A Wonderful Floral Find!

Who: Amanda of The Upside of Wonder

What: Blue sleeveless floral dress

Salvation Army in Austin, TX

How Much:

When I Use It:
As often as possible! The fact that it’s lightweight and sleeveless is perfect right now. I’ve always said, you don’t know hot until you’ve spent a summer in Texas.

Shopping Tips: Always keep an open mind when going to thrift stores. When I was younger, I would go to thrift stores and think “All of this stuff is ugly, it’s all too big or too long or missing buttons.” Now I know that all of that stuff can be fixed in minutes with a needle and thread. I can’t tell you how many things I’ve revamped with my sewing machine. Not to mention, it gives you the chance to personalize your own clothing! What could be better?
