Green peplum off shoulder top

It’s been weeks, ya’ll. Weeks since I’ve posted anything on here. My desktop computer crashed and I ordered a hard drive and then started the process of recovering it so I can use photos, ect on my lap top. But, I’m back. I’m sure you all missed me!

On to the fashion. From a few weeks ago. Moving into spring in a green off shoulder peplum top with a fun twisted chain detail at the top and super soft stretchy jeans. I found these at Goodwill. Meant to use them as a project to cut off and fray the hem, but I liked them so much just they way they were that I didn’t want to cut them and fray the hem. Instead, I have a pair with a broken side zipper I decided to cut the side zippers off and fray those along the edge. Re-purposing the old and enjoying the new ones!

The top is old, end of season off the clearance racks at Kohl’s. Can’t remember what I paid for it, but I tend to shop there with $5 or $10 off coupons + a discount percentage off, so I get things for a super good deal off the clearance racks. Yep.That’s how I roll. Trying to make clearance rack clothing even cheaper. Ha.

The blue velvet shoes were on clearance at Ross, not sure where the white sweater jacket came from. I believe someone gave it to me. Kate Spade New York handbag was a gift from Kate Spade New York last year, because they are awesome. Or because I am. Not sure which. Hmmm. Hahaha.

In the meantime, my mom finished up her radiation treatments in early March and will get her next cat scan in early May. She gets two months off for good behavior, or some such thing, in between. (Radiation is pretty hard on your body, so she is given 8 weeks off to recuperate.) Keep her in your prayers as she’s still battling this awful disease called cancer.

Recently, I decided to buy some R-Alpha Lipoic Acid because a friend sent me an article about it healing up nerves and nephropathy, kidney’s, livers and even cancer. I think the article was sent to me regarding my moms cancer, but as I was reading it helps heal nerves and I have a sciatic nerve problem, I decided to give it a go for myself and be the guinea pig for anyone else among my family or friends in need of healing. I’ll update you at some point down the road so you can find out if it worked. I am taking it with a B-complex as it said it could deplete your vitamin B levels. Fingers crossed that I can be healed of my sciatic nerve pain rather than taking Amitriptyline to relax my nerves for the rest of my days…

Goodwill hunting

I’ve been on a bit of a thrift store kick lately. This is not normal for me. Usually I’d only drop in a Goodwill store once or twice a year, but I’ve been several times over the past month and a half.

It may have started when someone I was on the set of Shrill doing background acting work with mentioned that she wished she could remember the pattern for their half off colors. She had a friend who used to work for Goodwill, and had been told at some point what the pattern was but now she couldn’t remember anymore. Ha! I knew there was a pattern, but a friend told me they probably mix it up randomly when I mentioned they might have a pattern. So, off I’ve been for the past 6 weeks trying to crack the pattern for the half off merchandise.

The first week I went it was Blue, the next Green. I was sure it was backwards rainbow colors at this point, even thought there are no orange tags, but the next week the color was Purple. Then they went to Red, then yellow. And again, at this point, I was sure I knew which color was next because the only color left was pink. Nope. Wrong again. They skip pink entirely and then went right back to Blue. I’m guessing, since some of the pink tagged merchandise looks like brand new or name brand, they probably skip that color entirely and never put it on half off. So, there, I cracked the pattern. Next week will be green again. I know, any thrifty people out there will thank me later, right?

You’ll have to guess which items I got that were from Goodwill in this week’s outfit.

Here’s the scoop: the sweater was a Goodwill find for only $3.49 on a half off day for that color tag. The tassel earrings along with the little butterfly ones were also a Goodwill find for $2.49 for both pairs (together) on a half off day for their color tag. The brown puffer vest was given to me from a friend. The jeans were on clearance at Kohl’s. The socks were on clearance at Marshall’s, while the sunglasses were from Ross as well as the shoulder bag. The taupe combat boots were free – won in an affiliate marketing contest a few years ago with a company I work for. Also, the wedge sandals worn last week here were found at Goodwill for only $3.99 on a half off day for their color tag. The only question now is to see if I can stop going in there every week or if I’m addicted to thrifting at this point.
