Today marks 3 weeks into the 2nd-hand pledge and it’s going swimmingly! I have only shopped at thrift stores and bought one pair of vintage shoes on ebay that I’m anxiously waiting for.
This weekend, I started giving a friend sewing lessons and that has inspired me to get back behind the machine. We have plans over the next couple weeks to make something from a pattern and also work on altering stuff from the thrift store. I’m excited to get back into sewing and improve my very basic skills!
I have been guilty of a little window shopping though, and here’s a few things I would’ve been tempted to buy without the pledge…
2. Before I started the pledge, I was drooling over mint jeans but couldn’t find a pair that fit well AND was in my budget (hello, JCrew $125 novelty jeans!). Now I’m just going to pretend this pair from ModCloth fit the bill and are in my closet…
3. I have been lovin’ these wedges from Blowfish for awhile now!
4. Seriously amazing collar on this handmade top from Yeye!
So, what I’m saying is that you should go buy these pretty things since I’m not allowed too :)
I’ve been working on my list of goals for the summer, I don’t want to waste this extra free time I have over the next few months when there are so many things I want to learn/do right now. Don’t worry, there’s definitely going to be pool time and fun weekend getaways too!
