Once again I had another great day at the Housing Works Warehouse BUY THE BAG Sale this past Saturday, December 3rd. While I didn’t score as much as I did the last time, I did get some really nice stuff. 28 items for $25 (that’s about .89 cents per item).
I don’t own many summer dresses that I can just throw on and get up and go….so I’ve been on a mission to get some cute ones for a say a quick weekend trip.
Fellow shoppers at the BUY THE BAG can be helpful towards the end once they’re separating their items and deciding what to take for their final purchases….so be sure to make friends 🙂 This woman (who I later gave a real full length fur coat that didn’t fit me) walks right up to me and proceeds to start dressing me in the red coat above. I mean, she’s buttoning up the collar, fastening my belt and going on and on about how great this coat would be for me! It was a hilarious site….but I must admit she was right!
Oh….and the fur collared dress coat in the middle, while I have to have the cuffs let out, it’s wonderfully sophisticated and regal-looking on. Can’t wait to wear it!
Top Shop, J. Crew, Banana Republic….all great brands! I always say thrifting is the perfect opportunity to be a little more daring with prints and colors….so I took my own advice and got some fun shells to wear under things.
I took advantage of scoring so many great things for cheap and grabbed a handful of extra items like these Anne Taylor and Banana Republic skirts, to consign. Great items in great condition that happen not to fit me, why not make a couple bucks?!
Club Monaco slacks and 2 nicely tailored blazers…I’d say these were a good find.
I’m almost ashamed to admit how many cardigans I have now (I’m even starting to repeat colors)….but I’m a sucker for a soft one that fits well (it’s the only way I can afford 100% cashmere).
My closet is bursting at the seams, but this is a fabulously frugal way to get lots of great designer pieces (I did peep a Diane von Furstenburg top amidst the rummaging) for a very low, low price. Happy Resourceful Living!
