When my life batteries are depleted (life batteries? Did I make that up?), there’s one thing I like to do more than anything else: shop. Where, you ask? Value Village and other thrift stores! They’re cheap and you never know what you’ll find. Thrifting is not for everyone, you have to enjoy the hunt, which I DO. I always have a plan, too: it could be cardigans, bags, dresses, skirts, shoes one day, or dresses, housewares, sleeveless tops, shoes, bags and jewelry another day. And every season I have a running list of the things I’m looking for. This season it’s burgundy or forest green heels, a green pencil skirt, a fit and flare trench…and a few other things. On top of that, I look for things I always want more of, like cute cardigans and dresses, belts and scarves.
There’s more involved and I’ll do a full post on my shopping tips one day, but those are the basics. Today I headed out to do a little thrifting and found something on my seasonal list: burgundy heels! All is right with the world once more 🙂
