I heart Goodwill

So I went thrift-shopping on Sunday and bought a few things. It was fun.

I’m not going to say much, as I’m currently watching Hamlet with my best friend. So look on, and be jealous of my amazing thrift-store shopping skills. πŸ˜‰

This is the only decent picture I got today. The best friend was in the room, and I kept laughing. Most of them are like this:

So… y’know.

The green shirt and skirt Β are two of the things I bought on my birthday-shopping trip. The rest are as follows:

This one was one of those skirts that I tried on for the fun of it and ended up really liking.

Of course, you saw this yesterday.

I LOVE this. It’s a gorgeous dark navy, and the fabric is so soft and rich, and it’s so swishy. Sigh. Vintage-esque goodness.

A camisole, because you can never have enough of those. And it’s striped. Enough said.

The other item you saw yesterday.

And you can never have too many scarves. πŸ˜€

It’s an owl. I don’t even have to say anything.

Oh! And the owl pin I wore yesterday… that was also a Goodwill item. The best one, I think. πŸ™‚

I also bought a pair of shorts out of necessity; they’re unremarkable and you’ll probably see them eventually, if the weather gets really nice. Jean. Basic. They fit, and that’s all that matters. (It has been years since I’ve Β bought a pair of shorts! I’d forgotten that I kind of like them.)

Items purchased: 4 skirts, 2 shirts, 1 camisole, 1 scarf, 1 brooch, 1 candle, 1 pair of shorts
Amount spent: $43 and some change.

Verdict: I love Goodwill.

The end.

    I saw these two owl shirts I thought you might like but I can’t remember where I saw the cooler one =( Also I don’t think you’re really into graphic tees? Anyway here’s a link to one of them– But they’re so expensive so… =(

      I would totally wear it! It’s so cute!! I like graphic tees– I can still wear them with skirts, and over the summer I wear tee shirts more often with shorts. πŸ˜€

    I am absolutely in love with the plaid skirt. In love. One more item I so want to steal! And you wear it so well, jealous.

    I must say the owl, it’s a bit creepy. Just a tad.

    • Mara

      You may not steal it. But I will help you find one like it, if I can!

      And my owl is so not creepy! It’s adorable! πŸ˜€

    You are SO lucky! 43$ for all these beauties?? AAA!!! That IS perfection! πŸ˜€ Gorgeous pieces! I love the colors, it’s good to wear colors when the weather is good (yes, I have to remember this! Seems like I’m mostly wearing black ever since I left Chictopia…). Anyways, the outfit you’re weaering is so pretty and I LOVE the picture you laugh! πŸ˜€ The shoes are sooooo cute! Btw, the owl is..creepily adorable πŸ˜› πŸ˜›

      Yep! That’s why I love Goodwill so much! πŸ˜€ And YOU should wear more colors. πŸ˜‰ Because colors make life happy. Hehe.
