My weekends when Joeys is on call can be a little...slow. Especially during the summer when peeps are taking trips to the beach, going on vacations, and grilling out, and I am waiting for the possibility that maybe, just maybe, he will be home before 6 so we can take a walk around the pond. Lets just say I have a lot of time to watch Bravo and shop. Sadly, I don't have the budget to hit Newbury Street every time I'm bored so I make it a personal challenge to see what cute duds I can nab with just a little cash.
You all saw the Goodwill goodies that I have collected so far this summer, but don't think I pass up the clothes and just bee line for the home section. I try to take my time and dig through everything to see what hidden gems I can find. I look for brand names and barely worn pieces that I can mix and match into my wardrobe. ANY sign of wear and its a no go- I have to be super picky because if it looks a little drab in the store then it will look awful when I get it home. Here are a few things I pick up recently.
WD NY colorful cardi/ H&M plaid shirt/ J Brand black Jeans/ Forever21 chiffon floral top/ Isabella Rodriguez striped cardi/ Forever 21 black shift dress/ Banana Republic ruffle dress/ Vintage black leather purse/ Fioni faux TB flats
I can't fight spending less 1/4 the cost of the J Brand jeans alone for all of these pieces. I got lucky with the faux Tori Burch flats because they were unworn and will be perfect when I'm just running around town and don't want to wear out my real ones.
It takes some real digging and patience, but these will be items that will fall seamlessly into my wardrobe and make me feel less guilty come bill paying time.
Anyone else have any 2nd hand finds that made you jump for joy in the dressing room?
