All About My Spring Wardrobe Bargains!!

Life has taken off again with a lot of busyness, but all good stuff.

The weather has been glorious and it has been so fun to purge winter out of my closet and bring all my Spring things back in.

Spring is my happy place and I love all the colors in my wardrobe. 

For those that have read my blog for awhile you know I love color and I am a total classic/preppy gal at heart, and trust me my wardrobe reflects that.

I never thought that walking in my closet would make me happy, but it truly puts a smile on my face.

Of course it is organized so that is a plus. I am sure in short order I can mess it up, if you know what I mean.

We have yet to put in a closet organizer but it is on our to-do list for sure.

Here are a few pictures of my colorful closet.....

There is no mistaking that I love color, stripes and checks.

Since I have had to rebuild my wardrobe over the last 6 months it has really made me in tune to what works and what doesn't. Let's just say I am older and wiser now.

I still use Poshmark as my selling area and also for some purchases. Personally I have had very good luck there. The one thing that has been the most helpful is to be extremely specific in my searching. Brand, style, sizing, color. 

I actually have an index card with the measurements of what fit me. I got the measurements by measuring pieces of clothing that fit me well. There seriously have only been a couple of misses.

There is no purchasing anything without getting measurements first. If the seller doesn't give me measurements there is no purchase made.

Let me show you a few of my recent purchases over the last couple of months...

Banana republic $10

With warmer weather I needed some tank tops and light weight tops.

J.Crew $10 practically new.

Ann Taylor $10

J. Crew $15

J. Crew $16

This is my best deal so far. A brand new Chico's maxi dress that I actually debated several times last season on whether to get or not. It still had the tags on it $100 and are you ready for it?.....
$10, I know, crazy, right?

I also looked at these last season and never pulled the trigger. Sam edelman shoes fit my narrow foot, but I still had the seller measure the width and length for me. Brand new for $30

I was raised that it is not proper to talk about money or how much things cost, HOWEVER, when I can get bargains like this I am going to share it with you my dear readers!!!

Keep in mind there is a $6.49 shipping cost added to each sellers article of clothing but if you purchase more than one item from the same seller you will get a bundle price and only pay one shipping.

Well there you have it my latest bargains.

Before I finish I do need to share another reallly cute purchase but not from Poshmark but from Cabi.

I wore this Mother's day and this little cutie is a dress up or dress down piece. I love it so much. Notice it is cobalt black and white. Hello!!! Just my colors and then add the little check pattern and the tie top, I am so THERE!!!

Next is summer, so in comes the shorts, swimsuits, cover ups. Oh my, I'd better start loosing some weight!! Yikes!!!

BTW: Here is the link to my closet where I sale my articles of clothing that are no longer working for me.
