Yesterday's Adventures

This is my outfit from yesterday.  In the morning I went to Fabric Depot to check out the Outdoor Sale before it ended.  Wow!  I hadn't been there in years and I forgot how huge it is!  I walked in the front door, and I think I gasped audibly.  So much fabric!  I felt like a kid in a candy store.  Fabric in every color and pattern you could think of.  For example, they saw a small section labeled "Food Prints."  Strawberry, banana, even onion ring fabric.  But I exercised self control and meandered towards the Outdoor Sale.  I found some knit fabric, lace and elastic that I'm sure will surface on the blog soon in one form or another.  :)

After dragging myself away from there, I decided to go to Goodwill to look for work shoes.  I got sidetracked (of course) and ended up walking away with these.

This sweater had a color of the day tag, so I got it for $4.  I'm honestly not sure if it's men's or women's.  But who cares.  :)  I know that big, comfy sweaters are "in" for fall, so I'm pretty sure I'll get some good wear out of it, especially on cold, lazy days.  I tried it on with a scarf just to invision myself wearing it as part of a complete outfit.

My other find I'm not completely sold on.  I'm contemplating returning it.  I found it in the men's section, even though it is actually a women's shirt.

I've been wanting a plaid shirt, but the sleeves are at the point where they're almost too small length-wise.  I haven't made up my mind about it yet.  It's American Eagle, and in good condition... What do you guys think?  Should I hold out for one that I love more?  And I really would like your opinions.  :)
