Thriftanista Style File: Tulle dress, chevron coat, Weitzman pumps

Last night I attended Shecky's Girls Night Out so I wasn't able to post. This was my first time going. I had an ok time. I went solo. If I go again, I'll have to bring friends, flats, water, a snack and come earlier so I can partake of the complimentary beauty services.

What I Wore

I like this dress a lot. I'm sure you already know why but I'll tell you anyway. It's PURPLE. It's washable. It's cotton and comfy. It's thrifted. It's from Tulle too. I have a couple of dresses from them. The sales are very budget friendly.

I also pulled out my favorite thrift store find -- the chevron jacket and the Stuart Weitzman pumps. I still don't know if I like them or not. I think it's the bow that's throwing me off. I like bows but not sure this bow belongs on this shoe. It's syrupy. Does that make any sense to you?

I'm also "posed up" with my new old vintage Fendi. Every time I glance at it, I start singing LL Cool J's Around the Way Girl in my head. Love the bag but it's a bit impractical for my lifestyle (i.e. mom sack) right now so I have it in my Etsy shop with a price tag that would make it easier for me to part with.

What do you hold on to even though you know it's going to get dusty in your closet?
Have you been to a Shecky's event? What did you think?




What I Bought

I never buy things at shopping events that I have to pay to enter. I saw these and fell in love. Aren't they  cute? I couldn't decide which one to get so I got both. You can check out other pieces from the collection at Jay Clay Jewelry.



What Was in the Goodie Bag

I used the Miss Jessie's on V's hair today and I love the way it smells. Everything else is still in the bag. I'm really excited about the wine stopper though. You can store wine horizontally with this cap!  I also want to try the press on nails. I wonder if they have improved since my tween days. I was most surprised by the astroglide in the bag. Huhh! My inner prude gasps when she saw it and clutched at her pearls that aren't really there. O dear! That's all I'm going to say about that. Happy Friday!

I have a pendant that looks similar to the Onyx ring that comes up on the website. I'll have to polish it up to wear it soon!
