Once in awhile I found something cute and undervalued and  in mint condition.  Last year, I  read several books on consignment, vintage, and thrift shopping.  I will write another post for  on the book review.  As for this outfit, I found them from drive by after work after I conducted a building audit a couple blocks down.   This thift store ran by the Junior League  (non-profit).   I swinged by and found H&M fitted for $.50 and blue pencil for $1.50, and red handbag brand new for $13.  My rule of thumb for thrift shopping is buying only clothes that fit best for my body without any alteration because my sewing skill is nada, and only buy quality and great condition.  You did not dry clean my skirt; I cold wash and flat dry and iron myself so there this no addition cost added.  Getting the right fit as important as getting a great deal.

Who says looking chic and fresh cost burn a hold in your wallet?  I believe you can pull a fabulous out with fraction of retail plus the money you spend help pay for the charitable program.  I spent $2.00 for the blouse and skirt and $13 for handbag.  I used the Coach shoes that I purchased 7 years ago and Anthropogies belt I got many moons ago as well.  People at my office paid many compliments on the look of the outfit.
