Treasure Hunting:

Yesterday I enjoyed a wonderful afternoon of thrifting with one of my fav cuties, Alex. We pretty much hit all of the Gainesville hot-spots, and found some great things along the way. I think I spent a grand total of $25. Here are some of the treasures I found:

First and foremost, I can't be happier about the amazing wooden coat rack I found! I've been desperately searching for one of these for soo long, and I finally found one. It's going to be covered with my favorite scarves and purses in no time.

I found this black blazer for $2! It's identical to the "Urban Renewal" blazers at UO.
I think that I am going to cover this one in vintage brooches.

Another $2 blazer. I like that this one is long, and you can't tell by the pose in this picture but it is really slim-fitting. It's my first grey blazer. I wish it wasn't so hot out!

Here is a great clutch that I found for $2 at the bottom of a huge bin. I love it because it is really textured and has brass hardware on it. The best part is that its huge, so I can actually lug all of my stuff around in it. I also found that cute little grey, reptile embossed belt.

See...muy grande.

Ok, these may be my favorite find...VINTAGE BLOOMERS!! I love these and I am so glad that I finally found a pair in hot pink! The bottoms are lace ruffles and the top is all rouched. Do you think these are too rediculous to wear out? I'm honestly not sure if I care, they may just be too cute not to actually take out on the town. Either way, I will cherish them.

Well, those are my latest gems. Have you guys had any luck thrifting lately? I've been having a pretty good run this summer. Things are getting a little hectic now that it's getting closer and closer to my trip! I need to start preparing my packing list. Well, I've got a date soo, good night! Oh, and about the hair...all I have is dinky iPhone pictures from the day I got my hair cut, so I guess I can post those until I get some better ones. My hair has grown into a pretty nifty 80's poof. Well, comment with your thoughts, they're always appreciated.
