Stoop Sale Finds

23 Aug

 Like any other weekend the hubby and I started our Saturday with a quick drive around town checking out the local stoop sales.  This weekend proved to be a particularly fruitful one considering the awesome finds I came home with.  The find of particular note was the seamstress dress form my hubs bought for me at one of the sales for only $5, which I used to display my finds in these photos. 

Military Jacket- I was looking for one of these being it's a continuing fall trend. Lucky find.

Wrap Dress: It's this funky sweatshirt type material. Great for fall.

Front of Cocktail Dress

Back of the Cocktail Dress- It has this fantastic, dramatic back.

 In addition to the clothing items I also scored a bunch of belts, an evening clutch, and the hubby got everything from art books to an artists light box.

Pixellated Houndstooth

17 Aug

This dress is probably one of my favorite stoop sale finds… ever.  While at stoop sale this weekend with the hubby, I spotted this sheath dress on a rack and was instantly drawn to the houndstooth pattern.  Little did I realize that up close it actually looks more like pixellated space invaders!  The dress was a size 4 (I’m usually a 6) but it was only $5 so I took the plunge and decided to buy it.  So glad I did, the thing fits like a glove! 

As a happy bonus I guess I’m now a size 4. 

What I’m Wearing:

Dress: Stoop Sale Find- Jessica Simpson (who knew she had a clothing line?  I didn’t!)
Earrings: Bejeweled (the old store on Graham Ave)
Heels: Payless

It’s Hawt Outside

I knew it was going to be in the upper 90’s today so I dressed appropriately.  Easy breezy.  On my drive home my car thermometer reached 98 degrees, which may or may not be accurate but hell that’s freaking hot!

Finally got my presentation completed for the big day tomorrow, so when I got home I enjoyed some takeout with the hubby and furbabies and watched of all movies the Blind Slide.  And get this, I actually enjoyed it.  Damn you feel good movies!

Crazy freaking day planned for tomorrow between the big EVP visit as well as a bunch of errands I have to run after work.  Wish me luck!

Adios I better catch some zzzz’s.

What I’m Wearing:

Dress: Yard Sale Find, originally from Target I think
Shoes: Target
Sunglasses: Simply Vera for Kohl’s
Earrings: Accessories Shop whose name I can’t remember on 14th street in NYC, I think they’re out of business.
