As I mentioned in my last post, today was the beginning of exams for me. After my psych exam, I had about two and a half hours until my next one, so I went home to get some lunch and a quick review, but on the way there I remembered that there was a new (well, it's been open since summer, but I forgot about it until I saw a sign the other day) consignment/ thrift store RIGHT across the street in the shopping center by my neighborhood! I honestly wasn't expecting it to be anything too special, the most exciting thing in that shopping center is Rite Aid. When I walked in, I think my jaw might have dropped.. literally.
I wish I had my camera with me because the shop is so adorable! It's small, but completely filled with (mostly) vintage items. The clothing selection was pretty tiny.. I did find a stunning equestrian-style blazer, EXACTLY what I've been looking for, but unfortunately it was a bit too big and I feel like I could find one with a better fit somewhere. I found this cute little owl in a section filled with lots of knick knacks! Along with all of this AMAZING jewelry...
The leather on this watch is actually alligator leather.. it's gorgeous.
This photo is a bit deceiving.. if you can't tell, this is a necklace. The gold feels so durable and luxurious! The clasp to where the knot hooks broke off, but I'm sure I will find a way to fix it.
The necklace in today's outfit post is also from the same shop...
Shirt: Old Navy
Black Jean Leggings: Jolt
Just as I finished taking these photos, I went to upload them and I hear the doorbell ring and figure someone will get it, but then I hear my brother yell "BRITTANY! Flowers!" YES! I love getting flowers! My boyfriend is so sweet.. flowers just because! The pictures didn't turn out too great because it was starting to get dark.
