My Lucky Finds

Posted on: February 5, 2013

Homeschooling got started late on Monday and a lack of sleep meant I needed a nap afterwards.  The result was no outfit photo before the light of the day was gone… So instead here are my thrift store finds from this weekend.

IMG_1886Introducing “Ruby” my dress form!  For spring and summer I love skirts and a cute top, so with my weight loss need to get started replacing all those that no longer fit.  What better than polk a dots to get me started?  This is by Jones New York Signature and was just $2.50

IMG_1889This trip I ended up with a few black and white items.  Not a bad thing since when I went to the mall after thriftiing I saw a lot of this color combo coming in for spring.  This sweater is Ann Taylor Loft for just $2.50.


Just wanted to add  a close up of the trim on the sweater…

IMG_1893A simple pleated skirt in black & white by Express for $2.50

IMG_1894Closeup on the skirt print….


This blazer was a last minute find as I was near the registers and saw a woman pick it out of the rack and put it back. Lucky for me.  I love it because it is by Kasper and a petite.  The half price blue tag special made this just $3.50!Pric


A simple light weight tunic top that I wanted to go with olive and orange capris for Spring and Summer. Priced at $2.50.

IMG_1899I couldn’t resist this purse for spring at just $4.00.


I decided to try a headless picture of What I wore since my hair and makeup weren’t done.. Sorry for the poor lighting..

I am wearing jean skinny’s my tobacco colored cowboy boots, black sweater, orange top & belt and scarf. Hibernating days are good, but I did take out the trash, collect wood from the woodpile and get the mail….

Dear Readers,  It was nice to go thrifting  after a month off, I hope you liked my Lucky Finds.  Any favorites?  

Tuesday is Weight In Day so wish me luck and I’ll fill you in on my results tomorrow.  Trying to push it out for the last ten pounds!

Gratitude:  Grateful that I took care of myself and took that nap, as I really don’t do well with a sleep deficit and 3-4 hours doesn’t work for me.  I am grateful that when we have a slow day homeschooling that Connor always makes it up by the end of the week and takes full responsibility without my having to push him.  I am grateful that my seventeen year old’s teacher called us and cleared up that he can still turn his makeup work in and change the report card grade (8 days missed from flu!).

I love the jacket! The sweater rocks too!

You are going to look fabulous in that jacket! What a lucky find for sure. Good luck today at WW!

I really love the black outfit you’re wearing…with the pop of color in the scarf and belt.
My favorite thrift find….hmmmm…I think it would have to be that pretty tunic. That is going to be so cute with those capris.
