So, we had a “snow day” on Thursday which meant I didn’t have to go to work! Instead I went to Goodwill on San Mateo in Albuquerque. Three hours later…here is what I came home with:
INC International Concepts ( sold at Macy’s ) tuxedo inspired striped tunic…$5.99
Tommy Hilfiger wind breaker ( thrifted from the Men’s department! ) …$9.99
White House Black Market tunic…$8.99
Talbot’s striped top ( that I will probably wear open as a jacket )…$5.99
Camouflage flats ( BRAND NEW from Target! )…$8.99
Isaac Mizrahi checked button down shirt…$4.74
A couple of things, I got ALL of this for UNDER $45.00! I don’t like to pay full price (even at a thrift store) but I couldn’t pass this up. I did get a 10% off coupon with my receipt. FYI: On Monday’s Goodwill is 25%.
Also, can you tell I really like stripes and anything black and white? hahaha ;)
I’ve done the research…and am super excited for you to read this article I wrote for my Thrift Town Thrifty Over 50 blog. PLEASE…PLEASE…PLEASE click on the link and read it and comment if you so feel inclined. THANK YOU!!!
Miss Oreo decided to get in on the action this morning! I think she’s the perfect accessory to my outfit. Remember this Tommy Hilfiger plaid shirt from Savers? It’s two sizes too big for me and I had put it in the “giveaway” pile and then I thought “Hey!, I bet if I put a sweater over it, you won’t be able to tell that it’s too big for me!” I was right! I like how the trend is to button a shirt all the way up and add a statement necklace. This pearl necklace is from Forever 21. My red sweater is from Loft from a couple of years ago. Normally, I would have paired this outfit with my leopard print smoking slippers, but because I had P.E. I needed to wear “good shoes” so I wore my recently washed “chucks”.
Audition update: I got a callback!…and this is what I wore. This cobalt blue sweater is a recent purchase from Target. I’m trying to incorporate more blues and greens into my wardrobe because they look good on film, or so I’ve been told. It was a little low cut so I added a black camisole underneath. Black skinny jeans, Tory Burch riding boots and a statement necklace and I was ready for my “big” moment. Unfortunately, I blew the callback but I learned a lot about the film business that will help me the next time I audition.
I’ve been on the hunt for burgundy boots. I ended up finding them online at Macy’s. They were having a buy one get one half off so I bought these in gray too. This is what I wore to shop on Black Friday. I wore a camisole so I could take off my sweater and try on stuff in the store without going into the dressing room. I went thrifting at Savers where I scored a BNWT Tommy Hilfiger shirt for $10.50! Other brands I scored…Chico’s, L.L.Bean, Bass and Eddie Bauer.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Thought I’d share a casual look I wore the other day. You saw this striped tee with my “leather” vest. These shoes are years old from Macy’s and are the first ” leopard anything ” I ever bought! I like mixing leopard and stripes…in case you haven’t already figured that out! I learned a new way to tie this mustard infinity scarf via pinterest. Just twist it two times before putting it over your head.
