RFF: what's old is new


Top: $4 Skirt: $5 Shoes: $20

I went to H&M this weekend. I came out with a sweater and a few things for my kids, but I gotta admit, I love my thrifted clothing. There are just so many unique and charming pieces waiting to be found. I know when I wear something thrifted, chances are, I'm not going to see anything like it anywhere else. Money has been tight for us over the years, so I'm thankful that I wasn't afraid to step into the D.I. (local thrift) and give it a shot. It has become a really fun hobby for me, it's helped me think outside the box, excercise my creativity, and dive further into what my style might be. It's taught me a thing or two about vintage, and it's made me find ways to make something old new. Oh, and the money saved never hurts. :)

I thrifted a few new pairs of vintage earrings to add to my collection. I'm loving the simple round ones.

That top and shoes are amazing!! I'm jealous of your thrifting skills, and next time my mom asks me if I want to hit up the DI, I definitely will! :)
