The booty: a couple of bargains

Thanks to the Vinnies Monster Clothing sale on Saturday, here are a couple of gorgeous goodies I scrummaged... for a whole $5 I grabbed an as-new Mambo tweedy overnight bag, gorgeous nude and black gorgette scarf and completely cute clutch.



Actually, I ended up there as a volunteer for the morning - re-hanging the many fallen and discarded items on the floor. I'm sure glad I went to the trouble though, of selecting the perfect outfit to clash horribly with the fluoro vest I was given to wear for my shift! But then again... what does go with fluoro orange???

It felt really nice to help out... and I got to shop thoroughly afterward... marvelous fun!
Did you go too? What bargains did you get?

My next brooch design was inspired by a brown cord coat ($7) that I picked up at the Sale. THE lining was to die for. Orange/brown floral take a peek in a week I will show it off in my blog.

I drove a car full on my friends there and we bought almost the entire collection of plush toys to decorate their apartment with. I personally got two lovely tops and a navy jacket which we all fought over and couldn't decide who looked best in, so it's now communal.

OMG, how could I have missed this??

Damn! I missed this, and I love tweed. So much!

I scored a Yves Saint Laurent dress shirt, an adoreable navy spotted tie, a pair of navy cord pants and a cute red bow-tie :D
