Dress? Thrifted Belt? Thrifted Shoes? Jeffrey Campbell Necklaces? Stolen from my Mama and Cuba
I got this dress for $1 in Texas while thrifting with Kendi. I almost left this dress behind because I had found so much good stuff already that I was too lazy to buy more. Glad I bought it though.
Laziness often stops me from going to garage sales because it involves getting up early on a Saturday. Laziness often stops me from finishing the last 25 miles of a marathon. Laziness always stops me from starting the first mile of a marathon. It nearly stopped me from buying a non-see-through-off-white (so many hyphens, so little time) dress with great details, fit and pockets... for a dollar. If I had left it behind, I would still be boring Matt with my thrift regret. Happily, I can bore him with outfit ideas instead.
In other happy news, the sweet and sassy ladies (ultimate words of flattery...) who run EBEW are hosting a thrift edition next week Thursday, July 21. Usually style ideas are suggested and then voted upon but I slipped both ladies a toonie (that's a two dollar coin for your non-Canadians) and they agreed that Everybody Everywhere should bust out their best thrift duds for an extra special edition of EBEW. So, if you have a thrift find that you are extraordinarily proud of or one that you know will induce pangs of jealousy (within me), make sure you read all the details here and post next week. Then make sure you submit to EBEW and ogle what others submitted as well. I can't wait! Well, I can... but I don't want to...
