I got the best buy last weekend. I was browsing the sale rack in Express and came across the most amazing striped blazer. It had no tags, so I asked the sales associate how much it was. He said it is this season’s but since he couldn’t find another jacket, I could have it for the sale price of similar blazers! Score! And I had a $15 gift card, so the final cost was $36! When I got...
Time to Consign!
Several times a year it is beneficial to give a little cleanse to your wardrobe. I’m usually pretty good about it by giving clothes to Goodwill and participating in SwapMaine. But lately I’ve been feeling like it’s time to really purge and completely get rid of excess. And while giving is good, why not try to get some extra cash for it? I figure I’ll start with a...
I’ve been back from Quebec City just over a month and have the most exciting news…I got engaged! Jared totally surprised me on our last day with a proposal in front of the Chateau Frontenac AND a kind stranger who had no idea the turn his role of snapping our picture would take! As our photos show, Jared was trying to catch a picture of the proposal by tricking me into thinking we were...

Black Friday Find
It’s about time I reveal my most fabulous Black Friday steal find! I typically don’t go out for aprés Thanksgiving shopping as I feel I should be enjoying downtime from work and not rushing around. However this year, as the stores were opening at midnight and I was already awake with some friends, we decided to continue our evening with a drive up to Freeport, Maine for their Midnight...

Having in Maine a Great Success
Last Friday was October’s First Friday Artwalk here in Portland. I hadn’t been to an artwalk in awhile, so I was surprised to see numerous street vendors and new galleries that I didn’t know existed on the fringes of Congress Street. While I did want to check everything out, my main goal was to visit the Maine Historical Society and see the two Maine related fashion exhibits. ...
I just love finding little trinkets at thrift shops. I always wonder what their past lives where like––where they lived, what type of people owned them, and how far they have traveled. I found these little glass magnets at a thrift shop named Frugal Suzy’s in Camden, Maine during a recent wedding weekend. I loved the vintage floral patterns and one even has a little bird which is...
Nice, my first personal blog post! I’m starting with something easy so I can test out how this all works. I can’t wait to write more! These Franco Sarto Wedges are one of my favorite Goodwill finds. I bought these this past summer for $8! Franco Sartos are typically $50+ in department stores, so I knew this was an amazing deal. And they were in near perfect condition....
