I got this awesome flowery, short sleeve vintage top by Frejani with puffed sleeves, shoulder pads, and a thick black elastic band around the waist and the outer half of the sleeves.  So cute.  I’m not sure what decade this hails from, but I love it.  Here is a close up of the tag and the pattern:

I also got this great eye glasses pin, $3, I am in love with it, it even has the little fake string to hold eye glasses around your neck!

I should have taken a picture of me wearing it to show the full size, but it is no more than 2″ across.  Not too large.  And now my bosom will be able to see oh so well:)  20/20 I hope.

H&M plaid shirt, $4.99:

I thought you might want a few different angles.  Dizzy yet? 🙂

I love the blue color, it really makes my eyes POP.  And you can’t beat the price, as always.

My last purchase was a great faux leather brown purse, with a gold placard on the outside pocket:

And me modeling it very well.  I think I missed my calling as a purse model…

I only got this purse to get myself up to a $20 total.  This is because I have a 25% off discount off of one purchase over $20 because it is my birthday month (yay!).  Now because I find such great deals, I don’t go over $20 a lot in one purchase, so since I was already buying everything else for $15, I knew that (being the math prodigy I am) 25% off of 20 was the same as $15.  So whatever else I picked out I would basically be getting for free (if it was around $5).  This purse was $6, so it seemed as good as any, if not better!

Lastly, I forgot to take a picture, but I got a large hard cover book about photography for $3.  It is old enough that it doesn’t even have tips for digital cameras in it, but I still thought I could garner some basic photography information from it.

So the grand total for all of the above items….was, drumroll……

$16.73!!! (after 25% birthday discount).

Not bad for two shirts (one authentic vintage), an awesome pin, a great bag, and a photography book.

If last week was half off week (everything I bought was the half off color of the week and therefore super super cheap), this week was the EXACT opposite.  Everything I got had a blue tag on it, which is the color of all the NEW stuff arriving at that Goodwill this week.  Meaning, it has two more weeks after this one before it is the half off color of the week.  Too long to wait for such cool stuff.  Too long.

Thanks for stopping by.  Happy thrifting!  Please go out and support shopping second hand, your fashion addictions, and all the good causes that Goodwill and thrift stores in general support in so many ways.

Love, Jaime
