It’s late in the day, but I am still making my (self-imposed) deadline!
Time for the Flawed Mama’s thrift store finds:
Confession: I didn’t plan on buying anything when we went thrifting. Melanie (15) and Angela (13) were the driving force behind our trip. –BUT- how boring is it to just stand around while other people shop? I figured I would browse the racks, but I promised myself that I wouldn’t purchase anything unless I loved it.
I found three things to love.
The first thing I found was this awesome brown baby-doll style top. I was so excited because it looks just like a brown top that I had about 10 years ago and wore once a week until it literally wore out. When the hem unraveled for the second time and a new hole sprouted nowhere near a seam, I finally got rid of it. To find a shirt so similar made me gasp. Next step was to check the price tag. It was $5.99, and a red tag, which meant was half off. SOLD!
Next up was the pair of Saint John’s Bay jeans. I had been checking out the jeans at Sam’s Club because my favorite pair had finally worn through on the right knee (I am noticing a theme here with my worn out clothes). While some people can sport holey jeans and look amazing, I look homeless. Out they went. That’s why I was willing to try these jeans on. Normally they cost $50 at JC Penny when they are not on sale, but they were marked $7.99 and were half off as well? Worth a shot, right? They fit like a glove. SOLD!
The last item was probably my favorite find. Living in Fort Worth, every day is a good day to wear purple thanks to TCU. I love that! Priced at $5.99 I would have paid full price for it, but alas, it had a red tag, so… Half off baby!!
I walked out spending just over $10 with tax for 3 items that I have already gotten mileage out of. I even took my latest head shot in the purple blouse.
Money. Well. Spent.
