OOTD (No it’s not a couch AD)

This is the outfit I wore to our thrifting extravaganza with two other Minnesota bloggers – Megan and Lauren (make sure to check out their blogs!) Haul post is coming out tomorrow 🙂 Yay! I personally love hauls (posts, videos, pinterest boards!) you name it, I’ll look through it and most likely comment! And I suggest you do the same!

So what’s this outfit made of?

A thrifted $1.50 Banana Republic skirt

Cashmere Lord & Taylor top from a swap in NYC – so FREE!

Boots that I got from Sam a few years ago for Christmas!

My necklace came from a thrift store on the UWS (I hope it’s still there, it was on the corner of Columbus and W 83 rd, same block as Laila Rowe), so if you are there, go check it out!

And the tights came from Filene’s Basement!

And that’s it my lovelies, have a great Tuesday! We are having a 101 Dalmatians party at Day Care today, so I spent 2 hours last night painting these:

Cheers,

Mad Men Style

Hubs and I went to a party on Saturday night, and the theme was Mad Men. I was so so excited to dress 60’s style, well you know how I am! I’m always looking for an excuse to look fancy, especially because I am stuck wearing a uniform of sorts for 5 days a week! A couple weeks ago I posted pics from my thrifting trip to Goodwill in Roseville, and that’s when the finds came in handy! And yes, I was specifically looking for something to wear to that party, and even though I’ve already spilled the beans in that post, here is how it all looked on me 🙂

 

 

And of course a picture of me in my favorite coat (SPOILER: I scored some awesome coats thrifting yesterday with Megan of Mr.C & Me and Lauren of Our Crazy Ever After – don’t forget to check out their blogs!)

So here is what the entire outfit came down to:

My cardigan (originally HWR) – $2.50

My dress (J.Crew) – $3.50

My necklace and earrings were a gift, I also brought my vintage Etra clutch ($3.99 at Salvation Army, but I got it over a year ago, sorry you can’t really see it in the pictures very well :/)

My coat is that Bitten brand by SJParker (around $30), that ceased to exist back in 2008 when Steve & Barry’s went out of business, and the shoes are from TJ Maxx ($20), I think these last two items were the most expensive ones, but keep in mind the fact that I’ve had this coat for 4 years, and shoes for 2!

And the scarf came from Goodwil Outlet, so I am pretty sure it cost under $1!

So there you have it, my $57 outfit!

I also wanted to give a shout out and mention Influenster one more time, I was able to pin my hair up with the Goody Spin Pins I got in my Blogger Vox Box. It was super fast and easy, and I will definitely use the spin pins again!

What did you wear this weekend?

Happy Monday everyone,

OOTD: A ZIG and a ZAG

How do you combine a $4 Adrienne Vittadini  thrifted dress, $10 sale shoes, $6 clearance sweater, a unique handmade jewelry piece, and a $400 Ralph Lauren purse in one outfit?

Here is how:

Hubs and I took the most peaceful walk through the North Loop neighborhood, and then along the River Front here in Minneapolis. The last photo was taken under the Hennepin Ave bridge! I hope you had an awesome Sunday and enjoyed the warm weather in the Cities 🙂

Cheers,
