Chunky Scarf + Dream Outfits

31 Jan

Dear friend,

My sister recently made me this adorable yellow chunky scarf – I’ve been wanting one forever! I’ve been wearing it with everything. Literally.

But I’ve also spied a few items I would LOVE to wear with it. Possible future splurges? I think so.

All of the dainties below are from Ruche. I don’t think there is an item on that website that I don’t like. And that’s probably a problem more than a plus!

And I found these lovelies from ModCloth, which has a different yet still irresistible vibe.

It’s time for me to pick up my own crochet needles and make some more cool scarves before winter is gone!

Until next time,

Thrifting

29 Jan

Dear friend,

There are those people who walk out of thrift shops with arm loads of great finds. And then there are those people who walk out of thrift shops and wonder what good could be possibly found inside.

I tend to be in that second category. I keep going thrifting, hoping to find something worth digging through piles and piles of…stuff. I finally got lucky not too long ago and found this doll of a dress at Plato’s Closet.

There is a definitely plus at shopping at Plato’s Closet, other than the fact the clothes are dirt cheap: the employees sort through the clothes and pick out the best things to sell in the store. It’s like they do the work for you – and for the beginning thrifter that I am, I was more than appreciative to not have to fish through the shoulder pads and old socks to find what I was looking for.

One of these days, I hope to be experienced enough to go to Goodwill, yard sales and the like and be able to come out with those treasures that everyone else seems to be able to spy!

Until next time,

LoveByrd
