WWW #48

This is my last WWW post for this year.  I’ve finally finished!!!!  I’m taking the next 2 weeks off after this week. My family is going to Belize the week before Christmas for our vacation this year.  Then the week of Christmas the week between Christmas and New Years I’m taking off and staying home.  I’ve really enjoyed this series though.  I’ll be doing a summary of the year and how I did on not wearing the same thing twice (hint, I didn’t make it actually…but close!)  But, until then, enjoy this last post of the WWW’s for 2012!  I hope you all have a very wonderful New Year and you spend it with those you love.

Ok so we are almost to the end of November now in my outfit posts.  Last Saturday I turned 51 years old.  I just don’t feel 51 though.  I feel like I should be in my 30’s.  Unfortunately my body, my metabolism, my looks, and my image don’t agree with me.  Oh well…Moving on…

This was the week of Thanksgiving so no pictures for Thursday or Friday.  I always take Thursday and Friday off.  I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!

WWW #44

OK, I solved the mystery of why I don’t have photos for the week of November 5.  Actually I don’t have pictures from November 1 – November 10.  The deal is we had a huge go-live at work and we all had to work the floors those days.  We all had to wear a t-shirt they gave us so I didn’t bother to take photos those days.  I just wore the same t-shirt every day that week with a different pair of pants.  Whew…mystery solved!  That’s what I get for waiting for so long to post!

So, it’s almost the end of the year.  My goal is to do a summary post of all of my WWW’s from throughout the year.  We’ll see how well I did on my goals at the beginning of the year.  Before that though, I need to finish the WWW posts.  I can actually do that today because I am not going back to work until the 2nd of January.  I am very behind…yet again…so please bare (or should it be bear) with me while I do a bunch of posts today.

Scarf:  Holiday Happening, a Junior League thingy they have here right about this time of year actually (considering I’m posting this the middle of November).  This scarf is a kind of Burberry knock-off

So, that’s it for this week.  My favorite outfit was the one I wore on Saturday.  I felt very chic and I was so comfortable all day with the layering.  It was 32 degrees when we left the hotel that day and got up to about 55 so the vest was the perfect accessory for the day!

What is your favorite outfit?

Monday, October 22, 2012

A Thriftin’ We Will Go!

Well, have you been thrifting lately?  I have, I have!  Now, before I go any further, I have a confession to make.  My hubs, great that he may be, just does not have my vision!  He doesn’t get it…and in turn sometimes he just doesn’t get me!  Well, finally the clouds broke, the sun beams shined down, and angels sung in harmony…Hot Rod actually liked a couple of my recent thrifts.  Yay me!  First off, I went to an estate sale the other day and found these treasures:

IMG_1500

This crate was $3.00.  It’s kind of an ugly hunter green, but a little spray paint and this will be quite lovely for storage.

IMG_1501

These books were my biggest expenditure because they were $3.50 each.  They are pricey but I chose them based on a couple of things, first off color, second wear, and third age.  I just love using books like this as “height enhancers” for my d├ęcor on shelves or tables.  These books were quite the treasure hunt too.

IMG_1505

I found these old newspaper clippings in the “A Tale of Two Cities” book.  They looked really old.  I couldn’t find a date but the advertisements on them are great!

IMG_1509

I loved the colors in this book.  The cover colors were amazing!  Then I opened it up and found the publish date…

IMG_1510

I guess this is a second edition or something, because the original copywright was 1898 and this one was copywrighted in 1909. 

IMG_1511

It had all kinds of things stuck in the pages, included this Home Mission Bulletin.  I just love finding stuff like this. 

But, Hot Rod wasn’t just thrilled with this stuff, it was the next things I found…

IMG_1517

1967 Playboys!  They are so cool.  Hot Rod just loved them.  He got quite a kick out of the prices of things in advertisements.  Cars for like $750!  Can you believe?  I got 3 of them and really wish I would have bought them all.  They were $5.00 a piece which we found to be the actual value of them, so no real big huge find there but they are in amazing condition and I’m just happy to have them.  Here are the other 2 I got.  I actually chose mine based on the covers.  I thought they were cool.

IMG_1518

I can’t find the hidden bunny on this one…unless the big bunny is the “hidden” one, but I just didn’t think it would be that.  Can you find the hidden bunny?  If so, please tell!

IMG_1519

I did find the hidden bunny on this one…it’s his shoe lace.

This estate sale had so much Christmas stuff including tons of village stuff.  I have been collecting village stuff for years now.  I really loved a few of their things but they were priced just too high in my opinion.  All of their buildings they had priced at $27.50.  Which goes to show you why they were still there.  That’s just too much for those at a used price.  I did find some accessories though for the village that I thought were priced ok so this is what I got from them:

IMG_1512

So, that was my estate sale finds.  Have you found anything cool lately while estate sale shopping?  I’ve decided I really need to get my lazy butt up on Saturdays and start hitting some garage sales.  I need to get to some things before the “professionals” price them at the estate sale!  ha ha ha

Not much to say about this week until the end…I’ll save that for then.

So, I totally love this outfit.  The scarf just pulls it all together.  The shoes ended up matching the pants exactly!  Unfortunately, those shoes were the death of me!  I fell AGAIN!  This time leaving work and right in front of the building.  I was so embarrassed.  I really hurt my right foot too when it twisted so there is no outfit for Friday, I worked from home and kept it up with ice on it.  It’s fine now so no permanent damage…except to my pride.  From now on, I will not be wearing my heels to and from the building.  I’m not giving them up totally though!  I will just wear flats in and out and then change to my heels when I get to my office. 

Pants:  Target, August 2012

Sweater;  Target, 2011

Shirt:  Loft, August 2012

So, even though those shoes killed me I still love this outfit the most for the week.  I really liked the color combo and I felt cute all day!  Which is your favorite?

WWW #40

This weather thing is just hit and miss these days.  One day we will have a perfectly lovely Fall day and then the next it will be like mid summer with temps in the high 90’s!  It makes it hard to dress when I’ve moved my clothes around already and my summer clothes have been relegated to the back closet!  But, I’ve been managing somehow.  So, let’s take a look-see…

Monday:

IMG_1483

This was my attempt at taking a huge fashion jump.  I think I managed ok, not perfect but ok.  The bright pink belt with an otherwise all black and white outfit is what I’m talking about.  I think I pulled it off though.

Blouse:  Target, September 2012

Black Skinnies:  Target, August 2012

Belt:  Target, October 2012

Shoes:  Steve Madden from www.ruelala.com, last month

Jewelry:  Brighton, Target, Stella and Dot, Avon

Tuesday:

IMG_1487

I really liked this outfit.  I paired this shirt with white pants previously but the gray looks really good with it too.

Pants:  Target, August 2012

Shirt:  Avon, July 2012

Shoes:  Boutique 9, from www.ruelala.com in 2011 I think????

Jewelry:  Avon, Brighton, Tiffany’s

Wednesday:

IMG_1492

OK, this outfit I totally stole!  I got my inspiration from HERE

Check her out in her version of this outfit:

teal

This girl has the most amazing outfits and I love just about everything she puts together.  So, I loved this outfit and wanted to copy it.  My problem though is I didn’t have a black and white polka-dot shirt.  I’ve been kind of in trouble for spending too much money lately so I decided to try my hand at finding it thrifting instead.  I went to my local Goodwill one day at lunch and I found it!  It isn’t perfect because it’s short sleeved instead of sleeveless but I managed to make it work anyway.  I think in the future I’ll cut off the sleeves though.  So, I did pretty good huh?  Of course this lady looks so much cuter, thinner, and younger than I do but I still like the outfit.

My version:

Skirt:  Kohls, 2010 I think

Sweater:  New York and Company, 2010

Blouse:  Goodwill, $3.00!!!!  October 2012

Shoes:  DSW, September 2012
