Thrifting Guru

So my sister was off work yesterday and asked me to be "her thrifting guru" as she needed use of my car and help shopping for a gift for her friend. I don't claim to be a thrifting expert or really all that helpful. In fact as soon as we got to Goodwill, I left her to explore the racks and only looked up to tell her not to buy a coat.

We needed up going to this little vintage store in Seattle called Found It, where I found the most fabulous hat which my sister hated. I told her I missed Amanda then pulled out my phone to text Amanda the same thing.

Sweater: Nordstrom Rack, Top: F21, Jeans: Levi's, Scarf: Gift,Shoes: Target, Ring: Stella & Dot, Necklace: Thrifted

The amazing clutches I found at Goodwill. They don't look that old but seem handmade. I love having extra little bags cause I use them all the time in my purse or when I travel. Plus these are a more interesting than regular cosmetics bags.

And the 2nd thing I picked up was this dress, which I really liked at the store and didn't try on cause I knew if would fit. But when I put it on at home, I was in LOVE, the kind of feeling you get when you know that you were meant to own this item.

Of course, I had to send Amanda a picture (which is totally normal for us). And in case you ever wondered what we text about- it's clothes.


  1. I really like this mint-teal-grey-zebra thing you're doing!
