On the way to a friends house, I decided to stop at the B Green Loft in Bloomsburg. I parked my car, got out and walked down the street only to realized I had walked past where I remembered the store to be. I turned around and walked down the block to the light, turned around and walked back to my car and paused for a moment. Puzzled, I popped my head into the jewelry store and asked the woman working there my feared question (did it close?!). She informed me with a smile it had moved down a block (sigh of relief!). I trekked down the street looking in each window until I found the beloved store of preloved. The new store was larger (Yay! They must’ve been doing well) and they had expanded an entire wall to jeans. The larger place didn’t feel as boutique-like as the previous location, but I figured they were still adjusting to the new location. I quickly scoured the racks (Hubster and my son were graciously waiting in the car) and came up with a few great finds.
With three weeks left before I return to school, I was looking for things that I can wear professionally and also casually. My first find was a cute little blue bohemian shirt that also has brown, white, tan and red on it. I was pretty sure I could pull this off with tan dress pants and the right accessories (and I was already designing the beaded chandelier earrings to go with this top).
The next top I found was purple, I’ve been buying a lot more purple in the past two years, maybe the great purple earrings Hubster bought me has something to do with it. The top was casual and yet perfect for layering with the next find.

The third shirt I found was a stretchy white 3/4 length sleeve dress shirt with a light purple pattern on it. Dress shirts never quite have the right fit, however this one seemed to be perfectly seamed (I had to).

I swung over to the pant/skirt rack and was disappointed to see such a small selection in my size. I did happen to find a nice side-zip pair of tan dress pants (originally from The Limited, can be seen in the first photograph). As usual, I’ll have to hem the legs up a bit, but they should be good to go.
Of course I didn’t need a bag and donated my 10¢ token to BTE. I left B Green loft with a small armful of preloved clothing and a smile on my face.
Which preloved find do you like best?
