It has taken me four years to finally find the perfect white tee shirt. Not too tight, not too sheer, keeps it's shape, this tee is everything I've been looking for and while I don't like to pay $12 for a tee shirt, it was totally worth it for this one. I feel a little silly about being so excited over a tee shirt but it's exciting to have finally found one that meets my expectations. And dude, can I just gush non stop and excessively over this cardigan? I saw it pop up at the Salvation Army a while back in brand new condition with tags and while I just loved it, I didn't want to pay $40 for it. (Which is cheap compared to what it originally retailed for but still, I'm cheap when it comes to the thrift stores.) It finally hit the 75% off rack this week and you better believe I snatched it up. Not only is it the softest cardigan ever but it's really quite warm, total bonus for me!
I'm pretty happy, I've been very careful about only buying things that I really love at the thrift stores and being very selective in what does come home and I've found some really great things over the past few months. Unfortunately one day was quite depressing! Some lady in town with a rather large wallet and fantastic taste donated her closet and it was full of Salvatore Ferragamo, DVF, Tory Burch, Oscar de la Renta and other fantastic designers, everything was priced dirt cheap and it was all TINY. Size 7-6 shoes, size 2 clothing, oh, it was not a good day. (Well, it was good for the wallet I guess.) I came away with nothing but at least I repaid all of the good thrifting karma I've had lately.
