Blazer with Sleeveless Trench
During my trip to Arizona, I stopped by my favorite consignment shop in Scottsdale. My Sister's Closet is a great place to find designer names at really reasonable prices. I spent a couple hours there on Friday and came away with three fantastic purchases. I'm actually wearing all three things in this outfit post.
The army green blazer is by Vince(one of my favorite brands!)and it was $17.46. What a steal! The sleeveless trench was a last minute snag. The store is huge and it was really hard to get to every single rack. But I was walking to the dressing room and I saw this trench and squealed with glee. I've been looking for a long vest and I think this sleeveless trench is perfect for the look I've been wanting to create. It's by Calvin Klein and it was a whopping $17.50!
Now onto the bag. I pulled three different cognac bags and made myself decide on only one. I am having serious regret about walking away from the amazing Michael Kors bag I found. But I went for this gorgeous J. Crew bag instead. It's way more practical. I will carry it every day. It's convertible, so I can wear in as a shoulder bag or cross-body bag. And the color is gorgeous. It was $49. A bit pricey for second-hand but the quality is stunning. Like it was never used. So, I was happy to pay that.
I could have bought more but was really proud of myself for being a more discerning shopper. I guess I'm learning. Just because the prices are fab doesn't mean I'll have a place for it in my closet.
