Hey guys! We hope everyone had a great Father's Day! We both did despite the fact that AC was suffering from a mysterious illness. She was sick for a good 4 days! We were trying to guess what could have caused it. We thought maybe tomatoes? Too much partying? And then we came to the conclusion that it had to be shopping withdrawals!! She was feeling sick until we thoroughly thrifted through Savers. We had two shopping carts full of treasures! It was hard to narrow it down but we finally came to a decision. The moral of our story is.. shopping cures all. Hehe we're just joking.. or are we? :)
This dress is actually AC's but the bag is a vintage Chanel that I found at a Goodwill Store. Probably not real but, hey! Until I can afford an authentic one I am so very satisfied!
I love Savers!! I think it's the greatest thrift store! I know it's definitely the cleanest and it's the biggest thrift store around our neighborhood. And it is also where I found this dress. This "dress" is actually a long skirt worn as a dress. The print is what actually caught my interest. I love the colors with the black and white thin stripes. I paired it with a belt I found at Goodwill The buckle is just gorgeous, I think.
I also got these shoes. I've been wanting a pair just like 'em. So score!! :)
This romper is from U.O. It was on sale for about $28. I like that its wide legged. The fabric is so light and perfect for the hot summer. Keeps me nice and cool!
Forever 21 fringe bag. I wish the straps were longer though. I'll have to do something about it!
Today was also my first day of summer school. (gay i know huh) So to make myself feel better, I decided to do a little early morning project by cutting up this HUGE t-shirt from AA into this little grecian style dress. It's still a little rough around the edges. A work in progress I guess you could say. I wore it with a slip underneath and a brown belt thrifted from Goodwill. And also my purse of the moment from Topshop. (another one of my london buys)
These are the sandals I wore with them that my mom bought me from previous trips to Spain. 10 points to whoever can guess what is odd about this picture. (besides my toes guys! dont look at those!!!!! ) (i'm toe conscious. hahahha)
Here are a few more things that I got today from Savers (my favvv place to thrift). This black vest and the black shoes were only 99 cents EACH! Such a steal!!! As for the top, I'm just wearing that "grecian dress" as a shirt with my UO shorts and thrifted belt.
My last few purchases here are a batwing cardigan, this awesome purple skirt and beige ostrich skin belt. It is kind of difficult to show you guys the batwing. I'm thinking of altering the beginning of the sleeve tighter to exaggerate the batwing a little more. What do you guys think? And also this purple skirt is one of my favorite finds out of all of them. I just love the color and the material. It reminds me of grape candy. :) The belt is also really pretty but I didn't get to take a closer picture of it. Next time!
That was our monday thrifting! We're thinking about making it a weekly ritual seeing as how Saver's has a 99 cent sale every monday. If you guys are planning on going, Mondays are the days to go!
Until next time,
edit: okay so the thing about the silver sandals is that.. i lost one of the straps so i had to use a different gold one. haha but seeing as no one noticed i guess its okay! :)
