I have three friends that have birthdays in the month of January and they are all back to back. I had to prepare myself for three events mentally, physically, and FASHIONABLY!
Plus, there was a concert I had tickets to that Sunday. Just know that everything I wore was an item I purchased at a reasonable price, thrifted, or on clearance! I already had these items in my closet.
I needed all of this week to recover! And today is the first day I woke up with minimum pain. I had a flare up this week. Three days of restlessness due to pain-somnia (insomnia) due to pain, anxiety, and yesterday depression. Whew! Yet…joy came this morning.
Perfume can be very expensive. However, when you are a fashionista and thrifter, you know exactly where to go to add to your collection. TJMAXX! Yes, that is correct. Very good, designer perfume can be found at TJMAXX. It’s less expensive than going to one of those “outlet” perfume shops. I can never find any good deals in there and feel as if it’s a waste of time. Enjoy.
I felt the the jacket and thought to myself…”Oh….this is so soft.” I tried it on and it felt sooooo good and was a perfect fit. I purchased this at a consignment shop for 14.99. I had $10 off the 24.99 price tag. When I got home I searched Jessica London, the designer/label and found the jacket is called a leather shrug jacket. It retails at 219.00 and was on sale this week for 149. 00. Can you say this was a steal!!!! By the way…there are some really great deals on the website.
So here I wanted to be comfortable for an evening of hanging outside with friends. It is fall and the weather will be cooler as night creeps in. I put my white T-shirt, with a white jean jacket (since I don’t abide my the after Labor Day Rule of no white…some rules are meant to be broken!) from Jones New York Outlet for $27 in 2015. I paired them with jeans, my “chucks” or Converse (which were an $80 pair of shoes I got from Urban Outfitters on clearance for $30 a few years ago). My coach purse is from the Coach Outlet as well! Every thing in this photo was on sale, marked down or clearance.
I wanted to show how you how I shopped my closet and made another outfit by removing pieces and adding pieces.
Same pair of jeans and white T-shirt, but I removed the jean jacket and added a black knit sweater and wedged ankle boots. Easy! A casual date night outfit or out with friends and family to dinner. And yes…the Aerosoles shoes were on sale. (Very comfy for those of us with RA and Fibromyalgia).
These shoes were $12 on clearance @ Burlington’s. A pair of GUESS heels. (I can’t wear them because of a surgery I had last year due to Rheumatoid Arthritis….yes I know I’m too young for that but that’s another blog!). Update…I can wear them! LOL
