Happy Birthday, America!
I bought me a present!
For the 4th of July, Goodwill stores had a half off sale. 50% discount on pretty much everything they sell.
Because I was in desperate need of new pants, and, also, because I'm deeply jealous of Bella's thrifting finds, I knew I had to take full advantage of this sale.
I ended up hitting two separate Goodwill stores. I stuck to the racks designated as "plus size" because even attempting to look through the rest of the racks is just heartbreak waiting to happen. I ended up grabbing anything within my size range that struck my fancy, instead of being "realistic". I tried everything on. I kept nothing that would "probably" fit "soon"*. I stepped definitively outside of my "fashion box".
I came home with jeans, capris, blouses, skirts and a dress.
I came home with a pair of Harley Davidson motorcycle boots.
Today I wore them with a pink skirt and a white sweater.
I may start doing outfit posts because, for the first time, I feel rather fashionista.
And all of this glorious, fashionable fun for less than a pair of new slacks from a Boutique Fatty Store.
*Ok, technically I bought one single, solitary item that doesn't fit yet. Because it will by fall, when it's geared towards, and I have loved this style for years. And for the possibly $2 it cost me, I'm willing to chance never ever wearing it.
