    QC ...

    You are adorable. Thanks for the input.

    Was only joking, got a kick out of the names of the shops. :D

    Could be interested however, in cigarette pants (presume it means "slim") and the capris, ... as yes, I still wear them. In the old days we called capris ... clam diggers, and pedal pushers.

    Same thing, updated in name only!

    I also got some beautiful jewelry pieces there. Some of the wealthy women of Sarasota bring their discards there. One real silver and a grey onyx (or something like it) necklace was a steal at $23. I've gotten way more compliments on it than more expensive stuff that I have.
    Most people in Miami don't have the same tastes, so the consignment shops have been a wash. I may try Out Of The Closet for tops and stuff, but they're not reliable. I may also give Plato's Closet a shot. But it's not going to reap much. :p

    Context doesn't matter to this liberal it seems/ as long as it satisfies his godless dreams/ like monkeys throwing sh!t as castles in air/ as long as he throws/that is the extent of his care.

    I'm all Eileen Fisher, all the time. Great quality, and everything goes with everything. As of this summer, they have SHOES, too. :)
