An Open Mind = Great Find!

Hello Thrift Hunters,

I hope you’ve been well. It’s been a little while since my last blog. I was consumed by work and will finally get a break from it sometime soon and I can’t wait!

In this week’s blog, I want to show you a simple “dress” I found at Goodwill. At just $4.48, I couldn’t afford to leave it on the rack.

Here’s the funny part, and a good reason to always shop with an open mind: My “dress” is actually a shirt with a pleated bottom and I found it in the extra large section!

I felt a bit guilty because there were so many options for smaller size clothes, but I still picked this. Or maybe did it pick me? Ha!

I would do anything for a dress with pockets, but I still couldn’t love this any less. I love the flower patterns and I love how free it makes me feel.

I decided to take a little walk in nature with my cute dress. I love how it makes me standout in all the greens of nature! Get out and shop at Goodwill with an open mind, and I’ll see you next time!

A Summer of Thrift Love

I hope you’re all having a fantastic summer! Mine has been pretty good for the most part. I’ve been working from home so I get to spend more time watching my favorite Netflix shows. Speaking about Netflix shows, I’ve been enjoying watching Korean dramas! Drop a comment below and let me know what shows you’ve been watching!

This week’s thrift outfit I found at Goodwill is a long simple flower dress with two side splits and off-the-shoulder sleeves. The dress is originally from Forever21, but  I thrifted it at Goodwill for just $5.98! It looks far more expensive on than $5.98!!

It doesn’t look like much on the hanger, but…

One of the things I love about the dress is it has a silicon lining on the chest area that allows it to stay in place and not accidentally reveal the entire chest area. The side split makes it super fun to wear. It feels great and dramatic whenever the cool breeze blows!

I wanted to wear it somewhere that’s also dramatic, so I headed out to the Hindu Temple of Florida in Tampa. What a beautiful place!

Isn’t it amaaaazing?!

This is as close to exotic traveling I could get with our current situation! But I think this dress would be great vacation attire to wear to for an afternoon lunch. Once everything settles, I plan to wear it everywhere LOL!

See you next time!

In the meantime, keep safe and enjoy the rest of your summer!
