It’s a Thrift Store Fashion Show!

Yep, I pretty much said it all in the title. My daughter and I took a little joyride to the thrift store today – a Saturday activity I like to indulge in when I can find the time – and we found lots of fun little gems that we just had to display for everyone. Of course, me being me, I couldn’t wear anything I bought in a normal way, so I kooked it up a little bit for y’all.

In addition to the Broncos mermaid fin blanket I made for my daughter today (yep it’s for real, take a look at the end of the post).

I think we’ve drained our quirky creative juices dry. Damn, I meant to get some writing done today…

Oh well. Here you are, the tops, vests, and skirts we pulled off the “previously-owned” rack today and made into model-worthy outfits (or something…)!

She really does want Taylor Swift to take her to New York. That’s a flashlight in her hand, btw. She wanted to pretend she was exploring.

And then me – always dramatic as shit. Shout out to my Broncos – yeayaaaaaaah!!! (we’re gonna get creamed, but my love will never fade).

She’s a serious model folks. Just like Hello Kitty.

I tried, I failed. But I’ve always wanted to pull off a vest over a layered t-shirt. Maybe next time?

There’s my sweet little girl. There will be no growing up around here!

That sweater is ADORBS but uncomfortable as hell. Meh, it was 99 cents.

She totally came up with that pose all on her own. While wearing a “Girls just wanna have fun” t-shirt. Sigh…don’t tell Daddy…

And last of all, here’s that Broncos mermaid blanket I promised. Yep, it has been quite a day. And now my daughter is relaxing to the sound of “The Phantom of the Opera”.

Sigh…my husband never had a chance…
