She Giveth And She Taketh
On Wednesday morning I stopped by one of my favorite thrift shops to drop off a bag of stuff.
I had watched Hoarders on Monday night while laying in bed with the hubs and got a slight feeling of anxiety when I compared my quantities of clothing and accessories to these people.
My stuff is neat and organized, with the exception of a few items I can't find room for.
And that's what gave me the anxiety.
Could that be me someday???
I cleaned and organized kids rooms and my attic on Tuesday afternoon and really tried to edit down some of the masses.
I was feeling pretty proud of myself.
Wednesday I ran the bag in, never even taking off my sunglasses.
As I placed it on the floor in the backroom, Jen, the wonderful woman that manages the shop said "Check out the racks. I have Dolce and Gabbana, Christian Dior, Zac Posen and Burberry out there."
You know what I did, right?
I mean, I don't have to explain how I first searched the dress rack, then moved onto the...because you just know how I am.
I found an animal print knit vneck top by D&G and this orange silk shell by Christian Dior.
I passed on the Burberry (a polo shirt) and skipped the bottoms racks entirely since truth be told, I was on my way to a 1st grade picnic.
This blazer is similar to a JCrew one that was sold very recently. Yet mine was a fraction of the price.
I knew the shell would look great with the silk scarf I use as a belt in the summertime.
Oh, and I just won an ebay auction for a great blouse from MouseVox Vintage.
Maybe I will be a hoarder after all.
