All Dressed Up

Dear Fashion Diary,

I'm "jumping for joy" at my first ever (not used) Jcrew purchase!! Granted, this skirt was from the Jcrew Factory store online but still Jcrew! I own one other Jcrew item and it is a sweater from a thrift store, but this baby is brand new and never worn!
Thrifting is great, but sometimes it's just nice to own something new, 
without stains, or questionable smells. :)

Sorry I've been MIA on blogland lately, we've been housesitting/dogsitting for my inlaws this week and I've also been very busy selling a lot of  my old clothes via Facebook!
Have any of you done that before? Maybe it's just a local AZ thing but I Love it.
It makes spring cleaning so much easier! I got replies to my postings
minutes after I put photos up! I would highly suggest
 looking around for local fb groups if you are trying to sell your old stuff. 
What have you all been up to lately??

I just love those photos and I envy the fact how you can wear such light and summery ensembles :P btw, today I started sorting my pencil skirts and my gosh, there are TOO MANY of those! it's crazy. but I will donate some boxes full of clothes I don't need anymore.

Hello Sarah, I have known about you for quite awhile now through your Mom's sweet blog. My own daughter is your age and is a Fashion Merchandise major in college. You so remind me of her as she is very modest as well. This post could be her post as she gets so excited when she has found a designer item at a very low price. I am learning to love fashion through her. Congratulations on your wonderful new family! I will be sure and let my daughter know about your blog! Elizabeth, Creative Breathing

Hi Sara! I love your skirt and jacket paired together. I would never think to pair stripes with green, and it looks great.

Yeah, I loooove Jcrew. Their catalog and window displays are a good to outfit inspiration for me. I only but their clothes when they are super-duper discounted.

Have a great day,

~Jane B.
