With Easter finally hopping in tomorrow, Lent is coming to a close. Thank goodness! I gave up thrift shopping for Lent because it was something that I loved to do, and to me, I find it important to give up something you really like or love in order to show your sacrifice. For me, that was thrifting. But now that it’s over, I feel like I have put thrifting back into perspective. I can’t afford to shop all the time, and when I do shop, I need to keep it within certain restrictions.
That being said, I do have some trends and pieces that I want to try and find in my next Goodwill excursions.
Mint and coral colors are very very in right now, and I would love to jump onto the bandwagon. I could very easily turn these colors into work appropriate pieces, summer pieces, and generally great-for-any-time pieces. Sounds like a win!
I have such a craving for different handbags. I am the type of person who gets stuck in a rut with handbags because I almost never change the one I have every day. Shame on me… I really need to get better about that. I am on the hunt for handbags with color, structure, and just all around appeal.
I want some spring and summer dresses because, well, I want the warm weather we got a little taste of back. Now, please! I love the feminine touches dresses bring to a season, and I want some that aren’t incredibly dressy. I mean, I’m not going to cocktail parties all summer, and even if I was, a girl needs some variety, am I right?
Like handbags, I am craving some bracelets and necklaces. I want different pieces that bring a little bit more intrigue to an outfit. I tend to get compliments on my jewelry the most at work, and I can tell you that most of my collection is super cheap costume jewelry. Why not see what else I can add to it?
It’s getting brighter. A girl needs glasses. Enough said.
This, of course, means I need to give myself a pedicure, STAT. But who doesn’t want to have colorful feet that are cool and comfy?
I guess the longer I stay away from shopping, the more time I have for window shopping. That may not have been a good thing… Time to go clean out my closet!
What are you on the hunt for lately?
