Thrifting, Sushi, and Day Drinking Weekend | Thriftanista in the City


Thrifting, Sushi, and Day Drinking Weekend

Due to an awesomely busy weekend, I have no outfit pictures. I wore my diy sequin skirt for my mom's night out but most of the time was pretty casual in my SAHM standards. Here's a look at what I was up to. It was a perfect weekend packed with thrifting, sushi, day drinking and more!

Naturally there was thrifting.

I did some Valentine's Day thrifting on Friday. I treated myself to a  Village Discount trip while V was in school getting sugar wasted at a party. I bought small randoms for $3. The skirt was only .10 so it was basically free.

The next day, I went to another Village Discount. I was in the mood for grimy thrift.  I went with my BFF who dropped in from ATL. It's so much fun thriting with friends. Do you agree? It's double the eyes spying good treasure. I spent $14 and found some great items including a vintage jumpsuit that I'm going to sell. I love the epaulets!

Saw my first theater performance of the year.

I saw a play with not 1 but 2 BFFs! I sat front and center next to GirlGetALife and LadyTerror. We saw Saturday Night / Sunday Morning at the Steppenwolf Garage Theatre. It's a very intimate space and we had great seats watching the ups and downs of the women in Miss Mary's beauty parlor and boarding house in 1945 Memphis.

Partially satiated a sushi craving.

I had the most amazing sushi of my life! I haven't ventured into Agami in a long time and had forgotten just how good everything is! We ate several dishes but the tuna tartare and the garlic delight roll rocked my world. I seriously want to eat these everyday.

Instead of cooking, I brunched out all weekend.

I ate at 2 of the best Chicago spots for brunch -- The Bongo Room and Tweet. I'm a total foodie and I love that some of the best restaurants are right in my neighborhood.

Spent a little time day drinking.

Day drinking becomes a thing when you have a guest visiting. In addition to juicy cocktails with brunch, I also shared my The Naked Grape box with friend and former roommate. Box wine has come a long way and I was happy to share my favorite box o' pinot grigio.

Saw a beautiful bond being formed.

V hasn't seen my best gal pal in over a year but instantly bonded with her. I loved watching Violet fall in love with our family and friends. She's come a long way since their first meetings.
