Linx

Loot: Ralph Lauren, Coach, leather, stripes

When you're petite and small you can often get away with wearing kids' clothes. And that's great because kids' clothes cost less and (often) have the same quality materials. I generally find I just need to watch out for big enough arm holes and anything that won't look right on woman-shaped hips. Enter these cheap as heck Ralph Lauren kids' clothes I bought at a tag sale this weekend:

Ralph Lauren kids striped ruffle dress from tag sale in Wantagh Ralph Lauren kids white floral tank from tag sale in Wantagh Ralph Lauren kids striped ruffle top from tag sale in Wantagh

The white tank is a little iffy on the space under the arms but the other two fit great. Hooray! These are all a little summery but I'm going to work them into my cool weather wardrobe because I want to be wearing them already. :)

And here are some other things I bought:



Ralph Lauren black linen ruffle top from tag sale in Wantagh Ralph Lauren black linen ruffle skirt from tag sale in Wantagh Coach gold sandals from tag sale in Wantagh Enamel daisy pin from tag sale in Wantagh A&S kid gloves from tag sale in Wantagh Derby pigskin + Sutliff's Select - bird's eye

Notes:
  1. Ralph Lauren black linen ruffle top. So soft. I kind of love the wrinkly-ness of linen, though this isn't the wrinkly kind. Anyway, the extra fabric at the shoulders is nice for balancing my hips.
  2. Matching skirt. A little bit mermaid-ish. I'm lucking out with the mermaid skirts with Ralph Lauren, huh?
  3. Coach gold sandals. I didn't already have a shoe like this. These are a little bit worn - hopefully they won't hurt.
  4. I love enamel flower brooches. This daisy is (not easy to tell from the pic) ginormous.
  5. Did I really need another pair of black slouch gloves? No. And yet.
  6. Pipes! My plan is to turn these into planters, believe it or not. That's a project for after I'm settled into the new apartment. So, you know, not this year. ;)
We try to have Monday mornings off from tag sale work here at GCTS (and it started out as the whole Monday) but this is the first one in months we haven't had to squeeze someone in. I'm enjoying with hot apple cider and The West Wing.
