Sometimes bloggers forget...

I started going through pictures on my computer and deleting some that I no longer need and I came across these! Completely forgot I had taken them with the intention of posting around Christmas, so better late than never right?!

That's my story and I'm stickin too it!

I found this dress while thrifting over Thanksgiving with my mother and sister in law. It's originally from Macy's and still had the tags on it! I paid $3 bucks! Hellooooo deal! The shirt is also thrifted from last year with my mom. I gotta be first when my mom suggested I buy it I was thinking to myself "This looks like a kindergartner finger painted a sweater". Now my mom is all about bright colors and I am usually a little more reserved but this here blog is about trying out new things so I decided I could afford to pay $2 for the shirt and if I hated it I wouldn't cry over $2 doll hairs. It hung in my closet for almost a year but I knew as soon as I bough the dress that I wanted to pair it with the shirt. I think by itself the shirt is too busy of a print for me but paired with something else it looks good!

What do you think?

PS: I'm thinking of making Thrifty Thursday's a regular series on the blog, I'd love your feedback on whether you think it's a good idea and something you'd like to see more of. I was thinking twice a month I could post on deals I find!
