Thrifted Thursday & GNO Recap

Hiya lovelies... by the time you READ this post it will probably be wayyy pass Thursday but I had this post ready to go but, well ummm... I didn't... Oh well, let me just tell ya a few weeks last month I had the absolute pleasure of attending a GNO event that was for a great cause! 

The event was held at Shimmer Boutique & hosted by the lovely Sorjourner of Married with 2 Boys & Dea of Pretty Girls Rock Dresses

 Attendees were asked to bring new and gently used clothing to support the YWCA of Greater Atlanta Women in Transition (WIT) Program. 

There were plenty  of  donations... this is just a few of  my donated bags along with others.

There were raffles, a make-up artist for FREE make-up services and a hair stylist to touch up your hair do.

Lastly, all in attendance were given a FREE McDonald's Chiller coupon which I couldn't wait to take advantage of!!!! #Winning

Shimmer Boutique is located in the Campcreek Marketplace in East Point, GA

A closer look at what I wore! 

 I was REALLY thrilled that I grabbed this dress from the Thrift Store for only $2.50 ~ I was going to get it alternated so that it would be shorter but never got around to doing that. 

Yup, my earrings were thrifted too... they were only $1.00

What I Wore
My entire outfit excluding the shoes was thrifted:
Dress: $2.50
Earrings: $1.00
Makeup Bag/Purse-Clutch: .50 cent
A GRAND TOTAL of $4.00

The shoes are Candies via Kohl's
Note to You: Ok, sooo y'all know I was NOT a thrifter until I started blogging right... I think I did pretty darn good! Does this make me a certified thrifter? lol 

~ Until next time

Peace, Love, & Fashion
