Happy Fab Finds Friday! The end of the year brought a quick trip to Vegas and of course that means a stop at the Primm outlets. Not only is there a great Kate Spade store, but they were having a 50% off their already outlet prices. What's a girl to do?
This is my new favorite handbag, I know I say that every time, but really, no really, this time it is. OK until next time. But I love it. Handsome bought it for me for Christmas and I'm saving it for Spring.
Next weekend getaway was to San Diego to spend New Years Eve with our friends from Illinois who were there to visit family the week before. They're our travel buds, we meet every summer at some place random so seeing them in the winter and for New Years was an extra treat. There are two constants wherever we go. The first is that we always have fun, whether at a vinyard in Napa or in a Duck boat on Lake Union. The second is that our husbands play golf one day while we shop. Not just ordinary shopping, hunting as I like to call it. We scout the best re-sale shops wherever we go. This trip it was My Sisters Closet in La Jolla . It was huge, it was spotless, the prices were amazingly low and everything I tried on was in mint condition. And I mean like new! (Note to self - 18 items in a fitting room all at once is exhausting.)
This jacket by JG Hook was $12! The fabric is beautiful and I'm a sucker for a short belted jacket, when it's $12 and in mint condition.
Major score, JCrew blazer for $17! It looks brand new inside and out, I'd swear it was never worn. I can't wear either of these because it's 75 degree. Not a complaint by the way.
Then there are these pillows! I had a crush on these a year ago when I saw them in a Ballard Catalog. They were $59 each, way above my throw pillow budget. Then I happen to be in a Tuesday Morning store, not a fan, but someone told me they had good holiday stuff. Well, I didn't get any holiday stuff but I got the pillows for $14 each! When I got home I looked them up on line, same pillows, still $59. Never get tired of the thrill of the hunt.
January is a great month to Get Your Bargain On! Assess your wardrobe and take stock of what's missing. When you get dressed in the morning do you say things like, "I need a black cardigan for this outfit?" Take note of those things and have them with you when you are out hunting. Look for basics on sale now like cozy sweaters, blazers and boots.
