Thrifting Adventures

I asked my friend Kendra to grab a coffee Friday after school, and we ended up at a near-by Value Village. Turns out that not only does she love thrifting as much as I do, but we're the same size! How cool is that? Our styles aren't super similar, but this is very glee-worthy nonetheless.

I've actually hit up the thift store a couple times this week, and really want to share some of my finds.


I absolutely love dresses and skirts with pockets. Love, I tell you!

Dress is thrifted. Marked as a size 1X and 100% cotton.
Cardigan is a size 3X from Walmart.

Next up is this brown pasiley skirt. Because of the smocked waist, I can wear it high on the waist or low on the hips. I love smocking!

smocked waist!

Today is also a really good hair day for me. I don't know if it looks quite different but it feels great.



  1. I think u are adorable and you are having a rockin' hair day. Great finds by the way! I may have to try this thrifting thing.

  2. @misss_e, thank you! i'd reccomend checking out a thrift store or two. you don't always come out with great find but it's worth it. :)

  3. I never get anything that fabulous when I go thrifting. What gives? D:
    You look lovely.

  4. Thanks Liz! It's definately more luck than anything else. Luck and persistance.

  5. Do you color your hair? I want that exact shade!
