Thrifted Thursday… OOTD!

Can y’all believe that I haven’t been thrifting at all this year… yup, NOT AT ALL!!!! Now that I think about it I actually haven’t been shopping NONE this year. Wow… that’s effin’ awesome. Somebody check my temperature quick! Lol
The most I have purchased this year is nail polish. Hmmm… I know someone is reading this post and saying: Well the year just started… And, you are absolutely RIGHT! But for a person that use to thrift weekly and to be able to go 24 days w/o thrifting is MAJOR!!!!! Especially, since it was not a New Year Resolution nor was it planned. Nevertheless, since I haven’t been shopping I decided to shop my closet today & wear something that I thrifted a few months ago.


Southern Girls love PEARLS! J


Ooooo… Did I mention it is a messy bun type of day!


Too often folks get discourage from friends, family, and/or even social media

Don’t allow folks to rain on your parade


It’s NOT always good to keep your feelings balled up in a bottle. Sometimes we cause more damage for the things we don’t say then the things we do say.


Be mindful to watch your BACK but trust & believe that GOD has your BACK!

Continue to be the BEST you that you can be & let your light shine bright!!!!

Your path was destined & no one can walk in your shoes but you!


My total outfit cost me a whopping $2.68 from America's Thrift Store 
Boots: Gifted
Accessories: LA Lynn's excluding the Michael Kors watch


*** Special thanks to my daughter for being such a sweetheart & snap Mommy pictures on the way to school this morning - LOVE her dearly! *** 

   

NOTE TO YOU: What have you thrifted lately? Or have you been shopping? What’s new with you?  

~Until Next Time

Peace, Love, & Fashion

  4. The only shopping I've done this year was for for groceries last week. I'm planning on doing a little thrifting tomorrow though. I want to find a really cool vintage velvet blazer and some statement necklaces. Love the outfit, especially the boots!

  6. You look really pretty Ms. Lynn, loving the messy bun!!!


    I haven't thrifted since last year and my last trip was not successful at all so I haven't had the urge to really go back. I need to go because there are some items I want add to my wardrobe that I think I can find thrifting so I won't have to pay full price for.

  18. Love this!!!! So classic and the print on your skirt is stellar! I have gone thristing only once this year, well it's the only time I've shopped for anything for the wardrobe. But I did run across the remnants of a garage sale that had eveything put out to the road as free, so I shopped that and majorly scored!!!

  24. I haven't been thrifting either. I went a few times and didn't find anything, so I decided to wait until everyone decided to clean out their closet and donate. Went a few days ago and found some great things. The addiction is back on.

    Love that skirt..awesome find.

  25. I need to go thrifting, with y'all but this time before the store closes. ;) Super cute, as always. Can't wait to turn my camera on you!

  26. Even though there are so many types of leather bags you can choose, I believe most of us will choose leather tote bags finally because totes at http://leather-tote-bags.webs.com own really nice design and best quality if you comparing it with the others.
