thrifty
























today we hit every thrift store in a 25 mile radius. it was pretty fun. i got a few pieces for the shop and a few things for myself. and the boys got some stuff too.

there were a lot of sales going on this weekend, apparently. i bought a cardigan vest sweater what-have-you for 75% off, which translated to 73 cents. i mean, i've never heard of such a thing before! a pair of shoes for half price, so they were $2. i found a burberry jacket for $6!! i don't know what i'm going to do with it because it's big for me. all i know is that i couldn't possibly let it stay on the rack at goodwill. that would have been a tragedy.

i know this isn't like the best outfit i've ever put together, but it was comfy and worked well with the marathon thrifting we did today. i even wore my glasses. i don't know when this will happen again so i thought i'd let you see them will the getting was good.

the weather was phenomenal! sunny and in the upper 40s and a good breeze. sorry for all of you in new england. i've seen pictures and it doesn't look pretty. well, it looks pretty but i know it's a big pain and that lots of people are without power and are totally snowed in. i just hope that everyone is okay.

i rather like it! i was actually thinking about denim tops today and how i'm gonna have to find me one soon. i wanted to do the same thing today too, get out and thrift just outside of town, but my studio lights arrived and i couldn't wait to put them together. maybe next weekend!

Nice scores!!! Can't wait to see the jacket! You can even make a denim button down look fantastic :) Your glasses are really cute. Maybe I'll show everyone mine someday too. That is a big step though :)

This outfit is gorgeously put together!

Thrift store sales are the greatest!! It is insane how cheap things end up being!

this outfit is awesome, thrifting marathon or not. And I actually really dig the glasses - no need to keep them hidden!

I'm also going to go ahead and comment on the last post - that poncho! seriously! that poncho is what anthropologie wishes it was, ya know what I mean?

I think this is an awesome outfit! Burberry at the goodwill!! What you have here is an Ebay item! Or you could maybe take it to a tailors to have it altered (what I would do, I could not part with Burberry, I LOVE Burberry).

ps. are you up for being my obsession of the week (ie. blogger of the week)? If you look on my blog you'll see what I mean!
