Thrift Haul: First Edition

         I am a firm believer in thrift stores, yard sales, clothing swaps, and consignment stores. If I can get nice, possibly name brand, clothes for a good price, I'm hooked.  My mom and I go thrift store hunting a lot, and this past weekend was one of many romps. We actually went to one of the stores that we tend to have bad luck with, but I actually came out with some pretty cool finds. I went in with low expectations and came out 2 pairs of shorts, 5 shirts, and a pair of heels later.

Red Shorts: $4.96

A personal favorite of mine, these shorts were affordable
 and high waisted (which I had been searching for!).
We almost died, but the cool 'in the road shot' was worth it

Red shorts = Red lips
 "We'll play hide and seek, to turn  this around"
Denim collared tank: Hand-me down from mom's good ol' days.

 Shorts: Originally from Old Navy (Possible cost: $22.94.) Purchased from DAV (Price $4.96 )

Brown Shorts: $6.96

I was in dire need of these bad boys.

I had so much fun doing this photo shoot! These are my best friends in the entire world and there is no one else I would want to be photographed with on a humid day in June. A special thanks to my amazing best friend behind the camera that somehow managed to make us look photogenic... It's a mystery really. Thanks so much Savannah! I'd love to hear about you some of the things you have snagged from thrift stores, yard sales, and/or your mom's blast from the past, so please share in the comments below. There's nothing better than a conversation about a great deal!
