Dress: Old Navy, for .99 at Goodwill

Sandals: Kelly & Kate, for 2.99 Goodwill

Bracelet: gifted from Cape Cod from a lovely friend.

In case you can’t tell, I love this dress AND Germantown, where I took it out for the first time.

On Wednesday and Sunday in my area, all Goodwills sell their color of the week for just .99, instead of half off as they do for the rest of the week.  So I make sure to hit up Goodwill on a Wednesday or Sunday as often as I can.  I can not believe this dress, along with some other great tops, made it to the .99 rack, but I was happy it did.

The Sandals I got last October in CT while I lived there for a brief stint.  Although it was October when I got them, I knew they were timeless enough that for $2.99 I would still be able to wear them come Summer.

I got to go to brunch last Saturday with my good girlfriend Rion at this new crepes restaurant in town called The Red Bicycle.  It is located in a lovely and quaint area of town called Germantown.  I love Germantown.  This street in particular has some of my favorite Nashville restaurants on it, including City House, and SILO which is a farm to table restaurant.  And The Red Bicycle did not disappoint.  It can keep its location on 5th Ave. North in Nashville, TN.

It was adorable, quirky and fun…three of my favorite attributes in a restaurant.

Oh and the food was good too:)

We each got two specialty crepes and shared them ALL!  I like how after we each ordered our first one the cashier thought we were done..no no.  These look too delicious to stop at one.  Thanks,  And were very full after, but not too full to walk around in 100+ degree heat for a LITTLE bit and stage a mini photo shoot.  (Results above;)

Some shots of the restaurant:

Our first two crepes have arrived.  Nutella, and the Highlander, which was my FAVORITE!!! Chicken, gorgonzola, apples and tarragon aoili.

We fit a little talking in there too.

They also had a local photographer’s artwork on the walls, which I feel is always a very nice touch.  Each piece was from a different city around the country, so I felt like I got a little traveling in while eating my crepes.

It was a lovely Saturday and I’m glad I got to share it with y’all:)  Look forward to some more finds coming your way soon… I may just be wearing one as I write this blog…

Happy Thrifting.

$3.

In case you didn’t catch it the first time.  Or second.

The jeggings in this picture are also Goodwill originally by NY&Co., and I got them for $5.99, I think.  You can read about that great find and trip here!

I was so excited when I found these.  As soon as I did, I knew that they were the reason I was meant to go to Goodwill that day.

I really love all of my goodwillfinds, that it would be very hard to choose a favorite.

But if I had to, I may just pick these.

How cute are they??

From the curved stitching on the front and down the sides, to the great half wedge half heel structure, and obviously the awesome burnt yellow.  They are classy and cute.

They were the perfect pop of color to add to this white shirt, blue jean outfit last night meeting friends for drinks, dinner, and a show.  All at the same place.  The Listening Room.  Where I work.

Two of the girls I was out with had shoe envy over these, success 😉

Made me feel even better that I could tell them I got them for $3 at Goodwill.

One of the girls lives in Salt Lake City, Utah, and since she is my size 7, we may have decided we will do a shoe share and mail these back and forth, one month on one month off…gotta stay in touch somehow 😉

The last picture of me is taken at Pour House in Nashville, a newer addition to the restaurant scene here, on 8th avenue.  We ended the night there with one last drink, because us girls, we just can never stop talking right?

In the end, Goodwill never ceases to amaze me with what you can find there, for so cheap, and while supporting a GREAT cause of helping handicapped people find work and rejoin the work force.
