Two Things: One Cheap and One... Not So Much

I picked up a boatload of dry cleaning from Roger's Cleaners* on Friday. One item was the heather grey/kelly green, plaid, wool blazer I picked up at Goodwill a few weeks ago. From the tag, I would judge it to be GAP circa mid-1990's. It's a little on the small side in the sleeve length and shoulder width, but I couldn't pass it up for under $4.00. Check out a similar one (blue and grey plaid) on this auction page — size small, $7.00.

I'm also wearing another new addition to my wardrobe (if you can consider eyewear to be part of your wardrobe). I had my first adult eye exam on Friday — and viola — I needed some help with my distance vision. I was written a mild prescription and promptly shopped for a pair of spectacles. Looking back, I could have found a pair I loved elsewhere (good tip, Julia!) and just had the lenses made. That could have saved me $100 or so. But I loved these fun Donna Karan frames and wanted instant gratification! Silly Katy... It is nice to see street signs sans fuzziness. I'll just keep telling myself that it would have been tough to buy online, like from this eBay seller, without trying on the frames in person.

*Note: I need to do a post solely dedicated to Roger's at some point — amazing folks.
