You can watch the haul up there or on my YouTube channel. And if you're dying to know what the videos are I mentioned, you can check them out below:
What were your best thrift finds this month? Is there anything I got that you wish you could pry from my cold dead hands?

Everything Old Is New Again

Sometimes clothes get hidden away for decades and other times they get hidden away for seasons. This halter top has been waiting for it's summer debut since it was worn last year. The temps were perfect last week so I was happy to don it on some errands and feel like a vintage vixen, of which I am not. I thought it would be fun to take these in the style of an old photograph. How come you never see girls in black and white photos of yesteryear with cellulite on their thighs?? At least now a fake one exists out there courtesy of yours truly. ;)

I'm hoping to do some thrifting tomorrow and hopefully discover some unloved clothes that need a new home. In case you're in need of a laugh, I posted a fun video yesterday highlighting the different kinds of people you come across at a thrift store. You can watch it below the outfit details or on my YouTube channel! Maybe I'll meet one or two of those people on my trip. lol

Just Say No To Sweatpants

My sister and I had an interesting conversation over the weekend (and it had nothing to do with any of Weird Al's amazing new music videos.) We were discussing how most people come home after a long day and immediately put on sweatpants or even no pants at all. But the interesting thing was that I disagreed with doing that while she was practically the spokesperson for comfy clothes. My argument was pretty simple in that if my clothes weren't comfy in the first place, I would not even want to own them. This outfit is a perfect example because everything is stretchy. My favorite fabric! It feels good on my body and it looks pretty cute, too. I don't believe in uncomfortable clothes. Shoes on other hand....

I know I have the unpopular opinion here but I swear that Tim Gunn can even back me up. To quote from his book Tim Gunn's Guide To Style:
"The truth is, with a bit of investigative effort and imagination, you can find something just-or almost-as comfortable that will not tell the world that you may take a nap or hit the gym at any moment."
Where do you stand on this issue? I would love to hear your take on this in the comments below.
