Sale Away

blog Eileen Fischer

On Sunday, the Value Village was having a fifty percent off sale on shoes and clothing. So even though I don’t need any shoes or clothes, I still had to go (you know see if there was anything there that I could use to stock my Etsy Shop).

Of course I found things. Practical things and three truly fantastic finds. On the practical side, I picked up the basic black Eileen Fisher sweater  pictured above (and now I have to decide which of my other basic black sweaters I’m going to have to purge in order to reclaim wardrobe balance).

And then I found my dream shoes. One of my first Pinterest pins was a pair of very similar Chie Mihara oxfords. Other than the texture of the leather, these Miharas are virtually the same. And they look like they’ve been worn once. How could I be expected to stop shopping. So I picked up a pair of much more sensible orthopedic-looking Adidas.

I also got a Lacoste cardigan. In total, after discounts, my bill came to about $32 bucks. To be fair, I did take a pass on a pair of leather pants as well as many, more impractical shoes. And again, I need to stick to the strict one in, two out policy. Expect a post about purging later this week.
