thrifting with me!

Last Friday my mom and I stopped at one of our favorite Goodwills on College Drive in Baton Rouge! Here are some of my finds:

Here is headless me and what I wore. Note: I rarely dress like this but this was the day after I spend the night at the hospital with Larry. I still think it's cute outfit though.
Arizona button up: Goodwill $3.49
Limited Jeans: Goodwill $4.99
Sista's Vans: Borrowed
Total Outfit Cost: $8.48

Lookie here, I found a Shabby Apple dress! Too bad it was an extra small and that long center of the dress with the pleated bottom was just unflattering.

Umm JUICY COUTURE Jeans. Too bad they were a tab too tight in my butt and thighs. #foreverbigbuttprobz. They also weren't long enough to be wore with wedges for the spring.

And the top is Lauren Conrad and I got it!

This blazer was pretty but I couldn't think of any bottoms I have that would go with it.
Target dress. Didn't get it and kinda regretting it!

Jessica Mcclintock dress, came with a blazer too all for $12.99. I was thinking the dress would be pretty to change into at the end of my wedding reception, but it just needed too much work. It had a few stains, the metal from the corset was poking me, it would need to be hemmed, and my mom said it made my boobs look (even) smaller. Sigh.

Loveee this blazer. I did indeed get it.
(please excuse my hair)

I also got some black skinny pants from Forever 21 but I forgot to get a picture.

What do you think of my finds?

  4. Love that Target dress. :) And the white dress looks stunning on you!

  5. Girl, I NEED to go thrift store shopping now!! I think that Jessica Mcclintock dress looks AMAZING on you, and I dont think your boobs look small all!! GO BACK AND GET IT! :]

  6. Ugh, I was just at the Salvation Army yesterday and did not get ANYWHERE NEAR THIS LUCKY! I have so much more luck at consignment shops, but then of course, you're going to pay $15 for a skirt as opposed to $5, ya know? That JM dress is stunning on you. I am small chested too, but the sweetheart neckline really makes that whole area look nicer, trust me! My wedding dress had a sweetheart neckline, and I loved it!

  7. Just found your blog!!! And love it!!! I need help thrifting. I SUCK. I am scared. Where should I start? and How?

    Drop by if you get a chance. I need help!!!!


  8. nice thrifting! part of me would want to go back and get that target dress and take out the pull string belt and add a thick belt with some color!

  9. Wow, I am obsessed with that dress! You found some great deals. I normally stop by a thrift store once a week, but haven't been in over a month! This post is making me realize I need to go NOW!

  10. Very cute outfit!!! I like your finds!! That target dress is super cute!!!


  11. Not that I like to make comments on boobs, but you actually looked AMAZING in that white dress. I thought your chest actually looked bigger, at least in the photo. It also looks like I am not the only one!

  12. Love the white dress. How sad that it didn't work out. Also did you try on the shabby apple dress? Because i know their sizes run way weird. I'm usually a medium but have to order a small from them.

  13. Both blazers are super cute, too bad you couldn't think of anything to wear the first one with. =/ I'm with you on the big butt problems, jean shopping just sucks so much sometimes.

  14. lady, i think you are a girl after my own heart--about 99.9% of my wardrobe comes from the goodwill. i am so excited i found your blog, as soon as i saw the name of your blog i knew i was going to love it. ;) i love that printed blazer, too bad you didn't get it! i bet it would have looked cute with any solid colored bottom!

  15. I love the goodwill on College! They always have something interesting, I haven't been there in a while though. LOVE that Lauren Conrad top!
