Yeah, I'm on a tear to attempt to buy all unconsumables from second hand sources. I say attempt because there are limits to the cause of saving and reusing. Anything in the undergarments or at all near the netheryaya region is out. I already see that
As women, we want to be economical and smart in our shopping, but we still want
to look good. And, there is a certain victorious thrill when you find
something really wonderful for almost nothing.
In the never ending quest for that something fabulous, on my last trip to the Goodwill I found a black velvet midi skirt in perfect condition (wearable for work or for a schmancy night on the town!) for 2 dollars, two cereal bowls from the 1950s that match some old' coffee cups I inherited from my parents for 40 cents a piece and, a paperback copy of Sabbath by Wayne Muller for 50 cents. The most awesome part is when someone compliments your outfit and you know you pulled the whole thing together for 3 bucks. Score!!! My style inspiration comes from Auntie Mame, Laura Petrie and Jane Hathaway. Sort of nun meets librarian meets party hopper. I break out my most recent purchase tonight at an Ana Moura Fado concert in Minneapolis. May the velvet be with you!
