Thrifting Tuesdays-Going Green (part 3)

My friend Sarah’s pregnancy renewed my love of thrifting…(stay with me now!)

My sisters and I used to frequent our local thrift stores all through our high school years.

When I went off to college I thrifted a little, but mostly to find pieces for costumes.

Then I graduated, found a job, became a working professional, and spent all my extra money at the mall, trying to make up for all I had been “deprived” of because I was 1 of 9 siblings (boy I wish I still had that $$!).

So fast-forward 5 years or so….
and my friend Sarah became preganant! And I was hosting her “tea-party” baby shower at my house. And I needed to find cheap tea cups.

So I hit the thrift stores hard to find tea cups!
And as I was rushing out of one particular store, I happened to glance over at a rack of clothes.

I saw this green number, and within 30seconds I was back into thrifting mode!
“I like the color”
“This cut would disguise my post-baby hips”
“I could wear a cute belt with it”
“It’s modest so I can wear it to church”
“ok, it’s mine”

I don’t remember exactly, but I think I only spent $3-4 on it.
So glad Sarah got pregnant :)
