Summer Memories

One more day until the weekend!  I'm heading home this weekend, which means orthodontist appointment (yuck), thrifting with my cousin, and going out to eat with my family (YAY!)

Today I'm going to share a little flashback. These pictures (except the first) were all taken last summer, by my bestie, Becky. Looking at these make me long for 80 degree weather instead of the wintry/rainy disgusting-ness, I'm experiencing today.

I bought this dress at a thrift store in the town where I go to school, that unfortunately closed last year. They had a back room full of clothes and you could fill a bag for $5. So, two friends and I would go and split a bag (or sometimes two!) When the store closed, their entire store was fill a bag for $2! This dress was one of my finds from that day; I fixed it up a little and I adore it!

Have you ever gotten something amazing from a bag sale?

Before! 

After!

Love the alterations that were made - the dress looks great! Pretty color on you too :)

I am a huge fan of thrifting, and I love seeing the potential in things most people would have passed up!
