How is it possible that it’s Thursday already? I’m finding time moves more quickly the older you get and of course the busier you are, trying to live in the moment becomes increasingly more difficult. Going back in time a few years my husband (who is an avid thrifter) and I were out shopping on street in LA full of thrift and consignment shops. We came upon a very high end consignment store that carried amazing vintage couture clothing which was way out of my price range so I left empty handed. We then proceeded down the street to the “Out of the Closet” where I not only scored this vintage Claude Montana trench coat but also a Moschino Cheap & Chic blazer each for under $20. I also purchased a few other less noteworthy items and I left beyond thrilled with my thrifted treasure trove. Don’t you absolutely love those occasions when you are at the right place at he right time?
