steals and deals: a crime of fashion

It’s summertime.  It’s hot, like really hot.  You have the day off and you’re debating what to do.  You don’t want to stay home, but the pool will be too crowded and you’ve already seen all of the good summer movies.  Shopping sounds fun, but you don’t want to break the bank.  Thankfully, I have the perfect solution.  A solution that my mom, sister, and I accidentally stumbled across when we were in Indianapolis buying a car.  But don’t worry.  It has nothing to do with cars.

Lacoste Beam Metallic Flats
Carmel Consignment.  It is a fabulous little shop filled with high-quality brands and amazing deals.  We spotted the store when we stopped for lunch just outside of Indianapolis and decided to poke our heads in just to kill some time.  Instead we ended up spending hours browsing their endless racks of great clothing and walked away with bags of deals.  They had everything for both men and women from tops and bottoms to bags, jewelry, and shoes.

Pastel Petal Perfect Shirt
Two of my favorite pieces were the adorable Fiji Floral sweater from J. Crew, which retailed at $88, and the Pastel Petal Perfect Shirt from J. Crew, which retailed at $80.  Both were in good as new condition, and I bought both for under $10.  But my find of the day was a pair of Lacoste Beam Metallic flats.  I had just finished stating that I never bought used shoes unless they were really awesome when I turned around and spotted them.  Their retail price was around $50, and I purchased them for $10.

So if you’re in or around Indianapolis, make sure to stop in and take a look around.  It will be well worth your time and money.  If you’re not from around here, take the time to discover a consignment shop near you.  Finding that cute new piece for your wardrobe is always fun, but finding it for five dollars . . . well you almost feel like it’s a crime.
