These Boots Are Made For Walkin'

It's time for another thrifting update... I've acquired so many goodies lately, that I'll have to break it up into several posts. These Italian-made Sudini boots are my greatest find. Although I have a similar pair, I could not pass these puppies up. Knee high, black italian leather, great condition and exactly my size. For $5.00. Plus, they were 30% off. So, after tax, they were $3.50! Searching online, I found a similar style of Sudini boots for $133.00 on sale. I think I got a good deal. Here's a picture of the boot sole...
*blush* - yup, they're italian all right.
At a recent estate sale, I dug through an enormous box of jewelry for 30 minutes, then threw a few goodies in a small bag to check out. The woman running the sale charged me a flat rate. It's one of those things you don't know will happen until it happens. That means I walked away with this vintage Monet sterling silver bracelet for .60 cents. (It's much more sparkly in person.)
Last December, I tried on a black and white micro-plaid shirt at a department store. It was $50 and had 3/4 length sleeves - which I do not like because my wrists get cold. I put it back. At the thrift, I found this perfect condition shirt, in black and white micro-plaid, for $4.00. Bingo. Waiting 2 months saved me $46.00.
It works perfectly with my new boots, a pair of jeans and my shiny bracelet. If I'd bought everything new, my outfit would have cost over $200. But this thrifty gal only spent $8. Not bad!
