Pillowcase Gifts…and other fun things

Clockwise:

Gap navy blue skinny capri khakis, stitching down the front leg, just my size (and taste)! $5.99

Vintage Couture wall art, just my taste! $gifted from my Mom, the original goodwill-aholic {and role model}.

New from Target black Champion fleece jacket, $12

Purple and orange Avia workout pullover hoodie, $3

New from Target brown faux leather boots, just my size, $15

I wore the top outfit to work today, and thought I’d share it with y’all!  The pants and boots were purchased within the past two months at my local Goodwill boutique.

The wall art was sitting on my bed waiting for me when I got home as a gift from my dear Mom.  She knows of my love for all things Vintage and Couture, and so found it hard not to snap these up for me.  Not much better than coming home to gifts sitting on your pillowcase, am I right?

The black fleece has served me very well in my homecoming in September to CT and to a very harsh winter.  I came home from warm TN with not much winter wear to speak of, and Goodwill (plus some great Christmas sales at Old Navy) have helped stock me back up.

Lastly, the Avia workout top was another of my purchases I bought with the grouping I blogged about last night, in “A Smattering of Things”.  I knew there was something missing in that post!  The morning I found and purchased this top, I said to  myself, “I need a workout pullover for when I go to the gym or want to run outside with my dog…”

(I just happen to have an adorable picture of him.  Baker Jones.  Black lab/Shepherd extraordinairre.  Look, I can spell extraordinairre:)

and in true Goodwill fashion, I found one.  I love when that happens.

Lastly, I will share with you some action shots of my new Forever XXI cropped knitted sweater:

(You see?  Way in the corner….:)  Watching my adorable and crazy nephew Luke,

and after a wonderful last minute potluck dinner with friends in the second.  It’s versatile enough for both events.  The mark of a great sweater.

The gal on the left is my thrifting compatriot:)  Her pants (which you can’t see…because I smartly deleted the picture in which you could…) are White House Black Market from Goodwill, for less than $10.  You’ll have to take my word that they look great.

Thanks for stopping by!  Please share with me your finds and thoughts and go out and support shopping second hand, good causes, and saving money!  Experience the thrill of the hunt:)
