I hunted the store grounds for roughly 3 hours until closing time; but I'm disappointed that I only looked through half their sale section cause everything was an additional 50% off. I had the mindset of going back the next day to finish where I ended... but I didn't know if it was worth the gas and miles when a new Forever 21 just opened in my city, but that story will come along just a little further down this post. I ended up with a big yellow bag filled with 3 cardigans, 3 tanks, 2 shirts, and a tube top for a total of about $70. Believe it or not the 2 shirts cost me $35 and my heart bled a little when they were scanned because everything else was half off. Outfits for these will be posted soon hopefully, once I finish all my school work and exams :( Oh the life of a senior.
Waking up in bed as a human popsicle, snuggled up with my teddy under the blankets, I proceeded to yelp local thrift stores to spend my day off wisely. As mentioned earlier, I was planning to revisit the Forever 21 I was at the previous night, so I told myself that I might as well look at the thrift stores around that area that was walking distance in order to save gas. I got up and dressed for the chilly morning that eventually turned into a heatwave after my arrival at my designated destination, but thank goodness for nightfall where temperatures dropped and my outfit became weather appropriate. Here's a little outfit of the day for you little cuties:
During my journey, I ended up going to two different Goodwills and broke my Salvation Army virginity in such an embarrassing way. The doors on the side of the store had no handles so I assumed it was automatic; I proceeded to stand there expecting the doors to open but they didn't. Confused, I awkwardly began pushing at the doors and this little girl inside was just staring at me, shaking her head, and refusing to open the door for a newbie like me; maybe the store was closed or something was what I thought. I then took a step back in despair, and looked ahead because the future is always brighter, and it was! I noticed that the entrance was on the other side after seeing people walk out from the lot with bags filled with clothes; red faced, I power walked inside hoping to fulfill my shopping lust. Spending 3 hours of my beautiful day thrifting I snagged up a bunch of dark hues hoping to match the upcoming winter season:
