New Year, No New Clothes......

First and foremost, happy VERY belated new year to you all and happy February!  I didn't make any resolutions for this year, but I do plan on cutting back on shopping (gasp!), and so far, it's going pretty well. I've decided to join Looking Fly On a Dime's "Thrifty Threads 365" challenge- yep, no new clothes for a year!  Last month, I spent about $37 on items from Family Thrift Center, and I got quite a bit of stuff. Also, at my local Goodwill Outlet (click here for my first experience there), I found about six items, including a London Fog trench similar to this one and a Ralph Lauren bathrobe, for a total of $7.55 (average of about $1.26 each)! I didn't post everything, so check out some of my fave pieces from my hauls.

Banana Republic striped top $4.99

polka dot top $1.00.  This top is a tad bit too large, but I plan on cinching it with a belt or tucking it into a high waist skirt or pants


tropical print blazer $1.99. Tropical prints were a big trend last summer, so I was a little excited when I spotted this on the rack.  Sure, the print is a little busy, but I think I can work it out.  I also plan on changing the buttons out.  I'm not really feelin' the buttons that's on it....

dolman sleeve top $3.99


If you follow me on Instagram, then you saw my post of me wearing this top that I've found at the Goodwill Outlet, with my $1 nautical-inspired earrings.  This top is becoming one of my fave pieces in my wardrobe.



plaid blazer

raffia purse.  This is perfect for spring/ summer!


I also plan on shopping my closet a little more, because I have some pieces with tags still attached that need to see the light of day (shame on me!).  Let's see how I do with this challenge.  Hopefully, it goes better than my failed $50 per month shopping challenge....

Ummm...did I just read that you won't be (gasp!) shopping for an entire year?!! Of course my favorite find is that cute nautical top. I wish you all the best in your year-long challenge, I know I couldn't do it, I'm weak, Lol.
