Introducing my favorite place to shop...The Walk-In Closet Resale Boutique

On Friday at work, I got a lot of compliments on my outfit. My co-workers and students (3 fifth grade girls) told me I looked comfy and cute. I was definitely comfy.

Since I've lost some weight, I need to buy new clothes about every three months. This is costly, but Brian has been very understanding and supportive. To help save some money, I've been shopping the clearance racks and a resale shop. The resale shop is amazing! My friend (Lauren) introduced me to the Arnold Walk-In Closet. The store is full of today's hottest brands and styles with hundreds of new items arriving weekly. They recently opened their second location, The Walk-In Closet Resale Boutique in Festus, MO. I've been able to purchase lots of new clothes with tags still attached at very low prices (seriously, a ton of their stuff is brand new!!). Some days when I go shopping, I come out with bags of clothes. Other days I don't find anything, but that's the fun of shopping at a resale shop. You never know what you're going to find. 

One of my favorites I found at The Walk-In Closet Resale Boutique was a puffy vest. I've been wanting one for a while, but didn't know which color to buy. My conservative side told me to buy gray or black. I decided to take a risk and buy the red one instead. I brought it home and it hung in my closet for a couple of weeks. 

I've been trying to find ways to wear my puffy vest, besides with just a plain long sleeve t-shirt. Friday, I wore the vest with a striped button down shirt and scarf. It felt like a risk, because my vest and scarf seemed like an odd combo. Evidently it worked. The ensemble was paired with skinny jeans and ankle boots. 

Vest: St. John's Bay $10 (The Walk-In Closet)
Button down shirt: Old Navy $6 (The Walk-In Closet)
Scarf (gift from a friend)
Super Skinny Jeans: American Eagle clearance $18
Ankle Boots: $20 (Factory Connection)
Let me know what you think. 

Thanks to Sister Sue for taking my picture for this post. She's a great sidekick! 


  1. I love that store and those boots are so cute. I love how you always pair patterns and colors that I never would have thought of as a match!

  2. Looks great! That's how my girls wear theirs! Red is always a great choice! Think of it like a throw pillow, you need a pop of color!

    1. I never thought of my accessories being like throw pillows. That's a great analogy.
