overall dress

October 12, 2015


I’ve had my eye on these two dresses from Madewell. Of course, I couldn’t get myself to buy it because I felt like I could thrift something similar eventually, and sure enough, I came across this overall dress at Goodwill. Hooray! I love how it’s flowy and the longer length. It looks like I’m channeling summer vibes and I’m sure I meant to that day because it was probably in the 90s. It’s been super hot lately, so while I’ve seen leaves change on instagram, summer seems to be going strong over here. We did have a couple rainy and cold days last week, and that made this fall loving girl happy.

When we go thrifting, the girls are getting better at telling what’s good fabric and vintage. They love trying to see if they could spot something I would pull out of the rack. They’ve been requesting more thrifting of late because they are looking for baskets for when they play Cutthroat Kitchen. Soul is the only that really doesn’t care for thrifting and she often complains when we make a thrift stop, but we don’t let that stop us. Sorry Soul.

on me: dress, thrifted (vintage here, new there). top, homesewn. clogs, lotta from Stockholm. bag, thrifted (vintage here, new there).

    That is so cute that the thrift shop is the 1st place they think of to get baskets!

    Your dress looks fabulous on you. You really suit the darker hair colour and your makeup really complements you well. I love thrifting too and my kids enjoy it too. I haven’t done much of it lately but I’m looking forward to getting into it again. We have some great stores in town.
    I’ve found too, that often when I really want something, and I wait long enough God provides it for me, usually lately the things have been given to me when friends do de cluttering in their homes, which makes me so excited. We share our things at work. When my. Kiddos grow out of their clothes, I bring them into work and I share them with friends who’s kids are younger, and then they go through their closest sand homes and bring in the items and we share out those too. I love it because we all get ” new” things and meet our needs without it costing us a penny. 🙂 greeting s from Australia

      I love how your co-workers bond together! That is such a wonderful example of generosity. I’d love to go thrifting in Australia. I hear it’s quite good there!
