urrday I'm thriftin'

On Saturday I travelled to my most loved thrift store with a miss kirsty reid. It was a lovely day filled with thrifting, laughter, and blizzards (**note new fav blizzard: chocolate chip cookie dough WITH brownie pieces,, K is a genius...). This certain store was not at it's finest however I did manage to pick up a few gems. I got a nice collared multi colored striped t, a gray pair of trousers which are a thing of beauty, a number of scarves, and an old man sweater which is also pretty GREAT (ha.. kirsty..). I saw a dude trying this old man sweater on and I knew I had to have it so I prayed a little and hoped he didn't dig it as much as I did and turned out he didn't. I think he was turned off by the mock turtle neck, which was pretty gross, but I plan on doin a bit of snip snippin. no biggie. Anyways here are some photos of the purdy scarves. They are cute.

On a completly different topic I'm going to go back in time to the wild night of December 31, 2007. There was masks, there was dirty dancing, and most of all there was great pals. I FINALLY got a new camera and found these pictures on my memory card so come on with me and take a journey back in time...

I wanted to buy this beautiful head piece from rag pickers but it was only for rental. At least I got to spend one magical evening with her though...it was great. And she even called me the next day.

The fine ladies of Tjejsajten in full form and apparently Lana's move of the evening.

playground love.

Seventeen days

In seventeen days I will be traveling to Thailand with one of my great lady friends Sara B. We leave for our adventure on May 1 and return June 9 (one day before my twentieth birthday and four days before hers). Words cannot explain my excitment. The beauty, weather, culture, food, beach, history, and...shopping. Oh the cheap, cheap shopping. I plan on buying an ourtragous amount of clothing, interesting knick knacks, and whatever other special items come my way... I also plan on changing my heritage via tanning while vacationing. I will return a black woman.
