The Big Blue Sweater // Thrifting Thursdays

A few weeks ago I decided that I needed a big, oversized teal sweater in my life. I searched every online store I knew of and came up totally, and completely empty handed. Which was sad. Then, about a week later while my mom and my little sister and I were taking a quick spin through my favorite Salvation Army, what should I see hanging up with the sweaters than this beauty! It had a couple snags I fixed both of them, and now have a completely lovely sweater for only $2!

So here's my thrifting tip: if you're in a thrift store packed with stuff and don't have a lot of time to/are too lazy to slowly and carefully go through everything, keep  your eye our for patterns/colors/fabrics you like. You can go a lot faster this way, while still having some order to your search. Good luck!

  2. I just found your blog tonight. It caught my attention because of the titles being quotes from Sherlock and Dr Who (love both those shows)! But then I looked at your pictures, and read about your faith, and I have to say, I'm captivated! You seem like someone I could really be friends with. I will definitely be checking back on this blog regularly.

  3. I like that color. And it looks pretty on you, so that is doubly good.
    You should do an Amy Pond outfit with it 8-D
