Striped Skirt-Leopard Pumps-Glen Plaid Brown Jacket

November 11, 2012

Before Halloween we went to the Goodwill store in order to find a couple things for our costumes and I wasn't planning to shop for anything but Halloween stuff only. Oh well, five minutes later I forgot what I was there for and I couldn't help go through the jacket racks and hopefully this time be surprised with a Chanel or YSL jacket carelessly hanging there. Yeah..I keep hoping one day some wealthy woman mistakenly threw her high-end designer jacket into the donation bag instead of the dry-cleaner I did with a brand new Gap shirt a while back...grrrrr. I must confess that I even have my sweet guy trained and every time he sees a tweed jacket hanging on a rack he shouts "hey look, a Chanel!!!" lol.  Anyways, of course I didn't find a Chanel jacket, however, I found a nice glen plaid Ralph Lauren jacket in incredible condition (my luck again) for $5.00. My mind went loco thinking of many ways (skinny jeans, skirts, maxi skirts, etc., etc.) I could wear that jacket this Fall.
I also found in our local Marshall's store a simple black leather Juicy Couture clutch...I even could call it an iPad case, but I am not ready to retire my snake print/neon Marc Jacobs right now, so I will use the JC as a clutch for now.
Well, let me know what you think about my finds and by the way, I love the sunlight orbs in these pictures. Some people say they are ghosts floating in the, but if you're curious like I can read about it HERE

Antes que llegara el día de brujas, fuimos a la famosa tienda de segundas Goodwill para buscar prendas para completar nuestros disfraces. Mi plan era no comprar otra cosa más que lo que andabamos buscando. Pero que vá, cinco minutos pasaron y se me olvidó a lo había ido y cuando menos acordé estaba curioseando entre las chaquetas siempre esperando encontrar una Chanel o YSL. Si todavía no pierdo la esperanza que una señora ricachona erroneamente tire su chaqueta Chanel en la bolsa de donación en vez de la del Dry-clean como yo lo hice con una camisa nuevecita del Gap...grrrrr.
Les confieso que ya tengo entrenado a mi adorado tormento...cada vez que él mira una chaqueta de lana cruzada colgada en una tienda me grita "Amor una chaqueta Chanel!!" ja ja. Bueno, para no hacer la historia larga, claro que no encontré la Chanel, pero si encontré una chaqueta Ralph Lauren, de color café y con un estampado de cuadros diminutos. Y con buena suerte siempre, la encontré como nueva por solo $5.00. La mente se me escapó pensando en las muchas formas (faldas, pantalones, maxis..etc) que podré llevarla este otoño.
Bueno, mi otra adquisición fué de la tienda Marshalls. Una cartera Juicy Couture de cuero negro con metal dorado, que parece que puede usarse como funda para Ipad, pero no estoy lista para despedir la que tengo de Marc Jacobs con estampado de serpiente y detalles neón. Así que usaré esta como bolso de mano por ahora.

Bueno, no sean penosas y tiren me un comentario por allí. Y a propósito  me encantan las esferas de la luz del sol en estas fotos, algunos creen que son fantasmas volando en el, si quieres leer un poco del asunto AQUI está un vínculo con la historia.
