bathing suit blues.

Picture 5

   So it's been raining here for the past week and I think i might have to start building an arc of my own.  I'm pretty much sick and tired of it. Where is summer? I need the sun, I need the beach, I need BBQ's and wearing cute summer dresses! The weather is really making me feel horrible and I don't even feel like getting dressed which is something I'm not used to.  I have also been pretty busy thanks to some baby-sitting which I'm pretty thankful for because of the much needed money.  I really am buying way to many things and my wallet can't keep up with it.  I did however spend the day with my mother and aunt and got some things, for free!
With all this rain I don't know if I'll ever be able to wear this outside of my house but I'm praying for a day full of sun! Although I was somewhat apprehensive because of it being white and me loving the ocean I bought it anyway.  I couldn't resist the vintage feel to it! Hopefully it will stop raining soon and I'll be able to wear this to a real beach and not only in my bathtub.

rainy rain.

So, it's raining once again but what has cheered me up is my recent purchase from ebay! I won a dress last night and I can't wait to receive it in the mail.  It has the sweetest large front pockets and is trimmed with blue ric rac.

I was also browsing through ebay and found some other pretty nice dresses that I wish I could buy. All of them having a green/yellow color scheme.

in the middle of the night.

So I went to two thrift stores today, somewhat disappointing.  The first one is a usual for me but today it seemed like the prices of everything went up, by alot!  There were fur capes which I always have my eye on but the prices are just to high for me at the moment and this adorable little purse which I was all ready to buy thinking it was a steal at $2.45 but no, I was wrong.  I went up the pay and it was actually $24.95!  Man, I hate when that happens.  I didn't have enough money to buy it and am still pretty bummed about it.  I also visited a local salvation army and bought some things.  I ended up with two dresses, one blouse, one striped t-shirt, a little girls dress that I wish I could fit into, a smock/apron, a towel and three really adorable drinking glasses with dogs on them.

just a sample of what I bought today.

Cute right? we'll I think so. After reading so many blogs and being in awe of everyone's wardrobes, I often wondered how much you girls think is too much to spend on an item? $10,$30,$100? holla at me.<3333

why hello.


I've had this blog for a few months now and never really had the chance to start it. Not to mention I was somewhat nervous about the whole thing. Well, here I go. I suppose I'll introduce myself. My name is Heather, I am twenty years old and currently reside in New Jersey.  I am a student studying photography but love all things art related.  I am obsessed with thrifting and shopping of any kind, it's sort of a problem, haha.  My room is basically a giant closet and I'm always in the mood to start a new collection. (I'll show you what I mean).
Well, that's enough about me for now.  It's been raining for the past week and today the sun is actually out, except it's alittle to humid for my liking.  I think I may be going to some thrift stores today, nothing new.  You know, spending the money that I don't have.  Oh I also am in the process of putting some stuff up in my etsy store.  I'll keep you updated.  I have some pretty nice things that will be at a reasonable price. You can see some on my flickr, here. Well Thank you for reading and I hope you'll come back!
