Like New… previously loved and new clothes

Earlier this week after a quick round of errands I stopped by my fave consignment shop on Genesee Avenue in San Diego. I’m seriously in search of spring and summer dresses and figured I’d see if it was my lucky day.

The racks were overflowing with cute dresses in a variety of sizes and colors. I found a flirty Jason Wu for Target dress $14.95 that I really liked– unfortunately it was a shade too small. There’s always next time, right? I also found some super amazing high heel sandals Size 8 that would be perfect with jeans $22.95. The shoes were a size too big for me. (I’m sounding like the Three Bears of Shopping– this one’s too small, this one’s too big….) Sometimes it’s the thrill of the hunt and just shopping and trying things on is one step closer to finding what I want.

I always stop by Like New when I’m in the area. The stock rotates frequently and there’s always a rack or two of sale items out front.

Right now– all I can think about is those black heels in Size 8. (I’m probably the only woman alive who wishes she wore a larger shoe size!)

Are you looking for some fun animal print heels? Or maybe a pair of fantastic sandals for Spring? Or are you hoping for a few last minute winter bargains? Well– have I got the place for you! My favorite neighborhood consignment boutique has all of the above and then some. I stopped by earlier this afternoon and was greeted by a table of 45% off winter boots. Wonderful! There were several racks of awesome sweaters and jackets outside the store as well. I spotted a nice black sweater from White House|Black Market for $32 perfect to wear as a wrap when the office A/C gets a little too cool.

As I said, this boutique is in my neighborhood, I shop it regularly and have consigned my own things on occasion. I was thrilled when I saw their 2012 Calendar of Events. March 3 & 10 are scheduled as Winter Blowout Sale. Coming up March 12 Spring Consignment begins. (Time to clean out the closet??) April 2 is April Fools Day Sale with 35% off. Here are a few photos of what I liked today (the animal print heels $16.49 are my fave!) Although the Kate Spade bag was a close second. But not to be outdone by the cute black dress which quite possibly I will return for on Monday.
