Into the Wild

One of my favorite second hand shops, Coco's on the Green has a smaller sister store a few towns over, and while I don't go there all to often, it seems that every time I do, they are having a half off the entire store sale.

I wasn't even planning on going in, they were literally closing in a minute, but when it comes to half off everything, I am like a moth to a flame.

I did a quick lap around the store and zeroed in on this metallic animal pencil skirt, which was reduced to $15.

It's a pretty unique piece, and not too over the top. It felt very me - classic, but quirky (and half off). So I had to have it.

I LOVE this pencil skirt, Lyddie! It's a whole new take on the animal motif trend, quite unique and the vintage feel is just exquisite! I also love that long pendant necklace, it's really pretty!

That skirt is such a neat find. Seriously, the print on that is so unique... wish I could find some neat prints that like! I bet you'll have fun remixing it. :D And oh gosh that necklace is such a bold touch! It makes your outfit give off this Egyptian vibe... yes, Egyptian Lady Lyddie. Sounds nice, no?

Its hard to leave things behind when they are cute and reasonably priced. This is why have to stay away from TJ Maxx or I would blow every paycheck there.
