Consignment-ing

{ tucked }                                                                   { untucked }

On the weekend, I went with some friends (SD & ED) to a consignment shop in an up-and-coming (rich) neighbourhood.  She'd been a few weeks earlier and raved about the Coach, Badgley Mischka & Louis Vuitton she'd seen (at much cheaper prices, of course).  This time didn't seem as fruitful (or so they said), but I still managed to get this fantastic Lily Pulizter top and they picked up a couple things along with some great pumps.

I didn't purchase the Club Monaco tweed skirt
in the picture, but certainly was tempted.

Ooo, that is too fun! The top looks great both ways but I certainly like the va-va-voom of the untucked way. This looks so fun- you seem to have such great consignment stores around you!!! PS I like your phone :)

that top is fab!

i am not so great at thrift store shopping, especially if the place is a MESS. gah. i have no patience for that. but i usually go straight for the jewelry and hope to find something super.
