Article Consignment

Tonight at Article Consignment:

“The Savvy Shopper’s Guide to Thrift & Consignment Stores” Book signing with author Jo Anna Philips from 5-7 pm. Champagne, Snacks, & music plus, special offers and discounts!

If you haven’t checked them out yet you are missing out. Not only did I make some major dollars back through consignment but I used some of the funds to purchase these gems.

Vintage cream purse for under $15
Cashmere striped tank for under $15
Polka dot tank $3.




I almost hate to give away one of my new favorite shopping spots but I think there is enough to share.

Excuses, excuses!!!

The thing about bloggers is that every once in a while they should blog. I’m not really a blogger. I’m a personal stylist with one client (myself) who occasionally blogs. I also have a short attention span. Those are my excuses anyways. I’ve been playing a bit with other hobbies including Pinterest and sewing.


Gals pinboard on Pinterest

Pinterest is a virtual pinboard for images. Most of the users on Pinterest are women. It can provide particularly good inspiration if you are planning any sort of event or decorating your home. It’s also a good place to browse if you like fashion or are just plain crafty. The only drawback that I have determined is that I realize the love of turqoise/teal is TOTALLY MAINSTREAM and that I’ll have to find a new favorite color of the moment. I’m thinking yellow or maybe green. Anyways my Pinterest board for women’s fashion is located here:

Very Easy Vogue V8647 Misses' Dress pattern cover illustration

I’ve been taking sewing classes at Meissner’s since April and have finished a couple of projects. I am ALMOST done with my first dress. It’s a Vogue pattern – a simple jersey dress. My teacher thinks it is too tight (note that my boyfriend thinks it is not tight enough)
and I can tell that we are going to have some disagreements on fit . She doesn’t even know I’m cutting 4-5 inches off the bottom. Kids these days!
