Thrifting with Madre

Amen, Amen, AMENN!! I hadn't been thrifting in foreeeverr.
But even better than that, I've been spending more and more time with my mom lately, and its greatly needed since I will be going to college in say...a year and a half from now? We got some great finds like this belt from "Gadzooks"? Never heard of the store, but I'll be up in my room later trying to figure out what to wear with it.
And since mother just brought her sewing machine she ended up buying some fabric-ok LOTS of fabric, like rolls of it. But all in all we spent less thana $20 that day which is a thrifting MIRACLE.
Then We proceeded to the mall where I left her alone-BAD IDEA. Becuase I didn't want her to spend anything since she always complains about money, but behold when I got back in less than an hour she'd already been at bath and body works, brought about a year's worth of perfume. Ahh I love my mother. So contradictory like myself, I now see where I get it from :).

random, but you'll notice I could'nt find mini vaseline bottles ANYWHERE. But of course I found it in a random street corner store- you know the one where they sell the milk right next to the t-shirts?

Its fun digging in the back of your closet and saying "HEY! I forgot you were in there!"


  1. I love thrifting! It's so satisfying - getting so much stuff for such little cost! SO GREAT.

    And it's definitely the best when you find things in the back of your closet that you forgot about. Like, "Heyyyy girl. I forgot about you but you're amazing."

    Thanks so much for stopping by!

  2. Oh My, the white quilted bag is gorgeous!!
