JANUARY THRIFT HAUL

Hey friends, how are you? How was your week? My week was great, thank you for asking.  I did not accomplish everything on my list, but I’m learning to be all right with that. My pastor has this saying, “people over ministry” and of course, we know, ‘people over things, or stuff’.  Sometimes, I can become fixated on my list at the expense of people.  But I’m doing better, not quite there, all the way yet, but I’m learning.  Sometimes, people remind me why I prefer ‘stuff’ or ‘ministry’ over them.  ‘Stuff’ and ‘ministry’ stay where I put them, they don’t talk back, they are not deliberately contrary.  If only Christ would allow me to put ‘stuff’ first.  But alas, no such luck, people first I suppose, after all, Christ died for people.  He is working through and with people, He is even; preparing a place for people (imagine that), He wants to spend life with people!  Well… I suppose that’s a good thing because that includes me!   

Anyway, here are a few ‘stuffs’ I picked up when I went thrift shopping with the ‘people’ the Lord has placed in my life.  Do you like shopping with people? Personally, it depends, I like company when I shopped for groceries or household items, but I prefer my own company, when I shopped for clothes and shoes.  I guess you could say, I prefer to shop on my own, when I shop for me.  I picked up most of these pieces when we went to Chicago in December, and of course others came from our local thrift shops.

Love this detail on the dress; this is the back of the dress
this is Maggy London and it is as soft as its beautiful
The cinched waist is everything
this is one of my favorites,

I love to wear dresses in the winter. Just pair them with tights, boots and shirt underneath. Chic, classy, comfortable and cute all rolled into one.

match made in heaven
White House Black Market is my favorite brand for blazers.

Obviously, my passion for blazers has just grown stronger. My baby insist I have a problem, she says I need therapy. But why? So what if I have more blazers than actual clothes? Has no one ever heard of mix and match?! But I’m done now… really… I’m done (I think). Oh! wait… maybe I spoke too soon…
