Do you shop consignment stores?

I have to thank this frient for introducing me to an amazing consignment store here in Salt Lake. Before shopping with her, I hadn’t spent much time in consignment stores. I have never been opposed to buying second hand items, I just didn’t think that a consignment store would have much variety. Well, Name Droppers has certainly proven me wrong. They have two locations and an easy to navigate website (www.shopnamedroppers.com) with a wonderful assortment of clothing, shoes, and accessories. We found this moto vest there and paired it with some distressed denim jeans from Zara (click here). I know, this frient could make a paper bag look stylish, but wow, what a knock-out!

Toss or Treasure Tuesday

Toss or Treasure Tuesday

Well, what do you think? Is this cardi a toss or treasure. The color is lovely. I think that turquoise blue is flattering on everyone. On the other hand, I’m not sure about the leaf thingamajigs over the buttons, and the full  drapey sleeves. It doesn’t look very current, so  I’m afraid it’s a toss. Of course it’s not horrible, I’ve seen much worse. But I think you can do much better.

Same great denim jeans, but oh look at that jacket!

Same great denim jeans, but oh look at that jacket!

Yes, those are the same pants I was wearing on yesterday’s post. When I become a super famous fashion blogger, (wish you could hear the sarcasm in my voice!) I won’t wear the same thing twice. For now, however, I’ll admit to wearing the same pants two days in a row. As you can see I’ve paired them with this spectacular jacket from H&M. For shopping info scroll down to end of the photos.
