So I thought I'd get all cutesie and take a self-portrait.
Apparently I need to take lessons from my 15-year old sister. Ahem.
I took stock of my clothing situation for this coming fall and winter, and came to the conclusion rather quickly that I have nothing to wear! Well, that's not entirely true, but it's pretty close! I have a few skirts and a few sweaters and tops for every day use. For church I have a few outfits harking from 2002. So...how did I get in this situation?
Two years ago, I went through my clothes and realized that 1) I needed to lose weight, and 2) I didn't want to lose weight to get into the clothes I had. So I brilliantly donated almost everything to a thrift shop.
Two years later, and 20 pounds lighter (yay!) I now have nothing to wear!
So I decided to hit a local thrift shop and see what I could find. I don't have anything against shopping thrift stores, but I just don't like to do it. It feels like I'm digging through dirty laundry looking for one good thing.
Well, I found a few nice things, and all the clothes were on sale for $1 each! The shirt I'm wearing in the above picture has 3/4 length sleeves and a nice embroidery edge along the bottom. It's also made by J.Jill, which I think of as a nice brand.
I definitely do not have my entire winter wardrobe yet, I still need to work on that! But I'm happy with the few pieces that I got!
Do you like to shop at thrift stores? Any tips for me???
