So after looking at what I will be owing on student loans starting next month I have decided to change my spending habits. I am trying the absolute best that I can to shop exclusively at thrift stores. I love them anyways, so it wasn’t a hard decision. That being said here are some new finds with prices!
Love this shirt! It was only $1.75 at the Salvation Army! The purple is so complimentary to the red and blue. It fits perfectly and will work with pretty much anything in my wardrobe which is what you need to look for when spending on a budget.
This dress is incredible. It has to be from the 70’s. The tag is yellowed as are the buttons. No worries! Replacing buttons is one the best ways to spruce up a piece of thrifted clothing. The dress cost me a whopping $5.
The next two finds I like to think of as fate. They are both B’s, which is my first initial. I saw the pin at a Goodwill and impulsively bought it. It was only $3. Such a cool find.
Next to the pin is a necklace from the Green Eyed Lady in Kennett Square, PA. It cost me $14, a little high but I settled for the B after I checked out the price of a pin I had been wanting… $90. Sometimes you just have to talk it out in your head and tell yourself that $90 is way too much for a pin.

I have been really loving the sheer, see-through look lately. This top is from TJMaxx and most people would wear it over a cami or tank. I decided to wear it over a bralette/corset from H&M. It was covered just enough that I didn’t feel like a hooker. I will be experimenting much more with this concept during the summer.

Yesterday I got to see my kind and beautiful friend Kelly get married. She was my first friend to get married and it was lovely. I do have to say that the feeling was strange, like we are growing up. I feel like just yesterday I was playing wedding with Ken and Barbie and now people my age can and do get married.
Sam, Kelly, Moi
As you can see, she looked beautiful. Sam and I didn’t look to shabby either.

From the time I was in first grade (they were kind enough to spare the Kindergartners uniforms) until 12th grade, I wore some type of a school uniform. I was in Catholic school from 1st-8th grade followed by public school with a strict dress code from 9th-12th grade. Looking back, my wardrobe was repressed during most of my childhood into young adulthood. I always enjoyed picking out my “fun” clothes during those years, but didn’t come into my obsession with fashion until college. Now I know why… FREEDOM! I never understood why people in their pajamas in college saddened me until now. They probably had sartorial freedom their entire life.
Now that I have the freedom to wear what I want, I would have to say I have a very eclectic wardrobe. Just today at various thrift shops, I noticed myself going towards the kookiest things. Now I am not saying that people can’t have eclectic wardrobes if they never wore uniforms. What I AM saying is that I feel that wardrobe repression can lead to very creative fashionistas. I was starved for beauty. I am surprised I didn’t go blind the first time I walked in Forever 21 with all the COLOR. Shocking I know. My Catholic school girl uniform consisted of a hideous dark gray skirt with the weirdest plaid lines. On top we wore white polos or white cotton long sleeve blouses. It if were cold we could wear a maroon cardigan or sweater vest. GAG ME.
The year before I got to public school they passed a dress code. JUST WHEN I THOUGHT I HAD MY CHANCE! We were allowed to wear black pants, navy pants, gray pants, and of course (most ugly) KHAKI pants. Skirts were allowed as long as they reached an appropriate length. Yours truly ended up in ISS quite a few times for hers. For tops we were allowed white, black, navy, red, gray, and (DRUM ROLL) PINK. They added pink during my time there because the dress code was sexist or some bullshit.
BLINDED BY THE COLORS!!! Can you imagine my face at the thought of neon green tights or a hot pink skirt? I knew these types of clothing existed but not in my “school” life. Now I wear sequins, feathers, and neon on a frequent basis. So glad I am out of that stage of my life, it was quite miserable. BRING ON THE COLORS! What do you think about school dress codes or uniforms?

P.S. I am hoping to start a summer blogging series on local restaurants and outfit ideas about what you should wear to them.

I have always had a love for sunglasses. I have about 20some pairs and used to have a lot more. Today I will be posting some of my favorites.
This first pair are from Target. Target has done an amazing job with their sunglasses line, the color of these Way-wannabees is so much fun.
The next pair were a great find from TJMaxx. They have the whole cat-eye look which is very popular right now. So much fun.
What can I say, very Lolita and totally not for everyday. They are just something I think every girl should have.
These polka-cuties are from H&M.
These are from Forever 21. I love the simple, yet chic look one can achieve with these.
These were a gift from my boyfriend, Michael. They are real Raybans that are no longer made anymore. They are so bright and vivid.
