I am actually working on creating a Big Grown Up Type Blog with actual open-hearted posts and a design that isn't just a basic template and all that jazz.
But in the meantime, at least I have a place to keep a catalog of the things I buy at thrift stores, yes? Yes.
I hadn't been in a while - not since the last blog post - and I am trying really hard to only buy useful pieces that I will really wear. Thus I did NOT buy the beautiful cocktail dress. It was so satiny and lovely, with a little puff at the bottom. It was strapless. It....did not zip up in the back. "Why do you even need this?" asked Amy. "To wear to school pickup," I replied.
Here's the handful of things I did buy:
|Favorite find, right up front, won't make you wait. I love a good furry collar. This is warm, soft, squishy, and will be great when it's fall in Georgia in....December. I think it was $2.50?|
|Just look at that fuzz!|
|Plain black T-shirt with foofy bit on the front, impossible to photograph. Will look great under a blazer. $2?|
|Plain and basic pink T-shirt. $2?|
|LOVE this skirt. LOVE IT. It's got a touch of wool in it but LOOKS like wool (yet washable). It's very school girl cuteness. Very me in the 90s, actually. Will look great with my boots and tights. $2?|
|Shorts for the kid for either now or next summer, depending on what fits. Gap! $1.25.|
|Cherokee jeans that also may fit her now or later, not sure, haven't tried yet. $1.25.|
|Suuuuuupppperrrrr cute elephant shirt for her to wear with leggings. She says she likes it, win! $1.25.|
