Jacket & Boots: Target
Tee Shirt: Urban Outfitters
I went to Value Village with my friend Sheldon. I think I have found my new favorite store. It was huge & had everything. I didn't have a lot of time to look through everything but I found a lot.
This jacket was only $2.65! I'm in love.
I bought a dress, 3 blazers, a leather jacket & a wool coat all for $28!
Tips on Going Thrifting
1. Dedicate at lot of time. You have to have time & patience.
2.You want to look through everything. You don't know what you might miss.
3. Pick up things that you might not normally wear. This is the time to have fun. You never know when you try something on it might actually look really good. And You would never know that until u try it on.
4. Look for imperfections. Everything in a thrift store is from a previous owner and my have stains or holes. And if it does have imperfections make sure it's something you are able to fix like a button missing.
5. Try everything on. Don't let the size on the tag fool you. Sizes have change through out the years. So make sure it fits. Fit is very important. If it doesn't fit don't buy it unless you are able to take it to a tailor. I'm too lazy for all that. lol So I only buy things that fit me perfectly.

Black Leggings/Pants: Wet Seal
Necklace: Forever 21
I had a very busy day today. First I went to the Goodwill yay! I got a lot of good stuff. Then I went to the mall. I bought mostly accessories. Like I need any more. Forever 21 has the best accessories. I'm wearing one of the necklaces I bought today in the pictures. Then after the mall I went to Little Five Points with my friend Sheldon. It has a lot of vintage shops. Which is right up my alley. All I got was a unitard from American Apparel. I can't wait to wear it for my birthday.
My sister had her baby today. Yay! So I'm an auntie again. She had a boy and he's six pounds. Little Brayden. I can't wait to meet him:)

Blazer, Skirt, Footless Tights & Belt: Target
Lately my hair have been looking pretty shitty. I have a mini mullet going on. And that's not a good look. I usually cut & style my hair my self but it's gotten so bad that I can't do anything to it. So I decided next week I am going to get it done. Especially since my birthday is coming up. My birthday is on a Tuesday so I'm going to celebrate it next weekend. I can't wait to go out. I have a dress and everything. I'm so excited.......about parting. But not about turning 26 urgh. I guess we all have to get old.
