labor day weekend finds

 top: thrifted, shorts: free, shoes: rite-aid, hat: free, watch: thrifted, necklace: thrifted

dear diary, 

oh how this past weekend was filled with much thrifting and lots of GREAT finds!  saturday my mom and i hit up some thrift stores when we came back from san diego and we also spend a good part of labor day thrifting as well.  here is what i found:

{1} 2 super adorable mustard yellow pillows (originally $25 at target) for $5 each 

{2} a round, blue pillow (originally $25 at target) for $10 

{3} the awesome shirt in the pictures above for $5

{4} a green link necklace (originally $10 at target) for $1.50

{5} some cobalt blue shoes (originally $25 at target) that i have been wanting for a while for $4
{6} an awesome retro dessert holder (that i am using as a jewelry holder) for $5.  

aren't these deals awesome?  i was so happy :)  there is actually a funny story about the pillows.  i found ONE yellow pillow saturday night with my mom at goodwill.  they only had one and i was kind of bummed because i really would have liked to have 2, but i loved it, so i had to get it.  then, we went to a different goodwill on monday and i found another one!  it was meant to be.  we also headed over to a different goodwill while out on monday and i found another blue, round pillow that i had previously bought a few weeks ago from goodwill!  you guys, i seriously think i have magic powers sometimes when it comes to thrift store shopping.  i mean how does one get so lucky?  thank you goodwill (and my magic thrifting powers) !

{happy thrifting!}
