A BLOUSE BY ANY OTHER NAME…
I always feel a little Shakespeare-y in this blouse.
Even when I’m on the morning news.
I found it in NYC and fell in love, even before I realized how great a deal I was getting.
Most Elizabeth and James blouses retail for between $200-$300. But I found this one at the Buffalo Exchange in the East Village for $20!
For my interview with the stars of the upcoming movie DIVERGENT, I came up with some pertinent questions and prepared to be serious.
An impossibility, with Miles Teller and Jai Courtney.
2/3 of our interview is un-airable. But those are my favorite ones!
Now to the point of this blog:
My outfit was a blend of retail and resale. My top is from Necessary Clothing in NYC ($20,) but I thrifted my faux leather H&M skirt, new with tags, from Seattle Goodwill ($10.)
Some days, I do entertainment segments for our morning news show.
Some days, I wear outfits that were entirely thrifted.
Today, I did both!
Blue statement necklace: $6.99 at Seattle Goodwill, Ballard location
Talora for Nordstrom dress, made in Italy, brand new: $10 at Seattle Goodwill, SLU location (on a half-price tag day!)
I HEART YOU, BRACELET
Picked up this darling heart bangle for an even darling-er price!
$6.99 at Seattle Goodwill (Ballard location)
Yay for re-sale love!
HAPPY USED YEAR!
The end of 2013 was pretty hectic, so I hope you’ll excuse my recent absence. (I also hope you’ll tolerate the barrage of posts soon to come.)
We’ll start with this dress, a vintage Nicole Miller circa 1980-something based on the shoulder pads I removed. (Trust me. It’s better without the shoulder pads.)
Usually I’m intimidated by such a bold print, but I thought the graffiti stars were sort of perfect.
Did I mention the price was also perfect?
Thanks, Everett Goodwill!
Here’s to an equally thrifty 2014!

LUMBERJACK FOR LESS
In the PNW, cutting down your own Christmas tree is officially called “U-CUT” and practically the law.
It was raining when we went to the farm, so I used my new fun rain boots!
$15 at Seattle Goodwill - but I got them for half-price, so I only spent $7.50!
BIG OL’ BAG
FINALLY - this is the bag I bought at the Goodwill Glitter sale a couple of weeks ago!
It’s a bucket by Italian designer Nazareno Gabrielli (but since I got it for $10, it’s likely faux.)
I still loves it, though! As evidenced by the way I can’t take my eyes off it in this picture, courtesy of photographer Ava Van!
A WINTER’S TALE
It’s 37 degrees outside.
So clearly, I needed these Italian-made Michael Kors strappy nude heels.
(They were $13 at Seattle Goodwill. So, CLEARLY.)
VINCE, FOR THE WIN
Sometimes, you thrift something and feel good.
Sometimes, you thrift something and feel great.
And sometimes, you thrift something and THERE SHOULD BE FIREWORKS AND CIRCUS PERFORMERS TO CELEBRATE YOUR AMAZING PURCHASE.
For instance, this flawless Vince tunic. Retail, it sells for hundreds of dollars. But I thrifted it for $15!
I also picked up this adorable silver bird necklace for $2.50 (originally $5, but it had a half-price tag!)
