This was in a live shop recently.
I guess most things will be from now on
because I have so much freakin’ fun doing the live shop feeds.
$9.50 at Buffalo Exchange.
I’m sure I traded some stuff, so didn’t cost me that much direct.
The top is creme.
Love the thick band cuffs and hem.
Wearing with a tank under.
Will be cool in the summer with a skirt and bandeau when the HEAT comes.
Got a hint of that today with 85 degrees.
Also, I think I am succeeding with the bang grow out.
It usually doesn’t take.
Came home to a fern on my porch this evening.
Did a quickie live shop at Buffalo yesterday for something to wear on camera today.
I wanted color and sleeves and did not have that in my closet.
With a $5 coupon, I chose this Zara top for $21 $16.
Looked great on camera, was comfortable and it’s cool.
This is what I look like when I’m happy. (and my boobs are squeezed together)
The sleeves of this thing were the big seller.
Are you hooked up with Those Tricks on Facebook?
Loving the live shopping experience with people
who happen to be sitting on Facebook
at the same time I’m in the dressing room.
Took a bag of trade into Buffalo Exchange today.
The place was lookin’ pretty festive.
Was on the fence about this dress when trying on.
An interesting nubby dress for $10.
Hemline looks very “this year,” but the dress is vintage (judging by tag).
And lookatthosesleeves. Pretty cool.
Also has two cute buttons in the back at the neck.
I ended up getting it after conferring with the facebook team.
Will do a fancier real-camera post so you can see it styled and the back when I wear.
Definitely a lucky break low end production that turned out well.
Weird it wasn’t more like $8.
But very soft cotton.
And though I haven’t been super into the asymmetrical cuts,
I like the flow of this one.
I’ve had this bustier in my closet for a few weeks.
When I found it at Buffalo Exchange, I’d been wanting a bustier top.
This Lucca Couture was perfect.
It’s a tad too big in the bust, but just so good, had to get it.
The occasion to…bust it out (heehee),
came as a happy hour open house I threw last Friday eve.
In celebration of a VERY clean house* and my art collection out on display.
Last Friday night!
Two separate pieces purchased on separate occasions. Lucca Couture bustier top and Cotton On skirt.
Obviously, they’ve been waiting for each other their whole lives.
*The clean house was a result of Hilary from Hilary Inspired photographing my space for her feature “style story.” I got to the piles that had been sitting since move in 6 months ago.
Can’t wait to see the story once published! I’ll let you know…
Another top from the $1.89 out-of-pocket batch.
An Urban Outfitters brand.
Half off of $13.50, but I got it with my trade balance (mostly), so another nearly-free purchase!
This top is awesome because it seems pretty plain and unassuming,
but the back is all cotton mesh.
If you didn’t listen up about Half of Half the last time I mentioned it,
maybe this dress will do the trick.
What a beautiful, burst-of-color, daytime dress…yes?
Honestly - I am still in shock over this deal.
Brand new, no visible flaws. TEN AMERICAN DOLLARS.
The brand is from Dillard’s.
And, much to my surprise, the design and construction is as good
as any designer day dress I’ve ever bought.
Piping. Pleated at the neck. Pockets.
Maybe the fabric won’t hold up as well or somethin’.
Even the belt is substantial and not a cheap afterthought (unlike most of the belts that came with those designer items).
What a great deal.
I feel fancy in this dress.
In a “ladies who lunch” kind of way.
