Cardigan collection!

Summer is slowly fading away and it's finally starting to cool up in California! Thank goodness because we had a heat wave the week before last. I was a little confused, but I'm used to it :P Anywhoo! I am so excited to be able to use my cardigans again! I have more than I probably need, but they are my favorite thing to buy :) Here are a few of my favorite thrifted cardigans:
I love this cardigan! I got it for around $2 and it's Forever 21. I feel like I saw it at Forever 21 for sale at $10! I don't think I would have paid that much for it. I don't wear it too often because it's kind of bright, but I can always tone it down with a black shirt like this :)

This one was around $2 too. It's a very furry cardigan with cute beading toward the neckline. My dad really liked this one, maybe I'll wear it more this year, I don't think I had much to wear with it last year.

This one is so cute! It was on sale for $2 (once again) at a little thrift store in Hilton Head, South Carolina. They have a whole bunch of good thrift stores there! My mom and I were so surprised because it's kind of a rich area, but there were jaguars in the parking lot of one thrift shop we went to :P

I have gotten so many compliments on this cardigan, and it's perfect for summer nights. I love the lightweight feel. I think this was around $3? I've worn this one a lot over the years.

I love this cardigan! Haha i seem to love all of them don't I? Anywhoo this lightweight cardigan still has  shoulder pads because I didn't think it looked to bad with them on. The huge buttons are probably my favorite detail, well that and the pocket :)

Can't wait to find new cardigans for this fall! Happy thrifting! :)

Friday Findings!

Hey everyone! I had a good week :) Well except for the whole Monday coming home and doing the work I missed while being in Orlando... Anywhoo! I'm back in the throw of things and it's going to be busy these next few weeks. I got a part in the school play as a zombie and apparently zombies go to practice about 3 days a week.  I am not complaining though! I am so happy to be in a play before I graduate. It's something I've always wanted to do, but never had the courage. It seems that now that I'm a senior I am thinking less about what others think and more about how I think. Thank goodness! :)

So today I asked my dad if we could visit my favorite thrift store (Amvets) and he said yes! I think he's getting a little weary of thrifting every weekend, but we haven't gone in a few weeks. Anywhoo it was super busy but I managed my way out of the chaos with some pretty awesome finds.

Necklace: gift
Shirt: $14.50 (Forever 21)
Skirt: $3.98 (Amvets)
Belt: 95 cents
Shoes: $3

I LOVE THIS SKIRT! The zipper is hidden and the print is so cute :) I forgot to take a closeup of the print, but it's  kind of vintagy looking.

They are wooden and surprisingly comfy! I feel like I'm going back to my  European roots when I put these on :)  I've been wanting some wooden heals and for $3 I think I did pretty well!

Super cute belt! Has really nice detailing and it will go well with  a red tooshorttobeadress-tolongtobeashirt thing!

Alright well those are my find of Friday! Now I encourage you to go and find your own treasures! Happy thrifting!

Thifting in Orlando, Florida

This lamp is so cute! We got the shade for $1 and the lamp for $3.50.  A lamp set for under $5! 

I found this cute raincoat for $2! It's in really good condition and I don't have a raincoat so there you go!

This little sign was 50 cents :P super cute

These shoes are so vintagy looking! I fell in love and they were only $1! What a steal! I love wearing red shoes with just about anything

I kid you not, this cardigan was 25 cents. It's the red version of  a blue cardigan that I wear all the time. I love this!  I might be able to wear it at my school with a strict uniform code. (I'll sneak it in under my fleece when it gets cold :P)

Anywhoo! I had so much fun in Florida with my mom! Happy thrifting! It's time for me to catch up on school work.
