Thrift Store Finds

Due to the crappy weather, I haven’t really had a chance to take some new outfit pictures, so I’m going to be posting a few old outfits over the next few days.  These are a couple of outfits I wore incorporating purchases from my most recent trip to the thrift store.

skirt, sweater- thrifted from Savers, belt- Forever 21, boots- Urban Original

This skirt hit me at a really awkward length for some reason, so I just hiked it and pinned it in the back so that I could wear it higher up on my waist.  Also, this sweater is so cozy and was less than $4!  Savers has definitely been my favorite place to stock up on sweaters this winter.

cardigan- thrifted from Savers, tee and pants- forever 21, flats- Target

Recognize those pants from yesterday?  Well I love the combination of this dark brown and the burgundy pants.  A few years ago, I never would have worn colored pants and now these have become one of my favorite pair of pants!  My next colored pants purchase will either be a green or a dark purple!  Since I’ve been home, I haven’t yet had a chance to go thrifting, but I’ll probably check out the local Goodwill and Salvo sometime after Christmas.

I’m going to see Black Swan tonight- I’m so excited!  It has been so long since I saw a movie in theaters and I’ve heard such good things about this one.  Also, one of the theaters in town has started doing this deal called ‘Value Tuesdays’ where movies are $5 all day on Tuesdays!  I definitely wanted to take advantage of the discount since movies have become so expensive these days!  What movies have you guys watched recently?

Rainy Holiday

The constant rain and severe flooding in my hometown have been dampening my Christmas spirit.  On the bright side, most of my friends are back in town so I’ve been able to hang out with them.  Here’s what I wore for a meet-up with one of my good friends:

cardigan, black lace cami (undernath), pants- forever 21, lace tee-
charlotte russe, necklace- RenneLoughlin on etsy, boots- GoJane

I’ve finally finished all my Christmas shopping (yay!) and now I just have to get all the gifts and cards together and wrap them nicely.  Also, I’ve vowed to stay away from the mall because I don’t want to deal with the crowds and I’ve already spent way too much money!  What stage are you guys at with your holiday preparations?

Last Chance!

Today is the last day to enter the giveaway here and win this headband!
