I’m super thrilled to announce that my 2nd “Pretty Thrifty” event will be held at Thrift Store USA! I shop here every weekend, and I’m never disappointed. This store has a huge selection of clothing, accessories, housewares, furniture & much much more! Come out and join us for an afternoon of fun festivities. We have a few activities planned including a Scavenger Hunt & Celebrity Style Capture with cool prizes up for grabs. If you attended the last event in May, don’t forget your Young & Thrifted reusable tote. Here’s a RECAP of my last event at Best Thrift in Norfolk, VA. “Pretty Thrifty” at Thrift Store USA will be even better! I look forward to seeing you there!

Birthday Suit

This month the Ahead of the Curve Bloggers topic is Bare for Summer, so I decided to show off my BIRTHDAY SUIT! On July 6th I turned 23, and celebrated with a weekend of festivities including a trip to the beach. I wore a vintage Sea Waves bathing suit and pink clubmaster sunglasses, both ordered from eBay for less than $20. This bathing suit is flattering, super comfy, and I didn’t have to keep adjusting it all day. This allowed me to enjoy my beach day to the fullest. I didn’t get in the water, but I walked along the shore and sun bathed for few hours. I couldn’t have asked for a better way to kick off my birthday weekend!

 

 

Here are some plus size vintage bathing suits I found on Etsy:
