Irene, you hurrican't stop me from thrifting.

File this one under dedicated. Knowing this hurricane was coming towards the Triangle full force (so "they" said), we set our alarms super early to get to a charity sale this morning, thirty minutes away. Steven sent me a flyer from our local news about a "purses, pumps, and pearls" charity sale--rain or shine-- and he thought I'd like to go. Not only that, he offered to take me so I wouldn't have to brave the crazy weather by myself. (Yes, I know it. Husband of the year!) We got there a little later than we had planned (my wallet is thanking me) so some of the sale was a bit picked over. At first glance, all I saw were Vera Bradley's and faux Coach bags! It made things a little more challenging, however, I still lucked out! I scored 2 pairs of shoes, 3 purses, and 1 clutch for less than $100 and the money goes towards the N.Raleigh Ministires. Here are my exciting finds:

Don't laugh. Did you see EOS yesterday? Or Olivia Palermo? What about this gal?!
These will be a great addition for my fall wardrobe. $7!

Simply Adorable.

Ok, so I sort of "splurged" on this at $35, but it's Coach. LOVE!

Creamy and chic for any season. Or any trip to Italy...

Fun clutch for fall! 

And behold, FTW...
 Oh yes...yes they are.

I officially own my first pair of Manolos :) 7 bones, y'all. (A much needed pedi will cost more) eee!!!

STH and I came back and watched The Tourist (pretty similar to the Italian Job, but with much better fashion. And Johnny Depp). Irene is making her way through NC and luckily we were hardly affected here (just lots of wind, so far).We are happy to hear that our friends near the beach are doing well and that Goose Creek is hopefully still in tact. Lot's of prayers for the rest of those in Irene's path. 

Stay safe!
