Adventures in Goodwill Hunting

Heres a few snaps from a little outing Curty and I took in Santa Monica. We spent the day running around, drinking loads of coffee and of course shopping! It was one of a few really nice summer days. LA seems to have sort of skipped summer this year. We hit up the local Goodwill shop, which Curtis was quite used to. I on the other hand had never really ventured into one before. I first strolled through women's shirts and was feeling pretty uninspired. I remembered what other fellow bloggies have said and headed towards the mens department. I came across a pair of mens diesel jeans, threw em over my shoulder and headed back to women's pants. I (w) as well as (e) Abby are petite so finding pants in our length is somewhat of a victory. Not all women are 5'7! I stumbled upon a pair of navy trouser pants and couldn't believe my eyes. Threw em over my shoulder and high tailed it to the fitting room. I was in the mist of trying on my finds sort of buzzing in the excitement when an old grumpy lady bangs on my door asking me to hurry up. Rude! I quickly (feeling the pressure) threw my clothes back on, headed out and gave the lady an F U look. Curty even heard from across the store and we both had a laugh about it. Sheesh. 

At the end of the day I was really pleased with my finds at a random Goodwill. Jeans will work well french cuffed, (yeah I said french cuffed) boyfriend style. Trousers are awesome. Belted high waisted and tucked into with most anything. Thrifting is quite addictive, now I can see why. It somehow makes your finds that much more special.
