Props to Ugly Mug for the post title. I am the worst at post titles.
You know what else I am the worst at? Thrifting. Actually, I am pretty damn good. However, I am the worst when it comes to buying pieces that I fall in love with, are a great price, but don’t necessarily fit the best. That wouldn’t be such a bad thing, but, I cannot sew, hem, DIY, alter, etc.
An example: the skirt in this post. It’s ankle length; I just rolled it up until it was the length I wanted. Luckily this tank is loose so you cannot see the gigantic roll of khaki underneath.
If you make it to the end of the post, you just might get a peak of what I am hiding under my shirt.
I am scared of the Googlers that may find my blog because of that previous sentence.
I suppose I could get this skirt altered, but I like knowing that I have the option to change the length whenever I want. Mini, midi, ankle; three skirts, and trends, in one!
Thrifty Tip #46291: Just because it doesn’t fit, doesn’t mean you can’t make it fit.
Yes, it may appear uneven in some photos. I never said I was an expert skirt roller. I think it adds charm.
I cannot warn you enough that you will get tired of seeing me in this jacket. It’s fall. Fall is a time for denim jackets. Therefore, I will be wearing my denim jacket. Expect for when I take it off for photos. Fact: I will never keep a vest or jacket on for all photos. Don’t ask me why.
I am in full on pre holiday mode. All I want to do is bake. And read baking recipes. And craft. And I don’t even craft, but the holiday season makes us believe that we can craft. Or gives us the urge to.
The stamp on my hand came from the Good: street food + design market I went to earlier in the day. It showcases tons of local vendors, and I discovered this pretty amazing new shop and got a couple of leather goodies. Check out Something Borrowed.
You know when you potentially have a good thing happen to you and you don’t want to talk about it as to not jinx it? I have that now.
I hope that doesn’t mean that I half jinxed it.
Ooh, blogger secrets!
