Adventures in Thrifting.

If you follow me on Twitter, you'll know I ventured out of the house on Saturday for some thrift shopping. I may have also used the word "failure" in that tweet. However, my little city proved me wrong & I had a great shopping weekend. I didn't find anything vintage [as my heart so desired], but I made it away with some practically new items for practically no money. BEFOREHAND, I'd like to apologize for the crappy pictures. I, very last minute, snapped these. I didn't realize until literally right now how poorly they'd turned out. Woopsies. 

1. A great Alfani  skirt. I don't think it was intentionally supposed to be high-waisted, but it was a petite size and you know... I'm... not technically "petite" SO this sits nicely above my waist and is SUPER detailed. I am doing this thing where I dress less like a boy, so... this should help. Once it warms up [and dries out] a bit, I'll snap some pictures of me wearing it and it not hanging on a wall that is the same color as the main fabric. You know, so you can see what it really looks like.

$8.00

2. This black dress by Target. It fits absurdly well, and the options are endless for this- necklaces, belts, I mean if you see it 100 times on this blog in the coming weeks, pretend it is new each time, mmk? I see a future of dressing it up for events or slipping on ballet flats for a casual Saturday afternoon. It is really lady-like, again helping with the whole 'dressing like a boy' business. ALSO, I really have no choice BUT to do an outfit post with this, because the way it is hanging lifeless in the photo does NOT do it an ounce of justice.

$11.00

I have a weekend in San Francisco coming up soon... perhaps I'll get to scour a few thrift stores there. Something tells me I could find something a little more glamorous & just a little older than last season. ;-)
