Thrifting

I've had very much good luck at the goodwill lately.

I found a pair of naturalizer boots that were 12.99. I googled them and they are 169.00 new! They are so comfy and wonderfully fall-ish.

I have taken to buying old, long, flowery 1980's skirts and cutting them off at a more appropriate 2010 length. They look great with the boots.

I found a pair of tap shoes today for 6.99. Now I can really learn to tap!

I have very many fine gauge cardigans that go well with skirts and boots.

My husband found a very nice suit jacket for 2.95. It was for a costume for the theater, but, hey, he bought it, so he gets to keep it. It looks great on him.

$4.95 got me a pair of blue coveralls. I plan to be Rosie the Riveter for Halloween, and then use them for every home improvement job I have.

I can barely bring myself to purchase new from the store anymore. Although, target had skirts on sale for $4.98 and that is as good as goodwill, so I snatched those right up.

Maybe I'll have to start up on of those "what I wore today" blogs.

Next on my hunt: A pair of authentic mocassins!

Got Marissa some seriously nice jeans at the Bargain Kloset today. Love scoring at the thrift store!

Lucky you! I have terrible luck. Of course, I hardly ever go in, so that probably has something to do with it.

I have this *ick* thing about wearing other people's clothes. Maybe because I was an Oldest child and never had hand-me-downs.

I shop the very last clearance racks and found
some great stuff for 80%off.

YES! I can picture you as Rosie! Please post a pic on facebook at Halloween!
