Today's Outfit (Monday 12/26) Bursting At The Seams
(I'm a day late posting this.)
Today I did some thrift shopping. Hair in a bun, comfortable shoes...and off I went to spend a couple of hours at Goodwill. They were having all colored tags on sale for 50% off, except blue tags which were only 99 cents. Here's what I got for $44.29.
3 pr. dress shoes - 1 of which is Anne Klein
13 tops/sweaters - 1 is a black cardigan w/ faux fur black detachable collar which I'm hoping I can us on other things.
I got some really good bargains!
I'm going to have to weed through my clothing and choose some older things I rarely, if ever, wear to re-donate so I can make room for the new. It is difficult for me to part with clothing though. I'm going to really have to ask myself if this is one of my favorite pieces and evaluate how long it's been since I've worn it...and then let my least favorite unworn items go.
I am fortunate that when we moved into this rental house the second bedroom was already equipped with storage organizer units (hanging and shelving) along both long walls. This is in addition to a fairly large closet with shelving where I keep my shoe and scarf collection. When we were shown this house for the first time and I saw this room I was ecstatic! haha So I have this whole room for all my things and desk for computer, makeup mirror, etc. and John has the whole other bedroom closet to himself. Needless to say, that over the last year and a half of thrift shopping I have managed to fill up every available space in this more than adequate room. It's time for a mild purge.
Thrifted Items: Brown jeans, brown hooded zip up sweater, rust tank top, purse $2.50 Nine West.
