i heart thrifting

Since the start of this year, I've solely done my clothes shopping at thrift stores.
I plan to continue for the rest of 2011 :)
It saves mulah and I think it's helping me be a little more green...thrifting is just a stylish and more personal way of recycling, right?

Today was a VERY good day at my local thrift store.

I went in looking for an Easter outfit, and I totally scored one...plus some ;)
(I'll openly admit I take full advantage of any excuse to buy a new outfit...holidays, weddings, celebrations...who's with me??)

Here she is:
top: $4
skirt: $4
shoes: $6

Close-ups :)

I also found another shirt and pair of semi-flat wedges...the 2 tops are similar (both button up, light colored, faint pin stripes) but I couldn't resist! Plus this one below has a slight empire waist so I can wear it next time I'm prego!
top: $5
shoes: $4

more close-ups :)

And last but not least...this LOVELY bowl. It seemed to be glowing in the shelf :)

I canNOT wait to fill it with gorgeous pears and oranges and place it in our new kitchen!!

Speaking of kitchen...it's being painted today!...the can lights are being installed... and then hopefully Friday the cabinetry will be installed...then the granite in another week or two. *whew* It's all coming together wonderfully!!
We feel so blessed to be [finally] making this house our home.
