Wednesday Wardrobe Watch! - Cost per Wear

Fall like spring are hard seasons to dress for, is going to be warm or cool, and if you live on the west coast rain or shine! This heavy stretch cotton dress is perfect for those transitional days, short enough for warm days but warm enough for when the early evening chill sets in! I purchased this dress in 2012 for full price as I loved it so much and have worn it often. This dress is a prime example of cost per wear shopping! $120 at 5 wears a year for 2 years = @12 per wear!

Shoe Fetish

I love shoes! Heels have become my trademark, I basically wear heels everyday. If there is one thing to know about me it is: if I am wearing flats or pants (jeans are an exception) I am not well!

Unfortunately I have very small feet, a size 5-5.5 so finding fabulous heels locally can be a challenge and most small footed ladies do not give up their shoes to thrift easily. 

I love unusual heels and recently  found two very distinctive pairs, some monochrome checkered peep toes on sale at Zara, and some fabulous pumps in four vibrant colours at a thrift store!
