Thrift Shopping

On my way home from school on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays I pass by a store that just opened it is a thrift shop.  Today, I drove by and pressed my face against the glass and it was confirmed at that moment that I will be going thrifting tomorrow!  The items were not that bad looking, and I am excited to see what I can find.  Earlier today I went to a different thrift store near my home and found an amazing woven type dress that I would have turned into a maxi skirt.  The fabric reminded me of something that Missoni would send down the runway.  I was about to snatch the dress up until I touched it and realized that a suspiciously gross type film came off of it.  Uhhh ewww.  So needless to say, I did not buy it and left to get a cappuccino that I was over charged for and it was made wrong.  That all kind of stunk, but today the weather was so gorgeous and warm which helped to remind me that spring is not that far away! That makes me so excited for the hot weather and to start wearing spring trends.  On that note, I have already made my shopping list of items that I hope to find, no matter how oddly specific some of the things on my list are, you never know what you will find.  I hope to find anything with a busy pattern, bright colors, cool t-shirts, or high waisted denim.  I am also just looking for good fabric in general.  I told you that is a very general list but it helps me narrow my thoughts to know what to look for.  Here are some patterns from the past spring 2011 runway, that are acting as my inspiration...
