on the hunt

I think the best part of thrifting is doing it spontaneously.  Everyone knows that thrifting can be a hit or miss but I definitely have been lucky with getting my hands on some awesome treasures.

The Blazer
I was lucky to find this Badgley Mischka Blazer at the Goodwill {last seen here} after having a pamper session with one of my best friends.  This blazer is indeed one of them although the fit is a little tight {since I've packed on some pounds} and I STILL haven't replaced the buttons... but who needs to button their blazer? 


The Dress
This dress is ALSO a thrift find - one of the more expensive ones - $19.99 to be exact - but it was one of those LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT kinda instances where my heart wouldn't let me put it back.  Thankfully I didn't - sheer and black - I definitely couldn't go wrong with this.  
I last wore it here

  7. I have also spent a ridiculous amount on an item or two in the thrift store i won't reveal the prices because you'll probably think I'm crazy, but I love your style and that dress and those shoes are fantastic! And yet again your hair is fabulous!
