Versatile Style by Tracey

My Lucky Finds

Posted on: January 5, 2013

Yesterday I went thrift shopping and found a few items, then headed to Burlington Coat Factory.

IMG_1452I loved this pastel striped sweater by New York & Company  so much I actually paid full Goodwill pricing of $4.99

IMG_1453This is a Navy & White striped 2 pc set by Ann Taylor Loft that was half price at just $2.50.

At Burlington I went in search of sweaters that were longer to wear with tunic length tops….

IMG_1454This 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.

IMG_1456This 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.

IMG_1457This 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…

Linking up with Look What I Got hosted by the Penniless Socialite and The Tiny Heart, so time to investigate some new bloggers…

There is a hounds tooth coat at work that I want. Waiting for the price to drop!

That must be so hard to work around clothes all day, especially since it is a brand you like! Hope it goes on sale soon!

As soon as I get paid, I give it right back!

I need that Ann Taylor pullover to go with the Ann Taylor tops I thrifted on Friday – lol!!!
I have nominated you for a “Very Inspiring and Versatile Award” – please accept here: http://dedivahdeals.com/2013/01/05/very-inspiring-versatile-blogger-award/

I love this award and having to nominate others. I am currently sick, so will begin this tonight and finish it up tomorrow…

Oh, take your time and feel better!

LOVE the coats! And I am amazed that you’re down to an X- Small already. You go girl!

I am fitting in XS only in designers on QVC as they seem to run a size larger, at least that has been my experience…

Even one XS is quite an accomplishment. I’m 5’8″ and have the shoulders of a football player. I will never be an XS, in any brand, no matter how much I lose. You are doing great!

thank you, yes we all have different body types and have to learn to love and embrace them! You are luck to have your height and the big shoulders with my petite height that would be a tough one…

Love the houndstooth coat! Thanks for linking up! Hope to see you back this Thursday!
