RFF: The best. boots. ever.

I have a special announcement. Melissa approached me a few weeks ago about joining her annual Thrift-a-thon. I told her I was SO in. Any thrifty ladies in the Utah area wanna come?? 

 

We'll be hitting a few of our favorite thrift stores in the Salt Lake valley and getting some lunch. It should be a lot of fun and some good cheap shopping. If you'd like to join us, head over to Melissa's blog and R.S.V.P. by December 2nd. I'd love to see you there! Now for RFF:

 These were a pair of boots that I found at my local thrift store (D.I.) for all of $5. I fell in love and truly thought they were amazing. Don't they have so much personality?


I also wore them to the Bijou Market.

Striped Top: J.Crew, Auction Retailer, $7
Cardigan: Anthropologie, Thrifted
Scarf: Vintage, Belonged to my Gram
Jeans:F21, $12
Boots:Thrifted, $5

YOU'RE KILLIN ME PETEY! Just another reason why I should have moved to Utah. Gracious. Nobody ever does cool stuff like that up here. Idaho you are DEAD TO ME.
DEAD. you hear?

Anyway. Those boots are AH-mazing. I seriously want to find the person who gave those away and smack them right in the head. WHY would you ever let those things out of your sight?!!
The perfect girl found them though ... you look so punky hot in these. Bet you guys did it that night, didn't you? Didn't YOUUU?!

Knew it.

I LOVE those boots. First of all, I can't believe someone gave them up and second, $5?? Oh you're so lucky :)

christa @ enSTYLEpedia said...

seriously- you have the BEST luck thrifting. i think that DI has a lot to do with it...there are only goodwill's here and they just aren't the same. all though there are a few local places that can have some amazing gems. you look fabulous!

ashley said...

Want want WANT those boots. Wish I was there to thrift but I won't be in Utah again until the week after. If you guys do it again maybe I can come and you can teach me how you do it because I just don't have the patience to look through clothes at DI.

Angela said...

You look awesome with those boots. I love the striped shirt with the scarf too! I wish people around where I live did thrift shopping like that. Sounds like so much fun! I have to thrift alone. Boo! :)

Soo cute! I really wanna come to the thrift thing cause I might be up there anyway this weekend! I need serious help learning to shop. I hesitate to rsvp though cause it all depends on the weather. Ugh, decisions, decisions.

Ok so I know that I already commented today, but I just read your posts about your mom and your brother and I was so touched. It gave me a good cry. I love your description of you and your brother's relationship. Makes me think of mine with my sister. So special. BAH! I'm a cry baby!
