Another way to save on fall fashion....

I'm a huge fan of thrift shops. Always have, always will. It's in my shopping blood, you can say. And now, I'm even happier after learning of a Plato's Closet store that recently opened in my town! If you don't know what Plato's Closet is, let me explain briefly. Plato's is a franchise store that buys and sells your gently-used clothing, shoes, and accessories. Here's the catch though: the store will only buy up-to-date, trendy, popular brand name items for teens and twenty-somethings. I love how I can go in with a bag of clothing that just doesn't appeal to me anymore, and walk out with some cold, hard cash in hand. Now, now, I usually don't actually walk out the door with said cash, as 75% of the time I am overwhelmed and tempted to purchase more goodies I see while there!!! But it's all good, right?

Okay, I do have one problem with Plato's Closet. Sometimes their pricing system on their merchandise isn't so great. More than once, I've picked up a shirt only to put it back when their price is higher than the original garmets selling price. For ex. $9 for a Merona tank when its original price sticker on it reads $7. Oh well, no biggie. I'm a pro when it comes to knowing what to buy and when to buy it at a store like Plato's. Kinda.....I will say that on my latest excursion to Plato's Closet, I found a dress from Anthropologie that I had been vying to get since this summer. Originally over $140, I got it in my size, in fabulous like-new condition for $18....

sometimes its best to think ahead

Ugg has released their fall 2009 collection, and they have successfully caught my attention with the 'Highkoo'. These slouchy, simple boots will set you back at a pricier $200 USD, but I see this a worthy investment. The 'Highkoo' comes in three shades: black, espresso, and grey. The slouchy detailing is perfect for pairing with skinny jeans (still in style, yay) and a warm sweater....yes, I am thinking of winter even though its 103 degrees today again....
You know, I have a pair of Uggs from a few years back and they look great to this day! Ugg products, from their sandals, boots, even accessories, hold up extremely well to outside elements. Just make sure you follow the care instructions....Oh and another plus~they are super cozy with the fluffy wool a cloud
