we are starting a new feature on the bloggy today. frugal feathers! it is no secret that megan and i go thrifting a lot. we love a bargain and we often find some pretty sweet deals! so much so that it is actually difficult for us to shop at regular stores and pay full price for an item when we know we can find something similar (or better!) at a thrift store, a garage sale or a rummage sale for way less! so these posts will be all about our awesome thrifty finds. clothes, shoes, jewelry, housewares...nothing is off limits. this is going to be fun. we hope you enjoy!!!
just a side note ~ it is rainy today so i brought my little vintage umbrella out with me to take my photos just in case it started raining again and i needed to cover the camera (although i don't know how much good this umbrella would do. but it is the first one i saw as i was walking out the door). and, as usual, i was being a huge dork and started using it as a prop. at one point during my mini photo shoot, i saw a minivan drive by my house super slowly. clearly they were wondering who the crazy umbrella lady taking her own photos was...awesome. and here she is...
dress ~ elle (i believe that brand is originally sold at kohls), savers thrift store, $6.50 (purchased on senior day with my mom. she gets 40% off!)
shoes~ marc fisher, thrifted for me by megan at goodwill, $3.50
belt~ vintage, savers, $1.60
bracelets~ H&M (not thrifted!) and handmade
umbrella~ vintage, garage sale, $1.00
i hope you are having a happy hump day. we were supposed to go to megan's for dinner but her poor baby girl has strep throat. send happy thoughts and well wishes her way. poor kiddo.
