This isn't the case everywhere, but our Goodwill gets salvage from Target. Over the past 2 months, I bought up Missoni pieces that were coming to our Goodwill with tags for $1 a piece (sometimes less). I then eBayed nearly all of the Missoni items making as much as $80 on 1 sale. Talk about JACKPOT. As a stay-at-home mother, I am always looking for ways to save and make money. And boy, did I make some money on that Missoni. I added up all of the price tags and accumulated over $1000 of Missoni, which cost me less than $50.

All of that to say, I went shopping for myself yesterday, and it felt great. I usually get buyers remorse, but this time, I knew I deserved a little something. Besides, we saved up the majority of what I made...

Welcome to my closet:

skirt // blazer // dress // swimsuit // necklace // shoes

- That maxi is seriously going to get lost in my collection, but everyone needs a casual solid black one, something I didn't have. 
- As for the blazer, I have been on the hunt for a flattering white one, and I finally stumbled across one at a good price point. Perfect fit, perfect look. 
- That dress! What can I say? It had me at hello.
- It's official. I'm a one-piece mom. Dun, dun, dun. I had a major FML moment and decided that this is one way of battling the post-baby lack of abs. I feel really good in it too, and that's all that really matters, right?
- This necklace needs no explanation. It's beautiful and inexpensive. Done.
- I'd been wanting some grayish oxfords just like these. They will be the perfect shoe to wear with trousers this Spring! Can't wait.

Now, getting down to business... it's time to announce the Zhush giveaway winner. 

Congrats to #29, Sarah! You are a lucky lady.

You found some great pieces! I love the white blazer.

I bought my first one piece swimsuit last year. I feel like now that I am in my 30s, its time to start making more "mature" wardrobe choices :)
