My teen age self and a challenge for fashion

A quirky thing I used to do when I was a teenager was to throw my YM magazine on the bed so that it would land wide open on whatever page. That whatever page turned out to be my inspiration for what to wear to school the next day. It was such a fun challenge to try to recreate the outfits I saw on the pages. I was all about finding the look in my closet. Or find it for much cheaper. Same idea but on a budget. Hence my love for thrift stores.
So with all that said it brings me to present day love for my monthly subscription to Lucky Magazine. September issue is FANTASTIC. So many great fall looks and I knew right were to find them on a dime. So my friend Jess and I hopped in the car and headed to our local Goodwill Emporium. You should of seen our cart. It was a mountain of clothes, shoes, accessories such a funny site. Why we had only one cart for two ravenous girls was crazy but we made it work. It was so much fun and I couldn't believe that I found everything I was looking for. I tell ya if you are a thrift store junky it can be hit or miss. But that day was a HIT! So here are some photographs of the treasures I found. I apologize for some of the photos but I was so excited I just had to share my finds with everyone.

I am in love with these lady like ruffled tops and I was happy that I found two very beautiful ones.

Also in the magazine was this homage to menswear flats, laceless oxfords and rugged boots. LOVE them and found some very similar ones for only $3.99 and $7.99.
