Yesterday I bought these 7 For All Mankind floral jeans at Clothes Mentor (local consignment store). When I woke up this morning I was excited to wear someone else's junk...which is now my treasure! I am in a casual mood today so I decided to throw this on with a pair of flip top Chucks! I started with my jeans and shoes and the rest fell into place. I really like the sweater with these jeans...it adds interest by adding another print with the polkadots. Its not competing because it is on a small neutral scale. What do you think about this outfit? Do you like the combo of the prints?
Love my flip top Chucks!
I was shopping at Clothes Mentor here in Lexington ( they just expanded-go check it out). I go there 1-2x a week to check out their treasures. When I walked into the store this shirt immediately caught my eye. I love the color and the detail. I have a larger chest so I am always looking for shirts that camouflage it. I picked it up and it is a JCrew blouse and the price was a whopping $8.00. That was enough for me to try it on. I discovered what I already predicted that it was going to be way too big for me. So this is what went through my head....It is huge in the chest, the color is spectacular, and so is the detail...I can't afford this in the store at regular price, it fits my hips...I have 7 days to return it...I will take it to my tailor and see if they can make it work for me. So I bought it, took it to the tailor, and here is the final result. It cost me $20 to get it tailored. Grand total $28 for the shirt. Regular price would be $128. The great thing about this shirt is I can dress it up or down so I will get a lot of use out of it. In the end....I have a beautiful great fitting shirt for a price I can afford. Have you ever thought about buying something and tailoring it to be a perfect fit. Think outside the box. You might find some amazing treasures.
