Congrats Ladies!  Please email me with your mailing address.

So I got my “Green” shopping on this past weekend!

Inspired by all my new found thrifting bloggy friends, P and I got up and headed to Goodwill.  I was told thrifting was a good place to find this season hot bow blouse tops, cute blazers and skirts.  I was only interested in the blouse.  So I went straight to the tops.  Within 2 mins I found this bad boy!

SCORE!  I could not believe it!  Now it has a few stains but I scrubbed it up pretty good.  But if you see any stains while I am wearing it just act like you didn’t.

Then at the Swapanista event on the same day, this was is the swapping suite!  2 in one day!  Holla!  Because of the pattern it’s hard to see the bow but you can kind of see it below.

I picked up this incredible vintage sequin top at the Swapanista event also.  I love sequins!  So I had to have this.  Just think, with some skinny black pants or dark jeans and some BAD shoes!  What!
What they say is true, what goes around comes back around!  I am looking forward to my future thrifting adventures.  I have not had any luck finding items for Peyton.  Where do you go for “Green” shopping or to find the best thrifting items?  Goodwill?  Salvation Army?

    Goodwill and yardsales for me. Consignment shops are nice too, but I find that they can be way overpriced. Welcome to the thrifting world!

    Before I show my excitement…Those are great finds. I just went thrifting for blouses as well and scored some cute items. I love your picks. I usually go to Goodwill and a local thrift store in my area.

    Now for the excitement…Yay! I’m so happy to win the giveaway and I’m already putting an outfit together in my head to wear with it. Thanks for choosing me!

    I love your sequin shirt. There is nothing better than sequin!

    I love the Goodwill and Saver’s. I also don’t mind the Salvation Army but the one near my home is a little overpriced.

    That blue sequined top is the business!!!

    I go to a Goodwill down the street from my house, and a Salvation Army a few blocks from work. Best of both worlds – LOL!!!
