I hope you had a great weekend! I spent much of mine celebrating a friend’s upcoming wedding in Palm Beach. I can’t wait to share pictures with y’all this spring. Of course, Henry and I found our way to Katy Trail Ice House because it was an absolutely beautiful weekend, and well, why not?!

I wore this look about a week ago when I had a fun client coming in for a Style Appointment! We had the best time putting together casual weekend and elevated holiday looks! She felt beautiful and couldn’t have been more excited about her new fall and winter pieces!

Friday Finds: Bags + Wallets

fridayfinds

Y’all know I love to shop consignment because it’s a great way to score a deal on a designer item. If you’re in the market for a new bag or wallet, you’re in luck! All of these pieces are consigned, guaranteed authentic and up for grabs!

Happy Friday and happy shopping!

*This is a post I created awhile back but never posted! Some of these bags are still available! If sold, a similar option will populate!

Double breasted black blazer

Everyone needs a great black blazer in their closet! Whether you work in a business professional environment or you are a stay at home mom, it’s a staple piece you can wear to a meeting or out to dinner. I snagged this Veronica Beard blazer at my favorite consignment store, Clothes Circuit, a few months ago. I’ve dreamed about VB blazers – the structure, sophistication and versatility – and now those dreams have become a reality. This is a piece I will have in my closet for a long time!

I linked a more cost effective version of my blazer and another VB option. You can also click links “1-6” to see other consignment options.

Hi friends! Happy Sunday! I am posting Friday Finds today because I ran out of time this week to finish the post. As you know, I buy a lot of my clothes from consignment stores. Not only do I enjoy the deals, but I love the hunt too. Some of my very favorite pieces have been purchased this way! I’ve done the hunting for you, so just click the links below to shop!

Consignment Find

IMG_5684

| dress | jacket | sneakers | sunglasses |

I’m featuring another consignment find today! I’d say $27 isn’t bad for a $300 dress! The keys to consignment shopping are visiting the stores fairly often and not going shopping with a certain goal in mind. Maybe a budget, but I try not to go into a consignment store looking for a specific item! Most likely you won’t find it! You never know what you’ll find, so you have to go in with an open mind!

Back in the spring I found a beautiful Self Portrait dress that I knew would be perfect for a wedding. I didn’t have one on the calendar yet, but it sure did come in handy for a wedding I had a couple of weeks ago. If you love something and it’s a great price, I’d purchase it because it most likely won’t be there the next time you’re shopping. Of course, my advice can get you in trouble too, so keep your budget in mind!!

Lace Everything

I’ve found myself being drawn to neutrals this spring – from my new espadrilles, to sundresses and statement earrings. I picked up this top and skirt from consignment stores in Dallas and Miami. Y’all know how much I love consignment shopping and the thrill I get from a deal! The top and skirt originally retailed for around $700 together, but I paid $175 for the look. I’ll give myself a pat on the back for that one :). The top I’ve already worn a handful of times with jeans and shorts. I’ll continue to keep it in my rotation this spring and summer, and I’m excited to style this skirt in other ways too!

Thanks for stopping by! I’ve linked my exact skirt above. Below I’ve added some other skirts with greater size runs, so you can recreate my look! Many on SALE!!!

Silk Midi Dress, Another Consignment Find

I had a friend ask me this week, “How do you find such great pieces at consignment stores?” My answer: you just have to go often and with an open mind! My best tips for consignment shopping are to go at the beginning of each season when inventory is fresh and to not look for anything specific. You never know what you may find, and for me, that’s what makes consignment shopping so much fun. It’s a treasure hunt!

Some of my favorite pieces have come from consignment stores including this orange Tory Burch silk dress. The bright colors pop, and the dress is a great transition piece from summer to fall and winter to spring. Unfortunately I couldn’t find it anywhere online, so I encourage you to shop consignment and find your own treasures.

Here are a few other blog posts that feature consignment finds: 1, 2, 3, 4.

Friday Finds: Gucci Galore

fridayfinds

You know as well as I do that Gucci shoes are everywhere these days! Everybody’s wearing them: bloggers, your boss, your neighbor… you name it. Because of this, I decided to highlight their shoes as this week’s Friday Finds. I searched my favorite consignment retailers, and this is just a peak at what’s out there. Shopping consignment is a great way to buy into a trend without paying full price, and let’s be real, full price can be a lot.
