Mustard flowers and thrifting

 My SIL is an amazing photographer and wanted to enter some photos in a fashion photography contest.  So...we went thrifting of course (4 year old niece helped too!) and this is what we came up with!  She took me to a little mustard flower field and I felt like I was in another world, we were still close to the city but far enough away to feel the sereneness of nature.  There were ladybugs, red-winged black birds, and a few beautiful mustard flowers still in bloom.

While hard to believe, this ENTIRE outfit was thrifted!  I just feel like i'm on cloud nine when I find a complete outfit in the thrift store :)  I've been meaning to get a floppy hat for awhile now and was about to pay full price for one until I happened upon this beauty for quite a steal!  If your new to thrifting, the best piece of advice I could offer is to never give up. From one day to the next you never know what amazing little gems you are going to find!  One day you may not find a darn thing, but the next day you may find a pair of Prada heels quietly hiding inside a dusty old suitcase??  That hasn't quite happened to me yet but I'm looking forward to that day ;)  Have a beautiful monday pretty ladies!

I've been doing a lot of thrifting lately...instead of going to class ;) Ok, well it only happened once, but I was already late so I thought I'd be polite and go to Goodwill instead of interrupting the lecture :) You know...I'm just considerate like that!   Now I think it's going to become a bad habit of mine because thrifting, on a weekday, in the morning, um that's like PRIME TIME to find the loot of the century!!

 Not good for my grades but super for my spring wardrobe!!  I found this GOLDMINE Goodwill near my University.  The Goodwill near my house is crap compared to this place!  My only qualms about Goodwill thrift stores vs. Deseret Industry thrift stores is this, when items don't have price tags they have to send it to the back to be priced (they tell you you have to wait 24 hrs. before it hits the floor again! boo hoo!).  That super Wilson's leather cross-body bag was sadly not available for purchase due to a missing price tag :(  Sometimes I wonder if the cashiers just want it and secretly stash it for themselves??  Anywho, I got some really great floral tops for a great deal and some practically brand new unique heels I am excited to style on the blog very soon!!  Happy Thrifty Thursday everyone!
