Thrift-Ten Fix

Hello Lovelies!! I have been out of the style mingle loop the past few days and I blame it on this confused weather. One minute it looks like it's going to be warm temperatures and sunny days, next it's breezy, cool and outright raining. I know spring is suppose to be a mix of temperatures with lots of rain, but is it bad of me to be anxious for the warmer air? I guess that's why I jumped on this fabulous find at my local thrift store in high hopes of late spring's warm air and bright sun.

It's been a long time since I've done a Thrift-Ten Fix post. What initially was suppose to be a weekly post series has somewhat turned into a rather non existent series. I guess I wasn't anticipating life to take charge and tell me how a designated posting actually works. Well excuse me father time but I gave birth to this project and I intend to keep it a float, so work with me here! LOL!! In agreement with the good ole "Big Papa Tick-Tock", I've decided to in turn make this a bi-weekly series instead of weekly. Let's be honest, as much as I want to go to my favorite consignment shops every week, life basically has the ultimate say over my schedule. Childcare, birthday parties, work, and other shenanigans have priority over the tickety-tock of my everyday clock. So, I hope you don't mind when I say that I possibly bit off a bit more than I could chew when I initially said it would be weekly. Not to fret though, I intend on still making and sharing fabulous finds under $10...just on a bi-weekly schedule.

All right, now that the air is clear let me show you the lovely find I made at one of my favorite Goodwill stores.

This cute little dress looked so sweet with the feminine detailing along the bust line. White wash dots throughout the chambray fabric reflect a lightweight casual look perfect on it's own or layering under light cardigans for those much anticipated spring breezes.

Thrift shopping is so much fun to me because I love that I can find great second hand clothes for cheap, but one thing I love even more than that is finding brand new items at my local thrift shops. As I mentioned in a prior post, Target tends to donate a lot of clearance items to my local Goodwills. I am not sure if this is just local or if Target does it everywhere, but if you do find some Target goodies at your local Goodwill take it and run!! 

At Target, this dress was marked down to $8.38. Not bad for a cute Spring/Summer dress in my opinion. I most likely would have bought this dress at that price if I found it in Target, but guess what...I didn't!! LOL!! Nope it was gracefully hanging on a rack in Goodwill so the price had to of been something even better. What is it you ask?

Wait for it.......Wait for it.......$3.99!! YES, at that price it was an even better steal! I was so happy to pick up this little jewel for a fraction of the price I would have spent not only brand new at Target, but on clearance.

Like any other fashion/style loving girl, I love to go shopping, but there is just something extra special about thrift shopping on a budget that makes purchasing an item for my closet that more rewarding. After this find, I think my Thrift-Ten Fix luck is picking up!
