I've kind of been getting back on the thrifting train. I suppose it's partly due to the fact that nothing at a regular store has excited me in a while. I've been finding all kinds of little gems from things for Birdie and myself to knick knacks for around the house. I took a break from it last year when my obsession started to get a little out of control (I had a big problem with saying no to china and our kitchen cabinets were bursting at the seams). I'm being more selective now and buying things that are truly unique and that I think will enhance our home. 
So last week I came across these hand sewn shorts at Goodwill that were just my size! I could hardly believe it! The print caught my eye immediately and the cut was exactly what I had been looking for. 
So in essence yay to thrifting and amazing finds!!

  3. i am just like you with the china, thought due to my tiny apartment i had a very hard cut-off point. i still have a few more pieces i have to get but isn't it insane that there is so much 2 or 3 dollar intricate, beautiful plates in this world and people eat off of white crate and barrel everyday china?! baffles me. i have a set color scheme (the china has to have yellow/gold or blue in it) and i freakin' love it. so thrift away my friend!

  4. I adore this look :) You're a pattern-mixing queen! I haven't been thrifting in a while, but seeing that I'll soon be moving into my own Student app / studio, I might need to browse the thrift stores to see what little gems I can find! :) xo
