Thrifting Throwback

Happy Thursday Blog Buddies!!!! Today is NOT about an outfit post… I wanted to share a few items that I scored purchased from the Thrift Store late December that I didn’t get a chance to share with you all.
I wasn’t overly thrilled about this thrifting trip as I am new thrifter and I will be the 1st to admit that I am an AMATEUR by all means when it comes to thrifting!!!! My daughter has a knack for thrifting and has become a PRO at it and I’m wondering where she gets it from because surely she didn’t get it from her MAMA!

Well, I will allow you all to be the judge and let me know how I did on my 1st time Thrifting without the help of my Thrifting Blog Buddies... the QUEENS of Thrifting  Kerrie of Virtuous Styls and Keren of Two Stylish Kays  

Cobalt Blue Shirt-Blazer $1.94

Plaid Pleated Skirt - $2.48

Blue Dress - $2.00

Plaid Shirt - $1.50

Red Wool Shorts - $1.20 *Seen worn here 

Hot Pink Skirt - $1.39

Yellow Skirt - $1.95

Yours Truly... PRICELESS!!!! LOL!!!!

I spent a TOTAL of $12.46 - So what'cha think???
Note to You: Since this trip I have been back (2) two more times and I seem to get better with time… I still can’t find EXACTLY what I’m looking (A MAJOR SCORE) At any rate, how do you guys think I did on my 1st Thrifting trip?

SN: Today, is the 1st day of LENT Season did you give up Thrifting, Shopping, Caffeine, or ANYTHING???   
As for me I’m giving up Caffeine!!!! (this is gonna be a tough cookie)

Peace, Love, & Fashion
