Hello Friends, I hope you had a great day.

It’s late and I just finished up a TweetChat (#TBW). I didn’t think I would post this until tomorrow because I couldn’t think of an outfit title.  Here are a few that popped into my head but none seem right, help me name this outfit so I can go to sleep!

Hello Friends, I hope you are having a terrific Tuesday.

It appears as though everyone is back to work because the commute was slow and I drove even slower trying to save gas. Can you believe the prices, I last paid $3.65 for a gallon and it’s goes up a few cents every day.  How much is it in your area?

My commute is 100 miles round trip and it is definitely putting a dent in my wallet, so to save money I have vowed not to shop until April when the prices are supposed to drop. The economic recovery is no where near where it should be and these gas prices aren’t helping!  Before my self imposed shopping freeze I was able to snag two skirts from JC Penney’s for $5 each and am wearing one of them with a thrifted top and blazer.

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday.

I apologize if when you read today’s title you thought I would be posting about Barefoot or Lindeman Sweet Red Wines – nope, it’s not Friday nor is this Instagram!
Today’s posted outfit is Wine in color, or you could call it Oxblood or you could call it Burgundy – whatever … I chose Wine because it starts with a “W” and so does Wednesday – u so silly!  How would you describe the color?

Hello Friends and Happy Monday, 15 days until Christmas and the 7th day of Hanukkah 2012.

 Today is one of those, “jump back into bed pull the covers over your head” type of days.  It’s cold, damp and dreary,  but it’s also another day the Lord has kept us so I’ll rejoice and be glad in it.  However, the dreary weather is cause for my dreary outfit including the sensible shoes.

Hello Friends and Happy Cyber Monday, are you shopping online today?  There are a few items that I’d like to get but nothing major so I think I’ll wait until this evening or perhaps even after the holidays for deeper discounts.  On Black Friday I didn’t go to the mall instead I went to GW Boutique (Goodwill) in Middletown, it wasn’t crowded so I was able to take my time to find a few items knowing that I would return Saturday for the 50% off sale.

Dressbarn 3/4 sleeve blouse

Style & Co. Polka Dot  Knit Top

Apt. 9 Brown and White Polka Dot Shirt Sleeve Blouse

In Vain Polka Dot  Short Sleeve Blouse

All items were $3.75 each, I would have waited until Saturday but didn’t want the hassle of relocating them and I am not one who “hides” merchandise- lol

WantedShoes.com  Leather Studded Pumps – $4.00

Givenchy Parfume Quilted tote – $2.00

Perfect size for carrying my iPad, note pad, wallet and cell phone

Holiday heels unfortunately were not my size

Hello friends and happy Saturday night, I am posting Part 2 of my Goodwill Goodies from Smyrna. Last month while shopping my closet I realized that I was in need of long sleeve blouses to wear under blazers. Today I thrifted mostly dark colors but next week I will be back hunting for more colorful ones because on Saturday all clothing will be 50% off – Woohoo!

This location always has a wide variety of shoes, these caught my attention but weren’t my size.

To clean and disinfect thrifted shoes I use Clorox and disinfecting spray inside, outside and on the soles.

Happy Hump Day Wednesday….let the countdown begin.  Why do I wish my life away by rushing the week to get to the weekend?  I need to be more conscience of that and simply enjoy each day because they are not promised.  Today’s outfit is once again not thrifted even though it didn’t start out that way.  The first skirt I put on was from Goodwill but it was a little too tight….gotta watch those carbs!!  I love the color burgundy for the fall and have read that it’s the color for the season, that and “oxblood”.  Who in the world cut an ox and then decided to use the color of the blood to describe clothing – where in the world do you find an ox anyway?

The multi-color skirt was purchased last month from Boscov’s (remember this sale) and I paired it with the burgundy top from Ross or Marshalls.  Picking up the mustard color in the skirt with the xhilaration sandals via Target.  Necklace and earring set from Jewelrymax.net as well as rhinstone, butterfly ring.  The tri-color metal bracelet is from my jewelry box (which means I can’t remember where it was purchased).

Have a wonderful day and make the most of it, I’ll try to do the same.
