Thrift Store Treasures

I haven’t done a thrift store treasure post in forever! It really does seems like forever but it’s been more like 4 months….who’s counting though right?

Okay maybe I’m counting but I’ve MISSED it sooooo much!

Work has been crazy and throw a wedding in the mix and I really didn’t have time OR the space for anymore thrifty treasures. Okay maybe it’s more about the space. I can ALWAYS make time for thrifting.

I was going through withdrawals!
When I start dreaming about thrift stores I know it’s been far too long. Yes I often dream about thrifitng…..don’t hate!

I thought I would just pop in, take a look around and leave empty handed. You know, just get a quick fix. I was sure I was capable of hitting up GW and leaving empty handed…….no problem!

Well as you can see from the pictures below I failed!

 The yellow scarf on the left is hand knitted and the white beauty on the right is a brand spanking new Fossil scarf! LOVE them!

Love this top! It’s very vintage stewardess, don’t cha think? I thought it would look cute with my favorite black headband (shown in the pic above), big peal studs, black Bermuda shorts, and my black Target sandals

 

IMG_4953-edit4blog I had to make sure I bought something for Kent……you know to kind of sweeten the whole deal.

He actually doesn’t mind when I shop at GW but we’re going though this whole declutter and organize EVERYTHING faze right now and I wasn’t too sure that he would be thrilled that I was buying more stuff.

My planned worked! The second I told him I bought him a couple shirts he brightened right up! ;o)

My total this trip: $20.00!
