My Lucky Finds

Posted on: August 23, 2013

Today, I will be returning from my vacation and taking the weekend off from blogging, so hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I’ll post vacation photos soon!

This Lucky Find Edition are all items I scored for my dear niece in my effort to support her love of fashion and as the self appointed Fairy Godmother of Accessories….

Old Navy Puffer Vest, her first one… I was delighted when she said she had admired one on her teacher and had wanted one!!!

She’s not much of a coat wearer, but when i showed her this online clearanced for $11.99 she perked up as she declared,

” those are my colors”  and promised she would wear this one…

IMG_1381

F21 plaid jacket, right on trend for Fall!  In my book, jackets and sweaters are accessories in a child’s wardrobe and something an Aunt should help out with!

IMG_1386

Wet Seal corduroy jacket, my friend told me if she didn’t want this I should keep it for myself… I am glad my niece liked it!

Red zippered cardigan.

Brown zippered cardigan with a hood, perfect for a ten year old..

IMG_1384

F21 navy and burgundy striped cardi with navy skirt .  Good colors for this Fall!

IMG_1385

Easy elastic skirt in colors I know she loves.

F21 orange striped shirt with button details at the shoulder  and on sleeves.

Plaid scarf

This was a sweater long scarf meant for outerwear, but since she loves infity scarfs , we turned it into one by sewing ends together…

Would do this again with any sweater type material ones!!!

I didn’t get to photograph the two pairs of boots I gave her, one were black riding boots with buckles and the other were short cowboy style in a light tan that she plans on wearing out!   So, I did good!

Dear Readers, I feel so blessed to be able to do this for my niece and love sharing fashion talk with her.  Is it bad that I would wear most of what I got her????  I was so happy with how the infinity scarf came together from a $ 2.00 scarf and will definitely be looking for others to create more of these for both myself and my niece.   The key is to find ones without fringe on the ends!! 

Gratitude

Ok, so this is the last day I am asking for you to take on the Gratitude list and make it your own!  Would love if you would humor me and write a comment of just one thing you are grateful for today!   It can be anything !  Come on help me keep this going!  I promise to take back over on Monday!!!

Thank You!!!

You find some awesome things and so exciting that you and your niece share a love of fashion together. The striped F21 top is adorable!

I am grateful for bloggers like you who are upbeat, motivational, and give me so many styling ideas. A great way to start my Friday morning! I’m likely heading thrifting now on my lunch break today looking at outerwear and scarves. Have a fabulous weekend!

Thank you so much and I hope you had success on your thrifting venture!

She is a lucky girl! And you are lucky to have someone to share in your love of fashion. Neither one of my daughters are much into fashion, let alone shopping. Thanks for sharing your wonderful finds! I am grateful that my husband noticed one of my tires was low and finding 2 screws in it before anything serious could happen.

OOOh, glad your husband is obsevant!!! Yes, my daughter isn’t into fashion either, so great to share it with my niece!

I am thankful that my two adult daughters live within 15 minutes of my home so I can see them frequently. I am thankful for my husband who compliments me even when I don’t feel at my best. I am thankful that, after 5 months, my back pain is finally subsiding. It has been a hard summer to enjoy.

Yes, being in pain daily is a tough one. Hope your back continues to improve! You luky woman, daughters who live close by and a hubby who compliments!!!

Welcome home! Your niece is a very lucky girl, and I know how much fun you had shopping for her. I’m grateful that my daughter just told me that she is, “completely happy.” She has had a great deal of teenage angst over the last few years, and I am thrilled that she is finally happy and content. Now I am just as happy as she is!

The best gift your daughter could have ever given you! Thanks for sharring that!!!
