Blue Suede Loafers and More Trader Joe's Products

This is my second pair of blue suede loafers I've thrifted.  The first pair I had to re-donate because they ended up feeling too loose.  These Isaac Mizrahi brand ones seem juuuust right and, for $4.79, were a good price.  I find myself throwing these on a lot when I'm just hanging around the house.
 Here are some more Trader Joe's products we've tried recently.
The Kung Pao Tempura Cauliflower was a hit and cost $4.99.  We ate it over the Vegetable Fried Rice below which is $2.99. Very good.  I would eat this a couple of times per month. 
We eat the rice with lots of other dishes too.  Love the rice.
The Vegetable Biryani with Vegetable Dumplings was okay and a good price at $2.49.  It fed the two of us for dinner. I'm not sure we liked it well enough to purchase again, but it might be something I'd buy on a rare occasion for a change.

OOTD + New Trader Joe's Meal

Trader Joe's has provided us with another great addition to our meal rotation.  This week we tried the Kung Pao Tempora Cauliflower served over a small amount of the Vegetable Rice.  Yum!  We loved it.  I did add a tiny bit of rotisserie chicken to it.  We had this for a dinner and a lunch (for 2 people).  The cauliflower package says it provides 6 servings, but for us it provided 4 servings.  Well, 2 larger dinner servings and 2 smaller lunch size servings.
 We have a personal meal rating system for how good it is as to how frequently we could eat a particular product or meal.  This one rated at once every month or so.  I am actually craving it again now and could eat it more often that that. :)
Another product we tried recently was the Trader Joe's Vegetable Biryani with Vegetable Dumplings.
It was not bad.  I probably liked it more than hubby.  I would only rate this an every 3-4 month meal, but it's a decent option for variety.

New Stuart Weitzman Loafers

Black loafers is one of the few things I had left on my wish list of things I look for when I'm thrifting.  I was thrilled to find 2 pair in one shopping trip!  And I love them both.  I actually bought 5 pairs of shoes that day.  I was happy that it was a 40% off shoe sale.  Yay!

The pair I'm wearing here are Stuart Weitzman black patent loafers with tassles.  
I also got 3 other pair of loafers, a pair of ballerina flats, and black All Star Converse sneakers.  So I know I will wear everything I got. 
I have been doing a bit of a shoe purge and have donated many I had extra shoe room. :)
loafers $4.79 Stuart Weitzman
