Oh You Thrifty Girl

(Vest: Thrifted, Dress: Thrifted)

My thrifty little outfit. This dress used to be a maxi, and this vest used to be a jean jacket.
But give them a Moptop makeover, and you get this. For some reason, wearing the long floral dress made me feel about 20 years older. So I knew I had to take the scissors to this dress. My boyfriend's mom actually helped me cut it correctly, and add a hem to the bottom. It's like a brand new dress! 
Today, the boyfriend and I will be embarking on an all day garage sale adventure. A town we live near is having a community garage sale where hundreds of houses all have garage sales. I can't wait!
Have a great weekend everyone..and hello new readers!! :)
