Since I won’t be able to do an outfit picture today (dead camera. Also, busy life), and I went thrift shopping again, I will instead give you a sneak peek at the things I bought.
And ahead of time, I apologize for the quality of the pictures/the dressing-room shots. My camera’s batteries died, thus… they’re all phone-camera pictures.
First, the six blouses (all button-up) in their various patterns:
Second, two skirts:
And I know I am not supposed to do this, but for this skirt I am going to try to lose five pounds. I love everything about it– the style, the cut, the buttons, the high waist. AH! It’s perfection. Five less pounds, and it would fit like a dream. (It was $2.50. Worth trying to lose five pounds for. And I should point out that it may look like it fits just fine, but I sat down in it and most of the buttons– which are snap buttons– popped open. That could create some awkward situations, ya know?)
Thirdly, three dresses:
And lastly, the GORGEOUS red gown I found. I am in love. It’s not the most flattering picture, but oh well. I am in love with this dress.
To give you an idea of what it takes to find these things:
I tried on 52 garments, and left with eleven.
I also bought a black and white ladybug brooch, and an elephant brooch. Which my phone’s camera refuses to take a good picture of.
Budget: $60. Money spent: $59.08. Average cost per item: $4.50
I hope to be back with outfit pictures tomorrow. I hope you all have a fabulous Monday!
