Dressing On A Dime; The Where In The Heck Have You Been Edition

Hi everyone! I know that I have been gone too long. It has been a rocky three months. Let me see if I can give you the run down.

A. My car was totaled.
B. Our house was broken into twice. They took our laptops, all my cameras and my son's gaming stuff.
C. During all this time, my son's FFA pig had babies which not too long after they were born had health issues resulting in losing half of them to staph infection.
D. We received a $1000 tax bill because my son did not qualify for the child tax credit because he was 17 for a whole three days in 2010.

I could go on ( I am serious there is more) but I am depressing myself and I am sure you too.  So let's move on!  I decided I needed to make a post and dress up and do a Dressing On A Dime segment. Here it goes...

Denim Jacket - Thrifted
Yellow Tank - Wal Mart
Skirt - Thrifted
Shoes - Thrifted
Ring - L.A. Garment District

I love this outfit. It felt light and breezy and I finally felt like summer was here. Seeing how California was still having rain and cloudy days all the way into May and June, I was beginning to think that I would never get to say that. Whew! I will have to remember this post when it is 100 degrees and I am wishing for winter to hurry up and get here.

I hope everyone is doing well.

Happy Thrifting Everyone!!!


  1. What a horrible few months you've had, hope things get MUCH better for you!

  2. You look really cute in that outfit & I adore your skirt!

    Hopefully now things will only get better for you in the future. Enough of the bad stuff!

  3. Lovely outfit to chase all your previous blues away (hopefully!). It's been miserable here in London for days now, does that mean we can say it was California weather?!
