sooooo... drinking coffee ♥♥♥ right now...

i had a super productive trip to the salvation army yesterday... a pair of mens levis, a ck jean jacket, 6 shirts (to cut up) and a sweater (to shred). i am a very happy grrrl. everytime i have a good haul at goodwill or salvation i always wonder why i shop anywhere else... haha... but the thing is i don't really. well, there is etsy when i am looking for something in particular(usually vintage) and ebay for newer used items. i'm kinda always inspired by 90s simplicity(think mens levis, the perfect tees, worn in henleys & boots of course), so thrifting is perfect. i just gotta keep a mental list of things i want/need and keep focused or i'll end up with a mountain of stuff that gets worn once... anyhow...

i love that guy (in the last photo)... he keeps my neighbors trash bins safe and makes me smile

my dad made my mom this purse.... i know, sweet right?

♥♥♥

denim top-goodwill diyed by ME, vintage dress-the vintage sideshow (love this shop... she is always having sales), hat-world hats mart, litas-nastygal, vintage scarf & sunnies, tooled purse handmade by my daddy

I love this outfit. I've been having insane luck lately with the Goodwills here AZ... thrifting is super thrilling and there's nothing better than finding the perfect thing that you never knew you really needed. That being said, I've made some extremely regrettable purchases as well. Your hair is looking fantastic1

you look so sweet!

I pretty much shop solely at second hand stores. . . shopping in regular retail stores just isn't as fun!! Not nearly as cheap either. There is something about the thrill of finding something cool,original and super cheap at a second hand store. Nothing beats it. I love the scarf tied around your wrist. I think i'm gonna have to try that look today. xx

I applaud your ability to find awesome stuff in Goodwill & Salv Army! It's all definitely there, but sometimes I get lost in the digging process. But every time that I go, I leave very happy too!

Good luck with the DIY sweater, and you look adorable in this post! Love the shoes especially!

Much love,

Very cool look, the scarf around the arm is fun, I think I'll snag that idea! :-)

i love the simplicity of this outfit. i found myself looking at my closet last night and wanting to take anything too trendy to crossroads. also..... i got a kick ass pair of vintage black ysl pleated trousers yesterday. i'm freaking! so i'm hoping i get to see you after "carmageddon". it's been way too long.

oh and the fact that your dad made that purse for your mom almost made me cry... well that and pms. (:

you are beautiful.
