Welcome to The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book!
Welcome! This is The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book!
Shelbee of Shelbee On the Edge and myself started this serie 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!
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!
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 email@example.com or to firstname.lastname@example.org
By joining The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book, you agree to receive a monthly reminder email for the linkup.
So let’s start with The GoodBuy/Good-Bye Book: Green!
First my dear blogging friend and co-host Shelbee of Shelbee On the Edge
I am a sucker for all things green. I had a hard time choosing which green things to share for this post. These two dresses are definitely Good Buys and perfect for nearly any occasion when I would wear a dress. The solid one is from Torrid and is so sassy. The floral one is from Dress Barn and is perfect for a Spring wedding or any other dressy occasion. I simply cannot say no to green!

I love the color green, yet I certainly don’t have a ton of it in my closet. Serendipitous though because I just purchased this green kimono (influenced by you, Shelbee) and posted it on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/p/BhEboNsn-GR/?taken-by=jtouchofstyle
My other photo is this green shirt that I’ve had for over 8 years at least. It’s one of my favorites because of the color and I remember buying it on sale for $15. The funny thing is the neckline can be pulled down to be off the shoulder, which I never realized until last year when that style was so big!!
Thanks for putting this together!!

“My favorite green outfit. Five years ago I had just moved into an apartment in November so I couldn’t afford to go home for Christmas. I bought this hat at Kinney’s for $2 and wore it when I sang carols at Samaritan Keep with some friends. It turned out to be an amazing Christmas seeing the joy on the seniors faces, especially since some did not have family visiting for the holiday. It was the best Christmas gift. Each year I wear the hat and reflect on the memory.”
And Anne of Spy Girl
I got this green/blue/black striped bodycon dress in 2012? 2011? I wear it A LOT (and not always with black capri leggings, I swear! It’s a great piece for travel — light, rolls up into a tiny shape, no wrinkles. I now have to wear it backwards, but that’s OK.

Here is Kellyann of This Blonde’s Shopping BagThe bright green pants are several years old from Gap but I love the fabric they’re made of and the color. Surprisingly they pair well with so many colorful tops!
Last fall I found an amazing buy at Target. It was an olive green military style jacket and it was right on target for my needs. This jacket is great for layering over T-shirts, tops or dresses. Plus, it’s lightweight enough for Florida temperatures. Best of all it was priced at around $25.00. This was when I first got my jacket and I was grabbing it and adding it to my jeans outfit on an ordinary day as I ran out the door.
And my Good Buy and Good-Bye in one outfit!
I love a monochrome look and I love green. The jacket is a fantastic buy, I love this one so much! The skirt however….. I don’t know, there is something about it I don’t like. I would love your suggestions of how to style it!
Thank you all so very much for joining us! I love to see all your photos and the stories behind it, and I sure my dear blogger friend Shelbee does too! Next month we will do two different posts, on each our blogs!
We hope to see you next month with the theme: Leopard print!
