Hello lovely friends,

I cannot believe we are almost done with the month of January. I hope all has been well with you. School has been great so far and not too stressful. (At least not yet haha). I’ve been managing my time well, so I decided to get back to an old hobby – longboarding. I haven’t been on my board for about 6 months.

I decided to fashionably debut my first longboard ride of the year, courtesy of Goodwill.

On this longboard thrift hunt, I spotted this button up shirt from Vans. It was originally marked as $39.50. Goodwill priced it at $7.98; which is a steal! But to top it off, it was a red tag discount week, so I paid just 4 BUCKS for the shirt. Although I shop at Goodwill all the time, I’m always amazed at the inventory and the prices!

Super cute, right?

The other item I found was also brand new with tags on! Old Navy jeans, with a stretchy, super skinny fit. I paid $9.98 for these.

I always opt for a high waist skinny jean because low waist jeans pull down when I bend low. These pants are perfect, giving me comfort and mobility while I cruise on my board.

My thrift hunt was incredibly terrific. I wanted to literally purchase the entire store. Getting back on my board felt nice. I had fun riding my board while looking fashionable at the park. I would totally love to know how you spend your leisure time, and what hobbies you have. Drop a comment below!

Happy New Year, my lovely friends and fellow thrifters!

I hope the holidays brought you more joy than you could ever imagine. Mine was great. I got to catch up on some much needed sleep. School resumed for the spring semester and I’m excited to get it done and over with. I decided to you show you my super casual (yet stylish!) on-a-budget school outfit. The lecture rooms are always cold and I hate shivering to my bones. So I decided to wear a sweater.

I came across this Express sweater from Goodwill. It is unbelievably soft and light weight. It had a little stain on the arm, but it was in a great condition. The price was $7.98, which is amazing, but I asked for a discount because of the stain. The manager was incredibly sweet and offered it to me for half off! Say whaaat?!

On the first day back from the holiday break I wanted to look a bit stylish and chic. I decided to pair my outfit with these heeled “flats” I found at Goodwill, just $7.96!  I usually opt for a pair of flat shoes since the lecture halls and buildings are quite a stretch from each other, but these shoes felt like walking on clouds and they did not make much noise either!

My first day back to school was amazing! I liked all my professors. This simple outfit gave me all the comfort I needed. I felt cozy, comfy, and cute – which contributed to an effective learning day for me!

 

(It’s also good to learn you can look great while dressing for less! I give myself an A+!)

TWO party outfits for $22!

Hello lovely thrifters,

It’s 2020 already! I hope all your dreams and plans worked out for you this year. I never have any concrete resolutions, but 2019 has been a year of personal growth for me.

On this week’s Goodwill hunt, I want to show you my New Year’s Eve outfit ideas. I saw a shimmery black miniskirt from Goodwill for $4.48 and I suddenly had lots of ideas on how to style it.

During my shopping week the Goodwill Color of the Week was purple. I was in luck! I found a beautiful blush mini dress with the original Goodwill price of $9.98 – with a purple tag it was a steal for 50 percent off! The dress originally sold at Macy’s, and still had all its original Macy’s tags. I thought it could be a perfect color block if paired with the sparkly skirt.

The other item I found was a nice 100 percent silk top with a beautiful neck design. It looked brand new and was just $4.48 at Goodwill. (For now this shirt is my absolute favorite.) The color and the style has stolen my heart.

While shopping I almost gave up hope on finding shoes, but the Goodwill guardian angels were beside me! I found the coolest and most comfortable silver platform shoes. I was super excited when I found them and they fit just right! Best of all, the Goodwill price tag was just $7.96!

Say bye bye to partying in heels. I’m jubilating into 2020 with the comfy shoes!

So after spending about $22 at Goodwill, I came up with these two party outfit ideas! That’s $11 an outfit, friends!

Here I tucked the blush-colored mini-dress into the sparkly skirt – I LOVE the color combination (and the shoes!)
This is the sparkly skirt paired with my beloved silk blouse – and the awesome platform sneakers!

Which outfit is your favorite? Drop a comment and let me know!
