Hello, readers! Here I am again after taking a week’s break from the Thursday Thrift. The weather just went straight to warm. It was a partly sunny day with a high almost in the 80’s. A perfect day for polka dots, a little bit of flowers, and orange!
This week I have another Goodwill find. I do most of my thrift shopping there. It is the biggest thrift store in my town, and there is always something on sale. I found this last year, and it was one of those that needed a little bit of touching-up. I didn’t realize this until the first time I wore it and noticed part of the serged seam was hanging down. But, seeing as I haven’t fixed it yet, I guess it isn’t really bothering me, and I may never get to it! (It is sometimes a pain to get all of my sewing stuff out, change the thread on my serger – because the thread currently on the machine is NEVER the thread that I need – just for a few stitches of repair. Either that or I am just lazy. With sewing lately, that might be the case. I have a to-be-fixed pile that is growing faster than I am getting to it.)
I am fulfilling my bright clothing requirement for the day with an orange top. I really think I like orange more than I like yellow. It is such a pretty color! The top was not thrifted though, just a good deal from Kohl’s – I love that store.
So, for this week, a thrifted dress and a new-for-used-price pair of Doc Martens from ebay – I love that place as well!
Hopefully the weather is warming up where you are, and some of the sundresses and warmer weather clothes are starting to come out from hiding. Although, I tend to wear sundresses year round, only with tights and sweaters, it is nice not to have to bother with those.
How is the weather for you? Is it spring yet?
