BOW TIED

I’m not usually big on bows.

But this DRESS, though.

I paired it with some gold jewelry and no one watching TV that night would’ve suspected everything was thrifted!

Calvin Klein dress: $7, Seattle Goodwill (Ballard location)

Gold cuff: $1.50, Seattle Goodwill (SLU location)

Gold index ring: $3, Seattle Goodwill (SLU location)

FOX AND KORS

For today’s show, I wore two of my favorite recent thrifting finds: a fox ring and a Michael Kors dress!

I bought them separately but let’s just pretend I had the silver and black color combo worked out in my head the entire time.

Adjustable fox ring: $3, Seattle Goodwill (University District location)

Michael Kors dress: $10, Seattle Goodwill (Ballard location)

YES TO THE DRESS

This perfect, summer-ish day gave me a chance to wear my new (to me) dress WITH POCKETS, YOU GUYS!

I paired it with a thrifted necklace, ring, and bracelet - and for good measure, wore some thrifty peep-toes and sunglasses, too.

Max and Cleo dress: $7, Seattle Goodwill (Ballard location)

Statement necklace: $12, Seattle Goodwill (SLU location)

Gold chain bracelet: $8, Seattle Goodwill (SLU location)

Gold ring: $3, Seattle Goodwill (SLU location)

Sunglasses: $10, NYC street vendor

RINGING ENDORSEMENT
I feel like a super hero when I wear this ring.
Partly, because it’s like armor.
Partly, because I thrifted it for a song!

RESTORATION RESALE

One corner of my dining room was a disaster, because my kids are into creativity and art and massive amounts of clutter.

ENTER: a sad little night stand at Goodwill, just waiting to be converted into something awesome!

I picked the paint color.

My husband sanded & painted it.

And my dining room doesn’t qualify for FEMA funds anymore!

Vintage night stand: $9.99 at Seattle Goodwill (SLU location)

So… I guess my kid is a meme?
Whoa.

WHOA BOY

A drizzly Sunday calls for comfort.

And dressing like a boy is about as comfy as it gets!

ENTER: a pair of thrifted cropped jeans.

Add some Vans and subtract some make-up… and, voila!

Rock and Republic distressed denim: $9.99 at Seattle Goodwill, SLU location

TIME KEEPER

There are not adequate words to describe my obsession with this ring.

It’s a clock. And it WORKS.

Vintage Trifari 17 Jewels ring: $13 at Seattle Goodwill, SLU location.

(But it was 1/2 price day, so I only paid $6.50!)
