Today was a pretty good day. My best friend Laura (LadyLaura) came over with her kids. Love it when they stop by! My son and her daughter Isabella are best friends as well 🙂 They play very well together and it’s just hilarious to see the things that five-year olds do. Her daughter is gorgeous! But I can totally wait till they get older and fall in love.. sigh!
Well anyhoo, we spent the majority of the day chatting and looking at our favorite bloggers. I happen to love Gabifresh and Dulce Candy. Both are very talented stylist and more importantly they post items that I would have never thought to put together! So since we’re both mommies and understand the hustle and bustle of day-to-day life with our children, we decided to dig into what I like to call my “treasurechestofthrift“. I AM A HUGE thriftshopper. I don’t believe in paying full price for anything! Some people get turned off by going to consignment shops but I grew up on them. I did not come from a wealthy family and my parents would take us to The Goodwill, Salvation Army and occasionally we received church donations. I learned a long time ago that with a little bit of love and Estilo you can make any $5 outfit rock!
My favorite consignment shop is Consignment Originals, Inc in Orange, CT. I find the best name brand clothing at the best prices! To prove it we created a casual outfit to go to eat ice cream with the kids.
I found this cute Josephine Chause skirt for only $6.25! I paired it with a simple white old navy shirt and brown H by Halston wooden heel stilettos.
Now this piece I absolutely rock as much as possible! My bestie Mareyam gave this to me. And I know you wouldn’t belive by looking at it, but her mom made it! i love the chunkiness to it as well as the fact that it goes with so many outfits.
Her mom Farideh is this beautiful Persian pop singer with incredible fashion sense. Check out her Iranian music videos on Youtube!
