everything's better when wet


Well, I did have a wonderful outfit for you today (made up of my newly thrifted clothes), but...long story short, I ended up riding my brother's bike (very tall and awkward to ride in a pencil skirt!) three miles home in at torrential downpour. No, torrential downpour is not even the right term. I don't even know if there is one. Let's just say, it's the hardest it's rained in a very very long time. Of course it wasn't raining when I left...no, it was about three minutes after I set off for home. Soaked. To. The. Bone. Plus, my Marie Claire magazine I had just bought (that was in my purse) was completely ruined. I will say, however, that being caught in the rain is such an exhilarating feeling. I was drenched in my beautiful new clothes, riding an uncomfortable guy bike (with a wheel that I'm pretty sure is about to fall off or something), but all I could do was grin ear to ear and even laugh a little. 'Cause you know...once you're already wet, you might as well play...

So, anyways...I figured out what I saved yesterday on my thrifting extravaganza...I saved $135 dollars (from purchasing the clothes in the bag sale as opposed to buying them regularly) and each item cost me approximately $0.76. Can you believe that? I am soooo excited to incorporate the pieces into my fall wardrobe...hopefully there will be pictures taken before any more bike rides in the rain.
