My Lucky Finds
Posted January 5, 2013on:
Yesterday I went thrift shopping and found a few items, then headed to Burlington Coat Factory.
At Burlington I went in search of sweaters that were longer to wear with tunic length tops….
This was $14.99, but I used a 20% off coupon. This has one hook and eye up at the bust line that if worn that way covers a majority of the top underneath. I have some hook and eyes and plan to add one more at the waist line, which opened it up and was a much preferred look.
This black one by United States Sweaters was $16.99 and I was allowed to use a second @0% off to lower that price. This comes with a belt and looks good with and without it. I like the versatility and think both these sweaters will serve me well.
This hounds-tooth jacket was purely an impulse buy and not at all my intention when shopping. I have been wanting a hounds-tooth coat and earlier in the season had fallen hard for a Calvin Klein one with leather trim. It was $400 and outside my budget, but I literally couldn’t stop dreaming about that coat. I don’t normally dream about fashion, so this was unusual. Anyway back to this little number. I was swayed by this one because of the $19.99 price tag and the chic look of the collar. It is definitely not a coat for freezing temperatures, but then again it is suppose to be in the 5o’s next week… I was able to use a 20% off coupon on this as well.
This last one is another Rachel Zoe trench coat via QVC. I already have this in both black and khaki and have really been resisting purchasing this red one. But alas I failed to resist and succumbed. It was on clearance for a long time and I kept watching it. When it got down to only the XS and said there were just a few left I couldn’t let it go The XS barely fits me, but is wearable and in the right size for my goal weight. The other two I own in Small and it will still work with the weight loss. I snagged it for 4 monthly payments which made it even easier to say yes. It is now sold out in this color, but available in others, here.
Dear Readers, I hope you have a wonderful weekend! I think I may be heading to take my 17 year old son to the doctor as this sinus stuff does not seem to be getting better. I am sneezing and have a runny nose this morning and pray I am not getting what he has…
