I was downtown on my way home from a meeting and I somehow found myself in Madewell, where they were having a sale -- spend over $125, get 25% off. I've been eyeing this gray dress for literally months -- it's more than I usually spend on one item of clothing, but I can't seem to break its spell on me. After hemming and hawing in the store for about 20 minutes, I decided to go for it, but it didn't quite put me over the price limit so I bought a set of five rings, too. In the end, I basically got both for about a dollar more than the dress would have been on it's own. (Thanks Pops, for teaching me percentages when I was young -- I totally see their everyday value now!) So far, so good -- a purchase I've been considering since December and some jewelry that won't take up much room if shipped.
But then... I dunno. I just kinda had to swing by Goodwill? And then I just kinda had to buy all these things:
From left to right:
- Amazing, crazy, perfect vintage sundress: $15: Look at that pattern! Look at those colors! Plus, it actually was my size and not tiiiiny or huuuge, like most of the vintage pieces I find these days. At $15, it was more than I like to spend at Goodwill, but I couldn't walk away.
- Red leather fringe earrings: $2
- Turquoise and gold bracelet: $2
- Vintage leather belt: $2
- Anthro-esque necklace that makes me feel like a crazy art teacher: $4
- Super soft pink ombre scarf: Still with Target tags, $3
- Actual anthro comfy t with a weiiiiird pattern: $4. Why do I love weird clothes so much?
- Retro vintage skirt / blanket situation: $7. This plus ankle boots plus a winter hat? Yes please.
- Cat: Not from Goodwill; that's Lady Sister Elizabeth Lemonsauce (we call her Little for short, since her sister is much, much bigger).
This dress, though. Look at it! It's perfect.
