Orange crush.

For work, I decided to dress down just a little.   I paired Gap jeans with a beautiful Ann Taylor blazer that I thrifted for $1!  Yes, you did not read incorrectly.  The blazer was marked down to $1.  This outfit has been getting a lot of mileage lately.  I’ve worn it to work, shopping with Kelly, and out and about with my mom.  It’s my new go to outfit.

You couldn’t get this for six quarters.

But I did!   Oh my gosh my fashion darlings.  I had a serious fashion moment this afternoon. Cue Rachel Zoe’s “I died” here. 

I went to get some lunch today with a friend and while I was waiting for my lunch to be ready, I hopped next door to the local thrift store. Oh, that rhymed.  The thrift store benefits a local hospital here in NJ, so I was hoping to find something nice to buy for myself.

As I was meandering around with no particular item in mind, I found the bag.  Marked for $3.00 was a fabulous black Chanel satchel bag.   I squealed– in public.

I’m fully aware that it is a knockoff and I would never try to advertise it any other way…but it’s still ridiculously cute.  I brought it to the register where the nice elderly woman informed me that all bags are half off today. Really? I paid $1.50. Just pinch me.  I think I may have blacked out for a moment!

I kindly let her know that this bag cost less than my lunch today.  I thanked her and then she said, “It looks like you needed a new bag anyway”.  She was insulting my vintage pink crocidle clutch.  ( I will use it until it falls apart in my hand—I love it too much!) Her snide comment could not damper the fashion high I have been on since about noon this afternoon.  I purchased a purse with the spare change in my wallet.  I think that is the ultimate score.
