Are you a WALDO?

Do you have a White After Labor Day Outfit?

*

Growing up I used to hear people say that you should never ever wear white after Labor Day. Growing up we didn’t have many clothes so I probably didn’t have enough white outfits to wear the entire summer let alone carry over past Labor Day.

*

Now the older I get the quicker the seasons seem to change and the larger my wardrobe grows. I don’t know about you, but I never get a chance to wear all of my summer outfits in the summer months. Labor Day is the unofficial end of summer, but September 21st is the actual date so I will continue to wear white until then and maybe perhaps even into Fall.

Hello friends and happy 1st day of Fall 2012, I hope your Saturday was a good one. My day started with my sons and later we met up with a girlfriend and her son in Dover. Malik drove and our first stop was at Spence’s Bazaar. I took my Clutch Purses down because Lolita had offered to sell them on consignment in her kiosk, God is good! We walked around taking in the sights of fall: pumpkins, gourds, mums, fresh veggies and fruits. I truly love this time of year, transitioning from the heat of summer to the crispness of fall, even though it was in the 80’s today.

Our next stop was Target, I purposely did not get a cart but in the shoe section I found yellow pumps, not the florescent ones which were so popular this summer for $8.98 a pair, and when I saw them in pink and teal I ran with a quickness to get a cart! The black patent leather and snakeskin pumps were 30% off, so I only got the black pair. I will probably go back for the snakeskin’s next week. The clearance racks were filled with some great items and I found two sheer tops which will be worn over camisoles and a Merona Pencil skirt on sale for $18.00.

My girlfriend and her son met us at Target and our next stop was Beauty Max the beauty supply store. The boys veered off into CitiTrends while she and I shopped for over an hour, found some nice units, nail polish and beauty supplies, we also took time to assist others. Using our “expertise” we helped an elderly women who is scheduled for surgery and a young lady preparing for a wedding in choosing just the right wigs.

Tired and hungry we drove to Pizzeria Uno for a late lunch. The food was excellent and the waiter was outstanding. It was a perfect start to the new season and I am looking forward to the rest of the year!

Have a fantabulous night!

Saturday was an overcast and cloudy day which put me in the mood to do a little thrifting.  With a dollar limit in mind and a $10 gift card I headed south to Goodwill in Smyrna.  Upon entering the store I grabbed a cart which was taken by an associate because it remained empty and idle for too long.  I was looking around in search of Cowboy boots and I hate pushing the cart in and out of the aisles during my search.  I didn’t find the boots but found a few other items along with another empty cart on the other side of the store.

Aqua Maxi Dress – $5.00 // Bold Spirit Reversible, Suede Jacket – $7.00//St. Johns Bay Green Denim Skirt – $3.75

Style co Polka Dot Top – $3.75// Mootsies Tootsies Faux Leather/Croc Loafers – $5.00

Atrium Collection Blue and White Houndstooth Jacket with Bow – $6.00

As I headed back north to Middletown, I stopped at a small yard sale on Route 13 and purchased a belt and small makeup bag spending $2.00, the ladies were grateful since they hadn’t had a sale all day.  Goodwill in Middletown is undergoing renovations, “to make it a more pleasant shopping experience” which is what the sales associate said – lol.  Once again, the hunt for Cowboy boots was futile however, I did find a few nice skirts for the fall and winter season.

Multi Color, long sleeve top – $3.75// GAP Tweed Skirt – $3.75// Le Suit Black and White Houndstooth Skirt – $3.75

Chaus Green Skirt – $3.75// Mossimo Bronze Peep Toe Shoes – $4.00

Small stain in the tweed skirt came out in the wash and I will be removing the bows on the jacket because it cuts tight across the chest.

As per last week’s post regarding the Door Buster Sales at Boscov’s, here  are a few pieces that I added to my fall wardrobe.

Preswick & Moore Separates – $6.99 each

Belted Polyester and Spandex Cardigan – retail $54.00

Perfect Fit Waistband Pencil Skirt – retail $48.00

 

 

MSK Hi-Low Dress – $19.99

Retail $70.00
Grace Elements Rayon/Spandex Hi-Low Asymmetrical Top with Bat Wings – $6.99

Retail $68.00

These two pieces are attached – showing front lifted as well as back

nycollection Maxi Skirt – $14.99

Retail $48.00

Last week I saw a post on the GoodwillDE Facebook page that featured items from their Kirkwood Highway store, I’ve never been to that location and wanted to check it out.  So on Friday I rode with Tayair to Newark where he  attended a picnic sponsored by The Community Connectors and then I drove to Goodwill (saving gas) to shop.  Malik returns to school on the 28th and I found him some new shirts and polos for $5.00 and $6.00 each.

On this trip I was only looking for fall and winter items because Goodwill is now selling their summer items at 50% every Tuesday.

Sweater Vest which he likes to show off his muscular arms!! – $1.88

These 2 skirts made great additions to my fall wardrobe and I will wear them with tights and boots when the weather cools. – $6.00 each

This black mock neck sweater was a bit pricey at $8.00, but I liked the silver buckles across the front, I washed it in a lingerie bag on the hand wash cycle it came out perfectly.

These animal print pants was a last minute decision and I’m not sure if I will wear them, but if I do, it will be with a long sweater and boots -$3.75

.

Finally this sleeveless top is a transitional piece that I will wear now and then under a blazer in the fall and winter – $3.75
