Before I started blogging, about 6 years ago, I only wore solids. And occasionally some stripes. Now I love stripes, especially with a floral print! Yes you read that correctly, print on print. But I’ll bet we all have something striped in our closets don’t we?
Shelbee of Shelbee On the Edge and myself started this series after we had hosted The Bad Buy Book for a year. Now we are ready for a new challenge! Every 15th of the month we show our Good Buy or Good-Bye item. And we want you to join!
What is The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book about?
It is a collage of outfits! You can choose yourself whether you want to show a Good Buy (which is an item you are really exited about) or a Good-Bye ( which is an item you are going to say good bye to). We will keep buying a Bad Buy from now and then, you know, it was so cheap, you were in a hurry and really wanted(needed) to buy something etc. But of course we also have those purchases that can make us so very happy. A piece of clothing that you have had for years and that you also wear a lot. Or something you bought on a holiday, and every time you wear it you get that holiday feeling back. Every month you can choose which item you want to send in. A Good Buy or a Good-Bye. We will provide a theme for each month!
So let’s start with The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book: Stripes!
First my dear blogging friend and co-host Shelbee of Shelbee on the Edge
I am sending you a photo of my striped dress that I bought at a huge end of season sale. What attracted me to it were the oversized sleeves that are very trendy, it’s immaculate cut and the boldness of the stripes. This is a statement dress where more is more and is not for the faint hearted and it was a Good Buy.

Here’s my good buy for the stripes theme. I wasn’t sure how much I’d wear this crop top when I found it for a steal, but I like how it counteracts the frump…especially when I wear capri pants!!
I found these new-with-tags at a thrift store a couple of years ago, and although I’ve only worn them four times (so far), they are definitely a Good Buy! I love the graphic black and white print, and that the stripes are lined up all the way around, and matched leg-to-leg. Such a great sign of quality.

And here are my stripes.
Stripes on stripes! Double the fun. Although the blouse was a Good-Bye. I don’t like light blue at all! And I don’t like a bow on that place. The skirt was a Good Buy though.
We hope you enjoyed all the stripes and hope that you are joining us next month!
September’s theme will be: Black&White!
Send your photo with a few sentences if it is a Good Buy or a Good-Bye and we will put you in the spotlights! Send it please before the 10th of each month to firstname.lastname@example.org or to email@example.com
