Thrifty Thursday






I love Thrifting! I can't even tell you how much. I bought this vest and the purse this week at my favorite local Consignment shop! I am in LOVE with Coach and actually just bought a brand new bag on my trip to St. George with my friends. Ashley and I went to go sell some clothes a couple days ago and I spotted this Coach bag and knew I had to have it. It was marked at $40 and they were having a 1/2 price sale. I thought I'd check my luck and see if the bag was part of the sale. IT WAS. So I paid $20 for this beaut!! Then I was flipping through a few things and spotted this real leather vest. Let me just tell you, the leather is so soft!  It was marked at $35 and I asked the store clerk how low she might go on it. She said $15 and am I so cheap I still wanted to go cheaper?? But I LOVED it so I decided I'd just go for it at that price. When we got to the register she said, "I'll give it to ya for $12." Wohooooo...I was delighted.
My Sis Jen took my pictures tonight.
We're still learning hence the picture with my head cut off and the one of me looking at who knows what on my shirt! It was clean I promise. But give me a little credit. 1-It was cold 2-it was freezing  3-it was kinda getting dark so we wanted to get what we could out of the light. and 4-did I mention it was really cold so I didn't even bother looking at the pictures to see if I was liking them. LOL! If anyone has photography advice or ideas don't hesitate to shout them out!
Anyone else who loves Thrifting, message me so I can see your glorious finds as well!


Beijos!
