Fall is in the air

I am very proud to say I haven't bought any brand new anything this month (ok I did get my new iPhone but I sold my old one for $200), only second hand.  It feels amazing to save so much money and get such cute and unique things to wear.  Check out my first fall outfit.

 Aren't the sleeves sweet?
 I am digging these little scarves.

I do have a weakness for shoes but I own so many pairs I could never buy any again and would have plenty for every outfit in my closet.  These Coach boots were a present to myself last winter.  They are super warm and comfy.

  • Dress $6
  • tights we love color
  • belt $3
  • boots (a lot)
  • scarf $1 
  • Peetee was $200 to a shelter and worth every penny.

OMG I need those super cosy looking boots. It seems to have skipped Autumn and gone straight to winter here. Also, you can never have enough scarves. Xx

Fan-freaking-tastic! I love that dress, the length, the ruffles, the colour, the woman in it! Those boots were worth every penny and Peetee is priceless!!!
You are the queen of the bargain hunters. Who needs retail? Any fool can buy a dress from a shop, only a truly stylish person can find something for cents and make it their own.
I'm so glad to have found you, you make my world a better place.
LOVe YA! xxxxxxxxxxx

Hey, congratulations on a secondhand month!
Vix and Helga are so right, there is such joy to be had from finding something pre-loved, for very little money, and putting it all together in your own style - et voila, a fabulous outfit!
Peetee is of course THE most wonderful accessory, but your cute scarf and stonking boots are a close second!
I LOVE how you always look so happy in your photos - no Chronic Bitchface for you!! xxxxxx

Great outfit - always so much more satisfying when it's second hand. Wicked tights and boots combo!
