A Twist Of Thrifty Fate

Exactly one month ago I took a little road-trip off the beaten path to Goodwill (alright so I knew where I was going) and I found too many good things!  You may recall I posted about this perfect fitting DVF dress that I wore to a glamorous 60th wedding annivesary  party for my style confidant Lynn Dell and husband Sandy. 

That very same day I came across some bold snake-print pants by Guess but had to dwindle down my pile and decided against them.  Back they went into the wild racks of pants but ever since that day I couldn't get them out of my mind. Not that I need another thing in my closet but RED + SNAKESKIN + PANTS --- you do the math.

Well as the thrift-universe would have it and mostly because mostly no one else fantasizes about red snakeskin pants, after falling asleep on the train today and being jolted awake at the exact stop you need to access Goodwill - a twist of thrifty fate brought us together again. There they were nestled snugly in the wild racks.  Why did no one adopt you pants? I think you deserve a loving home and for $9.99 I'd be happy to take you with me. 

Are you ready for the icing on the cake? With just enough Club Goodwill points they ended up costing me nothing! Nada. Zip. Zero. Zilch. Nothing!  I even took a picture of the receipt so you can see what fate looks like. And they say adoption is expensive! Pshaw.
