Just throw it in the bag

Tomorrow I get to go to the Charity shop that my mom works at for the first time. YAY! I am so excited! I can just see it in my head now. Piles of random crap that I have to sift through until I find a gem of a peice of clothing. And then another one, and another, man I'm going to be on a role!!

Actually no, that is false. I have never gone thrift shopping before. I know SCANDALOUS RIGHT? I expect to be able to dress fashionably without having shopped at a thrift store?? Ok chill out, I'm working on it, obviously.

Frankly the only thrift store that I have really gone to is the Goodwill near my college campus and really it's only to get cheap clothes to make into costumes for themed frat parties that I won't mind getting spilled beer, or anything else, on. Theres this one shirt I boutght there that is cheetah print with purple flowers. I don't even know why I bought it, I just... have it.There is one good and fashionable purchase that I made there though. It was a pair of black suede boys dress shoes (I think they were boys, I guess they could have been a small mens size). They looked like a pair of flat dr martens that are so popular now. Unfortunately I only have one of the shoes in my closet at the moment so I am hopeing that the other one is still in storage at school or something.

So they look like this but suede and with no yellow stitching

I am hoping that I can score big at the charity shop tomorrow. Or at least as good as these shoes.

Now if only I can figure out where the eff I left the left shoe!

Fun Fact:

Goodwill is not just for clothes, it also provides job training, employment placement services, and helps those with disabilities. There are Goodwill communities in 16 different countries.
