{outfit} Something In The Way She Moves

This past weekend I met up with Christine and Lydia for brunch and some shopping. There were supposed to be more of us, but the other girls couldn't make it...sad!  We enjoyed a lovely brunch at Nellie Green's and then headed to Coco's of Madison because they are having a $10 sale...everything is $10!!! While we were there I tried on so many great pieces, but walked out with a Marc Jacobs denim jacket, knee-length flared leather skirt and a burgundy oversized jacket (which the woman at the store said retailed for $500, wowie!)  I paid a measly $30, how awesome is that!?

On Monday I went out to breakfast with my Aunt, Uncle and cousin and we stopped at Uptown Consignment. They also had amazing pieces; we're talking a Proenza Schouler vest and Miu Miu dress (among other non-designer pieces!)  I found a pair of Dolce and Gabbana mary janes for $98; they fit perfectly and were in great condition, except one was missing a heel tip. I left without them and couldn't stop thinking about what I could wear them with, so I stopped at the store again on my way home to pick them up.  Because of the missing heel tip I got 20% off! YES!!! New tips have been ordered and once I put that on they'll be as good as new.
