I like clothes…lots of clothes…CUTE clothes!
When I was growing up my mother called me a ‘clothes horse’!
I have always enjoying looking through the clearance racks and buying things at the end of the season for really good, discounted prices.
But I NEVER thought I would buy my clothes at the Thrift Store! (I hope that doesn’t sound snooty! lol)
The Hospice Thrift store goes through each item of clothing and doesn’t put anything out that is worn or has a stain. They donate ‘worn’ clothing to a local church. (this black shirt was brand new!)
So it’s much more fun to look through clothing that is in great shape at amazing prices. Here in Florida we dress very casual….tee shirts and shorts or capris and sandals are the order of the day. Add some pretty jewelry to dress things up.
And the prices? Most of the tee shirts are $1.50. You just can’t beat that! Well, except that I get a discount for being a frequent shopper!
I look for brand names (I like Talbots, Chicos, J Crew, Tommy Hilfiger, Ralph Lauren and my favorite…Carribean Joe) and I usually try things on. (sometimes sizes can be tricky!) I tried on this top and skirt together and paid $3.50 for BOTH!
I thought of Linda at A La Carte when I found this top. She’s traveling to Paris in a few days! I have the top, Linda…can I come, too?
I’m joining Thrifty Things Friday!
Also Katherine’s Corner,
and Jann for Share Your Cup !
(for lounging around the house)
I think it’s fun to add new things to my wardrobe and keep my closet updated by donating clothing that I don’t like any more or doesn’t fit quite right. It’s all about comfort and feeling good….and being ‘cute’ at any age…don’t you think?
