Pulp Sushi and New Weekly Series

Hello Lovelies! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! Today I have some great news to share. First, today I am being featured over at Pulp Sushi! Yes, Marilyn--an oh so amazing talented blogger and jewelry maker--is hosting a huge October Bash Blogger Party and invited bloggers to guest post on her blog. I decided to write an outfit pairing post based on some of my inspirational flavors of the season. It's so cool and a great honor to be featured via a guest post (of course this is my first time...can't you tell?). I hope that you check out my "Fashion with Halloween Flavors" post over at Pulp Sushi. Make sure to let me know what fall flavors have been inspiring you below in the comments. I'd love to know!



I must admit that shopping and purchasing new items for my wardrobe has to be one of my favorite pass times. Now when I say favorite I mean FAVORITE. I love window shopping and picking out a freshly, unworn garment from a hanger in a shiny retail store. Though the high I get from buying something brand spanking new is great and all, there is something about thrift shopping that truly sends me shooting through the roof with excitement. Knowing that I bought something that someone else probably doesn't have is thrilling all in its self. Not to mention I spend next to nothing for it. Because I enjoy thrifting so much, I decided to give myself a little challenge. 



In a new weekly series I will find the best goodies available at my local thrift shop using only $10 to spend. That's it! It is a challenge to myself to see potential in items others have chosen to give away. I am not bias when it comes to clothes. When I see a good deal, new or used I jump on it. Sometimes I like it better when I find a gently used item and make it my own. It makes me feel unique in the way that a brand new article of clothing doesn't. I'm not saying that I feel like everything in the stores are the typical cookie cutter design, but I appreciate when I can change it up from what it looks like in another person's closet. Being unique is important to me. Then again I just like being myself. Dressed in new clothes or not, it is all about expression and having fun with it. So there, my explanation as to why I have decided to take on my own $10 challenge. I am sure I am bound to find some interesting things in my search. Stay tuned for my weekly series, Thrift-Ten fix!



The hunt is on!!
