I took a little trip up to my local consignment shop, so I thought would be fun to do another dressing room snaps post! The consignment shop I visited is called My Gossip Girls Consignments in Westminster, Maryland and when I visited, they had a 50% off yellow tags sale.
Sundance twisted sleeve sweater, $19.99, yellow tag sale for $9.99
Sundance brand clothing is like Free People, Lucky Brand and Johnny Was had a baby. Their sweaters usually range in cost from $128 – $178 and have some kind of fun detail. This one is a cotton/wool blend and has a fun little twist detail on the sleeves. I don’t actually own any light pink, so I thought this might be a fun addition to my closet. I typically don’t go for anything wool because it makes me too hot and itchy, but this doesn’t seem to bother me. I also tried on the blouse in the photo, but I didn’t like the fit and forgot to note down the brand/price.
Tahari sweater poncho thing, $19.99, yellow tag sale for $9.99
This sweater poncho thing is kind of boxy and cropped with crazy sleeves… and I love it. I don’t know WHY I love it, but I love it and it was worth the $10 to bring it home to see how it can work with my closet. It looks awfully cute with the jeans and leopard print sneakers I was wearing. I can also dress it up with a sparkly blouse underneath and black pants. I might even try it over a dress? It is definitely giving me Eileen Fisher vibes. This should be a fun experiment!
Marni dress, $59.99
YOU GUYS. I wandered over to the designer and vintage area and I was like a kid in a candy shop. When I saw this Marni dress with the ‘made in Italy’ tags, I braced myself for a huge price tag. I mean, Marni dresses range from $1,100 – $2,500. REALLY! So the chances that I would love this dress, it would look good on me, it would be my size AND it would be in my price range was pretty slim…
As it turns out it’s an Italian size 44, which is about an 8 in US sizing, but was marked a 14 at the consignment shop. Lucky for me, because it fit my 10-12-medium-large-XL body quite well! It has a v-neck, fun floral fabric, and a drawstring waistband. Not to mention it’s extra flowy in the skirt and a bit longer in the back. I’m OBSESSED with this dress. I mean, look how cute it is over jeans? It will be downright adorable paired with tights and heeled booties!
