Thrifting

Above are things I tried on in the Main Street Thrift Store the other day when I went shopping there, but didn't buy. And of course, I now wish I had bought them, because first off; I'm seriously obsessed with quirky vests and secondly; I like having dresses. I feel like I need to get more. Especially vintage-y ones. Those make me happy:)I finally got a black cozy cardigan! Now I'm out on the look for a slimmer fitting black cardigan. A long one, so I can wear it with dresses. But anyways, I like the cut out pattern on the bottom portion of the sweater. I'm having a brain block and don't know what that's called...
I also found some cool scarves. Amelia inspired me to get some. One is a light, feminine floral. It will be nice to pair with a slim fitting cardigan. And the other scarve has some bold colors in it. I think it will look nice paired with a navy blazer. I could also wear them as headbands too. I haven't quite figured out how to make that work yet though... I have tied the floral one to the purse below though, and I liked the outcome.
I also got a cute little brown leather (maybe?) bag. It has surprise compartments in it and I love it! It fulfills my brown leather bag want for now. Next, I'll be on the look out for a bigger one, to fit all of my stuff I carry in my bag.

Thinks I made alterations on:

These were a last minute grab. I was on my way to the dress section, putting away that dress pictured earlier in the post. Then I saw these shorts. And I was like "No wayyy". I totally had to have them, the print was calling my name. I've seemed to develop a liking for quirky prints lately. I've already cut and sewed them and turned them into a skirt.
This skirt was a tad bit too long for my taste, but something about the pattern attracted me. It was a "your great grandmother's couch" type of pattern. And for some reason, I was liking it. So, all I did was take up the hem.
This vest is continuing the "your great-grandmother's couch" theme. I kind of like those patterns. Well, obviously I do, If I'm buying clothes that have those types of patterns on them. Haha.

Anyways, I'm not very happy with the quality of my pictures lately. I'm going to try to play around with lighting and setting to see if it improves the quality. Hopefully it does. Because this is the only camera I have for now. Eventually though, I hope to save up and get a Canon Rebel or a camera like that one.
