Shirt-F21 Undershirt-F21 Skirt-Thrifted Belt-Thrifted Tights-Apt.9 Shoes-Borrowed from mom
THIS SKIRT IS AWESOMEEE!
It's beautiful and flows perfectly, and obviously is fun to twirl in. :)
I had a supershoppingadventure (yes, that's one word) yesterday. Started at the mall then went to a local thrift store and ended at The Family Store (which for some reason I call the Salvation Army every now and then)
So, I went to the mall the day after Christmas. I know, I know, what was I thinking!?
It was crazyyyy. Way too many people there to be able to focus on shopping. Plus, the mall is so expensive compared to thrift stores. I bought a top with as much money that I could buy 7 things with at a thrift store. Maybe more. The only thing I bought the day after Christmas was that Hamsa hand necklace I'm wearing (I love it soooooooo much, worn it practically every day since it's purchase), tights, and socks.
Okay, so, summary of my supershoppingadventure:
I got some tie-dye black jeans (FINALLY!), a flowy shirt, the striped shirt I'm wearing in this post, a black undershirt, a beautiful scarf, and a black cardigan.
I looked sooo hard for some boots. Some knee high (or ankle), flat boots. I know that everyone has boots now, but I just love the way they look with certain outfits. I started looking in a department store, and the cheapest they had the kind I wante dwas $80. Soeey, but I wouldn't have been very thrilled to drop that much mone on boots. So, I found a pair of knee highs, $30. A really good price, if I do say so myself. They didn't have them in my size. D: So, I saw a pair of ankle boots, $25 dollars. It even had a nifty buckle on them. Once again, they had none in my size. D:< style="font-size:130%;">
Main Street Thrift Shop:
I got a high waist black skirt, a sweater, hanes white t-shirt and a pink high waste skirt (the pleats and color are perfectionn :D)
I didn't get a vest this time thrifting! I usually do. Well, actually, I was going to get a black vest that looked a little like a tuxedo vest, but these hipster teenagers came in, and one of the girls had snatched it up when I went back to pick it up. Oh well, there will be more black vests.
I got 2 black high waist skirts (one of them being the one I wore in this post), 2 sweaters, and this white embroidered shirt I turned into a vest by cutting off the shoulders.
I can never seem to find shirts I like at thrift stores. I don't know why..... My perfect thrift store shirt is that interesting printed collared shirt or sleeveless shirt, or that lacy shirt, or the vintage striped shirt. Haven't come across it yet though. Well, I did come across that cool embroidered shirt, But I turned it into a vest? Does that count as a shirt still? Well, I think it does. Then I've made success!
So, there have been no posts lately because I lost the charger to my camera. Well, I still haven't foud it, but a lightbulb went off in my head and it made me realize, "I can just use my sister's camera!" Duhhh Danielle.
Anyways, My Christmas wasgood. I got makeup and money from my momma and ,oney from my relatives. So, I was happy.
Also, mostly everytime I go thrifting, I come across a pair of these shoesMy mom told me that they're huarache shoes and they were big in the 80's and I want a pair soooooo bad. I found a pair yesterday, but they were too small. :( Curse my big feet! I havve such a hard time finding shoes when I thrift.
Well, I hope everyone enjoyed their holidays and I hope everyone has a happy new years!
Skirt(worn as dress), Belt, Necklace-Thrifted Cardigan-F21 Shoes-Minnetionka Moccasins
Got this skirt thrifting on Friday. I also got two dresses, a vest, a romper and a cardigan. I will be wearing the soon, so pictures should be up.
I also got a spiderman lunchbox for a white elephant thing I'm going to. I'm gonna put some food in it and a note that says "Have a good day at school, love mom." Andddddd, it's gonna be pretty awesome. My sister got a kid motorcycle/bike thing, which is gonna be sooo funny when someone opens it. Well, I'm off to go..... do nothing now. Oh, the joys of Christmas break :)
Where have I been?! I have not been very inspired, broke, and stressed out lately. That resulted in my dressing for comfort and not doing posts. Then my boyfriend, well, ex-boyfriend, and I broke up again.
Yeah, I've been kinda "ehhh" lately.
I did go to districts yesterday though, which was fun. I did an ensemble piece called The Audition by Matt Thompson. My group got an excellent on it.
I've also been flooded with holiday performances with my singing and dancing group.
I'm just overall tired.
But I missed blogging, so I decided to squeeze this post in.
I was in a play "The Tempest" I wasn't feeling all that inspired Whenever i did wear something interesting, I didn't take pictures.
Those are my reasons for not posting anything for 13 days. WOAH! That's kind of a long time.shirt-F21 Cardigan-F21 Belt-Thrifted Skirt-Thrifted Tights-? Flats-?
Well, now I'm on Thanksgiving break, so I won't have any AP stuff to do.
And the last Tempest show was last night. We also got screened for states last night, so hopefully we'll get into that. I was a spirit in the play, for those of you who didn't know. Unfortunately, I didn't take any pictures. But other people took some, but I'm not in a lot of the pictures, because.... Well, I don't know why. My outfit was all black. Shoes, shirt, jeans, mask, socks and gloves. It was a fun experience, and I'm super glad I got to do it.
On another note, I'm dead broke right now. Not very fun when you're wanting to go out thrifting all the time. I guess I'll just have to shop my closet.....
Juno!Left to right: Your Mom, Waldo, Queen of Hearts, nerd (me) and.... I don't know what the last girl dressed up as. Haha.Sasquatch and a scotsman.Gumby and a bunny Wednesday was costume day. I dressed up like a nerd.

Oh, I miss my long hair:( I got it cut yesterday and it's up to my shoulders. :(
There was also a decades day, and once I find my camera, I'll get the pictures up from that.
Shirt-F21 Blazer-Thrifted Jeans-F21 Shoes-(not pictured) Keds What I did at the beginning of the school year is: I made a goal to not rewear any of my shirts until I've worn each of my shirts at least once. I've almost worn almost all of my shirts, and now, and I'm excited to get back into my shirts and style them differently.
Well, nothing that exciting going on, sooo, I'm going to go get ready to go to a musical thing going on tonight at my school.:)

Here's the dress I hemmed. I actually wore this to school today! I was so proud of myself, I would usually be like, "this looks too ridiculous". But I really wanted to wear this dress, because it's pretty. So I did what I wanted to. I think I'll start doing that more often now!
