There are times I buy clothes for an occasion or purpose, like parties, work, vacations. But there are other times when the price is right and the item is just too awesome not to get. The dress above is a prime example. Jcrew Factory had 50% off and the gown, originally $78 was going for $38! The necklace is just too interesting to pass up and together I think they will create a stunning outfit. But where to wear? There are some outfits that call for an occasions and there are others that are an occasion within themselves. For this potential outfit the latter might just be the case. There's nothing wrong with looking fabulous on your back porch having a cocktail.
Speaking of occasions, I have signed up for a workshop on thrift shopping at the Green Tree Libary, Saturday April 28th, you can register here if you're interested. Now it may come as a shock to some of you, but I'm actually not that great of a shopper... It's true! Brick and mortar stores are not my forte, now give me an online retailer and I'm good to go. So, in anticiapation of my NYC (made mention of here) I'm hoping to learn how best to approach an actual store as opposed to a website and hopefully learn a mantra or two for patience, because as a dye-in-the-wool Virgo I have very little of it.
