Like the internet needs yet another fasion blog, right?! But here's what sets this little space of mine apart: I come from a long line of thrifters. I remember Sundays in my Aunt Betty's enormous Cadillac searching local thrift stores for treasures and that thrill has never left me. And, to be honest, I have a bit of thrifting magic, like the Kate Spade kitten heels I found at my local thrift store, barely worn for $4. Crazy, I know. In addition to my love for shopping, I also strongly believe in giving back, so the combination of spending at a local charity thrift store fills both those loves.
I can also be found roaming the racks of my local consignment stores, as I love clearing out my closet to make room for new rags and not spending too much money doing so. I tend to be a bit brand specific when it comes to consignment, as I do feel certain brands hold up a bit better than others. Again, it feels good to support these local businesses and I'm so very lucky to have a plethora of consingment stores to choose from.
Also, I spent many years working as a Stylist for a major brand and I learned that EVERYTHING goes on sale. I rarely pay full price for anything and it is a joke in my family that Mum won't buy anything unless it has a red sticker on it, hence, recycled or red lines rags.
So, here's to new beginnings....
(The pictured outfit is my new favorite: a white tutu skirt I picked up on sale for $20, a consigned cashmere sweater, seriously reduced Kate Spade knot bracelet, and my mum's holiday gift of a rose gold Michael Kors watch that I've been pining for...not pictured my $4 Kate Spade treasures!)
