Thrifting my Paycheck Away

I went to Goodwill yesterday, and let's just say that I went a little crazy. There were a lot of employees that I had never seen before, and they were all stocking the racks with new merchandise. I usually like to go through EVERYTHING, but after going through just my favorite sections (sweaters, dresses, anything…

Little Red Riding Hood: OOTD

Hello everyone! I really wanted to have fun with my clothes today. This was my first week as an art teacher, in a school where everyone is expected to dress professionally. I've been wearing outfits that are very boring! This outfit felt like a breath of fresh air. It was a bit annoying making my…

Summer is almost over

And it was one of the best ones I've had in quite a while. Summers have always been difficult times for me. I am usually broke. I am usually lonely because my friends live far away. But this year I had a job that allowed me to save enough to get by, and my partner…

A sunny spring day: OOTD

I finally thrifted the perfect blue jeans! I am so excited to show you guys this pair. They fit nice and snug on my waist so I don't have to pull them up too often, and they're very loose and straight in the legs. I've been looking for something like this for months. I paired…

89 Degrees

My computer overheated. The amount of oil on my face could cook a KFC family dinner. MY FEET ARE SWEATING, PEOPLE. It's 89 degrees outside today, and I almost didn't go out to take these photos. I have a bit of an issue. I only have one pair of shorts that actually fit me, and…

Clip on Earrings and “Painted” Shorts

Yesterday was a pretty good day. I got a lot of work done in my printmaking class, and I managed to develop some film in the photography studio. Plus I had an awesome burrito from a place called Cantina Grill (free of cost, thanks to my friend Shannon!) This was the outfit that I wore: a…

My Favorite Etsy Shops

I love Etsy. I LOVE Etsy. I go on Etsy every day. (P.S. That was an Oprah reference. #Bye) I usually don't mind browsing through pages and pages to find the perfect item. But, when I'm feeling lazy I can definitely count on the following shops to find great items: Myron Street Vintage I don't know…

OOTD- 3/10/16

My camera is officially useless! I've had the same Nikon point and shoot for about three years now, and it's been giving me issues for months. It randomly overexposes shots, and it doesn't really focus that well most of the time, hence the grainy photos below.  Let's pretend I was going for that aesthetic ;)…

February Thrift Haul

I've decided to go without shopping at fast fashion stores like Forever 21, H&M, and Zara. It's difficult for me to support clothing companies that aren't transparent and ethical in their practices. Instead, I plan to purchase clothing secondhand online or from thrift shops. The only exceptions I'll make are for shoes and maybe some accessories, because those are the…
