Yes! I’m still keeping up with my New Year’s Resolution! Can you believe it? I’m halfway through the year and have not bought any new clothes or shoes! Wow. The two hardest things to find have been fancy dresses for weddings and cute sandals. I found a dress to wear to summer weddings (the green silk dress below), but I still haven’t found a new (used) pair of metallic bronze or gold sandals to wear for the rest of the summer. Actually, metallic is not necessary. I would do with a nice woven cognac gladiator sandal. But if its not on the used shoe rack, I can’t buy it.
Here’s all of the wonderful stuff I’ve found recently, including the items I found at the Buffalo Exchange (BE) in New Orleans and Philadelphia:
So I’m pretty much getting the hang of this. But be warned: The second stores open on January 2nd…it is so on! I’m going to raid Target and Forever 21. They won’t know what hit them. And Shoe Station! Yeah! But I’ve also learned so much about buying pre-owned clothes. Now that I know where to look, I plan on continuing to buy used, but I will treat myself to something new every now and then.
I would also like you all to be aware of my new work schedule, which starts next week. I think its a pretty neat schedule, but my blogging will be a little funky. I will be working on a 14-day rotation, meaning I will work 14 days straight (looooong, 12+ hour days) and then have 14 days off. Awesome, right? So during my work weeks, you probably won’t hear from me much, but when I’m off, I will be bombarding you with blog posts. Cool? Also, I’m going to start taking outfit pictures again. I promise. Scout’s honor.
Have a happy weekend everyone!
