People often ask me where is a good place to shop. Shopping karma can happen, or not, anywhere. Look many places online and brick and mortar as well. Friends’ closets also work. Though I must say if you are on a tight budget for both dollar and time, check out SammyDress . A year or more ago I would have scoffed at such “cheap” made in China “crap”. But my lasses, a budget is a budget and most of what you find at modern stores is this same stuff with hiked prices. Sometimes, what matters more is how you wear it. I don’t support mass manufacturing of fashion like this, but if you’re going to do it, get it here instead of Macy’s. Second-hand stores and garage sales, etc. where vintage may be had can offer the best bang for your buck, but that is also a time and gas situation unless you belong to online communities who trade and sell. Meanwhile, also check out the Sacramento Antique Faire. My ring is family heirloom, the purse and gloves are online community trade and shopping. I found my hat at Rack’s Boutique in Sacramento, and this coat at the Folsom Antique Fair. Happy hunting, dames.
