Cute Outfit of the Day: Living My Dreams

Oh, look who wants to be a fashion blogger like his mom! My cat Fudge sneaked out of the house, bombed my photo, then went back in the house! He's so funny!

Gap denim jacket: Goodwill $4
striped top: Goodwill $4
lace skirt: Goodwill $4
shoes: Goodwill $4
clutch: Goodwill $2
necklace: Macy's (gift card) $0
Total Cost $18

Just had another exciting weekend!
On Sunday I held a clothing sale at my house and invited some friends to come over and shop! I had 5 rolling racks with dresses, jackets, and tops. Then I had our sectional sofa covered in pants, skirts, and sweaters. I had about 20 people come out and we just had a great time! It has always been my dream to have my own re-sale clothing store just like my Grandma did so this felt like I was living my dream! I'm definitely planning on doing it again!

Photo: My clothing sale went great today! Still have a lot left though! Let me know if you want to come over and shop sometime!
my "store" in my basement

Today I'm linking up with:

  8. Hi Lindsay, Love your outfit! You have such gorgeous style. The skirt is just too gorgeous - I love lace skirts. Love your photo bomber - our German shepherd loves to come and sit right in front on me when we take photos in the afternoon - then we find ourselves trying to move her out of the way - doesn't always work.

    Have a stunning week.

  12. Found you through the Monday Mingling hop! Great outfit! Love it! How exciting that you got to have a used clothing sale - are you considering opening your own "pre-loved things" shop?

  13. Wow...you have some serious clothes in your basement! Suddenly I don't feel so bad : )

    You do need your own shop. I'm sure you would do amazing.

  22. It's a cute idea to add a lace collar to the striped shirt! The denim jacket is amazing.

  23. What a super fun idea with your clothing shop. Plus, all the shoppers get the added bonus of having a stylist on hand. Great combination wtih this outfit, I love denim and a bit of lace together.

  26. Yay Lindsey! I love the idea of a sale at home. So happy that you're living your dream!!

  27. I have also dreamed of having a furniture re-sale store where I pick out pieces, fix them up and sell them ... I live in LA and there are a lot of pop-up shops where a company rents an empty store for a month to sell their items. These pop up stores do really well here. Also there is a great vintage store near Downtown LA called Shareen and it's basically a pretty raw warehouse space with no dressing rooms. People just try on clothes in the open as no men are allowed. The center of the space has a living room vibe. Mybe you should move to LA and we could open a clothing / furniture re-sale store ;-) www.not-going-out-like-that.com

  28. Great combos ... looking so young and fresh. Lace and denim sets up your bright stripes as two classics looking for a third! Styling in threes!

  29. Nice, love how you put that together. I thought about you last week as I was doing a little thrifting @ GW Boutique. Good luck on the "thrift-sale store"!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Found you through the collective. I love your style. What about offering items you no longer use on this blog? I would LOVE to buy this striped top. I have been following you for a few weeks and you come up with so many great ideas. Very original and chic.

  31. I absolutely love that striped top with the lace skirt. So darling! And congrats on your "store"...so fun!

  32. You look so cute as usual! I need to have a Goodwill hoarding sale myself!! That is the problem with being a thrift blogger!!

  33. This is somewhat how my living room looks. Oh what I wouldn't do for a basement or even a garage. Where did you purchase your wardrobe racks. I found one at TJMaxx a while ago but I haven't had any luck since.
