It had been several months, and I hadn’t been to Glad Rags resale store in Bay City, Michigan. Thank goodness my friend was minding the store for owner Mary Bush in January. I drove over, parked the car, walked inside, and stayed for hours. We caught up on our lives while I tried on a bunch of stuff.
With capes being all the rage these days, it was hard to walk away from the cozy reindeer wrap.
And this (not real fur trimmed) jacket didn’t make the cut because I have something kinda like it already.
This jacket almost made the cut, but it was a smidge too small across the shoulders. Notice that I try on mostly everything black because I wear mostly black. And red, with a little black.
This black and silver Joseph Ribkoff jacket fit me perfectly. And bonus! There’s a matching skirt.
And this? No way would I leave the store without this last-minute find.
I didn’t bring this jumpsuit home.
The store is a trip back in time, a clash bang of styles, and a pure delight for the fashionista.
These St. John size 2 trousers retailed at $795, but were priced $100 at Glad Rags. A true designer find for a tiny fashionista (not me.)
The window displays were pink and yellow.
I’m not sure if these are sanboots or boodals.
I don’t know what these are, other than fabulous.
Fabulously weird, that is.
Three more traditional shoe choices.
And for whenever your life needs platform boots and bows…
In the end, I stayed (more or less) on budget, and came home with interesting additions to my wardrobe.
Edit: Glad Rags closed in late 2016.
