HEY Lovelies!! How was your weekend? (I really want to know!) My weekend was great! We had a little end of the school year/going away party for my niece and nephew Friday night (which included my almost busting my head trying to do some balancing thing my little cousin showed me, lol); after getting my niece and nephew packed up and off to move back with their father (my brother) Saturday, I spent a few hours lazing around and somehow ended up spending 7 hours thrifting and having dinner with Reiko (you should’ve seen our packed basket). I spent Sunday doing absolutely nothing after church, lol, and it was fantastic! Now I’m ready to start a new week of working on making my dreams and goals a reality! Are you looking forward to the week ahead?
Reiko spotted this dress during our thrifting excursion (for the record I am no avid thrifter), and we both instantly fell in love with it! She calls it “the Modcloth” dress, as it totally looks like something you’ll see on Modcloth, like this dress of similar shape. I call it “the Reiko” dress because she found it for me and got so excited when I stepped out of the fitting room in it :-). While at the store, Reiko insisted that I wear this dress to church Sunday, but I resisted that idea because I usually dry clean my clothes first, but when I got home, I realized I didn’t have anything to wear to church (not exactly the truth, lol), so I threw it in the dryer with some dryer sheets before church, and headed out the door :-). I will definitely be taking it (and my other goodies) to the cleaners today though!
I’m SO smitten with the print of the dress!! I really like the pairing of navy and white, probably more than black and white.
Are you an avid thrifter? If so, what are your favorite thrift stores? As someone who doesn’t exactly have the patience for thrifting(I buy most of my vintage on Etsy, from Imperfect Concepts, or other small business), or any shopping that requires me to go through racks of clothes piece by piece/ hanger by hanger, I’d love to hear your thrifting tips!
P.S. I got super spoiled by having my nephew as my photographer; now I have to rebuild my self-photography skills (and get a remote for my camera).
P.P.S. I accidentally ended up with a side ponytail when I did my hair Saturday, but I loved it, so I’ll be bringing back the high side ponytail back this Summer ;-).
