Thrifting is a Treasure Hunt

Hi hI agian!
Yesterday I went thrifting to a gillion and one thrift shops/estate sales! It was awesome. I was on a roll, if I must say so myself :) For the first stop, we stopped at a giant, old house in the Highlands. A HUGE estate sale. Although everything was extreamly overpriced. I mannaged to buy(well, i didnt buy it, my mom did...what can i say? Im a jobless 14 year old haha) this incredible floral fabric for 3 dollars. I might make a skirt out of it...What do you think? (the pic is posted above). I also got a great vintage scarf that smelled like old lady when I got it, I deffinatly washed THAT right away! bleegh. Next stop was Hand in Hand Second hand store(man, thats alot of hands). I had an incredible find of a old denim vest(which is banana republic, when it first opened-1980's or so) 3 bucks yay yay! Then at this old thrift shop ran by old Jewish ladies, I got a very bright Xlarge blouse. I knew I could do something with it(add a belt to give it an empire waist, tuck it under pants, ect). I got some brooch's, and a dress that I will DIY in the future into a mini dress(the pattern is YUM), all at Unique Thrift Shop. Yup, that's my weekend for yah! I was just super excited about my finds! :) Do you like them? What can I do to give the peices "uummph"?

Ciao Cheers GoodBye

Cut-Off creation

On Friday I tured my old jeans into some shorts. They are not as I expected-i would of liked them to look like they have better quality. But I guess spending 10 minutes all together making them showed, haha. I also got a new tee shirt from Forever 21. Its my absolute favorite right now! It has numerous old vintage casette players on it. :) Just the shirt for me. I also put a measuring tape around my waist for a belt. I am thinking about making an accual measuring tape belt i saw from a blogger a while ago(i dont recall the blogger's name though) Here is a few pictures I took out of boredom.

Stupid Hard drive!

Hello everyone! I started high school was pretty interesting. I wore a-less-than-unique-outfit which included faded out skinny jeans, black converse, a vintage tee, and a feather necklace(which, by the way, snapped in half during Algebra 1, i had to put it away. And I STILL cant fix it!!!! Agh Forever 21 can have very cheap quality!). I was appalled to see most people wearing trashy boot cut jeans from Kohl's and Hollister tee's (gag me with a spork before i gag myself, please? haha). That seriously is my PET-PEEVE!!!! I mean, PEOPLE, GET A PERSONAL STYLE! READ A VOGUE FOR GOD SAKES!!! Ok, now that im done rambling about my irking towards mainstream prep stores....How do yo feel about people wearing clothes from Hollister/abercrombie/ae/aero? Yah, they have good jeans, but really, why label yourself with a shirt that says ABERCROMBIE written all over it? We aren't Cambell's Soup for crying out loud hahahaha.
For my electives, I got Visual Art(which seems so cool, and so does the art teacher). Our first assignment is to create a bug model out of scraps around the house, the catch is to fit the bug/insect into a baby food jar. Blagh, easy assignment. :p And by the way, I wont be able to post any pics of my outfits cuz the harddrive is messed up, so It wont be for a week or two :(

see yah!

Family Guy

Well, the family and I were watching Family Guy on Fox one day, and I realized that Stewie is the bomb! haha, really! So much so, that I have decided to impersonate him(talk and act like him) Its so funny because i sound just like him! My brother does a great Brian talk haha. Its funny in our pea sized brains :)"Shut up, Brian!"
And i've decided to wear skinny jeans, a pendent necklace and a graphic tee for the first day of school tommorow....

Yay, my first blog post *golf claps*! Today I got all dressed up and did a "photo shoot" in the backyard. My little brother was the photographer(so there was many pictures with my foot cut off, or my face blurred :] ). Hmm...Since I'm bored and have nothing else to do, I'm going to write a little about myself. For starters, I love fashion(but I guess you know that, because this is a fashion blog). Thrifting is like treasure hunting-i love it. You search though allot of crap to find this amazing piece of clothing that no one else has! Plus its DIRT CHEAP, how can you pass that up? That's right, you can't :) I enjoy art, drama, photography(I was the mastermind behind the barbie doll picture on the top of the blog :P), laughing and fashion magazines. In fact, I would highly enjoy to work in a fashion magazine when I'm older and get out of college(Vogue, Teen Vogue, Elle, Harper's Bazaar, etc.). Ugh, I start high school tomorrow :( I'm not ready to go back to school! Blaaghh! And I really have NO CLUE what to wear for the first day.

Bye for now!
