BUT I do not have money for a whole new wardrobe.
Or at least not one from a regular source, like Addition Elle, H&M or Voluptous or Old Navy. And I'm tired of having shapeless formless sweatpant type things from Walmart as my 'entire' wardrobe.
I want some decent stuff.
But even when I do come into some extra cash, I'm trying to be 'thrifty'. We are, after all, trying to save for a trip this winter & hopefully some baby-making assistance in the near future.
So I thought & I thought...
And I donated a tupperware bin full of designer clothes that are too small to my local Value Village
and then... BING! An epiphany!
If I'M donating all this primo stuff that I barely wore (because I sadly outgrew it once I became a happy, cozy & comfortable house wife type:read, I now wear sweats
AND BEHOLD! THERE WERE!
*bonus to shopping at Value Village? Recycling clothes is good for the earth AND your wallet!* So, I only spent $72.29 and this is what I got:
H & M T-shirt dress to wear with leggings - pant style of choice for me to accommodate my tensor bandaged knee - was so unflattering 'cuz 'till now I only had one longer top to wear with them...
Green fleecy high-necked sweatshirt...
me likey, for those comfy loungy days, so I don't have to look so shlumpy....
Danskin sweats - great sturdy material, for those same comfy/shlumpy days...
Dark Rinse 'curvy cut' jeans, to make space for the bootay ;)
I LOOOVE this wooly grey sweater -
the lines are so perfect for my figure, accentuating my smallest part - my waist!
Old Navy long sleeved waffle tee - can never have too many of these.
And this one is in my fave colour! It matches the inner rim of my glasses!
A Big Long comfy sweater - again, to go with my leggings & Uggs..
.Maybe a big braided leather belt...
And, of course my two helpers, Blue & Topper...
making sure that I make the right choices to keep the fashion police away!
And for my next blog post? Look forward to pics of all the fur babies -
in their matching Halloween getups! :)
But for now... what do you think of my shopping spree at Value Village?
