dear diary, 

ok, ladies and gents, people always ask me which thrift stores i go to, so i thought i would enlighten you all.  the answer is......drum roll please.....ALL THRIFT STORES.  

i really don't have a favorite one or one that i ALWAYS go to or always find good stuff at.  honestly, shopping at thrift stores is very hit or miss.  you could go to the same one on two different days and on one day find tons of amazing gems, and on the other day you will find absolutely nothing.  

i happen to go to the ones that are close to where i live a lot just because they are convenient, but honestly, i am so addicted that wherever i am i search for thrift stores and shop in them whenever i get a chance.  thank you iPhone 4 for letting me find every single thrift store on the face of the planet :) 

{happy thrifting}

p.s. sorry these pictures aren't that great.  i had to take them myself on a tripod because the hubster was at work.  this was very embarrassing and humiliating, might i add, but i do it for you people!

  1. Cute! You look great in blue. Thanks for all your thrifting techniques!
    Question...how long did it take you to grow out your hair? Or do you have extensions? I recently cut mine (for a friend that has cancer) and it used to be boob length. :) The grow out process is a killer....

    1. wow, that is so nice of you to donate your hair like that! i actually have extensions. my real hair is as short as the very front part, like my bangs. i couldn't handle the long time wait of growing my hair out

    2. I'm excited to get extensions once I get to chin length. I fear it's going to take a while. :)
      You have great style, and I need to get out there and start thrifting!
      And I think the idea of you selling stuff is SUPERB!
