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.


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.


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. ;-)
