So today's post is dedicated to one of my first Thrifting obsessions and love here in Las Vegas... GOODWILL! 
I am so excited and honored to be a part of this first annual Blue Party! I will be walking the runway wearing a re-imagined design by Wanda Potter Merritt, a local fashion designer!! She is absolutely incredible and designed the gown I wore for the Dress for Success Fashion Show here a couple of weeks ago!! SO, if you are here in Vegas GET YOUR TICKETS NOW!!! I can't imagine a better way to spend my evening.... Fashion, Food, Live Entertainment, Vendor Booths, Auction Items and so much more! 
Sneak Peek at her design!

When I first started this Blog I was inspired by my mom... who loved fashion and loved to express herself through all things vintage. When she passed I immediately began sharing all of her beautiful things...and found my love for thrifting once again. While thrifting at a young age was for necessity I am blessed today to be able to give back to my community and volunteer on behalf of all who are in need. Goodwill is a perfect combination offering jobs to those in our community and allowing the community to give back to them. 

Thank you to Aldo Mencatto, Las Vegas fashion designer, for gathering some of the best designers in town and getting our models ready to rock the runway, as well as Jessica Milazzo and Walter Lescano for making what I think will be a party we will be celebrating for many years to come! 

SO.. Let's take a trip down memory lane shall we... my love for vintage and fashion certainly hasn't changed! Some of these pics are recent and some are over 2 years old! Enjoy my travels to Goodwill! and I will see you this Thursday at the #Blueparty

Hi, My Name is {Your Name HERE} I am addicted to Thrifting!
Thrifters Anonymous
Here is how it works...

  • In the "Link it to" section, leave a link to one specific Thrifters Anonymous post from the past week or week prior...doesn't matter...

  • In the "Title" section, tell me what was thrifted cuz you were super excited about your outfit or new couch . An example would be "Thrifted Belt, handmade skirt, & shoes on sale!

  • That's all...and there is no judgement here...everything is worthy...and believe me once you link up you are officially a Thrifters Anonymous Member...FOR EVA..ha ha ok..or as long as I am doing this madness..

  • If you miss the link up or do not have a blog Link up to my facebook and share! I would love to see your finds and meet you!
  • You can also check out my Youtube channel for Hauls, stylings, and more!


  1. What great finds, and I know you are going to have a blast at the Blue Party just as I did at the 2014 Goodwill Runway Show in February. I love how you made each thrifted find your own. Have a wonderful week and happy holiday!

  2. That green leather skirt is so awesome! I love Goodwill too...


  3. I'm reading a lot of posts on Birks these days, they are definitely the trend now. She has the exact same Birks I had but mine is probably crumbly, last time I wore them was when I was in college.

    Amazing Goodwill items. I love my Goodwill too and so happy that I can't bear to pay retail price now. Enjoy your fashion show!

    Thank you for hosting and allowing me to share my post!
