Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Archive for February 2012

From the bright blooms at Michael’s at 40% off…

…to the dresses at Ross Dress for Less starting at $14.99

…and the $20 off $50 purchase sale at Woman Within

SPRING IS DEFINITELY IN THE AIR!

Now that the weather is starting to warm, soon it will be time to change out my wardrobe. In my closet I have a lot of blazers, most of them purchased from Goodwill earlier in the year. There are several good reasons to buy from Goodwill, not only are your purchases helping others with job training and employment but when you no longer want or need an item you can re-donate it and get a tax deduction.
Most of these blazers were $3.75 or less and are labeled, Jones New York, Leslie Fay, Talbots, Kasper, Areo and Bergdorf Goodman

My weekend visit to Goodwill in Middletown cost me $20.25, I am hunting for a jean vest that I didn’t find I did however, find a few other things.

Long jean skirt with split up the sides – $3.75 and a pair of new white heels – $4.00

Black Skirt – $5.00

New Worthington Black and Grey wool skirt – $3.75

Men’s vests for my son – $3.75 each

I went to Kmart to get a coffee maker, I really just needed a new carafe for my Cuisinart, thanks to my son who broke it on President’s Day. Sometimes it’s cheaper to buy a new coffee maker plus I didn’t feel like driving to Bed Bath and Beyond without a coupon. Anywho, as I walked around I noticed their normal clearance rack and was immediately drawn to the cosmetics. I am always looking for a good concealer, I have yet to find one that truly banishes the dark under-eye circles. There were bins of Almay, Revlon, Wet n Wild and other name brand cosmetics for .50 each, I was running late so I only got these few items.

If I had more time, I would have been gone through these with a fine tooth comb!

The Fragrance Gift Sets are on sale for $4.00, these can be used for travel or placed in a basket in your guest bathroom/bedroom for visitors. The Cosmetic Gift Sets are also $4 and they would make nice gifts for teenage girls, or as additions to your own stock.

Yesterday while checking Facebook I saw Charmingly Linda’s had posted a coupon, $5.00 off a $30.00 purchase, good until Saturday. I decided to run down and check out the deals and not only was I able to use the coupon, but all of my items were 50% off! The consignment shop is located at 480 Lancaster Ave., Frazer, PA, 610-640-1220.

This color-blocked bag will be perfect to carry to church with a LBD – $4.50

Mid-calf, comfortable Spring/Summer dress to wear to work or out shopping on the weekend – $6.00

I have a red, sleeveless blouse that I got from Goodwill but it’s a little tight around the bust, so this is a perfect replacement – $4.00

I love the colors in this vest and it can be worn with anything, jeans, pants, or skirt with a skinny belt – $4.00

Finally, I am not sure what drew me to this jacket, but I love the look and feel of this “biker” jacket – $6.00

Here I am in the jacket after it was washed on delicate cycle.
