Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Posts Tagged ‘Thrifting

Hello Friends and Happy Monday.

I hope you had a nice weekend and are starting off your work week in a positive, stress free way!  This morning standing on a sunny deck I couldn’t help but think of Spring with the forecast of temps to rise above 56 degrees by the end of the week. I am however, not naive to think that we won’t be hit with snow and this deck will be covered before the end of February!

On Friday I stopped at GW Boutique (Goodwill) and thrifted a few items all for $3.75, including this sleeveless, black and white tank. It was new, with the tags from Marshall’s still attached. Goodwill is also getting bougie because some of their tags read “Goodwill Boutique”!

Hello friends and Happy Fri-Yay, Black Friday! I hope you all had a good day and if you were out shopping for deals you found some great ones! I started my day early but didn’t get out of the house until almost noon. I went to Goodwill for a little thrifting and tomorrow all clothing is 50% off so I’ll definitely be going back. This evening I attended a Home Purse Party with a friend and purchased a nice designer inspired Michael Kors bag.

I wore my black jeans and jacket today for Black Friday but changed my top, boots and bag for the Purse Party.

Hello friends and Happy Tuesday before Thanksgiving

Yesterday, after work I met with two representatives from The Money School of Delaware.  They had read my post, “From Purses to Portfolios” and were so impressed that they offered me an opportunity to create their blog as well as host various training webinars.  Attending events and writing about women’s issues mixed with the fashion and savings was exactly where I wanted to take this blog.  Now that this has come to fruition so quickly I want to thank God for I am truly blessed and look forward to working with some great people at The Money School.

I will keep you posted as to when it goes live because it will be separate from my dedivahdeals blog.

HAVE A FANTABULOUS DAY – SMOOCHES!

 

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.

Hello friends and Happy Saturday, I hope you had a great day and are winding down to a relaxing evening. I finally broke my “thrifting fast” and went to Goodwill in Dover and Smyrna in search of a few blouses and skirts. On the top of my list were a white blouse, a houndstooth skirt and anything colored oxblood – JACKPOT I found them all and then some!

I love these shopping baskets on wheels at the Goodwill in Dover, the store where my sister last worked and I could only smile thinking about her. RIP Gloria!
