Urban Girls Garage Sale - March 17, 2013




After learning about this event taking place this Sunday in Belltown, I decided I should join in and that I am way overdue for a major closet purge and an opportunity to sell some fabulous garments, most of which are new or with tags.  I posted a selection of shoes earlier this week, but this is only a tiny amount of what I am prepared to let go of.  

Unfortunately I found out last night that I would only have an area for one 6’ table, and one garment rack at the sale.  Ack.  I probably should have purchased two spaces.  So with that, I have no idea where to take all of these things and I’ll only be bringing a small selection to the Urban Girls Garage Sale on Sunday.   I will likely bring them to a consignment store in the next few weeks.

Stylish Comfort Shoes and Boots - Do They Even Exist?




Let me start by saying that I am not a “comfort shoe” kind of girl, I love my Louboutins, and Manolos and anything that will give me 4-5 inches of height!  But at the same time, I have been known to rock some Dansko boots, or peruse a Walking Company store from time to time, just in case they have something for me.  This usually results in a wasted effort and I walk away with nothing. Most comfort shoes are horrendous.  Most are chunky, and heavy, and resemble orthopedic prescription shoes, and they are for the most part, just plain ugly.

Rieker Anti-Stress Valentina Boots



Rieker Anti-Stress Valentina Boots


So as I’ve stated in previous posts, I am not a big fan of synthetic leather.  During  a trip where I needed some comfortable boots, I decided to take a chance on the Reiker Valentina Boots and I am so glad I did!    The heel is approximately 3.5 inches, with a good rubber sole.  These are some of the most comfortable shoes I have owned, and kept my feet super comfortable during hours upon hours of walking and touring around London!  

Anthropologie Caledonia Cutout Dress



Anthropologie Caledonia Cutout Dress

We decided to spend the weekend in Portland and while out tax-free shopping I came across this dress on the sale rack.  I am not a big fan of the cutout look on a dress, shirt, etc. But for some reason this dress had my name all over it.  It’s fairly low cut, so I will need to find a tank to wear under it for work… But it’s also a dress with pockets! I love dresses and skirts with pockets!  The fabric is a thick knit and stretchy.  It’s cut generously, so sizing down isn’t a bad idea.  It’s a great dress and very flattering!

Rieker Anti-Stress Peggy Boots



Rieker Anti-Stress Peggy Boots

Hmm.. .I don’t know if I love the style of these.. But, they are super comfortable.  They were purchased while in London, and at a great price, so I kept them.  They make my legs look short if I wear them with a skirt, but if I wear pants it hides the cute straps. I needed them for the trip as I had a blister fiasco, and overall they have turned out to be a good throw on shoe for running around.

Rieker Anti-Stress Aurica Boots



Rieker Anti-Stress Aurica Boots - Black

Another fantastic Rieker purchase!  These are a low heel boot, but super comfortable and adjustable enough to fit on my wider calves.  I was desperately looking for boots that would be extra comfortable for travel and extensive walking and Rieker shoes always fit the bill!  Yes, some of the styles are horrible, but these were basic, black leather boots, exactly what I wanted!
