My Lucky Finds

Posted on: March 13, 2014

When a fashionista is feeling under the weather and not styling fun outfits everyday…

She has to find something fashion related to occupy her….

I’ve been shopping for Spring/Summer

IMG_3302First up is this cobalt purse with green accents that I found on 6pm. com for 

I’ve wanted a purse this color,but have been hating the prices I keep seeing for them… 

This shape, color and price were right up my alley at just $26.99, I scored the very last one…


This one by Hurley is just $24.99 and and can be found Here... again at


I bought these pointed toe flats from Ebay..


I received an email notice regarding Birkenstocks on sale and discovered this Thahiti soft bed version for just $26.99, again from 6pm. com.   This was a one day special…

IMG_3305I couldn’t help myself, I am a woman who loves color and in case you haven’t heard, 

Birkenstocks are making a comeback and trending right now!!!!


I love Franco Sarto’s with this heel and found these on Ebay.  I love finding brand new shoes on Ebay for great prices..  These are going to replace some caged heels that I bought last year that are a bit higher in height and just outside my comfort zone of 3 1/2 inche heels…


Apparently my new favorite outlet for shopping is!

These navy crop pants are by Jag Jeans and are  found here


This “sweet Lemon” version are the same Jag Jeans crops and were cheaper… I didn’t list my price because it has changed from today’s … I got them for a few dollars cheaper…


Hey, if I am going to face my fear and try out cropped pants ( I was worried about proportion for my petite height and curvy hips)  I might as well go all in!  

These are by OSO Casuals, a ShopHQ exclusive brand and are clearanced for $17.36

Dear Readers, so now I’ve gotten a few pairs of shorts, kimonos, long boho skirts,  a new white top, cropped pants, shoes and purses for Spring, I think I need to call it quits on buying… Which is no problem cause I have two boys who need some new clothes.. Time to concetrate on that!   

I will be taking tomorrow off, as I just don’t have it in me to blog… It will be the 5 year anniversary of my mother’s passing and it has been hitting me pretty hard.  I think not feeling well, and with not being able to share my joy with her regarding my reading success with my homeschooling youngest and now the big news posted below in my gratitude section,  is just magnifying things… If I am feeling well enough my dear husband will be taking me out to dinner and we well be spending the weekend in Nags Head with friends..  I may push myself to go as long as no fever returns… 

Have a Wonderful Weekend!!!!


I have just one Gratitude for Today and that is that yesterday, My 18 year old received his accpetance and has already put down a deposit and said yes, to his number one college choice, VCU… Virginia Commenwelth University which has a Pre Optemetry major.. This young man was so worred that it took so long for his acceptance to come as he pinned all his hopes on this school for the fastest track to his future… He has so much schooling ahead of him with the goal of being an eye surgeon.  He smiled like a Chesire cat for a full ten minutes before being totally overwhelmed by it all and coming to tears.. Choosing a major and college really is the first major adult decision and I am so grateful that he has such an appreciation for the gravity of this… He went to bed last night so wired he was afraid he wouldn’t get any sleep…  

I toured this school with him and feel the city of Richmond environment while scary really is a good fit for him and hey there’s an added bonus… It’s just an hour and a half from home… But wait there’s more… This is in my husband’s territory of his new management position and he’s traveled there twice already (since Janurary).   If that wasn’t enough this is also a school my daughter applied to for her graduate program and is anxiously awaiting to hear from and may choose to attend as well….

As I said in a comment earlier in the week, I too share your elation with your success in homeschooling your son. So sorry you can’t share it with your mom. I know there is no feeling like it. As a teacher, I consider it my mission to help kids learn to love reading, and when one who has never read before gets hooked, my, oh, my. Congratulation to both you and your son. This is something that will go with him his whole lifetime.
On a lighter note, I also love 6pm (and Coldwater Creek outlet, and Chicos sale, and territory ahead sale, etc., etc.) and have been doing my share of spring shopping myself. My poor hubby is in need of some things, so this must stop!!! We fashionistas…sigh. What joy it is to dress well, and my husband is so appreciative that I make the effort to look nice. Am sure yours is, too.

Thank you so much for your compassionate understanding! Yes, my husband greatly appreciates my aesthetic in dressing and self-care, not something one can take advantage of after watching me gain 60lbs when my mother became ill… Hoping you have some fun shopping for things for your husband to get him situated…

Tracey, I love that you post your 2nd-hand finds! I also shop 2nd hand. Most (almost all) blogs share their finds & they are often EXPENSIVE! Not in my budget! Lol I love your finds- (aren’t purses FUN?!) and really, really love your cropped pants-the colors are wonderful. However, the MAIN reason I wanted to comment was to tell you that I’m gonna say a prayer for you today My heart breaks that you’re struggling & hurting. It says so much about you that you cherished your Mom so much. I still have mine but know I wont always have her, so I’m trying to enjoy her as much as I can-long distance, that is. I’m sure she’d be so proud of the woman you are & what you’ve accomplished. Hugs to you & I hope you feel well enough to go on your weekend trip!! Prayers for you being sent up… P.S. Congrats to your son! Woohoo! 🙂

thank you so much for your kindness and prayers!!!
