Every Body every wear: Nifty Thrifty

Deep in thought about what I'm going to share below (:
Today I saw a five year old holding her two month old sister while her mother was shopping. Da hell!!!!!!!!!!! Yes I did and I'm still saved. I was appalled *crickets*. Baby's head was being slung here and there. I high tailed it outta after I yelled because she almost dropped the baby who immediately started to cry. . And we wonder why our daughters think having babies are like having dolls. I H.A.T.E. seeing young girls with a baby on their hip. I say let a little girl be a little girl as long as you can keep them thinking it is cool.

I did get a chance to rock my new Aldo Goodstein wedges. I checked today and the price has gone up. Glad I made the purchase when my some of my favorite shoeaholics on Twitter encouraged me to. Get em' while they hot. I'm all for everyday low prices even if the store isn't Wal-mart. I've been stepping out of my comfort zone and wearing shorts. Most of them have been cutoffs and short. I found these cuties at either a local Goodwill or Salvation Army. I'm sure they were no more than $5-$10. I'm leaning more towards the latter. The gold belt was $4 and the bangles are a random mixture from various stores. I get accessories from Forever 21, H&M, New York & Co and anywhere else I can find them.The Salvatore Ferragamo handbag is also a nifty thrift. I had the strap repaired but it broke again today. Funny store, someone tried to buy it in Zara. I had it lying on the table. Confirmation that it was a really good find.

 I'm still being a homebody. Some days I feel guilty but the truth is I really needed this break to rest and get ready for the upcoming school year. If you keep up with legislation regarding education you should know we work hard and the expectations are becoming more stringent with less funding. So I'm resting my mind and planning in my head. 

Before I continue, please disregard the way my melons look. I need to find a bra I can wear with tank tops cause this strapless one sunk. If anyone can get me in contact with Farrah from Teen Mom who just got a breast implant PLEASE don't hesistate to email me. Serious...no jokes...why not tap into the money source while available cause I sure ain't got it like that and I work 180 days every year. 

I purposely wore this today to participate in the EBEW challenge. I almost wore an orangy colored tank. Next time I do a remix with them I'll try color on color. I'd like to wear them to work with heels. What do you think? Is the length appropriate? Any other suggestions for rocking a nifty thrift?

I love this look cousin! I'm inspired by looking at all your fly outfits. I'm trying to step out of my Mother Earth/hoe s**t look. LOL. As soon as I get another job, I'm going to really try to push myself "fashionally". Keep up the good work!

This EBEW challenge was an extra this month for whatever reason (shrugs) but definitely was a win for me. I love taking old stuff and adding my own modern twist. Yes, I'm inspired from other bloggers and magazines.
This one I was really confident with. It was such a chill look for a fun day of shopping with the kid. We got some good stuff at H&M but my feet were dead afterwards, lolol. Xo!!

I think these would be great for work. They are a great length and an even better color. It wouldve been so hot to put on an orange tank with these too!
