Recently, I decided i needed to get new jeans; Marth loves them, and there’s only one, possibly two pairs that fit me, because i’ve lost weight recently (yay! 😀 I’ve been working out every day so it’s great to see it’s been paying off!)
I thought about Khols and Walmart and JC Penney and all those other places that have good clothes and since the tax return came in, i actually have money again. At the same time…I remembered the tight, uncomfortable “new jeans” feel. After spending years in hand-me-down jeans from my ex-boyfriend’s older sisters, i just have had a hard time getting used to new jeans. I haven’t had a comfortable pair of new jeans since 2013…and they were the only ones i’d had since 2011. XD
Not that i’m complaining!! Hand-me-down jeans are soft and comfy and, as long as they’re a good brand name, still have plenty of wear in them 🙂
Somehow i had forgotten that me and Marth’s favorite high-end thrift shop, Plato’s Closet sold jeans.
Fortunately i remembered just in time! ^_^
After trying on about 7 pairs, I got American Eagle jeans for $17! They’re long, comfy and lived-in. 😀 ❤
Soooo of course, i couldn’t stop there…
I found this cute little number, and there were two reasons i had to have it.
- I’m a huge sucker for skater skirts.
- It was $5. 😀
(It’s lacy and cute at the bottom too!)
Then, i remembered i had bought my favorite sweater from there, a while ago. Its a gray knit button-up cardigan…from the guys’ section. So naturally i had to peruse there too 😉
Before i even got to the sweater section, i found this…
I mean. C’mon. It’s awesome. And it makes me think of the guys from the Big Bang Theory. And it was $6, so i bought it too ^_^
Aaaand then i got to the sweater section! 😀 It took some looking cuz there were not many that unzipped/unbuttoned all the way down.
This one, has pockets and it’s so long and comfy! 😀
Last but certainly not least….
As i looked thru the girls tops (which i finally decided i’d just go to walmart later, because there are a couple there i know i like and look good on me. Plus the crazy, overpattered oversized selection was giving me a headache), I happened to glance up at the shoe rack. I’m always on the lookout for heels, because i only owned one pair (brown leather hand-me-down from the ex’s sister) straight up until about 2 months ago when Marth’s mum gave me some that she bought that didn’t fit her. They’re Croc brand, so waterproof, sandal-style black heels.
I found these; black, borderline Steampunk style with a hint of Helena Bonham-Carter. ^_^ Usually cute things like these don’t fit me, but i had socks on today and i figured that would give me some wiggle room for sizing.
They slid on my feet like a dream. 🙂
I LOVE THEM.
I couldn’t pass them up. ^_^
So that was my adventure today 🙂 Grand total, including county tax ended up around $47-$50. 🙂 So that was awesome!
Plato’s Closet. Super amazing value for adorable stuff! 🙂
