SHOPPING WITH LOUIE, JENNIFER AND GIGI



My dear friend Gigi has been out of town and, of course, there is no better way to welcome her back than with lunch out and resale shopping!!  We had so much fun…she found five different tops from places like Talbots and Saks Fifth Ave. 
Though I like to carry my small vintage Louie Vuitton occasionally, I was super excited to find this beautiful red B.Makowsky bag at GARMENT EXCHANGE on Thousand Oaks.  After I used some income from my own sales in the store, I walked out with this amazing bag for just $40!!  It really is beautiful and I did not own a red bag…much less such a gorgeous, quality red bag!!  I just gave myself a birthday present!
Today I wore my Jennifer Lopez coral pants from KOHLS.  I purchased them last spring, but by the end of the season they were just too tight and uncomfortable……YES, after walking every day, they fit!!! BTW, I don't buy something because someone's name is on it...I buy for great fit, or its an item I want in my wardrobe, or it communicates the message I desire, or the price is right, or (most often) all of the above!!
Shopping…lunch….good friends…and pants that fit…WHO COULD ASK FOR ANYTHING MORE??
Have a terrific Tuesday!!   Does anyone else have a recent consignment shop success story??

  1. I don't buy for the name on an item either... unless of course it's a tried and true brand that I've purchased before and have loved the fit of it. Love the red purse... SCORE!!

    1. No consignment shop story, but I'm with you on the pants. I bought them in black and they were a good choice. My only wish is that the material had been more sateen.
