The thrifting gods have been exceptionally good to me lately, yet I have no idea why.
I have been finding things that have me drooling at the mouth to wear.
These fabulous treasures cannot be cleaned and ready to wear fast enough for me.
My closets are bursting at the seams and this morning yet again, I find myself thumbing through hanger by hanger saying "Will I wear you this summer?"
Too dark, too heavy, just not feeling it, whatever the case is I need some major editing right now.
Then, on a day like yesterday, I am driving home from a hair appointment and as I see the sign for Goodwill I find myself magnetically drawn into the parking lot.
And I hate Goodwill.
Yet, on my visit yesterday I figured out how to deal with the sea of racks in Goodwill ala Eleanor style (but that should be a post in itself) and walked out of there within an hour with a Dana Buchman summer sweater, a vintage Liz Claiborne maxi dress I am DYING to wear, a vintage jacket that is beyond swoonworthy and brand spanking new vintage orange (i die!)pumps!
All for under $20!
Is there a 12~step program for this?
Last week I was on my bi~weekly run to our local wholesale club and tweeted how I was right by my favorite thrift store and debating whether or not I should go.
Pamela tweeted right back to have some strength and do my grocery shopping first but by the time I saw her message back to me it was too late and I was already inside, arms laden.
But I found this silk Tucker blouse I wore yesterday with my red pants that I cannot seem to get enough of.
So I say HA! to frugality as I continue to thrift my way onto a future episode of Hoarders: Buried Alive.
You will see my little hand waving to you all from under a massive pile of vintage.
