After savoring a delicious lunch of hummus today, my boyfriend called me wanting to hang out and grab a little snack and tea at the local Books a Million. Of course, I had to worm a little detour out of him on the way there! We stopped by my favorite thrift store, The Clothes Less Traveled. After rummaging around for a while, I was let down and disappointed that nothing exactly caught my eye. If I saw one more bent out of shape Abercrombie polo I was going to lose it! About to give up and leave, I started towards the door only to find an adorable, strapless, irrevocably girly Ralph Lauren dress calling my name. Upon trying it on- success! It fit like a glove, only better. The best part about this purchase though? It cost a mere $4. Well, $4.24 counting tax, but still, I've got new Ralph Lauren hanging in my closet for less than the price of a Hanes t-shirt. Photos of me wearing my pride and joy new purchase are above. I paired the soft pink, girly dress with a fitted denim vest and vintage cameo necklace for a laid back, folk-ish feel. Sorry about the quality of the shots, I don't have Photoshop on my new laptop yet; I'm in desperate need of it!
I have no shame about my unrequited love of thrifting. It's my most favorite hobby.
Ever found something so outrageously amazing at a thrift store that you've been dying to tell the world about it? Tell me about it here, in a comment!
