These boots might make me waver on my cheap shoe assertions from a couple days ago. These were only $40, are not real leather and the COMFIEST heels I’ve ever worn. In my life. I’m so glad I didn’t stick to my “no brown shoes” rule!! I have Pinterest to thank for swaying me from that opinion. I’ll be really sad when they reach the end of their cheap shoe shelf life. Hell, I’m tempted to get a couple pairs and store them for when that time arrives. I’m being completely serious.

I had a pretty great day. I got to see the inside of the new Barclays Center. For free. I took the kiddies and my teenage cousin to a college basketball game, there. It wasn’t the greatest. But, the weather was nice, we were out doing something and (luckily for me) I was with the five easiest to please young people in Brooklyn.

Bonus: I squeezed in a visit to my grandmother AND I found the perfect storm of location, lighting (nearly the best, this sweater is much brighter) and camera settings for indoor photos. Not a match for outdoor ones, but certainly better than some previous attempts!

I hope you all enjoyed your Saturday

Today’s Thrift Haul

I’m going to start photographing my thrifted finds right away. This will help me keep track of what I spent and ensure that I have a before shot for any future refashions. I still have things (a black DKNY trench coat, at least 2 dresses and a sweater) that I’ve never posted about.

Anyway. I was inspired to hit the thrift after spending some time checking out a new (to me) blog yesterday. Vintage Vandalizm, an insanely gorgeous and stylish New Yorker, is sooooo inspiring. Reading her blog has reignited my passion for thirfted clothing and my desire to do more outfit posting.

 Today I planned to look for:

  • light colored or printed, pants and jeans
  • long and/or over-sized dresses to refashion

Look what I found

 

Due Per Due {100% Silk} Ensemble

Due Per Due 100% Silk Ensemble $4.59

Due Per Due 100% Silk Ensemble $4.59

These are a bit frumpy worn together, but I think they have great potential as separates.

I’m always in awe of the cute novelty prints other bloggers thrift. I’m so happy to have found this! Look at how cute it is!

Banana Republic {Stretch} Jeans

Banana Republic Jeans $4.00

I’m still replacing the jeans that are too big for me. These fit a bit tight…but for $4 if I tire of them, no big deal. I’m so used to skinnies or super wide leg now, this boot cut fit looks weird. I might taper the legs.

K & Company {100% Rayon} Dress

K & Company 100% Rayon Dress $6.39

K & Company 100% Rayon Dress $6.39

K & Company 100% Rayon Dress $6.39

I’ve been intrigued about wearing longer dresses since seeing the success some fashion bloggers have had with them. This needs some work. I think the pockets are causing the side seams to bulge a little bit. It’s also a size 10, which is too big up top on me. The shoulder pads don’t help things, either.

::Deal of the Day::

7 Brand {Stretch} Jeans

7 Jeans for $7.39

7 Jeans for $7.39

I’m still a bit flabbergasted by this…these retail for $169 on their site. Who the hell GAVE these away??!?!?

They’re a little too long. But that’s an easy fix.

No luck on the light colored pants today. The Salvation Army has more (WAY more) pants to choose from, but no fitting room. I’m bursting with ideas for the polka dot dress and the silk separates. I’ll be back soon with some inspiration pictures.

Happy rest of the day to you!
