Meet M. She’s one of my favorites I met this past year at my job who has quickly become my best friend. And, as luck would have it, she’s the complete opposite of me physically. I get my jeans in extra-long, while jeans in short are sometimes long on her. We also have different skin tones, hair, and of course styles. I like gold jewelry, she likes silver- the list goes on and on.

When M found out I have a fashion blog, she wanted me to take her thrift shopping and dress her up- especially for summer tops at work. I absolutely loved the idea! Sometimes I get tired of styling myself and I thought the challenge of dressing someone so different from me was something that I couldn’t wait to tackle! We ended up going to two thrift stores spending just around $60 and got lots of tops, a few jeans, and a couple pieces of jewelry- bargain! Here are a few of the tops and jewelry pieces as well as one of the pairs of jeans- enjoy!

She’s so adorable, isn’t she? She has already worn a few of the tops to work and gets complimented often- sure makes me feel awesome! Hopefully more friends will want my help in the near future!

Also, the location where we took pictures was beautiful- it was a random park in town M and I had never been to with plenty of seating, trails, and a butterfly garden. Plus it had a splash pad- definitely going there in August when it gets super hot!

Which top is your favorite? Let me know below!

TARGET IS EVIL HAUL

Okay, maybe the title of this post is a bit harsh, but you know what I mean don’t you? You go into Target with one item you need in mind, and you end up accidentally finding the clearance sections. Before you know it you have a cart full of stuff you weren’t planning to purchase. This exact scenario happened to me last night, and I’m going to tell you about it if you don’t mind.

1346707921506_1123696I didn’t find any cardigans this time around since it’s becoming spring and all the colors that are “in” right now are pastels and highlighter colors. I must say, I’m not a fan. I didn’t even look at the clothes this time. I went straight for housewares first, and the things I found were 50% off and really great pieces for my apartment.

Gold Glass Jewelry tray: I’ve been looking for a piece like this for awhile to put on my makeup desk. It’s perfect to put my watch, rings, and any other odds and ends that I take off at the end of the day. I was worried it might be too light, but with the darker wood of my desk it pops really well.

Gold Glass Jewelry Box: I thought this jewelry box was a nice compliment to the jewelry tray I got- similar in color but different in pattern. Perfect place to hide away jewelry I don’t wear everyday to keep my desk from getting cluttered.

I then glanced at the jewelry before heading to the wallets/purses section. My wallet has been near-retired for the past month or so, and I’m super picky when it comes to wallets so I tend to check what stores have to offer every time I go. I’m not 100% sure if I’m going to keep the two wallets I purchased, but I loved that they were both 50% off and one is more dressy while the other is casual. Here they are!

Mossimo Bird Print Wallet:  This would be my more everyday wallet and I liked the colors and print on this one. It’s a bit smaller than my current wallet, but I also think my wallet could use some downsizing. I’ll give it a test drive and see what I think this week. I’m also not sure about how it opens- I’m worried things will fall out if I don’t snap it shut. But I like  that it’s cloth and the colors would match any bag or purse I put it in.

Merona Wallet with Removable Wrist Strap: This wallet is a bit more dressy, and I’ve been looking for something with a wrist strap option for going out. I’m not sure about the compartment for my phone, though. But I guess if I am out and about with just my wallet, it would be nice to have my phone and wallet all together. I love the gold detail on this wallet, and the border detail on the outside.  Excited to try this one out!

All in all, a successful Target run, as usual.

Question of the day: What has been your best bargain at Target? Anything to brag about?

Have a wonderful day!
