Cardigan: Thrift $7, Dress: Costa Blanca $10, Shoes: Payless $13, Sunglasses: borrowed from my sister
Aren't these sunglasses awesome?! i just love the gold on the top, i borrowed these from my sister when i very conviently forgot my own at home and it was super bright out. She bought them at a Value Village for about two dollars and i am so jealous :) i totally need to find a pair. So it has been a really long time since i have posted a really girly outfit. This is definitely more my old style then what i would describe as my style now, its funny how fast those things can change even when i look back just a few months ago. I have had this dress for literally ages, three years maybe, when it starts to get tight then i know i definitely have a problem!! I remember i found it for the awesome price of ten dollars and when i came out of the change room my friend told me she hated it. I totally disagreed and bought it anyways, the funny thing is now she actually likes it. I hope everyone had a wonderful day!!

Jacket: Thrift $7, Tunic: Thrift $5, Leggings $10, Boots: $52
These aren't the best photos, i was in a downer mood today and you could totally tell in my pictures, i kept making dorky faces so these were all i got. It rained right before i took them so i included my "ohmygod i am stepping on a worm reaction" (third photo), they along with frogs are the slimy things i absolutely cannot stand they just creep the crap out of me!!!! I bought this tunic a little while ago, originally i actually got it for a beach cover up which i thought it would be perfect for but i really like it how it looked with my jean jacket so it is definitely going to be used for a variety of purposes. I just want to thank everyone who wished me luck on my date which i mentioned in my last post. I swear the nicest girls are those on the blogosphere i really wish i could meet everybody in person :). Anyways it i had a really good time he's a funny guy, we saw Thor which i had been dying to see (the shirtless scene was uh wow impressive) i would totally recommend it just to see Chris Hemsworth since he is mighty goodlooking!! Have a lovely day everybody!

Blazer: Thrift $4, Shirt: Bootlegger $5, Jeans: Value Village $10, Converse: Thrift $7.50, Belt: Thrift (it is super old)
So this outfit is super simple but i love it just the same. I definitely think sometimes i mistake simplicity for being boring which is so not the case!!! There is something so chic about a white tshirt and blue jeans. I got these babies at value village and have pretty much wearing them non stop since. The two things i dislike about jeans is that fact the absolutely EVERYONE wears them constantly were i live and i can never find any to fit my very muscular thighs. These ones were nice and stretchy which thankfully solved that problem. I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend, i am actually going out on a date any minute now :) so wish me luck ladies!!

Shirt: Value Village $10, Shorts: Thrift $4, Tights: $5, Boots: Spring $42, Jewellery: Ardenes
These outfit photos were a bit of a struggle to get!!! The neighbor was outside in his yard...again i swear he is out there every freaking time i take photos, i generally try and duck somewhere out of view. So after i did that my camera died after about thirty frames so i was really pleased i had enough pictures for a post!! This is a really simple outfit, i totally love the asymmetrical hem on this shirt, i think polka dots are right up there with stripes and florals for being my favourite type of print. The list of blogs i follow in my blogger dashboard hasn't been working for about a week now so i am totally behind on blog updates!! I really hope that gets fixed soon although i finally figured out how see them using google reader. Have a lovely day everyone!!!

Leather Vest: Thrift $3, Tshirt: Buenotes $7, Skirt: Fairweathers $15, Tights: Ardenes $3, Sunglasses: gift, Boots: Thrift $42
I am sorry that these photos are a bit whited out it was super sunny!! i did my best to edit them to look better but they are still a little washed out and i swear my leather vest is not shiny :). I bought it about a month ago and it was finally warm enough to wear it out and about this week. Lately i havent had the best luck in thrift stores but today my sister and i were in the city for a doctors appointment and i found some lovely things at the Value Village!!!! i got two pairs of blue skinny jeans since i have been loving pants alot lately, a striped over sized shirt and a black fringe crop top which is quite possibly the coolest thing i have ever found thrifting (promise to take photos soon) for a grand total of $28. It is so hard to go into regualar stores after second hand, the prices just seem ridiculously expensive!! The brick wall looks completely different in these pics compared to my previous post, i wonder if taking them at different times of day affects the colour? I hope everyone has a great day!!
