Today's outfit, top, shorts, bag and shoes cost me all of a total of $28.00! The top, shorts and bag all came from Plato's Closet. Plato's is considered a "teen fashion store" and we all know I am not a teen, but you CAN find adult appropriate clothing and accessories at incredible prices if you just spend some time, try things on and are not in a hurry! The day I got the items I'm wearing I spent about three hours in the store and made about six trips to the dressing room! The shorts and straw tote (that I'm going to use as a beach bag) were both new with tags (NWT) which is always a bonus when shopping consignment stores!! You would be surprised how many items I've gotten at consignment stores that still had tags on them. The wedges came from Rugged Warehouse. Rugged Warehouse is a discount clothing store. It's one of those places that is totally hit or miss. I've found some great things at Rugged Warehouse over the years and I think these wedges are the favorite of all my finds! They are very "vintage Marc Jacobs". The original price was $68.00 but they were marked down again and again with the price I bought them for being only $9.00!! You will be seeing a lot of them this summer!
