This week, Aubree challenged her readers to wear something they’d either thrifted, free~piled or got for cheap and since I love a good sale, this was a relatively easy challenge for me. Just about every outfit has an article of clothing that was either gifted or purchased on sale. I haven’t ventured into the world of thrift shopping yet but I’ve seen some incredible purchases from others who have, so I know one of these days I’m gonna have to hit up a consignment shop or two.
What I Wore Thursday: Just Hangin’ Out
What I Wore Sunday: Going to Church
What I Wore Tuesday: Parent~Teacher Meeting
Do you shop in consignment shops? What’s the best purchase you’ve ever made?
Makeup Free Monday is hosted by The Beauty Bean as an initiative for women to celebrate real beauty. I love makeup almost as much as I love shoes but I also like encouraging women to embrace their natural beauty. Confidence is beautiful, makeup is the enhancer.
If you decide to participate in Makeup Free Monday let me know in the comments.
Monday Mingle is hosted by Jenn at Eighty MPH Mom. If you’d like to participate, simply create a short vlog in which you answer the questions and then hit up the linky. Don’t forget to grab the badge and leave some comment love for your fellow participants. After all, isn’t that what mingling is all about?
This week’s questions are:
1. What did you do for your Sweet Sixteen birthday?
I don’t think we did anything special for our sixteenth birthday. We probably just had cake and ice cream or something but I can’t remember us having a big ol’ party or anything.
2. What do you think of little girls dressing like adults for pageants (think Toddlers and Tiaras)?
I think it’s incredibly stupid and borders on child abuse. Who in the world thinks it’s adorable for a toddler to shimmy and shake his or her non~existent boobs. And what parent in their right mind teaches their child that their value depends on their exterior? I think I’d feel differently if parents weren’t spray tanning, flippering and wigging out their kids to the point where they look like 3 foot tall showgirls.
3. What kind of car did you learn to drive in?
I learned to drive in a Mercedes, kinda sorta. But I got my driver’s license in a Pontiac Fiero, it was a pretty sweet ride that I paid for myself, thankyouverymuch.
Next week’s questions are:
1. What are some fun attractions near where you live (farms, amusement parks, etc.)
2. Where’s the last place you and your spouse went alone?
3. Are you happy the kids are back in school?
There is no story to go with these wedges. I saw them, I wanted them, I don’t wear them. That is all. Well, no, that’s not all. I don’t wear them because they cut off the circulation in my legs because I tie the straps so tight. I tie them tight because if I don’t, they wiggle their way lose, slide down my ankles and cause my shoes to make that clickety~clack~slish~slish sound that shoes make when they’re half on and half off the foot. So they sit, in my closet only to be pulled out for random photo ops.
To participate in Shoe Style Saturday, all you have to do is
So, come on and show me your femme fatale flats, those sexy stilettos and pin~up peep toes, yes, even your racy runners.
And don’t forget to grab my badge!
