Five Dollar Finds


The Goodwill has been my good friend in the last couple of months. I’ve been finding some great finds such as these Chico’s pants aka another pair of printed “pajama pants” for the outrageous price of $3.99!  

Let me tell you how I got lucky with this price.  As I was checking out, I mentioned to the cashier how much I loved these pajama pants and as she typed into the cash register she yelled, “One pair of  pajama pants $3.99.” I smiled inside because I knew I got a deal!  The cashier had no clue these were not real pajama pants and I guess she didn’t see the March issue of Elle magazine‘s editorial on printed pajama pants.


The magazine showcased pajama pants from such designers as John Galliano, Tucker, BeBe and United Bamboo…all well priced over $100.


Well kudos for me because I got the look for less…..It pays to use fashion jargon!

  8. I'm not too keen on the pajama pants craze. I did it a couple years back during college. Not many were keen of the look when I was sporting it but what a difference a few years makes. Now I'm the one not impressed. But to each his own. I like your take on it, though! It's adorable and fun! Not slouchy, sloppy and oversized. My favorite part of the ensemble? The sandals and clutch. Keep up the extraordinary work!
