Ok. Let's get down to business.
First a review.
I'm not buying any new clothing in 2011, read about that here.
I was planning a big goodwill trip for last weekend & did this post to do some planning.
Some things I wanted:
denim jumper/babydoll dress
button down shirt
cut off shorts
big girl lady pants
slim fit boyfriend jeans
Well I'll tell you what. I was walking around that Goodwill saying "HALLELUJAH!" with my sister laughing at me. I found many of those silly, exact items. Almost exactly.
Here's some of what I found:
|feminine top #1|
|feminine top #2|
|lady pants. these look a LOT better in person.|
|running skirt? at Goodwill? Can you say thank you LORD?|
|my plan for the button-down, with some new loafers & belt.|
|cute Elias, helping me style an outfit.|
|close up of the shoes.|
|made some jeans into cutey shorts.|
|denim babydoll button-down jumper dress|
- slim fit boyfriend jeans
- cropped sweatpants, sort of like this
- wrappy, ballet style top
In full disclosure, what I spent:
$50 of leftover Christmas money plus a generous donation from the Goodwill-fairy on thirteen items. That's $3.84/per item on average.
Woosh. Is anyone else exhausted?
a) Thrift shopping is neat. And cheap.
b) A plan sure doesn't hurt.
c) I will hire myself out for personal-thrift-shopping-fit-sessions for the fee of
vintage loafers and or denim jumpers. Or coffee.
Shoot, I'll do it for free ya'll.
