trying not to gloat...

Yes, I made it to the Salvos designer the other weekend.  Hurriedly scanned my way through racks and racks and racks of clothes.  I'm sure I missed things, and meant to go back the next day, but didn't make it.  Probably good for the bank balance.  However, I was very pleased with the items I brought home.  Briefly, Nolita sweat top, Art garb skirt, Italian leather boots, silk tie, jeans, and  jag track suit pants(didn't bother with a photo of them).

Then during the week I stopped off at my favourite little Oppe Shoppe on Hawthorn Rd.  For $25 I snagged a pair of jag jeans, new cute little bag for carrying ripple blanket around in, brand new Nine West ankle boots (crippled my feet with them this morning, but damn they look good!), board shorts for my nephew, 3 Madeline books for Miss Whizzme, a spelling game (never opened) and a wonderful little retro book 'Let's find out about butterflies'. Carried around a nine west handbag for a while, but was only pvc so but it back! (what a snob!!)

If you are looking for a pair of nice shoes, this little op shop is worth checking out once in a while, as they often get in Nine West stock that is new but seconds or old stock.

I was there yesterday, but didn't have time to look at the clothes. It looks great now that they've painted and put new floorboards down. They always have great jeans!
