Once noted as the "dynamic duo" in high school, today we became a bargain hunting pair, as we headed downtown to do a little shopping.
Stopped mid-shop, Kaitlyn was described by a store attendant as being quite "glamorous". She lived up to her name, as she found some fine fashionable finds. These include a colorful, intricately designed plate, a sharp shirt jacket, a cozy over-sized button-up sweat shirt, and a vintage leather purse. Nicely done!
I also found some great things. I scored a high-waisted black wool skirt and pair of peg leg trousers for only $1 each! I also purchased a gorgeous pair of vintage suede Via Spiga shoes for $6 and a chunky cable-knit sweater for $1.
My highlight from our afternoon was found in a gorgeous yellow gown from the 1940's and a silk cape with fur trim. Paired together, these items were golden! I pulled the garments from their rack and headed for the dressing room (yes, I'm a girl that loves to play dress up).
Kaitlyn along with other shoppers pointed out how much the outfit simulated Bell's ball gown from Beauty and the Beast. This being said, I was asked to model the outfit for the store to see. The ensemble fit like a glove! The dress was beautiful as was the silk/fur cape. A fellow shopper even found a yellow button-up shirt for my "date" to wear. It was 2:30 in the afternoon in downtown Yakima, Washington, and I was ready for the ball!
Though the dress and cape was not purchased (for practical reasons), the bargain-hunted pair headed home with a bag-full of treasures and a fun-filled afternoon. Another thrift shopping trip was dubbed successful!
