I – like everyone else in the world – love shopping the sale rack. But not just any sale rack friends – I like shopping the REsale shop sale rack.  It’s usually the rack outside in front of the store. I usually find either slightly damaged items or items that normal folks won’t love (I’m a weirdo) – and it’s all usually only $5-10!  I found the below peasant top for $5 at a resale shop last year and LOVE it!

– Gauze, draw-string collar, peasant top with 3/4 sleeves (aforementioned)

– Very light colored Cheap Monday denim cuffed once

– English leather, woven, penny loafers (also thrifted)

Love you, mean it
