Burrrr Baby

"Winter is Coming!" Yes, that's a Game of Thrones reference.  Yes, I'm missing G.O.T. Yes, I can't wait for Season 8.  Anyway, enough about that.  I'm legit warning you that "Winter is Coming!"  When I stepped out of my house this morning, I was disappointed that I did not remote start the whip.  That's usually my first indicator that short sleeves, no tights and open toe shoes are exiting stage left until April.  So what did I do as soon as I sat down at my desk this morning? Look for coats of course! One of my go to spots year-after-year for good quality, reasonably priced, plus size women's coats is Jessica London.  I literally buy three things from this online plus size store that Momma BBBThink put me on to years ago.  Those three things; tights, boots and coats.  I openly admit that I'm not a huge fan of their clothing.  They're apparel tends to look a little older/mature.  However, I am a fan of their boots and coats, they're classic and quality.  Another great thing about this shop, they ALWAYS have some type of sale, anywhere from 25 to 50 percent off. So in my morning "Burrrr Baby" search on Jessica London, I came across these hotties.  All under 200 bucks might I add!  Let me know your thoughts on which one or two I should add to my beloved collection.

Oldie But Goodie

I've often advocated for re-purposing, re-wearing, re-accessorizing veteran items.  I don't want to call them old because maybe you've only owned that top for a year or two.  However, it feels old because you wore it often, or took one too many pics for Facebook or IG wearing it.  Whatever the case is, I'm here to tell you that you can reinvent the wheel.  Don't give up on that two seasons ago maxi dress that's the go to for every cookout.  Just find a new way to rock it.  As you know, I'm still on my frugally fly kick... #adultgoals. Therefore, I'm making it a point not to buy new clothes but instead revitalize the veteran.  So here are just a few of my recently worn oldie but goodie ensembles.

Top - 3 years old, Pants - 3 years old, Purse - 2 years old, Shoes - 1 year old

Jumper - 4 years old, Purse - Vintage but 5 years old to me, Shoes - new but not pictured

Dress - 1 year old, Shoes - 2 years old
