Cheep, cheep

Wednesday:
Jacket - thrifted
Tank - little boys Fruit of the Loom
Skirt - made of an old man's boxer shorts (yeah, yeah... I know...)
Sandals - Roxy

Thursday - so far, my summer involves wearing waaaaay too many bangles. I enjoy the clacking noise as I'm typing student immunization records for next year. Click. Clack.
Dress - thrifted
Bangles - thrifted, flea markets
Shoes - thrifted Nine West

I might be back on the blog on a more regular basis before school starts... I've been busy for a few weeks. I just finished (as in 2 minutes ago!) my t-shirt order for the Walker Arts Center Gift Shop. Little ol'me. In a modern art museum. 288 individually placed graphics, 288 graphics heat-set. DONE! Let's all do a little jig! Well, after I deliver them tomorrow at 3pm...

P.S. Only working 4 hours a day for only 6 weeks this summer has been endlessly relaxing and fun, but also, I'm ridiculously cheap now! I guess as a "fashion blogger" I should make a big deal about it, and how I'm on a "shopping ban" (which would be a "thrifting ban" for me I guess)  but I haven't bought anything, except for groceries, since June. I went to a few flea markets in early June with my mom, but otherwise, I've been on "OMG LET'S SEE HOW LITTLE MONEY I CAN SPEND AND ISN'T THIS A FUN GAME" mode since school got out. Seriously I'm enjoying it an insane amount.  Who knew being cheap could be so much fun?!?! Hmm, let's hope it sticks.

I'm glad to read you're having such a fun summer and I'm a little envious! Going through a no spending phase definitely has emotional/spiritual benefits, doesn't it?

I need to take a page outta your book, lady!

And CONGRATS on the Walker order! I'll have to swing by and drool over your wares in person.

Congrats on your t-shirt order!

I thought not spending money was going to be really hard for me but, it's been alot easier than I thought... even rewarding at times so I know how you feel :)

Rebecca said...

Congratulations on having your shirts at the Walker. I'll look for them the next time I'm there.
