My ex-coworker Rekha and I went shopping at the WIN Warehouse store (recently renamed WIN Resale, I notice) after work today, then out for Thai food for dinner. What a lovely shopping date! We chatted about clothes, joked about silly dated pieces, gossiped a bit and both dashed to the fitting rooms when they did "last call." She found a lovely black and white polka-dotted dress for $9.95, and I might have found a couple of things...
They are black suede, cobalt blue corduroy-ridged suede, and silver matte leather.
They've had a bit of wear, but are in generally good shape. The size is marked as a 41 (US approx. 10.5 or 11), but they fit more like a 9.5 or 10. They're made in Italy, and they were $29.95.
I spotted this rich bright orange when we were browsing through the skirts.
Not bad, $29.95 for Diane von Furstenberg.
Yup, good label. I could probably wash this, even though it says "dry clean only". It's not lined.
Of course, I checked the construction. Look at those nice seams!
I have a very quiet weekend planned, but will be back on Sunday. Stay awesome, my friends!
Love that jacket on you, it is so flattering and stylish.ReplyDelete
Love love love this outfit!ReplyDelete
I love your jungle floral print flats-they look very stylish & comfy. Your new tri-colour Marc Jacobs shoes are amazing! Love the colours & textures. Gorgeous! Hope you're having a great weekend! XXX SashaReplyDelete
They are so comfy, but did rub a bit walking home. I'm in lurve with the shoes! Thank you, Sasha!Delete
I love your Friday outfit - the skirt and jacket are perfect together.ReplyDelete
Great score the the DvF dress pretending to be a skirt too! Looking forward to seeing how you wear it :)
Thanks so much, Mica! I bet the "skirt" would have been more if they'd known it was a dress!Delete
Love the pleather skirt. You're a magnet for cool clothes. Seeing what you find makes me want to go shopping with you (again).ReplyDelete
I would love to go shopping with you (again), Ally! I hope you'll make it over to my part of the world again someday!Delete
Hahaha - a skirt that's really a dress, no wonder the fit was a bit wierd! I can't wait to see how this looks on.ReplyDelete
It's a stunner! I already have the outfit planned...Delete
What a cool DVF skirt or actually dress ;) The Marc Jacobs pumps were also a great find.ReplyDelete
That perforated pleather skirt makes ME want to touch it too !
I know, it's so awesome - I scored. The skirt feels like pleather - I wish it were leather, but oh well, can't have 'em all.Delete
Love the perforated pleather skirt! I had one that I gave to my duagnter, and she just gave it back, so I may wear mine soon too! Love how you styled it with the cropped jacket and floral shoe!ReplyDelete
And th MJ shoes, what a buy!!
All great buys!
And very chic..
Oh, how nice that you got it back for another round! Thank you so much - I love the fullness of it, and how nice it looks with a fitted top.Delete
Tonight, I peeled off the price tags and found a $78.95 and a $44.95 tag underneath the $29.95 price tag on the shoes - I did even better!
Sheila! What a lovely time we had and such fun when you figured out that the amazing splash of Orange was actually a dress and it looked hot on you! Learnt a few things on thrift shopping too! Thanks. You are amazing :)ReplyDelete
Rekha! Hello, sweetheart! Thank you so much for spending your last day with me. So much fun - we will have to do that again soon! You are fabulous!Delete
The Marc Jacob shoes are sooo pretty! When I see shoes like that it makes me sad I can't wear heels :( I'm interested to see how you style the orange dress.ReplyDelete
I hope you liked how I styled the dress - the shoes were very comfy.Delete
