Kino Sandals

Friday, May 30, 2014

Last year, my sister moved from California to Florida. Almost immediately, she noticed people wearing pretty and colorful sandals that looked like they were made by the same manufacturer. Finally, she stopped and asked a woman what they were. Kino sandals. The riddle was solved and my sister went online and purchased a pair for herself and my mom. Last night, when I went home to visit my family, these were waiting for me: 

Cute, right? The shoes, not my feet. Anyway, Kino Sandals are handmade in Key West and are crazy affordable. Like $14-$18. For leather sandals! Visit I know, you want a pair, too.  They have so many cute styles in great colors. I'll definitely be buying some for myself this summer.

I mentioned these never worn leather peep toe Nine West wedges in yesterday's post. I picked them up today and LOVE them. The are such a good online yard sale score. 

I can't wait to wear them to work! 

Sunburst Mirror and Gap Sale!

Saturday, May 3, 2014

Whenever I go to HomeGoods or Marshall's (or any other discount store that sells home furnishings) I look for sunburst mirrors. They're always gorgeous and somewhere in the $100 price range. If you know me, you know that price isn't even an option. Nevertheless, I  look. On Wednesday, a gorgeous vintage sunburst mirror popped up on my online yard sale. The price? A cool $5! I picked it up on Thursday and it fits perfect above the small book case in my living room. Love it!

Next up, the annual spring closet switch out is always a daunting task. Winter coats are so bulky and difficult to store. Plus, putting boots and sweaters away is an exercise in creative space manipulation (because that's a real thing).  This year, I also had the painful realization (painful in that my budget is tight) that I desperately need new spring/summer shirts. I always buy great skirts and dresses, then struggle when I need a basic tee. Enter the latest Gap sale. Already reduced prices are an additional 30% off (when you buy four items) and 35% off (when you buy five items). I was able to get four basic spring/summer tops for just $13.93! Happy me! Saving money and freshening up my wardrobe!
