Outfit Of The Day: Turquoise

Shirt: Express {here}
Knit Pants: Ann Taylor {similar here}
Cardigan: Express {similar here}
Shoes: Christian Louboutin "Decoltissimo," thrifted {similar here} {and here} {and here for $35}
Necklace: Saks Fifth Avenue outlet {similar here}
Bracelets: Target and Vintage
Watch: Michael Kors {here} {and similar here}
Ring: Kendra Scott "Tela" in Tigerseye {here}

Friday was a good consignment store shopping day. This is why I like going - the inventory is always a surprise. I found these Louboutin Decoltissimo's for not-too-much money (relatively speaking), they happen to fit perfectly, and they're all broken in, ready-to-wear! I found the original receipt in the box - an inside peek to the history of these shoes. They were purchased at Neiman Marcus in Beverly Hills, CA, in 2006. How they made their way across the country to Atlanta, I don't know. But there was also a handwritten note which said,
"E, I know you are the globetraveler with so many different 
currencies - how you can keep them apart. Love, B
Interesting, eh?

Love turquoise on you Mary Ann!
And how cool to find a reciept and a handwritten note in your latest (beautiful!) purchase. Makes you wonder what type of woman 'E' was and her story...
Oh, and Bandit is looking as cute as ever :-)
Have a great week!

You seriously find the most interesting left behinds in your purchases! I remember when you told me about the cigarette cases on ebay too :) Enjoy your CLs ;)

Great and fun! Every time better!

Jessica said...

What an incredible find, Mary Ann! The note in the box makes them even more special - and lends a bit of mystery to the shoes. And your turquoise necklace is a dream - I can never get enough of that color!

I LOVE your necklace! such a pretty color

PetiteAsianGirl said...

Oh my, I love those shoes on you but even more so that there was a receipt and a loving note! What a score. I adore going thrifting but never have I found any 'hints of the past' with my treasures.
