Lunch & Thrift Store Finds

I had Lunch with my Mom & Girl M before she started back to school and I remembered to take a photo!

Three generations

Girl M & I stopped into a thrift store before having Lunch and found a few good items.  It's been a long time since I've been to a thrift store. I feel there was a larger selection of clothing size choices.  If I thought it might fit, I tried it on. 

I found these jeans that were a size 14!  I haven't worn a size 14 since about 1992!

Size 14!?!

Not my best side

The pleats caught my eye on this size 12 jacket!  I tried it on and it fit!

I found a hounds tooth jacket , size 14!

I love polka dots and this wide legged knit jumper is sooooooooooo cute!  The fit is perfect and I can't wait to wear it!

I also found this "date night dress".  Knit, crossover front.  It sucks in all the right places and makes me look curvy!

I also found a floor standing Ottlite for $5!

I have to get ALL these patterns organized and entered into my computer.  I am a sucker for a pattern sale!

  1. Nice finds! Love the jumpsuit and date night dress 👍

  2. Bonnie! I can see you have lost some weight; you look great! You found some really nice looking garments at the thrift store. Plus patterns! I need to go thrifting.

  3. WOW what a haul. If I had to pick I'd say I like the pleated jacket the best but it is hard to choose. And an OTTlite for $5. Yipee!

  4. What great finds. Thrifting is so much fun and you really hit the jackpot. You look so wonderful in all of it. Date dress, peplum jacket and jumpsuit are my favs

  5. Great finds! You look so good in them!
