Hi everyone! ♥

Had the BEST luck thrifting today. I go to a VOA in my town which is my favorite store, but it's everyone's favorite thrift store, too which means it's always picked over. There's a lesser liked Goodwill that is pretty darn grimy and I've never found anything there in the past, so I usually don't bother. I was out that way after church though this morning and thought, eh why not stop in? Oh my gosh. I came away with five of the most beautiful, perfect condition, vintage dresses. I was in disbelief of my luck-- it seems someone elderly woman must have donated a bunch of her clothes. I got a 60's embroidered wiggle dress, two 60's flower power maxis, a late 50's/early 60's cotton plaid sundress, and a spaghetti strap sweetheart neckline 70's maxi. There was so much more I wanted, but I don't have a ton of extra money to spend and couldn't get it all. Especially since none of it is for me! None of these pieces fit me--they were either too small or too big so I'm putting them up in my online shop to sell. I'll probably have them up and the store reopened tomorrow and open for the rest of this week until I go back to school this coming Sunday! Unfortunately, I'm not doing international orders at this time because the shipping is just too complicated. I always ended up having to pay a lot extra for shipping international than what I charge, and I feel bad charging so much. So just US for now, I'm sorry :( If you'd like to see the pieces, I have a picture on my instagram @passingwhimsies! 

Ever since my sister and I watched Frozen, she's been obsessed with Olaf. Truthfully he's my favorite character, too! She built an 'Olaf' today while we took outfit pictures. She's such a cutie ♥

With much love, Lauren.

Isn't thrifting the best? Finding vintage is such a thrill. I found a 1940s cropped cardigan in Goodwill one day! I love your sweater in this outfit!

I absolutely love this outfit! So gorgeous... and those leg warmers!! Amazing :)

Sounds like it was a lucky day for you! I never have much luck thrifting, but maybe I'll have to give it another go!

Also - you're little sister is just so cute! :)

I have been stalking your blog for a while now and I must say that the pearl cuff you possess is such a versatile piece. It goes amazingly with so many outfits of yours. Or to put it more appropriately you include it brilliantly in your styling. Lve it. Also those leg warmers are so cute. what a shame, it is this side of the world it's not even cold, pleasant if you may call I but not cold at all. Which makes me sad that I never gget to wear such smart winter clothing.
