The DVF Find & Hello Monday Linkup

Hey Strangers!

These last couple weeks have been insane; sorry for the unannounced radio silence.  Work was very hectic there for a bit, and it caught up with me.  I got hit hard by a nasty bug and while I'm much better now, I'm definitely still recovering.  Thankfully, we had a warm weekend earlier in February, so I still have a few looks left to share.

So a few months ago, the husband and I were grabbing Raising Cane's (have I mentioned I love chicken tenders?) and it's right next to my favorite TJ Maxx in St. Louis.  Favorite TJ Maxx sounds like a funny thing, right?  But this location has such a great designer section.  So, while we were in the area, husband asked if I wanted to make any other stops before chicken tenders, and I requested we peruse TJ Maxx.  Mostly I just wanted a couple new candles, but a little looking never hurt.  Right?  Well, I fell in love with this vest AND spied this skirt, but they only had a 2, and while it narrowly zipped, buying it that small was not responsible.  
After a bit of internet sleuthing I 1) found my size available online and 2) discovered the perfect sweater produced to go with it.  The sweater however was sold out EVERYWHERE.  Miraculously, while texting Annie whining about not being able to find an orange sweater to pair with this skirt, I decided to search for the DVF style one more time and I found it brand new with tags at The RealReal!  Since I had never shopped at The RealReal, I got $25 off my purchase, so it was such a bargain!  Such a shopping victory.
