I love the Olympics even though I am not particularly athletic-- growing up I was the hiking-running-dance-horseback riding girl and was probably less than average in each, so I never had a real dream of competing in the Olympics.
Well the real Olympics, that is.
I'd like to think that I'd do pretty well in another type of Olympics, with events like coffee drinking, twitter refreshing, alarm snoozing and thrifting. I'd like to think my latest thrift would have brought home the gold. If I was competing or anything. You know.
But it was honestly one of those days when (almost) everything fit and it was just win after win and I almost hugged the lady at the register in sheer glee. Not all days are thrifting gold; some days I don't get anything good, which is why when Olympics-worthy trips come along, it's worthy of a lengthy post in praise of the haul.
so bear with me as I boast.
why it's amazing: polka dots and stripes and it's Ann Taylor (from like 20 years ago)
why it's amazing: pleated mid-length skirts are my new thing (see me wear it here)
why it's amazing: so good over a swimsuit or with a knit maxi skirt
*not pictured: a white blazer and a pair of floral shorts that were 99 cents... and in need of a major refashion, (which may or may not work.)*
have you found anything good lately on the cheap?
