So, I talk often about shopping at the wonderful consignment stores in my city. We are lucky to have some really great ones in Louisville. I have two favorites that I stop into regularly. One is a chain called Clothes Mentor. The other is a locally owned shop called Sassy Fox. If you are local it is in the heart of St. Matthews on Chenoweth Lane. They have great stuff! They regularly have Lululemon, Tory Burch brand new shoes, like new handbags, lots of clothes with tags still on, and I could go on and on.
They have great sales, too. As the season goes on, they mark particular color tags down. I stopped in a week ago on Thursday afternoon when they also had a ladies night additional 10% off and I had a $5 off a purchase of $25 coupon from them. I found two great things that ended up being 35% off each.
Did I need anything? No, probably not, but I am building my fall and winter wardrobe and I will be selling and donating a few things that no longer fit my taste. Also, when shopping consignment you have to jump when you find good things… or so I tell my husband.
First up I found a new with tags wine colored poncho with sleeve-type holes sewn in. If you can find a wrap with sleeves, they are much more wearable. The front is a suede like material and the back is a sweater material. They had a second one on the rack. Original price $97. I got it for $21. I thought this would look nice with my new black floppy hat for when I am frolicking in the leaves this fall with a Starbuck’s PSL in hand! Or, maybe that is a vision for my fake life!
Second up I found these Lysse brand (original price $77)new with tags black pull on jeans. I got these for $16.
I wore these together to school the very next day! You might remember it from yesterday’s post here!
Yesterday I took 71 of my students on a field trip and they had to dress up because we went to a nice performance. Many of my senior girls know about my blog so I wanted to show you teen girl fashion. There were a lot of skirts with buttons up the front that have a seventies vibe. Aren’t they cute?
Hope you have a great Thursday!
