September 21st

Soo...it's official - I am now old. I am twenty years old today. Yes, old news, old Indy. I am a teenager no longer...it's kind of sad. So...this is my new twenty year old self...
(Oh, and I also want to send a hug and birthday wishes to Melsa who turned 19 on September 15th! Happy birthday girl...miss you loads.)


So this is what I wore today...I love the print on this shirt! I got the shirt at H&M a while ago on sale for $5! Yes I did. It was also kind of rainy this morning when I got dressed, so I opted for some sweet (thrifted) Italian-made boots.



So, for a special birthday treat to myself, I took some birthday money and went thrifting (an activity I've had go give up after being poor lately). Let me tell you...I found some of the most beautiful clothes ever!

First of all...the thrift store I went to was only three miles away from my university, but somehow I still managed to get lost...yeah, it took me forty-five minutes to get there. I actually had to stop and ask someone at a rummage sale and the lady was all, "why do you want to go there? All they have is junky stuff." And I was like, "uhhh...could you please just tell me how to get there?" She told me that it was downtown, which I already knew, so she didn't really help. But I found it.

Remember once when I told you about the "bag sale" (one grocery bag stuffed full of clothes for $10, no matter the sticker price)? Well, that's the same place I went this time. I also bought a $25 dollar bag which could have the "white ticket items" (fancier more expensive clothing...or ones with the original tags still on), so for $35, I got two bags full of beautiful vintage clothes (plus four pairs of shoes, seven belts, two purses, and eight hair barettes). I was pretty darn pleased with myself. I am in the midst of finding out the average price per item and the amount of savings, which I will dutifully report to you on the morrow (maybe with some pictures included!).

So...this is my first post as a twenty year old. Pretty epic, I know. It's so epic that I'm even changing my profile pic to go along with my new older more sophisticated and savvy self (maybe I'll realize my new sophistication and savvy-ness in the next couple of days?).
