Snow and Shopping

Well, if it's going to be dark and dreary outside, it might as well SNOW! And that's exactly what it's doing at the moment. I know you northern girls don't find this so excited, but for anyone south of the Mason-Dixon it's rare, therefore, fun. I must live a boring life if the weather is my most bloggable subject. On to something more blog-worthy.

Yesterday, I had a shopping day, my last for a while, because starting the first week of February, I'm doing another round of 30 for 30. You know what that means. No shopping for a month. I could really use the ban, too. I've been good about sticking to NNNY, but even second-hand can be expensive.


Yesterday's sojourn began at Garbo's a vintage and resale shop located on the next street over from my apartment. A two story Queen Anne, filled with fabulous frocks. Oh my! I left with this 1950's beauty and a bracelet.


Next stop, Goodwill. They were actually having 50% off the entire store. This is the first time this store has had a sale since I started shopping there. Skirts for $2.00 and the dress for $2.50. The skirts need to be shortened. The dress is entire too big, but I have big alternation plans for it. One word: eyelet.


My last stop was Celery, a high-end resale boutique. We're talking $1000 Chanel suits. Luckily they do have some more budget friendly items, like this UO skirt and Anthro jacket.
