Mama's Gone Thrifty!
I see nothing wrong with thrift stores... never have. I just never really ventured into one unless I was one the prowl for a tea pot. But... I am IN LOVE with all things THRIFTY! It's my new Forever21 and H&M.
And when becoming a mama has made my priorities change, I have to learn to make do. All our money goes to financing the life of a child. I love it. So I've had to discover new ways to take care of myself at the littlest of cost... so I entered Thrift Stores.
I fell in love with The Salvation Army and Goodwill. We've been able to purchase vintage chairs and vintage props for our photography all by walking into a thrift store, scouting the perfect object , spending the cash and cleaning it up to BRAND NEW! And no one can even tell! So... I got to thinking, all these cute fashion gals are always listing their cute clothes coming from thrift stores, so I might be able to find something myself... and so began my love affair with all things USED!
Take the Blazer. That amazing HOT PINK blazer! $2.00! NOT KIDDING. And I'm in love. Seriously, I love getting what YOU give away ;) Since I can't afford pay full price, might as well wait until you're done with it. Ha! Smart thinking!
And so my closet is getting a revamp, because baby turned a year and I no longer have the "no-make-up-in-sweats-all-day" excuse. It just wont fly for my husband any more...
