My Lucky Finds

Posted on: November 1, 2012

Earlier in the week I mentioned my day thrifting on the coldest day that we have had, yet and the day after Hurricane Sandy blew through.  Since I was cold that morning, I went right for the sweaters. These were all from Goodwill.

This is an Ann Taylor and so cozy.  I already wore it this week. In fact, I am sitting writing this all snuggled up in it right now!  This was not purple tagged and therefore not half price and $4.99

I don’t know what it is about the color green right now, but I am loving it.  This is by Dressbarn and the perfect cropped length I am looking for to lengthen my leg line as a petite woman. It was half off and $2.49

I aquired  another black sweater that was the Rayon/Nylon blend I like since it doesn’t pill. It did not photograph well on it’s own, so here it is styled. I just got these leggings and they are more for my goal size, but couldn’t resist trying them out.  Today is a busy homeschooling day, so no head shot as there was  no time for hair and makeup…

It is By Talbots and was just $2.49

Honestly, I was just looking at sweaters when I came across this jacket that someone had tucked into the sweater rack…

I absolutely loved it and tried to get my thrifting friend to purchase  it. but it didn’t fit her larger chest right.  I just couldn’t seem to let this thing go.  First of all, I love brown, then there is the details, it is a petite, it was purple tagged and half price!  What else could I do.  Yes , I know, I now have 3 brown jackets that I have purchased  lately.  I promise I am done with brown jackets….

This is a  Talbots and was just $3.49.  For that Price I can own three brown jackets and feel no guilt!

Then there is Ebay…. I found  this faux motorcycle jacket and love it. What I love most is that it is tight and will work as I lose the last 19 lbs... I was disappointed that it wasn’t the blush pink color in the photo I  had originally seen, but not enough to send it back. I did mention that to the seller and they said they would send me a gift as an apology. Coming from Hong Kong, so waiting to see what that is…

This is an Olive cropped Jacket and just the color I was missing in a cropped jacket.  This color is s workhorse in a wardrobe and I am picturing so many color combos for this… I paid only $11 including shipping.  Small enough to take me to my goal weight, yay!

I also ordered this reversible belt from HSN on clearance for $12.90 including shipping.  I needed the animal print belt one and that green is just a bonus.  I loved it so much I went back and they have only the zebra and orange left and ordered it as well.  By the time I post this they could be gone as they were down to less than 20 in only 2 sizes.. It is by Twiggy London.

Gratitude- I am grateful that my daughter got her new IPHONE when she was home for fall break as the apps have helped her study for her GRE.  I am also grateful for my strong faith as I pray for friends struggling in their lives.  I am grateful for the perspectives of my friends and how they make me see things beyond my own tendencies.  

I hope you dear readers all have a great weekend!  May we all keep those dealing with struggles from Hurricane Sandy in our thoughts and prayers.  I am going to do my best to stay away from the 11 pounds of Halloween Candy my son collected….My thoughts and prayers will be with my daughter this weekend as she finishes up projects and a particularly stresssful week of college and takes her GRE on Saturday.  As a psychology major heading into the competition of graduate schools this is a big deal for her. .. 

Dear readers, your comments are welcomed and appreciated. I thought I could add a feedback form to the bottom,but it didn’t work… To leave comments please go back to the top of this post, thank you!

Perfect belt, I envy you. Perfect motor jacket. Like your black outfit with the printed trousers.
