Thrifty Thursday

11 Aug

And the winner of the jewelry wallet giveaway is…

Congratulations Cassie!  Your gift will be in the mail shortly.

And now on to a Thrifty Thursday Post, I think we are due for one:

A couple weeks ago Jared and I went to our good friends’ wedding in the Twin Cities.

It was a wonderful time to see old friends and have a day without the kiddos, thanks Grandma and Grandpa!  My dress for the occasion came from a consignment shop on Grand Avenue called My Sister’s Closet.  It has a great variety and some very “out” there vintage clothes as well.  I found my dress for the wedding there and it was %10 off $18.   I was very happy to find such a great deal.  But most of all I LOVE the dress.  It was really comfortable, which is priority #1 but also it looked pretty good =)

Here are some pictures of my great deal and the fun day:

My mom let me borrow her black necklace she had previously found it at a thrift store.  Oh yeah and she had bought shoes a while ago but they slipped off her feet so she gave those to me!  So I went to a wedding and my entire outfit cost me $16.20!

the weather was so humid it completely fogged up my lens, darn

Well, that is one of my latest finds, hope you run in to some good deals too!

    SUPER cute! I recognize Jared’s vest, too. Isn’t that the super nice three-piece suit he found at a thrift store? You guys are the cutest.
