Mama's Got a Brand New Bag (of clothes I didn't buy)

The other day I found Pigtails trying on her sister's red sparkly shoes (Shhh, don't tell Princess Sparkles).  I thought it was funny since just a month ago she would SCREAM bloody murder when I'd put anything on her feet.  That included socks.  Which is SO NOT COOL when you're walking around the mall because older ladies WILL STOP YOU and tell you that your baby is cold (She's not, but thanks). 

I really admire and appreciate my extremely fashionable friend, Fierce, for always "editing" her closet and allowing me to benefit.  She recently gave me a bag of clothes which included three pairs of jeans (including these great high waisted bell bottoms) and some adorable, comfy tops.  While this is great in terms of making me feel like I went "shopping" without really shopping, it does make it hard for the remix because I so want to wear my new clothes, but have to stick to my 30 pieces.  Here's what she gave me... 


TORQUISE TOP - Banana Republic, RUST TOP - Zara, BROWN SWEATER - Twelfth Street


JEANS:  (L-R) J Brand, 7 for All Mankind, Paige Premium Denim


CARGO PANTS - Joie, OLIVE SHORTS - Lux Lux

I still have another month of my shopping fast and another 20+ days of remixing.  The first week of remixing was a breeze because I had all those pieces to work with, but as I'm going into week 2 I'm realizing I have my "favorite pieces" (usually the most comfortable ones which also seem to be the easiest to match with... like my striped shirt and my floral dress!  And don't worry, I'll post today's outfit along with tomorrow's).  I'm counting down the days until I can wear Fierce's cute clothes.  Like Pigtails with Princess Sparkles' red sparkly shoes... everything is always so much more exciting when it belongs to someone else!

You scored. I love the jeans and they are all brand name too. You are so lucky.
I need to go on a shopping fast. I am thinking April might be the month.

Wow. You're friend doesn't mess around with giveaways. I'm usually the giver not the givee but a girl can dream. . . :)

Why old ladies think that babies need to be bundled in 100 layers is beyond me. Hot, cranky babies are not fun.

I am seriously considering trying this 30 for 30 or whatever it is called...sounds like a good challenge! Those olive shorts look amazing. I'm planning on going through my close next week and my sisters and my mom are going to feel like they went shopping too :D

I will never understand why other people think it's ok to randomly weigh in on your parenting decisions. WHO DOES THAT?!?!?

Anyway, I'm so jealous of your bag o' clothes :)

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

I love the idea of remixing...I think a shopping fast sounds pretty good too! My friend introduced me to consignment shops just recently, and I think I might start checking those out more! A girl can never have enough clothes...or awesome friends who are willing to let you raid their closets, lmao!!!!

Megan said...

Jessica said...

Awesome save from shopping! Those are some great adoptions to your closet!
