Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday!
I hope your week has been going well and that you are now gearing up for a wonderful weekend. Two Saturdays ago I drove to Claymont to meet Erin, a model in the 2014 Goodwill Runway Show for her final fitting.
We met to find the last few pieces to complete her wardrobe and afterwards we did a little thrifting for ourselves.
Erin found these metal pieces which she said she’ll use as candle covers, vases for artificial plants or maybe to hang her earrings. What do you think, what would you use them for?
This Briggs New York Skirt will be added to my collection ($3.75) and the new Victoria Secrets Handbag will be part of the Goodwill Runway Show Boutique.
I hit the jackpot in the men’s department and was able to stock up on sweaters for my sons and hubby also $3.75 each #winning
Can’t beat finding a J. Crew sweater for only $3.75
Too bad this shopper found this faux suede jacket first, otherwise it would have been in my cart! Don’t you think it would have been perfect with the skirt?
Even with snow on the ground, it’s never to early to think about Spring and Summer shoes. Check out the embellishment on these acrylic sandals – cute!
Now I need to gather more items to donate back to Goodwill!
Have you done any winter thrifting, if so, why not share at Thrifters Anonymous

Hello friends, I hope you had a nice weekend and was able to do something special with the extra hour on Sunday.
As you know, I’ve been on a mini self-imposed shopping freeze so I didn’t need to…but I wanted to…therefore, I did! I thawed the freeze just a bit and this is the result of a mini thrifted haul from GW Boutique in Newark! It was my first time at this location on the campus of The University of Delaware, but it definitely will not be my last.
You can never have too many skirts!
I am a proud, card carrying Goodwill VIP
This thrifted haul cost less than $20 and it even included a Graduation Gown that my son wore to a Halloween party last weekend
(he better be wearing a real one in May!)
I love love love this Talbots Floral Skirt – $3.75
J Crew Grey Skirt Skirt – $3.75
JCPenney Worthington Suede Maxi Skirt – $3.75
You know I couldn’t pass on these polka dot capris – $3.75
What do you think?
Have you done any Fall thrifting?
Linking up today with Thrifters Anonymous so come on over and meet some other great thriftanistas.
Have a fantabulous day – Smooches!
Yesterday I had a dental appointment and because I live in Delaware, it didn’t make since to drive to work in Pennsylvania afterwards so I took a vacation day. The weather was extremely nice, not too hot and humid so instead of a maxi dress, I wore shorts, and a tank top with flip flops. I joined the BLMGirls Facebook group and while reading the blogs I found recommendations for various photo editing websites, I used Pixl to edit and create this collage.

I hope everyone had a great weekend and was able to enjoy this beautiful Sunday a day the Lord hath made. The weather is gorgeous but the sun is intense. My men and I worked outside yesterday and I have yet to put on sun screen (smack my hand) and my back is getting darker and darker. Today Tayair and I went grocery shopping at Food Lion, once the weather heats up my menu lightens up so I was able to get everything for less than $100.00!
Tanks – Old Navy// Shorts – closet staple 10+ years// J. Crew Flip Flops – Goodwill//Bag – Walmart// XOXO Sunnies – won from @PennyChic// Watch – Avon
Orange is one of my favorite colors because it can be worn any time any season. I love the brightness of this thrifted J. Crew top paired with the asymmetrical brown and beige skirt especially on such a warm and bright day.

Yesterday I hit up the Goodwill stores in Thorndale and Chadds Ford, PA. The clerks were busily filling the racks with Spring and Summer wear and I was able to snag a few items to add to my wardrobe. Today I am taking a box to the Goodwill in Middletown because for everything I bring home, I remove something from my closet and donate.
I’ve decided to take pictures while in the store even though other customers look at me like…”who is she and why is she taking pictures”, it makes me feel like Re’gine in the episode of “Living Single” when she pulled together an outfit while working at “Le Rag Bin” for the soap opera “Palo Alto” – Smooches!
