I thought I was done with overalls after the black ASOS pair but these Liberty ones spoke to my vintage denim loving heart. I don't feel like I'm heading to Gymboree in this one. They have a close fit but it's not too tight. It shows off curves but in a casual and relaxed way.

You definitely should not make a habit of buying thrift store clothes that don't fit properly. Since I sell a lot of what I find, I don't try things on in the store anymore. I picked up a vintage muumuu dress in Palm Springs not knowing if it fit or not because it's fish fabric. You can't so no to a fish dress. I ended up having to downsize and refashion into a simple maxi dress.

I am so in love with one of my latest thrift finds. I found a vintage floral duster while I was in Palm Springs. It's bright and colorful. Long and cozy. It's light enough for summer wear and keeps the air conditioner chill away. I wore it to brunch and felt like one of the Golden Girls in my pastel colored ensemble.


Besides the long length on the coat, I love the huge pockets that can hold all weekend essentials -- sunglasses and keys.

There are some thrift store pieces that really capture my heart. Either I wanted them for myself and it wasn't a good fit for me or my lifestyle or I knew that someone else would love it and I must get it in that persons hands. The past month has been fruitful with fun little gems that also turned a decent profit on eBay, Poshmark, or Etsy. These are my recent favorites that found new homes.

1. The denim jumpsuit I thrifted in Florida. I wore it once and then it sold.

I've found that my clothes sell faster online when I wear them versus when I put them on the mannequin or laying flat. That's what inspired today's thrifted outfit. I usually wear the clothes that fit and and look good on me. I also treat it as a chance to play dress up in outfits that don't have a place in my lifestyle. Today's dress up is a vintage jean skirt. Love the style but it's a bit too small.


I've had it in my Poshmark closet for a year. I originally had it posted with a collage of button front denim skirt outfits found on Pinterest. I wanted to show how awesome and on trend this skirt could be. It got a lot of likes but hung out in the Posh closet through all of the seasons without any bites. I actually had three of the same style and two others that were button front flared that all sold. Obviously, I have a thing for jean skirts.

I bought a shirt dress on Poshmark that was exactly the style that I turn to in summer. It's long. It's cotton. It's easy to throw on.  Plus, it has pockets. The measurements seemed about right in the description so I took a chance on it. The chest and back area turned out to be too tight. That button at the chest could pop at any second and the one at the waist could go too if I eat a big meal. I made lemonade out of lemons with an easy upsize trick.

The We Dress America campaign is a ground breaking new fashion campaign that caters to all. No matter where you live or your style. Walmart has a fashion find for you. It doesn't discriminate and the prices are pretty affordable. This jumpsuit speaks to my personal style. It's currently on sale making it even more of a steal. Glad I nabbed one before they're gone!


This is the second outfit I chose from the spring collection. I scrolled through jumpsuits and rompers and fell in love with the color of the Animal Button Pinny Jumpsuit. The orange color is muted and has some brown to it so it's not super loud and blends well with my skin tone. I was thrown off a little bit by the styling on the website but I really like how it looks on me.

Spring has sprung (sort of) and I took the opportunity to check out Walmart's We Dress America collection. I am ready to show more leg and bare my arms. The new spring line is fresh and on trend. I am absolutely in love with all of the yummy looking pastel accessories and as well as the array of styles to choose from -- florals, brights and so much more.

One of the great things about thrifting is that you can feel good about experimenting with styles and trends that you normally would not try. For me that is overalls. I love a jumpsuit but I've never owned a pair of bib overalls.
