Thrifty Goodies

That's right, everything pictured in this whole post cost me $30 from 4 different stores! 

1. Blazer that will dress up any outfit (I need to take it in on the sides a little)
2. I'm a sucker for a gray sweater, especially a long one like this
3. Cute bracelet, and I'm going to make a necklace out of one of the earrings
4. Two sweaters (gray of course!)

On my thrifty adventure I was also on the look out for t-shirts. All my current t-shirts are for exercising, so I wanted one's for casual days. 

And finally, for those who know me well, know that I have to check out the book section. I found two vintage books: German in Context, 1964 and A Book About A Thousand Things, 1946, which is exactly what is says it is. It talks about random things like "Why do bees hum?"  and "Why are policeman called cops?" Seems the 40's version of Google! 

I also bought the first two Harry Potter books because I've been wanting to read them, The Hours (love the movie), and a book about Psychopathology, which will be useful in my future career. 

Thanks for taking the time to look through the goodies I found. If you have any thrift store goodies to share, leave your link in the comment, I'd love to see them!

    these goodies are great. I wish I could find something as pretty as these... :)

  10. How is it that you've managed to escape reading Harry Potter up until now? If it wasn't for the fact that they are super enjoyable I'd try to persuade you not to read them, as you'd belong to a very small crowd...sort of like the few peeps who are not on Facebook.

    Love the wolf shirt as well. Totally can rock that.

  12. OH MY GOD....dork of the day award goes to me....Sorry Breeanna, I had the wrong comment box opened...thought Sheri tagged me, LOL when she was tagging you.
