Suffering For My Closet

My weekend was almost ruined! I had planned to go to "Le Garage Sale," since Thursday and was really looking forward to it. Twice a year at "Le Garage Sale" a bunch of local boutiques get together and hold a garage sale of the past season's fashions to get ready for the new incoming season. Some of the prices were not quite what I'd consider yard sale prices but many of them were quite good and as long as you didn't mind doing a bit of digging and getting naked in front of everyone to try something on, then there were certainly some gems to be found.

But, As I said earlier, my plans were almost foiled! At 3 am Saturday morning I woke up and could not get back to sleep then spent a good amount of the morning throwing up. I was in bed for the rest of the day. (I love my nephew and all, but there are some things I wish he'd keep to himself like this stomach thing and boogers...) When I woke on Sunday, it appeared that everything had settled down a little and even though I knew I wouldn't last long, I was eager to hunt down some bargains. I was not disappointed and here are 2 of the items I found...

This sweater from Twinkle by Wenlan was my first purchase and was 75% off the original price. It can't be seen in this photo but it has big bat wing sleeves and I can't wait to throw it on over a pair of pleather leggings!

This skirt is from Notice. The fabric looks like a heavy brocade but it really isn't. Which means I can wear this with tights and "otk" boots now and when it warms up I'll be sporting it with a pair of strappy heels. Love versatile clothes! And the price tag on this was $15...love that even more!

I was only able to last about an hour and 20 minutes before I began to feel woozy again so I'm sure there was much that I missed and I was hoping to find some footwear but at least I was able to satisfy my need for neutrals! I made a few other purchases as well, but I'm saving them for later.

I hope the weekend went better for everyone else...

Well done for being such a trooper! At last years Harvey Nics sale I saw an amazing sweater but got the swine flu the day I was gonna go get it, once Id recovered the sale had gone and I am still bitter about it LOL! Your sweater is AMAZING!! I bet you can wear ti in so many ways!! Re my Chanel brooch alas it could not be repaired, but I am not too sad as I got the pink brooch instead. x
