She Thrifted

jessie_thrifted[1]

Meet Jessie from Style and Pepper. She thrifted this pretty dress.
I met Jessie in Texas last spring and I just love that girl. I've already gushed about her on the blog before but she is just so sweet, funny, smart, pretty and hardworking. Basically she is the embodiment of every positive adjective but I am just too lazy to write them all out. Recently she moved from Kansas City, Missouri to Hoboken, New Jersey. That means she now lives twice as close to me she did before. I checked. One more move may bring her across the border and into my loving (possessive?) arms. Here's hoping...
I'm curious to see if her style changes in her new location... but I am especially curious to hear how the thrifting compares...

Jessie's dress is lovely, as is the scarf she belted it with!

Love her outfit! Fantastic. Jentine, you and your blog have inspired me to try out thrifting. I've been curious for a long time but always felt overwhelmed. But your blog is so fun and your posts are so helpful! I went on my first excursion over the weekend and bought THREE leather belts(thanks to your post forever ago about fail-safe bets at thrift stores). Yay! So thank you!

I concur :) I love the dress with the makeshift belt from your featured blogger, AND your thrifting advice. I've become obsessed thanks to your blog and it's just so much fun! It's a whole new hobby. Now if I can just get as lucky as you! Or just get your skills. Pretty sure it's skills, actually.

That's one pretty dress Jessie! Such a timeless beauty, I can see her wearing it ten years from now with a different styling and still'd be great! Love it with boots!

Thank you mucho, Mamacita! You flatter me, and I blush and get all awkward, and then I hug you because you're standing right next to me, and THEN I wake up from my dream. :) XOXOXO

If you guys start a Tall Beautiful People who Thrift Club, can I be a groupie? Just load me up with silk dresses and I'll hand them to you outside the dressing room.
