Outfit of the day: Yellow, Black & White

  • Yellow is a thifted tank top & vintage costume jewelry bracelet from my late great aunt’s stash.
  • Black is the short sleeve jacket from Target (purchased a few year ago) & Bauble Bar bracelet via on of my Birchboxes (though I didn’t participate in this contest¬†and it creeps me out a little that Justin Bieber apparently wears this bracelet.)
  • White is the stripes in the tank top, another vintage bracelet, & the earrings I made from a pair of vintage clip on earrings.
What do you think? Good combo? Overkill on the arm candy? :)

Another thrifted clothing haul –
June 7 2012

So I needed a break from a particular project yesterday and ended up shopping for 3 hours … 3 hours was a little more than I was going for but I found some good finds.

Let’s start with my favorite piece that didn’t fit – the neon shirt. I SO wanted this to fit!!! I have been obsessed with neons and neutrals and this is SUCH a cute shirt!

Baltimore Design Group which I think is a Chadwick’s line.

Next up the black with tiny polka dot golf shorts. They’re a little higher waisted than I like so I’m debating whether these will go to consignment or not. I also don’t wear a lot of shorts. :/

Next up, the green skirt and the navy gap shirt. I have a picture of the skirt on me but I look like a watermelon because I was trying everything on with the hot pink tank. Which reminds me – the reason I put the clothes on the mannequin today was because my allergies are acting up and the scented detergent on them was bothering me.

Next up I have the Merona pink knit dress. Basic but something I can dress up or down. It will look better with a cardigan and some jewelry I think.

While I’m on a roll with pink, I’ll go ahead and show you the Gap Body sweater hoodie. A little out of season but in good condition and I didn’t want to pass it up.

And then the Talbot’s linen crop pants in mint. They’re a mint color that’s also hard to get a good photograph of but they were new with tags and a nice find. They have a bow tie that I’m thinking about converting to a D ring belt because I think the bow is a bit awkward looking on me. I’m also not a huge fan of cropped pants and typically try to avoid them but I kinda liked these a little too much to pass.

A couple more that I’m selling because they’re too small: BB Jeans blue tunic with embroidered detail, Ann Taylor tunic, Talbots pink skirt (new with tags again.)

And then a few more I’m keeping: Tommy Hilfiger black button up blouse with tiny polka dots (see a theme?), Express light flowy tank with black and white flowers, and The Limited short sleeve with gray stripe blouse.

And then the Talbots black and white skirt

And a couple more shirts – I can’t remember the brands at the moment but they’re both super soft and in great condition:

So yeah … about $50 worth – quite a nice haul for $50
(though I think they miscounted and my total ended up being $41.34 oops!)
Adds a lot more variety to my wardrobe.

And one more thing, not purchased yesterday but about a week ago,
the ties we thrifted for Tim.
$1.50 each plus $3.50 drycleaning (just gotta clean the thifted items.)

These were Tommy Hilfiger, Nautica, Club Room, Gap and DKNY!

I’m thinking about trying to take more photos of the outfits we’re putting together for Tim. Any interest in guy’s outfits posted here too?

What I wore today – argyle in the snow


Today I’m wearing more for practicality between the freezing cold (20′s!) and a chiropractic appointment (wanted to feel the short massage without a bulky sweater.)

So I’m layered with:
- a plain black long sleeve tee (origin unknown)
- argyle sweater; Merona thifted
- jeans; walmart’s faded glory (no I don’t really like shopping there but love this pair of jeans)
- boots; leather uggs I’ve been wearing for around 4 years & purchased half price at TJ maxx (I just change the inserts for $20 each year and re-waterproof)
- car coat; Macy’s I think
- broach; grandmother’s

Gorillapod and a glif means now I can take more photos faster so I might be doing this more often.

LBD …. nope LBHeels

Target – Merona Vilma Suede Peep-Toe Pumps in Black

target black heels

The photo on their website doesn’t do these shoes justice at all and my photo is only a little better. They are gorgeous, sexy and also simple enough to go with almost anything at the same time. I had been eying a pair of Nine West Bonfire shoes online and these look exactly the same. The only bad news is that there are only two colors in the Target brand (black and grey) and I kinda was hoping for black leather instead of suede.

On top of how awesome they look, they are comfortable for heels. At some point a few years ago I messed up my toe on my left foot and ever since even just trying on a pair heels typically causes a sharp and severe pain in that toe. This pair there’s no sharp pain. I think my weight is more on my heel than the ball of my foot (not completely but more than most) AND the sole of the shoe is rubberized so your not sliding ALL over the place. They are 3.5″ heels so they are pretty high and I can’t say these are walking shoes but I am REALLY happy with this purchase.
