Fashion Confetti: Consignment Shops

IMG_20170512_132022

Let the record show, I am really good at this! (LOL) or just very fortunate to find such great deals to enhance my wardrobe. This Le Suit jacket is a separate and retails from 59.99-79.99 and to get it, and it fits perfectly, for 24.99 was awesome. It will add a big pop of color to outfits. The pants below are by Kasper and I saw them for about 69.99-79.99 printed patterns. 9.99 is what I paid. I wore them for mother’s day as I opted for the cool and casual mom look. I added my 6.98 top from Target, a purse that was a gift from someone years ago, and Nine West shoes from TJ Maxx that I already had in the closet. I really like those shoes. IMG_20170512_132132.jpg

Fashion Confetti: Shopping Off Seasons

 

We took a trip to Iowa and I went to a Goodwill store there. They had coats and Jackets on sale. I paid 13.99 for the St. John’s Bay, lined, double breasted coat on the left and the 5.99 for the corduroy jacket on the right. I will have them dry cleaned and put them away until the Fall/Winter. It pays if you are on a budget to check out some of these shops. I donate clothes to the Goodwill, Salvation Army, and thrift stores. I also consign. My mom always gave and she told us to never give something you wouldn’t want to wear. So, I make sure it’s in good condition and sometimes it’s brand new. There are people out there who do this and that’s how you find some great items. Both of these are excellent quality and excellent condition.

Fashion Confetti: Target Clearance

Just a few items from Target clearance. I wanted a few black and white tops for church and other dressy to casual outfits. I think you can do miracles with black and white pieces. It was a challenge to get a great shot of the black sheer blouse! (but it’s so so cute) And I really like the cropped sheer black and white blouse/top.

Fashion Confetti: Thrifting Gap

IMG_20170419_180916

Very cute dress with pockets! I like a dress or skirt with pockets. I found this summary dress made by the Gap at a thrift store. They were having a 50% of everything sale. I paid $4.50 for this little dress and I plan to take it on vacation. I hope I can find some gold sandals and maybe accessorize it with gold jewelry or tone it down with brown sandals and brown/bronze jewelry? Who knows we will see and I will show you when I do wear it.

Fashion Confetti: Sunny Side Up

A really good deal at a consignment shop. This dress was begging to come home with me and for a little under $20, which was my budget, I obliged. I wore this Easter Sunday. I really wish I would have had some yellow or white heals but, the nude heels went well.

Fashion Confetti: Frugal Birthday Finds

Essie polish is not cheap. This is why when you find it on clearance or mark down you snatch it up. This was the case at TJMaxx. It was on clearance for 3.00 a bottle. Also the headbands, which I have a hard time finding these were for 2.00 and originally 8.00. I turn the bow to the back and you can’t see it. All are very spring and summery colors.

And I went back to Dillards to search for the hot pink shirt I wanted and it was marked down a little more for 22.40. The original price was 64.00.

This is me Sunday. My shoes are by Nine & Co and I think they were like 5.00 on clearance some years ago, but I can’t remember where. I always thought they were an odd color and a challenge to match. However, I have worn them a few times with jeans or khakis. The back of the shoe is a teal color and I have not found anything to match it. It worked out great for the shirt and a pair of jeans. My lipstick is by MAC “A Girl About Town.”

Fashion Confetti: From a Friend

20170219_091725.jpg

This pale pink purse by Aldo is a favorite of mines. It was given to me by a dear friend for my birthday. She wasn’t sure if I would like it or have something to wear with it. Ha! I found so many things and ways to accessorize this purse. My first time carrying it was with this black and white dress, pointy flats, and black and gold jewelry. I thought it was a nice combo as we are near spring. It’s a subtle pop of color and I like it.
