Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Posts Tagged ‘Talbots

Instead of attending a Fashion Night Out (FNO) event, I went thrifting at the Salvation Army in Wilmington and found a few fall pieces. I am not sure of their pricing policy or if it’s the same at all locations, but everything here ended in .99 cents. The clothing and shoe prices are a bit higher than Goodwill but less expensive than a Consignment shop.

Issac Mizrahi For Target Skirt – $4.99

Briggs Harvest Suede Skirt – new with tags from Sears – $7.99 (blue tag = 50% off) – $3.99

Talbots Green Suede Skirt – $5.99

Blue Skirt – $4.99 (blue tag 50% off) – 2.49

Clairborne Mens Jacket – $9.99

Leather Loafers – $5.99

Leather Pumps – $7.99

Happy Thursday, and thank goodness that we on  the horizon to the weekend!  I’ve been watching some of the results of the 2012 Olympic games and losing sleep because of it so Saturday I will definitely be sleeping in.  For today’s outfit I mixed  a  purple print because these floral sandals sat in my closet for over a year waiting for a solid match.

Top – Closet staple//  Talbot’s Denim skirt – Goodwill//  Floral Wedges – Ross//  Ring – Mizoutlet.com//  Bracelets – jewelry box// Earrings – Burlington Coat Factory// Watch – Avon

With only 3 weeks of school remaining my son is still telling me about events or special things happening at school.  Trust me, I love the fact that my high school son still wants to share this part of his life with me, but why is it always last minute?  Anywho, he tells me that he and his buddies have decided that the next 3 Wednesdays will be “Preppy Days” .  I  remember those days, we wore IZOD polo shirts with alligators on the chest, khaki pants, boat shoes, etc.  My son has jeans, sweats and dress pants so yesterday I had to hit up the Goodwill in Exton, PA.

I got him 3 pairs of dockers and a pair of Banana Republic dress pants, with the price tag still attached ($98.00) for $3.75.  I washed the dockers and threw the dress pants in the bag slated for the cleaners.  Of course I also found myself a few things and hubby gave me his waist size just in case I came across more new slacks in his size….gotta love it, it gives me more of a reason to visit the Goodwill stores because it’s like a treasure hunt!

Yesterday I hit up the Goodwill stores in Thorndale and Chadds Ford, PA.  The clerks were busily filling the racks with Spring and Summer wear and I was able to snag a few items to add to my wardrobe.  Today I am taking a box to the Goodwill in Middletown because for everything I bring home, I remove something from my closet and donate.

I’ve decided to take pictures while in the store even though other customers look at me like…”who is she and why is she taking pictures”, it makes me feel like Re’gine  in the episode of “Living Single” when she pulled together an outfit while working at “Le Rag Bin” for the soap opera “Palo Alto” – Smooches!
