This past weekend, I spent some time at the Potter's House Thrift store here in Fayetteville. Its huge and has such a great selection of clothes. Its so fun to find treasures in a thrift store. A year or two ago, I would have never thought to do my shopping in thrift stores, but after being best friends with Kristie, I've seen all the goodies thrift stores have to offer. I bought quite a few items this past weekend that I am super excited about. Over the next few months, I'll be doing a before and after of my thrift finds. I'll show the item as it was bought, and how I styled it after. Fun right? Ha! Enjoy!

I have been looking for a sleeveless button down EVERYWHERE. But all I can find are ones for $25-$45 dollars! And...I'm sorry but, I'm a poor college kid. So, I was stoked when I found this grandma button down (HA! it even smelt like a grandma when I bought it). I just cut the sleeves off, and cut out the shoulder pads (lol), and here we go! I saved over $20 by thrifting this piece and I LOVE it. The color is so bold. I also love the length of it. The top was a little big on its own, but it works perfect because its tunic-length, which is way more flattering on me than a shorter one. So ANYWAYS, theres my thrift before & after! Yay!
