45 cents per ounce. A super affordable and delicious treat!!

What a flashback, right? I saw these while I was in Lake Placid, and I just had to get some! So good. Oh and this is with the vanilla icing. NOM.

This is a math clock. This would confuse me every single day. But still super cool!

This is my roommate, Casey, cowering because she didn't want her picture taken. Well, she was being a bitch and deserved it. So I am happily plastering it all over the internetz!

Cute As a Button

I like to start every school year feeling polished and super pretty. I mean, how often do I have time to exfoliate, do my nails AND toenails, and play with face masks once the school year kicks into full swing? Let me tell you - it's almost never. So of course with my first day of classes on Monday, I knew I had to do something with my nails to feel my very best.

This time, I tried Essie's "Cute As a Button," which I truly love! The shade is absolutely perfect for the summer and the spring, and stands out so nicely on my pale skin. Unfortunately, my camera did not capture the shade as well as I wanted it too. I mean, if you look in the bottle and then you look at my nails, it's like you're not even looking at the same color (especially in the first photo)! Honestly, the color is much more like the stuff in the bottle. My camera is just dumb. Anyway, I love this color regardless, and am going to be using it a lot this school year!

Primary Colors

Dress: Suzy Chin for Maggie Boutique
Cardigan: Calvin Klein
Belt: Cole Haan
Shoes: BCBGeneration
Necklace: Nordstrom Rack

Another day, another dress. This time, I chose this navy blue and white polka dotted strapless dress I bought at Macy*s a couple of months ago. Although this was not how I intended to initially wear it, I'm still happy with how this outfit turned out - even though it's just all the primary colors combined.

On other note - not the best dress to wear when there are scattered thunderstorms throughout the day. Live and learn, I guess.

Super Prep!

Dress: Lilly Pulitzer
Cardigan: Lilly Pulitzer
Belt: Juicy Couture
Shoes: Coach
Earrings: Charter Club

Happy hump day everyone - we're half way through the week! Actually, because I don't have classes on Friday this semester (for about the fifth semester in a row, I might add), I guess yesterday would have been my hump day. But this is all besides the point.

Anyway, in getting dressed these next couple of weeks, I have determined that I want to wear all the dresses I brought with me to school before it becomes too cool. Now, in case you didn't know, I have a lot of dresses. A LOT. So, it may not happen. But I will do my best.

I got this dress in particular from the Lilly Pulitzer warehouse sale that I went to in early June this summer. And let me just tell you - I was so so happy when I found it. When I went to the sale, I had no idea what to expect. Would it be forgotten pieces from seasons pasts? Would it just be plain junk? I didn't know. So when I saw this dress from the spring line, I was so happy. It had been one of the prints that I had really liked, and the cut of the dress was perfect. 

To keep up the super prep matchy-matchy look, I paired this bright dress with my favorite cardigan, an aqua blue belt, aqua colored shoes, and big pearls. Doesn't this outfit just scream prep?

What to wear in the event of an earthquake

Dress: Juicy Couture
Jacket: DKNY
Earrings: American Eagle
Bracelets: Delia*s Warehouse Sale
Shoes: Steve Madden Luxe
Belt: stolen from mom

So I am sure you have always wondered - what should I wear in the event of an earthquake? And believe me, I have too. Living in Maryland for most of my life has always left me wondering, so today I was happy to find that I was wearing the perfect outfit for the occasion.

All kidding aside, I really love this outfit. Although super simple, I love how all the different colors and patterns complement each other so well. I started off with this cherry tomato red silk dress from Juicy, which feels so nice over my skin. Side note - can you believe this is Juicy? It's not made of terry cloth or velour, so when I saw the signature light pink and brown tag on the inside, I must say I was shocked. Anyway, to keep my arms warm on this surprisingly cool August day I paired the dress with my trusty denim jacket - my biggest essential in the fall. Finally, I added a fun leopard belt, some gold and aqua earrings, and a couple of noisy gold bangles for a fun pop.

What do you guys think? Did you even feel the earthquake?

(Last) First Day of School

Dress: Kate Spade
Shoes: Coach
Earrings: Charter Club
Necklace: Vintage

Today was my last first day of school ever. And may I just say on behalf of the senior class: where did the time go?! And holy shit.

It seems like just a couple of months ago we were moving stuff into the dorms and leaving our homes for the first time. Now, we're seasoned pros. I'm excited to embark on the adventure that will be senior year, but I am sad to see how quickly the time as gone. Time really flies SO fast!

At my school, the first day of school is always started with convocation; a ceremony that officially welcomes the new freshman class and the upperclassmen back to school for a new academic year. It's an occasion that most people go out of there way to wear something a little dressier than usual, so of course I wanted to play dress up to.

When I bought this Kate Spade dress a couple of months ago off the sale rack at Saks while I was at the King of Prussia Mall, I had known that I wanted to wear it to convocation. I loved the colors, the fit, and the huge bow in the front - it has such a vintage style to it. So, it sadly hung with all my other summer dresses until today when I finally got to wear it. I paired it with comfy flats so I wouldn't sink into the grass, and some fun accessories. It was the perfect way to start off my senior year. 

Although I took over 50 pictures at convocation, I didn't want to overwhelm you guys so I only provided two. I hope you enjoy!

Some of my friends with our robes, senior class pins, and dinks. At freshman year, students are "dinked" with a beanie in their class color that they wear every year for convocation. Thankfully, my class color is also one of our school colors!

Everyone magically has clothing on!

A week in photos

Because of vacation this week, I have lots of photos to share from my iPhone. For all the times when I was too lazy to bring my DSLR to dinner or other quick trips, my iPhone was there to capture the memories. I hope you guys enjoy!

A double rainbow? #WINNING. Hoping this brings me good luck for a long time! 

As we walked downtown one afternoon, I suddenly became very famished! I was on a mission to buy the first edible thing I saw,and this was it! Oh my goodness was it tasty! A combination of walnuts, almonds, and pecans covered in maple syrup?! MMMM.

The third day we went out to lunch, we stopped at Lisa G's, which was delicious! I had an open faced steak sandwich with spinach, which was SO good! Anyway, as we walked out toward our table, I was so surprised by the view! In Maryland, you would never just walk out to something like this at a restaurant.

Lake Placid, NY. was the host of the 1932 and the 1980 winter Olympics. So seeing as my family loves being tourists, we had to make a stop at the Herb Brooks ice rink where the "Miracle on Ice," took place during the 1980 winter Olympics. So cool! (Literally, no pun intended.)

Yum! Delicious tomato basil soup! It could have used a grilled cheese, but still good.

All my cards that I won in Apples to Apples last night. I thought I won some pretty good cards!

Woodbury Commons and Short Hills Mall Haul

So while I was on vacation this past week, I had the time to do a little bit of shopping and catch some really great deals. I'm so excited about all my new pieces, and I can't wait to wear them once school starts in three days (AHH)!

P.S - Please enjoy me awkwardly being unable to turn off the camera at the end. Also, the fact that I don't know how to edit, so I have to do it all in one shoot :-)

Shopping Downtown

Shirt: Ralph Lauren
Skirt: Theory
Belt: Gap
Bag: Coach (vintage)
Necklace: Nordstrom Rack
On the fourth day of vacation, my family and I attempted to go on a nature walk. There was a two mile trail to get us to the actual hike, however after walking about a mile and a half, we ended up at a swamp. We concluded that there was no way we were going across the swamp (adventurers, we are not) and that was the end of our walk, and the end of me wearing gross clothes. 

That afternoon, we decided to take a relaxing walk downtown to check out the shops, and get ice cream of course! Emma's, where we stopped, specialized in unique flavors of soft serve. I settled with the black raspberry after trying, and enjoyed every bit! This preppy ensemble was the perfect thing to wear while exploring the sites of downtown Lake Placid.

Saranac Lake

Sweater: Lilly Pulitzer
Skirt: Old Navy
Shoes: Target
Bag: Coach (vintage)
Necklace: Nordstrom Rack
The third day of our vacation was spent doing sightseeing at Saranac Lake, a small town just 10 miles from where we were staying in Lake Placid. With lots of antique shops, great restaurants, and of course the name sake lake in the center of town, it was a really fun place to take a mini day trip.

I had packed this outfit knowing that I wanted to wear it together, but was afraid how the outfit would come out looking. Would the aqua blue and coral be way too bright of a color combination? Thankfully, I don't think it did! Bright blue and coral have been some of my favorite colors to wear this summer, (as if you didn't know that with my weekly nail posts) so it was only a matter of time before I ended up wearing them together.

I paired them with my knock-off Keds that I have been wearing all week, a long strand of pearls, and my favorite old lady/mommy bag. Together, I think it makes for a winning look to wear while on vacation in the Adirondacks. Pin It

Hyde Park, NY

Shirt: Old Navy
Pants: Lilly Pulitzer
Shoes: BCBG Max Azria
Scarf: Lilly Pulitzer
Belt: Gap
Bag: Coach (vintage)

I'm finally back from my week long vacation (which I SO needed)! Have you missed me? I know that you guys were probably just dying without me. I hope my scheduled posts got you through my absence!

This is what I wore on the second day of vacation when we drove from Poughkeepsie, NY. to Lake Placid, NY. As we were in no hurry on our trip, we made lots of stops along the way - including the Vanderbilt Mansion located in Hyde Park where I took the above photo.

For as simple as this outfit is, (I mean, who couldn't put together jeans, a t-shirt, and a scarf) I really love how it turned out! All the jewel tones really pop out against a crisp pair of super dark skinny jeans. It was the perfect outfit to wear on a cool day while sightseeing in New York.

What I Wish You Knew...

After reading this thread on Reddit about what one Subway employee wished her customers knew, I knew I had to write my own version. However, seeing as I do not work at Subway, I am writing mine about what I wish all my 'guests' knew. Btw - I work at big box store that would probably consider Walmart its biggest rival...I also wear red and khaki everyday...does this give you a good idea where I work? I'm not going to say it outright in this post. :)

Important to note- I work primarily at guest service and on the front lanes cashiering. Therefore, these are the things I wish people knew when they checked out and returned items.

-If you have children, do NOT let them sit at the end of my lane. I know they are now out of your way, but they are in my way. I need to put your bags here.
-Also on the note of children, keep your eye on them. I know it can be hard if you have a bunch of little ones, but I hate it when I see one of them playing in an open lane with the computer. Someone may be called at anytime to work on that lane, and your child will be in someones way.
-When I have rang up all your items, have your card ready (or whatever your form of payment may be). This is not the appropriate time to now start digging in your purse for your wallet. Reasons like this is why lines grow so long - be prepared.
-When returning something, have your receipt ready (or the card you used to purchase your items). This causes the same situation as my point above - long lines.
-Just because there is a red clearance sticker on something does not make it on clearance. Unfortunately, people peel off these stickers all of the time, and try to pass them off as something else. Whenever I see one of these, I always type in the item code. Frequently, what happens is that I will type in the item code and the clearance code and they don't match. Check prices on the scanners throughout the store.
-It is NOT my fault that things aren't in the right place in the store. I do not go around trying to mess things up, and putting things clearance bins when they are not on clearance. If I had it my way, everything in the store would be in the right place. But that's never going to be the case. While all the sales floor team can try and pick up what isn't in the right place, it is often the customer who puts things in a place where it doesn't belong. I cannot adjust the price for this situation.
-If I am standing in front of a lane, wearing a red top, khaki bottoms, a name tag, and have my light on, do not ask me if I am open. Of course I am! Why else would I be standing in front of my lane wearing a work uniform if I wasn't? For fun? No.
-On the other hand, if I am cashiering, and my light is off, I am closed. I may have to go on a break, clean a bathroom, or help out at guest service. Do not get in my lane when my light is off - I will see you. Do not think you have somehow snuck in line - you didn't. If you do ask if I am closed, and I noticed you have one or two items and we are extremely busy, I will most likely check you out. If you are polite. Otherwise, don't bother, and don't be rude.
-Don't get mad about our 90 day return policy. In fact, it's pretty generous. The reason we can't take back items that are more than 90 days old is because they can't go back on our shelf - so we make no profit once you return your item.
-If you don't have your receipt or the card you paid with, you may get back less then you originally spent. This is because the item may have been on sale at some point, and we have no idea how much you paid for it (whenever you bought it). Even if you have a sticker that says full price, we have no guarantee that's what you paid for it. Don't get mad, that's our policy. And no, I can't change it, even if it may seem unfair to you.
-I know you want to teach your children the value of a dollar, but in my check out lane is not the place to do it. What am I supposed to do with 39 dollars in change (and yes, someone really gave me that much in assorted change)? Have your children give you the money before hand, and pay with your card in line. It takes WAY to long for children to count out their change.
-Coupons. Oh coupons. I could go on for HOURS about how people abuse them. Honestly, I love coupons! They are a great way to save money, and I use them all the time (I saved $82 fairly on my last trip).However, do not, do not, abuse them! I will notice, you will piss me off, and I will not let you get away with it. Our company policy is one manufacturer, and one store coupon per item. Do not try to sneak in more than two per item, I will not let you use it. Do not try and use expired coupons. They are expired - throw them in the trash. Do not use coupons for really expensive items, only to return the items and get your full money back - that's cheating. Do not get a gift receipt to return these items either, that way I don't know you used coupons. I know. We don't take crazy coupons - if it sounds too good to be true, it is. For example, $20 dollars off $40 dollar purchase - no. That would never happen.
-If you don't want something when you are checking out, let me know. I have a bin under my register especially for items of this nature. Do not leave your unwanted sunscreen by the sodas on the end caps, or with the on-sale t-shirts. Just give it to me. I will have someone put it away.
-PLEASE do not complain about how my belt is too dirty to put you clothes on. It really is not dirty at all, since I usually clean it a couple of times a day. Sometimes, people do put cold food on the belt, which tends to sweat on the belt. Honestly though, it's not that dirty, and even if it was - it's really not my fault. So don't yell.
-Do not put you basket on the belt and expect me to unload the entire thing. Would you ever just pick up your cart and put it on the belt without unloading it? No. So treat things in the basket the same way. If you do this, I will dump everything out and ask you to put away the basket. So don't do that.
-On the note of baskets and carts, never just leave them stranded in the middle of the aisle - they will be in someone elses way. If you don't know where something goes, ask. For future reference though, baskets go on the floor in the front of the lanes, and carts go by the doors.
-If you leave your cart stranded for quite some time and don't tell someone that you just ran to the bathroom, don't be surprised if we put everything in your cart back. How were we supposed to know?
-Do not just leave your cart in my lane when you realize that you forgot something on the other end of the store while I'm not looking. How am I supposed to know what to do with your stuff?
-I know this sounds obvious, but make sure you have your wallet when you check out (and your license if you plan on paying with a check)! It makes me SO angry when someone says, "oh, I left my wallet in my car, brb. Can you watch my stuff?" I mean sure, but don't try and cut in my line once you come back and realize I have a line.
-PLEASE take your hangers off before I ring up your clothing. When ringing up large orders of clothing (like right around back to school time), it takes a ridiculous amount of time to take all of your hangers off. So please, help me out here so I can check you out quicker.
-If you realize I made a mistake after you checked out (something rang up the incorrect price, i missed a coupon, something double scanned, etc), do not just hover at the end of my register and expect me to fix it while I have already moved on to more customers. If I don't have a line, I have no problem fixing it immediately.  Otherwise, take it to guest service, where the lines are usually much shorter.
-Please don't return food that hasn't expired just because you didn't eat it. When we return these items, we have to throw almost everything away. Just donate them to a church, or a local food bank or something. I hate having to throw away uneaten food.
-If you aren't going to buy food from the cold section, don't take it out. If you come out to the check out lane and decide you don't want the ice cream, spinach or strawberries, we have to throw it out because we don't know how long it has been outside of the cold area. So please make sure you definitely want to buy the item before bringing it up to the front.
-If you are returning something you brought online, make sure you have the card you paid with on hand. What you receive in the box in a release statement, not a receipt, which we can't use to look up your purchase. Although we can look up you receipt using the kiosks in the store, it is much easier if we can use the card you paid with.
-If you are buying a gift, get a gift receipt! A lot of people end up returning gifts (probably more than you think), and it is unfortunate for them that they are often unable to get the full value of the price back because we have to use their license to do the return.
-If you are buying something for a baby or wedding registry, don't forget to have the cashier scan the registry paper when you check out. That way, the item is removed from the registry, and an automatic gift receipt is printed. If you don't the guest may end up with more than what they asked for, and they may be unable to return/ get full refund.
-Are you dubious about a price that you saw? Take a picture of where you saw the sign. I have seen more people doing this, and it is very helpful for me to see that either what they grabbed was in the wrong place, the sign was expired, or whatever. This is much easier than me running around the store trying to figure out why the price didn't come up correctly.
-Do not hover over other people when they are checking out. Way too many people do this and it is extremely rude. So for example, if you see someone at the end of the lane putting bags in their cart, do not put your cart right behind theirs so they cannot go back to the card reader. Almost no one pays until the end, so you will be in the way.
-Do not give me change after I have put in the money you already gave me. I am no good at math, and usually cannot figure out how much you need back after you give me more money. Don't do this unless you know how much you need back.
-Opening a card with our store is a GREAT idea (and I'm not just saying it because I work there). Now in my opinion, I would not open the credit card. It has quite a bit of interest, and is just one more card for you to keep track of. However, I would highly recommend opening a debit card with our store. The money comes directly out of your checking account, you save five percent every single time you shop, and you get all the same benefits of having the store credit card. To sign up, just bring a blank check, and ask a cashier or guest service worker to help you out.
-I don't do returns in the check out lanes. Please go to the service desk.

This is just about EVERYTHING I can think of. Overtime, I am sure I will probably think of more, and will add them here. I hope this makes you a more informed shopper :) Pin It

A week in photos

Here's my weekly wrap up in iPhone photos - enjoy!

 When I am at a gift shop, I will buy ANYTHING with my name on. Usually this is never a problem, because my name isn't popular, and who would want a key chain with one of the biggest natural disasters name on it? No one. As you can see none of these key chains had my name. TYPICAL.

After the pathetic Pirates game on Saturday night, there were some really spectacular fireworks that came with the Train concert. This is almost NOTHING what they looked like. They were absolutely beautiful...this kind of just looks like it is the revolutionary war.

This basically puppy chow, just mass produced. Number 1. I didn't know you could buy this stuff pre-made! Number 2. I think this is just one of these things that I will stick to making to myself.

This summer, I have been keeping track of all the new movies I have seen and the books I have read. I'm up to 22 and 13 respectively. AWESOME.

Blue Nails

So today, I attempted to do something just a little bit different with my nails It's no where near as perfect as my OCD self wants it to be, but it is good enough for a first time. Anyway, I started off with Sally Hansen 'Blue Me Away!' on my nails. I actually did three coats, even though it would have looked just fine with two. However, I am extremely OCD about my nails looking even the teeniest bit sheer, so I did three coats.

Then, I used this green nail art pen I got as a gift to add some cool grass to my nails. I wasn't sure what kind of effect I was going for at the time, but I wanted to do something different with my nails. However, as I started applying my 'grass,' I began to noticed that it resembled a green five-leaf drug. So...there went just having some 'grass' on my nails.

My next stop was to use some of Essie's 'Fifth Avenue' to make some little flowers out of my grass. They don't really look like flowers...but this was a first attempt doing nail art okay? I mean, you should be pretty damn proud I wasn't just slapping some glitter on plain colored nails.

So here's to my first attempt at doing nail art (and probably my last for awhile). But you can't say I didn't try, right? Pin It

Movie Look

Top: I.N.C
Shorts: Hollister
Belt (not seen): Gap
Shoes: BCBG Max Azria

This is one of my last days at home this summer, and I am finally just getting a chance to enjoy some of my wardrobe! First off, lemme just talk about this top. It. makes. me. look. skinny. Now, I honestly cannot say this about too many other things, but I think it is something about this fabric and the cut. It's not a super tight top, but it defines my shape perfectly. I also love all the colors of this top with the bright contrast of white bottoms. To me, that's just the epitome of summer clothes.

To finish this off, I paired this with some really simple brown leather accessories. My vintage Coach bag (which isn't in this photo), a belt, and my favorite gladiator sandals. Overall, a perfect look for going to the movies to see Crazy, Stupid, Love and shopping at Ulta.

EBEW: Mixing Prints

Shirt: J. Crew
Skirt: Express
Belt: J. Crew
Sunglasses: Target
Bag: Coach
Jacket: DKNY
Necklace: Nordstrom Rack
Shoes (not seen): Steve Madden Luxe

I haven't participated in an EBEW in quite some time now (actually since polka dots in March).  Between wearing my red and khaki uniform for just about the last three months straight and not really liking some of the most recent themes, I just had not been in the mood to participate.

So when I headed over to the EBEW site just the other night to see what the theme for August would be, I was disappointed. In fact, as soon as I saw the title was 'mixing prints,' I groaned out loud. Me mixing prints? Ha - that NEVER happens. Matching my clothes (and jewelry and shoes)? Sure. I've been doing that since my mom has let me dress myself. But mixing prints? I've always left that to hipsters and people who are super good at getting themselves dressed in the morning. While I have almost always loved how mixed prints looked on other people, I didn't think I could put them together in something that resembled an outfit by myself.

However, this weekend when I headed up to Pittsburgh for a Pirates game, Train concert, and a family reunion, I decided I would I attempt to put together something that worked. Since I have always been favorable of this navy blue and white breton striped shirt and floral print ruffled mini skirt, I decided to just pair the two together and hope for the best. Personally, I am pretty happy with out it turned out! I think I remember reading somewhere that the patterns should have some of the same colors in them, which is why I think this kind of works. 

What do you guys think? How do you feel about mixing prints?

A week in photos

The world according to my iPhone this week:

Johnny Rockets at Six Flags! Chicken fingers, onion rings, and french fries!

My favorite thing about going to amusement parks/baseball game: dippin dots! The perfect way to cool down.

So if I want to order off the kids menu because I can't eat a're telling me I should pay an extra two bucks? No thanks, Ruby Tuesday.

My reading this week: The Help! I'm loving it a lot already!

I did all my back to school shopping today since I won't have any time with vacation during the  next two weeks. Between my team member discount, five percent red card savings and coupons, I save $82.36!
