So today since the weather was really nasty I wanted to take it easy and do a little light thrifting. I hit my usual spots (DAV, Goodwill, Family Thrift) and didn't spend much time looking through the racks since i had both my children with me. Thrift shopping gets really tricky when you have a diva-licious five year old and a two year old having a meltdown in the cart. -_- Soooo, I'm almost certain someone is walking out with my totally awesome find today, but I digress, I did find this amazing vintage full sequin jacket! WOOOT WOOOOT!!!!!! I can't wait to wear it out for drinks with the ladies!
I ran across this bag in Family Thrift, I know a year of two ago they were really popular in the deep south, but guess who's gonna attempt to bring 'em back in style??? This girl.
After Lydia saw my sequin jacket she found a sequin vest and HAD to have it.... :)
All in all i spent about $16.00 total for everything. I win again.

Today was so gloomy! It was rather chilly outside this morning, maybe the low 70s, perfect excuse to rock a sweater in the summer! This neon sweater came from Forever 21x the hot punk braided faux leather belt comes from H&M, and the blue slacks were gifted to me from a friend, but you can find the in New York and Co. Now I'm all ready to go thrifting!

I'm a thrift store enthusiast! I mean, I the one who's up at five a.m. With a sausage biscuit and coffee ridding around searching for the creme' de la creme' of thrift shops!!! check out a few things I picked up last month! Remember, thrift stores are hit and miss, you win some and you lose some! I found these things at goodwill, family thrift in Hampton, Va., The DAV, and thrift city. This particular weekend, I was #winning.

I've always wondered where thrifting originated....like did someone throw their summer wardrobe away only to find pickers outside digging through their things....or were they more business savvy, did they decide to host the first ever yard sale? I stumbled upon this amazing website during my "research" and I think it's a pretty interesting read. Check it outtttt! history of thrifting

Thrift shopping for my children has to be the smartest and easiest thing I've ever done! Just head to your nearest goodwill or favorite thrift shop and browse through the children's section. I only look for name brands and gently used clothing items. Since my children are very rambunctious thrift shopping has saved us thousands of dollars in clothing funds to be used elsewhere like vacations! REady, set, THRIFT!

Hello! Welcome to my new blog! You may be asking yourself what could possibly be so trendy about "second hand" clothing??? They smell funny, they've been worn by other people and for those germaphobes out there I'm sure you can't even imagine stepping foot inside a thrift shop or vintage boutique. But, right now thrifting is making a major comeback and I for one am definitely #teamthrift. The thrill of the hunt, the stories the clothing tell, and the overall look can set you apart in the fashion universe and expand your fashion forward mind by leaps and bounds. Follow me as I journey through yard sales, thrift shops, vintage boutiques, and estate sales in search for the trendiest, thrifty-est finds....It'll be worth the hunt!
