Dangerous. I know.
Unnecessary. That too. I am not supposed to be shopping for Like-to-Have or Wants. Only Necessities.
Today I stopped at a little local charity shop and walked away smiling. It was almost like the IKEA commercial...."Start the car! Start the car!"
Three birthday gifts for three teen nieces plus a couple little items for me.
Whoever thought that a little "hole in the wall" shop would produce high end, brand name and designer items, un-worn, two for the price of three and just waiting to come home with me!
Not one, but three, Juicy Couture handbags (for the nieces....they're a little too flashy for me). These little numbers had a price tag of $10...not bad compared to an original price tag of $198.
Then these vintage inspired mary jane shoes by Sofft jumped off the shelf and right on to my tootsies. Get this...they're not red! You all know I have a penchant for red shoes. To me, a red shoe is a neutral. Red shoes....have you not seen Chocolat? I love that movie. One of my all time favorites. Ummmm....am I off topic here?
Anyway, these retro-vibed cuties are black, Sofft, and fabulous! $5, never been worn compared to $98 original price. Where would a SAHM wear such sweet shoes? Why, in the kitchen of course! Just wait until I have sewn a sweet apron to complete the look.
Do you ever consignment shop? A favorite haunt?
Wouldn't be caught dead?
Now, promise me you'll keep my little secret. Shhhh! I'm a couture girl at 5 & Dime prices!
