Wardrobe building sale by sale

Yes! It’s Friday…aren’t October weekends simply the best?  Today, let’s discuss how I am wardrobe building sale by sale.

A reader recently commented on how expensive it is to completely change your wardrobe color palette…and I agree it is challenging.

However, I have sold many of my old clothes and put that money to use building a new vibrant autumn wardrobe through sales!  And this year, there have been some great sales!

I first tried this Chico’s Animal Print Crinkle Chiffon Shirt weeks ago when fall was beginning to hit the racks.

I really liked it  for it’s nice mix of oranges, yellows and a touch of purple….but I did not want to pay full price.  It is thin and I can only use it under a third piece.

However, for my new color focus a top like this is great to have as a transition piece…I will use it often leaving winter to spring.

So, when it began to drop…I ordered one.

I really like it with this Chico’s silk purple jacket that I have owned for years!  They were meant to be!

I have not paid full price for anything in my new wardrobe…I have been building it sale by sale!

In my recent online discussion with Susan, we discussed purchasing your colors when they are available, because they may not be next year.

That is what I have been doing with oranges and browns.  If the lovely warm burnt oranges and toasty browns go away, I will be set…at great prices.
