Summer 10×10 Remix: Day 1

Hello Thrifters!  Caroline of Un-Fancy and Lee of StyleBee start their 10×10 summer wardrobe remix today, and although I didn’t have time to write up my remix selections beforehand, since I’m already living out of a totebag with 10 items (hello back-to-back family reunions!) I figured I might as well play along. (Click here to see […]

Spring/Summer Thrift List

My spring thrifting was curtailed a bit by my Lenten thrifting fast, but leaving the Goodwill alone for awhile also brought me a lot of clarity on where I have enough and where I have wardrobe holes.  Thus, my thrift list is on the trimmer side this go-around.

April Thrift Finds

This month’s thrifting window was half as long as normal due to my thrifting fast, but I still found some good pieces.  That fast focused my thrifting and I ended up sticking mostly to what was on my (trimmed down) thrift list. (FYI I wrote that list mid-April but didn’t publish it until after the 10×10 was […]

A Tale of Two Outfits; or, Context Is Everything

Here are two outfits I’ve worn within the last week. If you were following my 10×10 challenge, I bet you can guess which felt more “me”:   Left: blouse by Lucky Brand; chinos by Gap; sneakers by City Sneaks. Right: blouse by Talbots; blazer by Charlotte Russe; pants by Alfani; cuff by Monet; wedge slides […]
