Our first stop: A brown bag special on cosmetics. All you could fit into the bag for $3. Elizabeth went to town!
We now have fingernail polish as far as the eye can see...
What we got for our $3:
192 nail polish colors
3 french manicure kits
8 loose powders
2 pressed powders
2 lip liners
Somehow, we ended up with most of the things from Aunt Kasey's bag as well. Hmm. I'm pretty pumped about the loose powder though. I have a small addiction to the stuff.
Second stop was a kids resale shop. She always has really nice things, but usually has them priced higher than I'm willing to pay for used clothes. I did snatch up this swim shirt for Jackson next summer. Again, $3.
I'm the mom that lets her kids get sunburned.
Our last stop - is my favorite one. Mostly women's clothing on consignment, a few kid things. I picked up a pair of chocolate brown capri pants, and a white button down-still had the tags. Elizabeth got a tank top, skirt and a really cute pair of "simple" sneakers. I also found my dad a pair of TOMS for Father's day.
But these? These are my favorites!
Almost new Jessica Simpson shoes for Isabelle. ($8?) They will be perfect for this fall/winter and she loves them. Almost as much as she loves these:
Brand new, in the box- Nordstroms sandals! ($6.) They will fit perfectly next summer!
A pair of flats for myself. ($8.) I probably would not have bought them if I saw them in the store, but who can resist a brand called: "Naughty Monkey"? Not me!
By this time, Kasey and Elizabeth are both ready to go. The sales girl forgot to add in the shoes, so I had to pay for them separately. While she was ringing them up, I spotted this on the wall across the store:
So, so sweet! a "K.C. Parker" dress with sweater...in my favorite color! It's a bit big for Isabelle, but I'm guessing she'll grow. Elizabeth and Kasey are headed to the door as I hand over my debit card for the third time. I promise I am on my way.... grab my bags... and my eye found this, high on the wall:
A BRAND NEW KATE SPADE BAG!
The style I've been
coveting admiring from afar for a long, long time.
New, complete with tags and dust bag.
So, I got out my debit card again, and saved $245.00 off ticket price!
And then? We went home and had hot dogs for dinner!
