What I Wore: Thrifting

I know what you’re thinking. But! This is my usual uniform … with a twist. See, I added a necklace. Ahhh! It’s like a whole new outfit. No? Oh well …

I also put on a pair of heels, which I assure you I did not wear out of the house (I think this was back in early March). They’re too cute for slush, and a surprise bargain. See, I bought them on the J. Crew Factory website, but they are in fact the regular retail version of this shoe – made in Italy. I paid something entirely reasonable, too (around $70, if I recall correctly). The reviews for these wedges (called Martina on the retail side, and Sylvia on the Factory side) are generally very positive, and so far I concur; they’ll get tested more extensively once I go back to work.

P.S. If you have a minute, check out my guest post today over at the Unique Gifter (psst, it’s all about bags in this season’s hot pastel trend).

  1. You shouldn’t be so hard on yourself about your “uniform”. It really works for you, so why not squeeze everything out of it that you can?

    • Oh, I’m not! I wear it all the time, and I love it. I just feel bad for you guys, reading this and yawning every day 😉
      But my new thing is bringing the real. Like, cinema verite but for blogging. Blogging verite. Hah!

  2. I love Buffalo Plaid a bit too much… so I might be biased about this.

    I used to be a heel girl, but then I got my first pair of wedges (yes, heels before wedges…) and now primarily wear those. I’ve only bought one pair of heels from J Crew though. The store near me never seems to have very many at all. Don’t you love it when you get the pair you’ve wanted (or have been eyeballing) and it’s discounted?

    • Yeah, it was awesome! I didn’t even realize I got lucky, until I read about it on Gigi’s blog. I just assumed all Factory shoes were made in Italy. Hahahaha! By the way, I think these wedges are still available online, and even cheaper now; at one point, they were something like $55 plus an extra 30% off. Yeah, that hurt a little bit…

      I’ve never really done wedges before, but this pair is definitely swaying me …
