Who's Wearing What Wednesdays

Who says you can't look good on a budget?  Try telling that to Antoinette of De Divah Deals.  I was happy to come across her blog on Sverve.  I enjoy fashion, and enjoy it even more when the price is right. And Antoinette knows how to find a good deal.

This lovely outfit she is wearing is composed of pieces that were purchased at Goodwill.  The blouse, with its bold color, pairs nicely with the printed skirt.  The belt looks amazing to be a thrift find, and so do the riding boots.  Antoinette adds a blazer to complete her look.  What a beautiful look for less!!  Check out more of her deals at her blog.

I've gotten a few great finds through thrift stores.  How about you? What has been your best thrift store purchase?

What are you wearing today?  Leave a picture or link to a picture in the comments section below.  Your look could be FEATURED tomorrow here on this blog!!  Find more information here.

Move Over Mashed Potatoes

Tired of the same old potato dishes?

Here's a new potato recipe you can try.  This Indian inspired dish, Aloo Tikki (potato cutlet) is made with a blend of potato and spices.  It uses few ingredients and is simple to prepare.  After mixing all the ingredients and binding with an egg, the mixture is formed into patties.  The patties are then pan fried to a golden brown.  They are served hot with mint yogurt.  They may also be served with curry or chutney.

JustFab Purchase: The Arrival

As most of you may know by now, I love to do online shopping.  One of my recent purchases is from  I now have a handbag that I've been eyeing for months now.  The Arrival is here. 

I love the bag because it has such a clean, simple design.  Yet, it also has a very classic style.  I usually purchase large bags, and this one is a nice size.  I like the depth of the bag and the color (I think this is the only navy purse I've ever owned).  I'm just not sure about the width.  I would like for it to be just a little wider.  But there seems to be enough room to carry my tablet and more.

So what do you think about the bag?  Do you think it's large enough?  Should I keep it or return it?  I would love to hear your opinion.
