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

IMG_20170512_130838_013

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: 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.

Fashion Confetti: $40

I need a pair of dull black heels, no shine, and very comfortable. Many time my illness can make my very high heels impossible. These are peep toe and comfortable, stylish,but just like a woman, I still need a pair that is not peep toe lol! Men don’t have so many options, so I think they are not qualified to ask “Why do you have so many shoes?” There are so many colors, so many occasions, so many…options….. (ha ha ha….but true!). I purchased them from JCPenny’s. A $60 pair of shoes on clearance for $17.99. Liz again and they feel so good to my feet. Also, I want to point out that before my illness I always varied wearing my heels, which I like high. Wearing high and very high heels can damage your feet, toes, knees, hips, and back over a period of time. I think this may be one reason I can still wear them with Rheumatoid Arthritis. I had surgery on my foot a few years ago because of Rheumatoid. So, take it from a shoe fanatic…every day, 8 hours a day, is not a good look. Give your feet a rest. Treat them to pedicures, massages, cute flats and fly sneakers.

I always thought going into Talbots with my Mom as a child was for the classy and mature crowd. I go  with her and I am starting to find some things I like. Am I getting older??? Of course! But my style has always been hard to pin down. Especially, since I go with how I feel and the occasion. Talbots makes you feel so special when they wrap your items! This was and amazing deal 59.50 for 11.85!!!! Faints…

I have black and gold earrings made with a pointy end and I thought this would go nice with it for 5.99.

Last Sunday was extremely cold in my city. I wore my camel colored thrifted corduroy jacket I think it was either $4-$8. The fingerless gloves were from Urban Outfitters in a clearance bin. Jeans are from TJMaxx at $24.99 (This brand of jeans are always between 19.99-29.99 and the brand is D. Jeans New York). The boots are the $22 dollar pair of knee high boots caught last year on sale at Dillard’s (clearance!). INC long sleeve t-shirt was half off at a Macy’s One Day Sale. Jessica Simpson leaf earrings were on clearance at Dillard’s. Necklace was on clearance from Target.

She sports a natural mohawk and minimum makeup (laughing as I type that!). A Vince Camuto dress purchased at the Macy’s in Las Vegas three years ago for…brace yourselves fashionistas….49.99!!! It was on clearance and in my size! I love this dress because it is really a fall dress and gives the fall so much warmth. It has a belt you that you can wear with or without to give the dress a different look. Also, the sleeves can be worn long or 3/4. The gold chain that ties or not, just gives it class and sass. The shoes are Steve Madden and the purse was borrowed from my mom. She purchased it at the Coach Outlet Factory. I love the way this dress moves on me. Vince Camuto is one of my favorite designers.
