Now on to the Special Edition...
I had the pleasure of spending a WHOLE DAY with one of my best friends...she is the fitness inspiration behind the blog Get Up & Go (you must check her out if you have not!) and she was coming to town for work and asked me if I would give her a PRIVATE Thrifters Anonymous Session...obviously I was ecstatic and I planned our whole day!! I even took her to a Thrift Store I had never been too!!!So...get ready folks cuz this may have been my best work yet...lot's of photos and finds! I told Sarah to wear tight clothes and to tell me her goal for the day.
THE GOAL
GOAL

The first stop was the Thrift Store I had never been too..kinda scary neighborhood but some pretty awesome finds...then we headed off to SAVERS for Sarah's first time...haha

Item #1 that I found was a onesie jumpsuit...Sarah looked at me like I had just asked her to run around naked, which after seeing what I had found her she would have rather done...UNTIL I yelled at her and forced her to try it on...umm it fit her like a glove...and she looked so sexy...and this was OVER her clothes!
Jump Suit $5
 Thrifted $5

Item #2 was a Vintage Dress...a true "Oskie Woskie." This Dress from SAVERS was my favorite item I found for her...ABSOLUTELY Stunning...she looked like she came straight from Sex in the City...it fit her perfectly...I can't wait for her to wear it!
Item #2 An Oskie Woskie

Item #3 Thrifted Blouse $4
Thrifted $4
Obviously she bought more than 3 things here are a few more from the scary thrift store!!
