Sweater Bonanza

I don't know what the weather's like where you are but this has been one of the coldest winters I can remember. One of the best things about winter is picking out cute sweaters to wear. Pair it with some jeans and boots and woila.....a dressy yet casual look you can wear on date night, to coffee with a girlfriend, even church. I recently visited a Goodwill thrift shop in my area and hit the motherload. Feast your eyes...

  1. I love your sweaters! I hopped over here from A Slob Comes Clean and read your post. I also shop at thrift stores for most of my clothing, but I have absolutely no fashion sense. I can see good picks on other people...but then I go out to find something and it's just never quite right. -Tabitha

  2. Hi Tabitha! So glad you liked the post. As far as developing fashion sense, go to some of the fashion blogs I reference on this site, and are good. Notice what you like on other women. When people compliment you on an outfit take mental note of the color, cut and style of the garment. Lastly, think about your body type and what looks good on your type of figure. You'll get there!

  3. Valerie,

    Have you thought about doing a post on your make-up routine? Also, are you a MK consultant?

    1. Hi there! Thanks for commenting! I kind of have been kicking around the idea of talking about make-up. Thanks for pushing me in that direction. No, I'm not a MK consultant, but I do LOVE their products!


I love to hear from my readers! Thanks for commenting.
