I don't know what it is, but this time of year, I am drawn to sparkle! This is the third outfit post in a row, that I have worn sequins, or in this case accessorized with them. Not to mention, as I was prepping outfits to shoot for this weekend, I pulled out a different sequin skirt. My brain is stuck on shine.

As for this adorable tote, I picked it up at my local Goodwill. When I first saw it, it was dirty and I didn't know if I really liked it. Do you ever have moments like that? Where you're drawn to something but you can't figure out why? I threw this tote in my basket because I didn't want to be kicking myself if someone else picked it up while I was debating. I ended up going all the way with this bag... I took it home and I hand-washed it. Once I got her all spiffed up, I knew I made the right decision. I'm pretty fond of this new accessory.

Here's a story for "Throwback Thursday"- I worked at The Limited in college. It was my first and last retail job. I was only there for three months, and out of all my jobs, it is still the worst job I have ever had. "Please let me stand at the front door with a hand tally, clicking for every person who walks in" SAID NO ONE EVER!

Love this outfit. I can't believe you got a lot of this stuff from Goodwill! I have to shop at yours, apparently, because I'd never find things like these at mine. Beautiful outfit!

necklace is awesome and very great catch on the bag. Nothing wrong with a little bit of sparkle, especially this time of year

I'm always drawn to things that sparkle! I'm a huge thrifter myself and I -love- that you put the retail value of the things too. When I consider how much I could have paid for the things I find, it always makes me feel even more excited about my thrift store treasures!

Love the skirt but do not love the hand tally idea for a job! ... tedious.

Ha! I worked at BR for one month. I made no money because I spent it all on my ridiculously good discount. Also? I never wanted to do my own laundry because I folded clothes so much at work. FIRST and LAST retail job too!

That tote is great!! I love the necklace too. Good find!
