Vintage Necklaces

Vintage Necklaces,
the kind our grandmothers wore back in the 1940's and 50's.
Since clothing can get expensive, a great way to change how an outfit looks and how you present yourself in it is by what type of accessories you wear.
Necklaces don't have to be matchy matchy.. (is that even a word ;) )
Pile a whole bunch on!
The more the merrier..
I found all three of these at Goodwill..
Great place to look for accessories like this..
Makes me wonder what ever happened to all of my grandma Bessies great necklaces, I used to play dress up with as a little girl..

Hip and Charitible

I am a sucker for anything poppies.
But when I saw this bag I knew I had to have it..
I really had to have it when the price is only 10$ and $6.24 of that ten goes to Breast Cancer research..
Go and Get yourself one!!!

In This Economic Crisis..Every Penny Counts

Those who follow my blog, know I like to find a deal.. Today's deal was at Goodwill, where I hunt down designer bags, brand new clothing and other various items.. I was bored and headed there today, just trying to find something "interesting".. Well I found it.. A new holiday skirt and new holiday cardigan sweater.. Not to wear together, because too much sequin can be a bad thing.. So 80's Knots Landing you know..

Skirt $3.69 plus Sweater $4.59= $8.28 plus tax.

How do you pinch your pennies, when it comes to clothing?

Fall's Must Have....

This autumn as I scour through the fashion magazines, one things stands out besides the skinny jeans (that only a select few can pull off) is the cardigan!!!

I started digging around in my closet to see how many I had.. To my horror I had a couple and in non basic colors and a couple in basic colors.. Don't get me wrong I LOVE the sky blue and hot pink ones I have, but it is always good to have your neutrals to match everything..

I am all about all diffrent types of cardigans, so I am giving examples of what to be on the lookout for. Long, short, bell sleeved, cashmere, polyester I love them all!

I have highlighted a few of my favs from (in order) DownEast Basics, Metrostyle and Newport News.
