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!

So let’s start with The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book of May: Leopard!

First my dear blogging friend and co-host Shelbee of Shelbee On the EdgeThe Good Buy/Good-Bye Book: Leopard!The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book: Leopard!

“These fuzzy leopard sandals are absolutely a Good Buy!  I snagged them for around $10 at TJ Maxx a few years ago and they are my go to lounge around shoes and perfect for pedicure days especially when it’s cold.  The strap has a velcro closure which is really great for getting them on when my toenails are wet!” (I totally love them-Nancy)

The boots (Banana Republic) I received this past year from my husband as a Christmas gift and loved how they kicked a pair of jeans and sweater up a notch.

“I bought this gray and navy leopard sweater during my weekend getaway to Lake Placid with Shelbee.  I love how cozy it is and the toned down leopard print in these colors suits me much more than a traditional leopard print.  I will definitely be wearing this a lot when the weather turns cool again.  It is a Good Buy!”

The charming Gail from Is This Mutton  The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book: Leopard! If you’re nervous about wearing leopard print, try adding it in your accessories.  I was surprised to find how versatile this clutch is.  Leopard print in accessories acts like a neutral, so you can wear it to add a bit of edge to any outfit. It was a definite good buy!

I’ve got a good buy for you 😊 These boots were a real bargain from eBay. They were brand new and only about £30. I don’t wear them often because they’re not exactly “everyday” boots, but I think they’re fabulous and instantly transform a plain black outfit.

Hi I thrifted these leopard mo hair NWT @banannarepublic pumps for 5.99 great find so comfy.

Thanks, Michele.

The lovely Kellann of This Blonde’s Shopping Bag

“I have a thing for leopard accessories and feel they never serve me wrong! My leopard heels and my leopard flat sandals go with everything and add a little sass.

And at last my Good-Bye turned Good Buyskirts

In a few weeks you will see the story behind this skirt! It is a Good Buy now, however I wanted to say Good-Bye to it!
