Skirt: BCBG Max Azria sample sale
Shoes: ancient Seychelles
My friend Mary invited me to shop at the BCBG holiday sample/warehouse sale in Vernon with her yesterday, and it was CRAZY. It was scheduled to run from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. I arrived at 8:15, but by that time the line to get in was wrapped around the block! We later learned that they allowed the first 200 people in right away but could only allow more people in as others left because of fire safety regulations.
Mary joined me at 8:45 or so because her alarm didn’t go off on time that morning, and we ended up standing in line for four hours. Why did we stick it out? I don’t really have a good answer to that question. However, I ended up with three beautiful BCBG Max Azria skirts for about 90% off the retail price, which means $15 each. And this is one of them.
I was excited to pull my vintage popcorn-stitch sweater out of the closet today to pair with this skirt too. I love the textures together, and this sweater is one of my most prized thrifted finds. The neck was partially ripped when I found it at Goodwill, but I sewed it up and you can’t even tell now (unless you look very, very closely). Wearing it again reminded me how nuts I am for popcorn stitching, and I ended up taking a quick trip down to the Old Town Pasadena H&M in the afternoon to buy two more popcorn-stitch sweaters. They have a deal on selected knits right now where you can buy one sweater and get a second free!
I’m about to Skype with my sister in Australia, so I’ll end this here. Have a good week, everyone!
