Black and White and Red all over!

Hello Blogland!!! How is everyone this weekend??? I’ve been off the computer a bit since the hubster’s blew a gasket and is in the shop. He’s having to use mine to do his homework-limiting my blog time!!!

Today I did my usual after-church “thing” while I was in Hagerstown and stopped by the Goodwill. The staff recognizes me as a regular-LOL.  I managed to pick up some nice goodies for under $20 total!

The olive pants are Venezia. They were only $3 and will become capris as they are a bit short. You’d think I was the Jolly Green Giant with my long legs. Unfortunately the upper half is stubby and chubby!! The blouse is a silky polyester short sleeve button front by Liz Baker for $3. I probably would’ve passed it by before I started blogging and reading style blogs. I’ve already mentally styled several outfits with it!! The stone khaki jeans are by CJBanks and were $3. I’ve been looking for a pair of jeans/khakis in that shade so I was THRILLED to find them!!

I couldn’t pass up adding to my shoe hoard!!!  This Goodwill always has great shoes. There must be a lot of shoe diva’s in Hagerstown that donate to Goodwill. I’ve been asked if there is anything special I do with thrifted shoes before wearing. I go over them with a Lysol wipe really well and then spray up with Lysol to kill any foot cooties.

Tan Loafers by Lands End (never worn)$3, Madden Girl Black Leather Kitten Heels $3, Dockers Black Leather Wedge Sandals $3

And now to today’s outfit. I started out with red jewelry but when I was getting ready to change out my purse I fell in love with the contrast of the aqua blue with the red, black and white. That aqua purse is sure getting a lot of play in my wardrobe! I decided to change out my jewelry to aqua blue.  My toenails were already painted aqua so even they matched!!

Jacket-Charter Club via Goodwill, Blouse-Goodwill, Pants-Black Denim via Dressbarn, Shoes-Chart House via Goodwill, Purse via Goodwill, Necklace-vintage thrifted.

The pants are another pair that I can now fit into again after several years. The blouse is white pin dots on black seersucker. I have another in orange with white pindots.  Outside of the pants the outfit cost under $20.

Aqua toes and red wedge sandals!

The hubster is making noises hinting he needs the laptop to do some homework. I will be so GLAD when this semester is over and he graduates!!

I’m linking up with Patti at Not Dead Yet for Visible Monday#38.

Everyone have a great weekend!



  1. It is always so wonderful to be able to fit into pants one hasn’t been able to wear for a long time. I was doing pretty good and then hurting my knee has resulted in me doing less exercise and gaining rather than losing.
    You look really fab in this outfit. I really like you in red. The purse is a great touch.
    You must have really great thrift stores in your town. I can guarantee our Goodwill has nasty shoes! Most of them I would’ve been ashamed to even give to charity they are so awful.

  2. I agree with Debbi – you do score some terrific finds at Goodwill, esp your new round-up of shoes! I like your red and teal look, Tamera, and thanks for sharing it with Visible Monday.

  3. I love your smile!! You did great at Goodwill…my family makes fun of me because I often go run “errands” after church! They know that is a code word for shopping! Looks like we have “errand” running in common!! Have a great week!!

  4. Look at you and your aqua toenails! Love the vivid colors — the blue handbag looks really nice against the reds, too!

  5. I can’t imagine having to share the computer! The aqua does look great with the orange. But, I am mostly envious of that stockpile of shoes! I thrift most of my shoes…but I’ve been going through a long dry spell without any finds.

    Look at you!! That red looks gorgeous on you! I’m with Terri on the computer thing….my computer is like my underwear drawer….very personal! LOL Hugs! Serene

  7. YAY! I am so glad I found you. You love to shop at the store I love best. “Le Gootville” I can’t wait till Monday and I will post one of my outfits I recently put together.

Thanks for visiting!! I love to hear what you're thinking!! I read all of your posts and will try to answer them!
