Anywho..so yesterday I realized that I left my need to find funeral clothes really late. I mean really?? Try and outfit myself in one day, on the cheap? Yeah right.
I dropped the kids to school and got on my way..first stop? A big thrift shop here in town that's like a department store(no, not Value Village, I REALLLLLY dislike them!)
And guess what?! I scored BIG. I actually got my entire funeral outfit PLUS MORE for $59. I have clothing that FITS me, and I didn't even *sniffle* I bit. I may have even smiled the WHOLE time!!
(seriously, this is a MAJOR feat!)
Here's my funeral outfit..sweet black Jessica dress, calf-length on me, i love it - $12...adorable little Jessica grey cardigan - $6...worn once maybe Madden Girl shoes - $5...Outfit total: $23!!
And then I lucked out and found more clothing that totally works for me! woohoo!
I absolutely LOVE the sweater on the left. It literally makes me grin with giddiness, it's soooo soft and wonderful!! $10...and the jacket-thing on the right is just all shades of wonderful. It reminds me of something I would drool over at Lululemon. It's made of a matte black workoutwear material, but it's long sleeved(as in covers my hand which i LOVE) and it also covers my big ol' tush(which is also a BIG bonus!) $8!
Sweet brand new tags-on Joe tshirt..love the soft loose style and I love the puckery neckline $6...and the blouse on the right was just an added bonus, it's not usually like me to wear a blouse because they NEVER fit me right..they usually gap between the buttons or are too tight around the belly or they're the opposite and just look HUGE on me..but I LOVE this one and it was $4! It'll be great for work, even though I like to wear sweaters/cardigans there, because it's a wool shoppe.
So yay..i'm a happy girl and I spent $59 tax in!(i bought my girl a couple books too)
What do you think??
