It's been a long, cold winter here in Western NY, and I would never be so naive as to suggest that it's anywhere near over. However, after weeks of below-freezing and often below-zero temperatures, the sun made a very welcome appearance. The temperature climbed above the freezing mark. Things started to melt and people came out of hiding.
Which means that the stores were packed today. It's a good thing I got to Henrietta right at the opening - it was already full of people, but I beat enough of the crowds to make some really good finds. I was not so lucky in Greece. I was late enough there that I didn't find one single thing. Fortunately, my earlier finds made up for it!
|Shabby Apple, $10|
I'd never heard of this label before, but based on the style (lace and hinting at vintage) I assumed it was ModCloth. I googled it to find a whole new delightful website dedicated to vintage-style clothing. I found what appears to be the dress - The Peony Dress - although the neckline is higher on mine. This was the only thing I bought that wasn't half off, but I figured $10 for a $96 dress is worth it!
|American Eagle, $5|
|NY & Co, $6.50|
|One Clothing, $3.50|
|Max Studio, $3|
|Life is good, $3|
|Charter Club, $3|
Shiny. Fitted. Gorgeous! (and according to eBay, since it's not at Macy's anymore, originally $59!)
I also bought a new, thick, squishy (LEI) winter coat for $3. I've learned that sometimes the best way to get winter to end is to buy great new winter stuff. Come on, coat. You can do it!
