No Celery Please – NYC Edition!


People Just Give This Stuff Away!

Posted in Goodwill Outfit of the Day by noceleryplease on January 7, 2013

Sometimes I am just shocked at the stuff people will jut GIVE AWAY to the Goodwill.

I would NEVER have tossed either of these, even if they are a bit worn. Age builds character, don’t you know?

Anyway… At least these didn’t end in a land fill.

And I am now carrying my new to me Fossil purse and wallet!

Forgotten and Found!

Posted in Fashion,Goodwill Outfit of the Day by noceleryplease on November 29, 2012

I was looking through my scarf cupboard yesterday to see what I wanted to wear today and I found three silk scarves that I TOTALLY FORGOT my mom had given me from her closet.

With all my Goodwilling, I have become something of a label whore.

And what was in my cupboard?

Burberry! Christian Dior! Silk!

Ok… 25 years old… But so what! These babies are timeless!

Thankful for the Goodwill Outfits of the Day!

So once again, I have a super little outfit all thrifty like.

The Jacket came from – GASP – Value Village.. NOT Goodwill! But it was still thrifted 🙂

That skirt is J Crew… very nice.

Here’s a bit of a close up of the Jacket and necklace, since you can’t see the necklace too well in that picture above.

That face jug was given to me by my mother in law. I never wore it, because it was on a string, and just looked weird on a string by itself.

But then I took it and added BEADS! And he’s all cute now!

Crafty Conversion!

Before… a belt from the goodwill. NOT something I would wear…

After… Choker and Bracelet Sets. One for me, one for the niece.  Something I TOTALLY would wear!

Yay for recycling!

I bought this shawl not really having any idea what I would do with it… But rummaging for something to wear today I pulled this skirt out and the shawl was under it… And bam! It just kinda worked!

Goodwill Outfit of the VOTING Day!!

Posted in Goodwill Outfit of the Day by noceleryplease on November 6, 2012

So this was a little bit inspired by voting day for this outfit… In that I wanted to make sure that I had comfy shoes on to wait in the voting line…

Sadly for the Democratic Process, the lines were very short. Took me only 20 mins.

I am really hoping that the light line is because A) everyone voted early and B) I live on the side of town where most folks are hourly-type workers who can’t just go in late after voting.

Really hope the crowds get bigger later! Voting is important!

I will be interested to see how the elections turn out today. I feel pretty good that I voted for Democrats, Republicans, AND Libertarians!

This is double thrifty… My friend bought this dress at GW… THEN handed it down to me. Win!

Every single piece of this outfit is from the GW!

Note the awesomeness of the picture – had my niece the photographer take a few shots 🙂

I am lazy… And it’ so easy to use GOotD as a post 🙂

Love these tan jeans I got last week, though! And the necklace!

The sweater I got from GW a year ago. So glad it’s cold enough to get it back out!

Who in the Heck is This Person?!

Posted in Goodwill Outfit of the Day by noceleryplease on October 31, 2012

I have become such a GIRL!? I am wearing a brooch?! A PINK FLOWERY BROOCH!?!?

It’s totally cute, though 😉

I bought a jar full of beads at GW Sunday and the brooch was in there. So what the hell!

this really is something of a sea-change I am going through since I discovered how much fun it is to wear different “outfits”… it’s like getting to play dress up every day!
