Holiday Looks from Goodwill!

Dec 18, 2013 | 10 Comments

Hello friends!  The airports have been braved and my travel day is complete.  A full post comes tomorrow along with another fun giveaway but in the interim, how about some holiday wardrobe help??

I worked on a piece for Goodwill scoring three separate holiday looks from their racks.

Couldn’t have been happier with what I found!  Click on over here to see the entire piece!

I’m looking forward to the treasure trove that is NC to scour for more fun pieces.  I think my mom is excited for a shopping buddy!  I didn’t check any bags coming here, but I might have to check one going back!!

Outfit Tweak: Orange Polka Dot Sweater

Nov 11, 2013 | 7 Comments

So today’s remake wasn’t originally a “remake” because it was in really great condition…so I thought.  I went down to San Diego for the Chargers/Broncos game yesterday and toted this piece along with me to wear.  I was in the company of Broncos fans, so I thought I’d cheer along with them in shades of orange.  I borrowed a Denver Broncos t-shirt to don and thought this piece would complement it nicely.  Who doesn’t love a little orange polka-dot business?

Holes!!

HOLES!!  There were a few on the back and one big one on the shoulder.  I got this piece a few months ago and washed it right away, however I must have just missed these little suckers.  Luckily for me, I always come prepared with some needles and thread in the purse.  (I know, it’s nuts, however if you ever run into me and are having a wardrobe malfunction, guess who’s gonna get you out of it??  Needles, thread, safety pins, double stick tape…you need it, I got it!)  So, I got stitching…
