I took the long way home last night and hit the jackpot at a Salvation Army store I'd never been to :)
I bought all of this for $21.45...
This "brand new with tags" top only cost $3.99! It looks awesome with the $4.99 Gap skirt I bought back in July!
I was looking for a brown sweater, but found this BCBG top for $3.99 instead! It looks great with the aforementioned Gap skirt, and the silk leopard print skirt from that same treasure hunt.
I usually avoid horizontal stripes, but I'm tiny, and this Liz Claiborne sweater is cut to flatter. It looks great with jeans and my black suede round toe pumps. Blue tags were 50% off, so I got it for $1.99 :)
Cardigans are a sweet and feminine way to keep warm, but I have a hard time finding ones that aren't too baggy or matronly. I don't love this Lord & Taylor sweater, but for $4.49, it's got a nice shape and will look pretty with a dress or a skirt.
This is the sort of piece I dream of finding at a thrift store! It's vintage and in perfect condition, and it was only $6.99!!! I could not believe my luck!
It's a size 12, which is probably more like a modern size 6. It fits ok, but I think I'm going to have the sleeves and hem shortened, and the whole thing nipped it in a bit through the body. Even with all those alterations, it's still a find of a lifetime :)
I've been fantasizing about this dress for years!!!
