Gone thrifting | Thriftanista in the City

Gone thrifting

I went thrifting on Monday. I decided to brave the madness that is Unique's 50% Mondays. Wearing layers and leggings are a must. There are no changing rooms. My bag is huge and not thrift appropriate at all. I can no longer pack light for my excursions. I broke my own rule. I have to take a V "happy and dry" kit including water, snacks, diapers, wipes, and change of clothes.

Surprisingly, I'm not wearing anything thrifted on this trip.





Violet's ready to go.

Maybe one more (with a lovely view of the alley) while she's all strapped in.
headband // fabric store
sweater // TJ Maxx
tee // NY & Co
leggings // NY & Co
wedge boots // Corso Como
bag // 1154 Lill
Want to see what I snagged? I vlogged it!

In other news and shameless plugs....






I'm a Lucky Contributor and would love some votes on my DIY posts. 



I pitched a blog idea to ChicagoNow blogger network and it was accepted. I will be writing about frugal Chicago entertainment and style. I hope you'll swing by my new blog -- Thrift. City. Life and check it out. My first post will go live on Thursday.

Happy Halloween!

So jealous. I have been scouring thrift stores looking for camo pants. Nothing. I refuse to pay $35 for a pair so I may not end up with any!!

I love the print on that shirt as well. Make sure you show the after when you are done with it

Still shy, I'm still on the grounds of my apartment so it wasn't too bad. I always think they're a million eyeballs peeking out of the window saying what is she doing????
