Heya Aspiring Gurus!
I went shopping for maternity clothes last week and found a few great pieces to add to my wardrobe. Some of the clothes will still work after pregnancy as well, so that’s a plus. The first store I went to was the Salvation Army and it wasn’t what I was expecting. It was HUGE and had such a large variety of everything. I was simply amazed and the prices couldn’t be beat either. It smelled dirty and like cigarettes though. I felt bad for the homeless people hanging out in there. I will be going back next week for more clothes for my dad. He got two pairs of jeans and one was from J Crew. It was 138 USD full price and he got it for 5 dollars. You cannot beat it, when you have a hard time affording quality clothes. I wish I would have gone sooner. The polka dot top comes with a built in tang top. I bought all of the items for 29 dollars, including my dad’s two pairs of jeans.
The last store I went to was called The Victorian Rose. It is a vintage consignment shop and the old ladies who run the place were very helpful. I got a lot of great finds for a great affordable price. The prices were just as low as the Salvation Army, which I wasn’t expecting, especially since I found two designer finds. I got a lighter wash version of the really dark jeans that I bought at the Salvation Army, but they are in the wash so no picture on that pair. Instead of the black tummy piece it has a tan tummy piece with the light jean wash. The pastel banana yellow blazer is by Anne Klein and the dress is a BCBG dress by Max Azria. The black top from Tokyo comes with a built in camisole. I bought everything for 17 USD.
I absolutely love everything that I got and will now be comfortable in my pants. I can make so many outfits with all of these clothes, while being in comfort. Some of my own clothes still work, so the possibilities are endless. Do you shop consignment?
