Thrifted Treasure: Purple Blouse, Shoes and a YSL Belt

Quick Thrift Adventure Story

Stood in a really long line for about an hour to attend eDropoff's Charity Sale (buy a bag for $20 fill it with gently used designer merchandise). They sold out! I didn't get in at all. I didn't have an opportunity to fondle the merchandise. Super sad. The end.

What I'm Wearing

The blouse I'm wearing has a really ruffled collar that extends down the button front. Unfortunately, it's too tight for me to wear it buttoned. I know I don't have a fat neck. Fat arms? Yes. More than ample breast? Yes. Neck? No. It's petite sized so maybe that explains the neck tightness. It's a bit tight in the bust too so I can't button it all the way up without without the ruffle looking all wonky. I'll just have to love it for the cute purple design motif.

The pumps are purple. Need I say more? I do? OK. They also have a low heel and soft italian leather. The pointy toe isn't uncomfortable at all. I can wear these to the store while pushing the stroller.

I bought the belt because of the gold tone metal accents on each side of the belt. It's a part of a haul. It claims to be YSL but I'm 99% sure it's "inspired".

I started out wearing the belt on the jeans with the shirt tucked. I could see a little muffin so I untucked. I like it better this way. It's much more flattering (and comfortable). I'll probably use one of the stretchy belts next time though.



Have you ever stood in a long line for more than an hour? What was it for? Was it worth your time?
Tucked or Untucked? What is your preference?

I have. I am a Black Friday junky and have stood in line for an hour in the cold to get in a Coach store and bought nothing.

Untucked. I don't tuck my son's shirts in either unless he is dressed up and it drives my dad crazy. New age mother he calls me.

Except for roller coaster lines, and waiting to see David Letterman in Chicago (we had tickets), I really work to avoid waiting in lines. But then, I also hate shopping, so put the two together and...shudder...

Love purple = love the ootd! Ah ... you reminded me ... my daughter & went into a shoe store that was closing ; she grabbed shoes and shoes and shoes and - the line was the length of the inside of the store. BUT there were chairs! So we figured we would take turns one standing, one sitting ...well, as I was sitting, I was realizing that I was eye level with a gangbanger and his g/f doing it clothed in an aisle and possibly he was also hurting her. Oh boy! All we want is some dammed shoes! I got up, walked over to my daughter, took the shoes, and said, "NO - don't sit -go outside and smoke - I"M FINE!" She was like - what is up w/ my mom?! but I couldn't fill her in on the eye-catching details until we left ;-

@Sarah Frills4Thrills thanks! If you haven't already figured it out, it's my favorite color. :)

@Mimi aww man. Wait you're in the south. Cold? What's cold? Next year, I'm going to be prepared for this event and get in line real early, layer up, and bring a thermos.

@Ellen Stewart (aka Ellie/El/e/Mrs. Seaman) shopping is probably the only thing I would stand in line for and it has to be thrift prices. O I did stand in line for Oprah. Yes, shopping and Oprah.

@Jeannee o wow! That is an adventure.
