Thrifty Tuesday

Welcome to THRIFTY TUESDAY!! Here you will see my thrifty finds of the week and I'd LOVE to see what you found too!! 

While thrifting in DeKalb I found this FAB purse! Jenny grabbed it before I could...luckily she also couldn't see herself using it on a daily basis...Not that I could....Ok, who am I kidding, I could totally use gold, leopard and tortoise chain everyday - RIGHT?!?!?! 

 Yes friends, that is a BETSY JOHNSON purse....from the Pussycat Doll collection....can we say LOVE!?!!? And now that I heard the sad news that Betsy has filed bankruptcy, I feel like her pieces are even more rare now...she will still be producing a line for Macy's (which is a yay! Because it will be more affordable BUT boo because her stores were so CUTIE!!).

And while on the topic of handbags....I have been on the hunt for a fabby new purse (there was a Betsy Johnson at Tj Maxx last week BUT as you know, you snooze you loose....we went back to get it and it was LONG gone  - insert sad face here). While at Goodwill yesterday (one of the expensive ones...that has a set price for shirts, dresses, etc) I found this awesome tangerine colored handbag...see the cute slower detail? The beads - almost pearl like in the center of each flower....BRAND NEW and only $3.49

I also have been DYING for some fun and funky wedges BUT just don't want to spend $30.00 at Target ...see, I told you, I am "thrifty"!! At the same GW, I found these BRAND NEW FUN colored wedges....

I LOVE accessories! They ALWAYS fit and can totally transform that ho-hum outfit into WOW! Or by changing accessories makes the same outfit look new! Here are a few things I found last week:

Crystal and gold chain, big bold gold ball necklace from Talbots...

The necklace on the left is for a project á la Tamera Beardsley (when I make it I will feature my take and HER original link) and do you see that FABBY McFab white necklace on the right?!?! The ball is huge and reminds me of a brain BUT I LOVE it! It'll look so sharp paired with a collared shirt.

Tell me about YOUR favorite find!
