Friends, I cannot stop my latest addiction.
Brook and I hit up our favorite thrift store again on Saturday and I spent every dollar in my wallet. Four hours later I was treasure hunted out, but check out my latest scores:
a dress by Mustard Seed.
i love the zipper, gathered waistline and the rolled up sleeves.
Kenneth Cole blazer that is a tad big, but I might wear Kendi style with either the sleeves rolled up, or scrunched.
H&M blazer. This kind of reminds me of a marching band uniform. Which is awesome because I didn't go to a real school and never could be that nerd-tastic until now.
this Ann Taylor Loft cropped blazer (I supplied the vintage gold button)
a Poetry tunic
belt with an awesome buckle
and my fav: a beautiful soft leather Sigrid Olsen handbag in perfect condition.
I've always been the kind of girl who buys a $30 purse, uses it every day for a year and throws it away for a new one. I'm just not a purse person.
But I can already tell after using this purse, that I'll never buy a really cheap one again.
Some thrifting notes:
The disadvantage of the particular store we visit is that there are no fitting rooms.
So our #1 rule is to dress in flip-flops, leggings, and a tank top.
Rule #2 is to look out for items to re-sell, to make up some of the money I spent on myself.
Whatever I buy that I don't like, doesn't fit or doesn't work for whatever reason I've put up for sale on my eBay account, with a few other trinkets.
