The sun actually made an appearance in the ‘burgh today, and it was glorious! I can’t remember the last time the temperature was actually above fifty degrees. I’ve spent the past few months consistently working in the depths of my college suite, so today I treated myself to a bit of fresh air. I happily took to the streets with light layers and newly thrifted sunnies.  I found these sunglasses at Salvation Army last weekend, and I just couldn’t resist. Their shape is ultra flattering for round baby faces like mine, and the gold trim is just too cool. Plus, they’re actually dark enough to keep the sun out of my eyes. (Stylish AND effective!) But of course the best thing about these sunglasses is the fact that they were 99¢. Oh, the lovely little things you can find in bargain bins!

One of my favorite rules of thrift shopping is to ALWAYS check out the accessories section before you leave. It may appear small, but most thrift stores price jewelry and accessories considerably well. In fact, many thrift stores in my area make all jewelry and accessories one price. I’m not gonna lie- you WILL encounter some junk as you search, but you’re also likely to find a really cool new piece to add to your accessories collection. Just be sure that you don’t have any specific expectations to meet while you thrift. I didn’t go into SA in search of sunglasses, but I was definitely pleasantly surprised when I found them. Are you pickin’ up what I’m puttin’ down? It’s just always worth a dig!

Have you done any treasure hunting lately? I want to hear all about your own thrifty purchases! updated lipstick blogMad
