outfit du jour: dead flowers

I didn't take very many pictures yesterday because it was a long day. I've been wanting to go shopping for weeks. So, since I had decided that I wanted to do a feature on Thursdays about thrifting, I decided to go shopping. I went to two of my favorite Louisville thrift stores but basically had no luck at all. First at Goodwill I looked through the entire store and all I found was a pair of wooden post earrings for .50. Then I decided to try the Unique Thrift Store, where I always have good luck. Not yesterday. I found two little vintage bags and spent less than $5. They're cute, but I have like a million vintage clutches (okay, maybe like 15? seriously, way too many). And while I love them, when do I ever carry a clutch? Not often enough. They're so hard to use when you're actually *doing* something. They just aren't practical in most situations. So I decided to save thrifting for another day and return a few things to JCPenney's and maybe look around. They always have cute I Heart Ronson and Bisou Bisou things that I can't get enough of. But yesterday? Half the space usually reserved for misses clothing was taken up by puffy orange coats. I didn't find anything at all. Finally, I decided I should go to Charlotte Russe; I can never leave Charlotte Russe emptyhanded. But yesterday...I did. It was a sad day. So, needless to stay, I'm still feeling the need to shop.

  1. bummer you didn't find much! but that just means you're going to hit the thrifty jackpot soon ;) i'm with you on the clutches too, i always see tons of them at the store, and they are cute to look at, but in practice they suck! maybe you can find a crafty way to attach a strap to them?

  2. Cute outfit!! I never really have any luck thrifting. I'm so impatient!!

  3. i LOVE that brown ring! it looks like outer space!

  4. Sometimes it happen to me too when I want to go shopping so much!! I usually didnt find anything that I like but if I wasnt looking I will come home with 2 or 3 bags!! I love thrift shopping and getting some bargain, I think 90% of my clothing is either thrifted or on sale...
    it's just more satisfying on looking rather than buying full price clothes
