Hello everyone! Today was beautiful, warm, and just an overall lovely day! The first day of the garage sale went well. My sister and I made over a hundred dollars! After the garage sale today, however, was when the real fun started for me. I went on a little thrifting hunt, hehe :D
First,I went to a church rummage sale( my favorite!), and they had SUPER good deals. All of their clothes were originally $1, but they marked them down to .50 soon after I arrived. I found the most darling little plaid coat that will be perfect in the fall. Paying .50 cents for the coat made me feel like a total robber! Also, I got the two purses, white and floral, in the above picture. Both purses were for a dollar and were great finds, as well! Gosh, I'm so in love with the floral purse...It goes with so much and it fits my style to a T! Oh, and the white one? Well, I'm not sure but it might be a real Chanel purse. It could possibly be a knock off, but it had on the inside the Chanel label. Is anyone an expert on knockoffs? Is there anyway to definitely tell a real from a fake? I'm just curious to find out, so if anyone could help me it would be greatly appreciated!
Next, I went to a huge block sale in a near by neighborhood, and it would be my luck that I would go to probably about 10 and not find something until the last one! I sure am glad I went to that one garage sale though because I got the GORGEOUS hot pink maxi dress! I was so excited when I found it! The lady (whom my mother knows so I trust) said it's about 20 or so years old and she bought it in Florida when she was fifteen. She also said that she actually paid quite a bit of money for it when she bought it, and I only bought it off of her for a dollar! I liked the dress so much that when I got home I put an outfit together with it and went off to take blog pictures! I was in luck because the floral purse went beautifully with the dress.
Oh, and I can't forget about the scarf either! When I went thrifting with my grandmother last Friday I picked the baby up for .25! Whoo! It goes nicely with a lot of things, and I've already put together a few outfits to pair it with ;)
Thrifting total: $3.75!
It was a such a successful day! I'm so pleased with my garage sale and also the thrifting finds. Hope everyone is having lovely, relaxing fun filled summer days!
P.S. I have a VERY special post saved for tomorrow! I truly can't wait! :D
