Savvy Finds Thursday: Donna Karan and Black Halo

I've mentioned before that I purchased a skirt from a store that has a pretty interesting concept well the store is called It's A Wrap! in Burbank, CA.  According to their website they pick up wardrobe and props off the sets of or out of the wardrobe or prop departments of major motion pictures studios and independent production companies.  On top of the rack says what movie or TV shows the clothing are from.  I saw plenty of TV shows and this particular one is from  Hawthorne which is already cancelled.  It stared Jada Pinkett Smith and Marc Anthony.  I really wanted to see a rack from The Good Wife because I like the way Alicia and Diane's wardrobe but they didn't have one.  I saw plenty of DVF and some other designer goods.  I'm surprised I didn't see much Anthropologie items considering they are all over TV.  I used to help stylists shop at Anthro for TV shows at the Grove and they received I think it was 25% discount, but that was long ago then they returned whatever is not used.

These dresses and type of skirts are my ideal work attire.  Great for work and cocktails.  

I really like this skirt even though it's a little long but super stretchy.

Dona Karan skirt from It's A Wrap! $42

Turquoise necklace from Marshalls (old)
F21 tank $5
Banana Republic Leopard pumps $30

I think this dress needs to be a little tighter around the hips area?

Black Halo Shriver Dress with leather sleeves Orig. $440
Purchased at Nordstrom Rack $66
Gold and Turqouise Necklace from Philippines

Donald J Pliner leopard booties

Black Halo two toned Jackie O belted two toned dress Orig. 390
Nordstrom Rack $56 which is weird coz others are still $150 I guess it's because it's a smaller size? which shouldn't matter but hey I'll take it.

Vintage bracelet
Nine West nude pumps

Total Savings of $710


  1. Wow! This is one of my favorite posts of yours so far! First of all: the structure of both pencil skirts is insane, and that Donna Karan ruffle one - I want!

    Second, the jewelry! You have the most amazing pieces from the Philippines.

    Third, the leopard! The leopard shoes pair perfectly with these very lady-like ensembles. I might have to do an ebay search for those Donald J Pliner leopard booties...

    1. Thanks Erin! What size are you? I can check out my Nordstrom Rack to see if they have any left or similar. It was an awesome deal as well from $395 to $25.

  2. Rezel! That skirt is darling! As soon as I post this comment I'm going to search the internet high and low to see if I can find one.

  3. I love the concept of this store! we don't have anything like that in Chicago and I can imagine the fabulous items you'd find. Good wife is filmed in Chicago and I do love the fashion on that show!

    1. I think they only have two stores and both are in LA area. Next time I go I'll leave DH at home so I'll have more time to browse.
