So. In between the two stores we hit, my friend and I got to see the Hunger Games movie - the first movie I'd seen in a theater in about a year (I saw Inception in the theater TWICE). The short of it is that the book was better - but it always is - but the movie was well done. In fact, I wish the movie was its own thing, but it's not, it's based on a book, and a lot of it set up books two and three (movies 2-4, I gather).
The Humane Society is my favorite thrift store in the universe. Of what is pictured below, everything was $1 except three things were 50 cents, according to my receipt. I have no idea what was what - I guess the kid jeans were 50 cents and maybe the two T-shirts? - I just go there and buy what I want and don't worry about prices. There is NOWHERE ELSE on the planet where I can say that! I don't think I've ever spent more than $20 there and at this point 50% of my wardrobe is probably from there...
Here's what I got:
|Old Navy jeans for the kid. Because she can never have enough jeans.|
|Workout capris that are adorable.|
|Cute, casual Old Navy skirt.|
|Two pairs of Old Navy capris. The brown ones in the back were in my "maybe" pile until I said "Well, they're a dollar and I don't have enough shorts yet so I might as well." The blue ones I love.|
|I decided this is the summer of wearing skirts. Throw on a skirt and a black T shirt and I'm good to go. This one is less shiny than it appears, more flowy. And the design is textured. It's cute.|
|Guiness T-shirt (hard to see). Super soft. Probably this was 50 cents.|
|I know it's awful, but it's also so funny. Probably also 50 cents. Haven't tried it on but it looked like it would fit.|
Then we hit the other indie thrift store in the area. No sales today (unlike last time), so everything basically was $3 - except that I bought 6 things and paid $16 plus tax, so something wasn't $3 but I really don't know what.
|My "breaking out of my comfort zone" skirt. It's a bit pinker in person, and it fits really nicely. Ann Taylor Loft even. And my friend Amy happened to have the perfect brown top to go with it. Now I need an excuse to wear it. Like grocery shopping.|
|Terrible picture of two workout tank tops. The orange one is Champion and has a built-in bra - and is very similar to one I bought at Target for a lot more than $3.|
|The cat liked this Old Navy long-sleeved shirt (which may have been the $2 wildcard).|
|I don't know what is up with my awful camera work today, but this is a black - really black! - J Crew skirt. It's a bit faded but I got it to be summer casual so who cares.|
