Savers Holiday Fashion Show

hmm, I actually forgot what the trophy said. Oh well! The title doesn’t matter, what does matter is the fashion!!

Head to toe : $44.00

Best find : it’s a tie

Cole Haan shoes $20.00

Chico’s wrap

Side note : Kenna is one of the original people I styled when I had my thrift styling business THRIFT ME OVER. At that time, she flew to ABQ, NM and had me style her and a friend. After seeing my post about Savers first fashion show back in August, she decided to drive in from CA with her two daughters and walk the runway!

Yes, I styled her for the show.

It took three hours.

Hey, we were busy talking and getting distracted by all the brand new (with tags) Chico’s clothing that was in the store. Seriously, it was amazing how much was there.

BTW : this look is totally out of her comfort zone but she loved it!

Isn’t that right, Kenna…

Kenna???

Contestant #5

Machele

Machele

Head to toe : $46.00

Best find : Stuart Weitzman sandalsย  for only $10!!

These retailed new for around $600 and I found this exact pair selling online at therealreal for $75.00. Savers had them marked at $16.99 but shoes were 40% off so…

 

Machele is Kenna’s daughter and reluctantly agreed to be a model.

Yes, I styled her for the show, too. I put this look together in ten minutes.

Head to toe : $55.00

Best find : it’s a tie

INC jacket $25

Gold turtleneck (with the $58 SteinMart tag still on it) $12.99

Phyllis is the Editor of scsliving.com, an online newsletter about Sun City Summerlin.

Her outfit is a perfect example of the importance of having a statement coat. When you live in a cold climate, your coat is sometimes all that people ever see of your outfit.

Ballerina

That’s how I felt when I wore this outfit to a recent Holiday party.

2017-12-16 17.29.24
Jones New York turtleneck : $7.99ย  ย  ย  ย Vintage clutch : $7.99

 

*Did you notice the red nails??!!

I was trying to look festive in my all black ensemble.

#GoMe

This look is really all about the skirt, that makes me feel like a ballerina.

#Tulle

This Ann Taylor skirt (12.99) still had the $100 price tag on it. I waited in line for an hour at Savers on Black Friday…just so I could score this for 75% off.

I paid $2.55.

A great price but not worth an hour of my time.

Pop of Color

Happy Friday!

I’m super excited about this weekend. On Sunday, my baby turns 21!!!

#HowDidThatHappen

All of that has nothing to do with my outfit but I just wanted to share the news…

that I’m officially old.

๐Ÿ˜‰

Anyhow, I’m actually super proud of myself with today’s look.

2017-12-01 12.34.19

Any guesses why???

#JustLookAtTheTitleOfTodaysPost

๐Ÿ˜‰

The star of the show is really this H&M jacket I scored at the thrift.

 

It was a bit pricey at $7.99 but I saw a similar style in stores now, selling for $90.00.

I guess eight bucks ain’t that bad now, is it.

Grandpa Style

As you all know, I’m always on the hunt for a good bargain, and going to estate sales here in Sun City is a good place to find one…

sometimes.

Case in point is this grandpa sweater I recently came across.

2017-11-25 11.52.21

I immediately noticed that it was cashmere, which made me interested in it, despite being a Men’s size LG.

2017-11-25 11.52.38

2017-11-25 11.52.27

It wasn’t marked so I asked the lady in charge the price.

Here’s how the conversation went down…

Lady : It’s $15.00

Me : $15.00!!!!

Lady : Well, it’s cashmere.

Me : Gurrlll…I can get this at the thrift store for five bucks.

Then a miracle happened!

There was a young man working the sale too, listening to our conversation. He immediately piped up and said…

“I’ll take five bucks for that.”

Me : SOLD!!!

2017-11-25 11.52.14

The End.

Teddy Bear Coat

Seriously…

how cute is this teddy bear coat!!

2017-11-20 12.02.28

 

I am LIVING FOR IT!!

To make the jacket stand out, I put my favorite color underneath!

2017-11-20 12.03.26

Along with stripes, some pattern mixing and my OTK boots, I was super happy with how this look turned out.

#TwoThumbsUp

 

If you remember the thrift haul video I did, I had a hard time figuring out how to get this coat on.

#DontJudgeMe ๐Ÿ˜‰

2017-11-20 12.02.03

2017-11-20 12.02.49

 

I saw this teddy bear style coat selling at H&M recently for $49.00.

2017-11-20 12.00.51

I scored mine for $4.19.

BOOM!!

 

 

Sandwich

No, this post has nothing to do with food…

and everything to do with this sheer top!

2017-11-23 16.24.39

Sandwich is a UK brand of clothing.

 

I picked up this rust/gray top for $4.19 from GW.

2017-11-23 16.24.33

2017-11-23 16.24.42

 

 

I’m not really that crazy about it and it’s not really that flattering but I wore it anyway.

2017-11-23 16.24.37

I needed to get my money’s worth out of it.

๐Ÿ˜‰

Dragonfly Sweater

I picked up this dragonfly sweater at the thrift for several reasons.

2017-11-18 12.17.29

2017-11-18 12.17.40

I liked it. (because it’s unusual)

It’s vintage. (I think)

It was less than five bucks.

I liked the embroidery, even though I’m not a fan of dragonflies. I do know several people that are though.

Half of it is black.

๐Ÿ˜‰

2017-11-18 12.17.14

 

Apparently other people liked it too because I received numerous compliments (three to be exact) when I wore it.

2017-11-18 12.16.51

That never happens!
