We have a wonderful store in a nearby town called Celebrity Consignment. The first time I went into it, I was in Heaven! Apparently it’s owned by Whitney Houston’s aunt who is from this area. They get clothes from Whitney Houston, Queen Latifah, Diane Sawyer, Dionne Warwick, Alicia Keys and some more celebrities whose names escape me! My first buy was a donated skirt that belonged to Dionne Warwick! I found myself suddenly psychic, telling everyone to dial 900 numbers, and asking for directions to San Jose. I even met Ms Warwick there a few weeks ago when she was doing a book signing for a new kids’ book she has out. What a lovely woman?!
Well, Black Friday found Sweet Baby and me digging through celebrity cast-offs (okay, I was digging, he was sitting in a comfy chair keeping the world on it’s axis via his blackberry). I escaped that day with only two items, this lovely dress which loved on me the moment I slipped it over my head and an Alicia Keys skirt that I’ve been eyeballing since my first day in there a year and a half ago. At $50 this dress was truly a splurge for me, but the owner did mark it down from $65 so I still got a deal. I wore it dressy here, which of course is a no brainer, but I’m also seeing it with leggings and belted. Maybe in the summer over white pants with a pretty belt. I also just got a black blouse that would look cute under this. I think my “purdy gurl” dress and I have lots o’ good times ahead! Upcoming: my Alicia Keys skirt….gaaawjusss!
