Today was the day I decided was the beginning of the flea market season.  So in my winter coat, hat and gloves I schlepped to the flea market and made a brand new friend.  A friend that gave me a blogworthy, fantastic deal.

Brand new button down Short sleeve silver/gray dress
Brand new button down Short sleeve silver/gray dress $10.00

I love this dress so much and the fabric is a very good quality.  Because the original tags were still attached, I discovered the original retail price was $85.00.  Yay!

Newport News $10.00 velour jacket
Newport News $10.00 velour jacket

This jacked didn't have the original tags attached.  However, it was flawless and in near mint condition.   I told her to go ahead and throw that in too.

What a steal!  So that's $20.00 spent and I got two pieces that I can merge into my everchanging wardrobe that won't go out of style.  I can wear the dress during multiple seasons throughout the year-no question.  I can dress is up or down. 

The jacket will look great as a layering piece going into fall this year and will be rockin' once I put a giant rhinestone pin on the collar.

Deciding that was all the money I could spend today I did pop on over to the Goodwill store and sent out good shoe karma to anyone who wears a size 8 1/2 shoe......see below for the reason why:

Moschino strappy 4 inch heels w/ roses -$20.00
Moschino strappy 4 inch heels w/ roses -$20.00
$20.00 Moschino shoes-2 sizes too big....Can you believe it???  These were in excellent condition.  I hope they go to a good home as I will be praying for them tonight.
