Hello, hello!!  Welcome to my SECOND blog post.  Woot, woot, I'm practically a pro!!  (NOT!).

My name is Sila  (how do you do?).  When I'm not juggling a couple of jobs, motherhood, girlfriendhood, and pet ownership, I'm usually at a thrift store, or planning my next thrift store, shopping spree. 

The picture below shows me in a thrift store changeroom, posing for the obligatory, outfit photo. 

Chambray shirt (Aeropostal, $5 thrifted), mommy jeans (Joe Fresh, $5 thrifted), long cotton/acrylic cardi (Northern Reflections, $8 thrifted), faux calfskin belt (Old Navy, $1 clearance).  Shoes were purchased new at Nordstrum Rack $80

I love thrift shopping, yard-saling, charity shopping.  Second hand is good. 

Accessories, long beaded necklace (Bianca Nygard, $5 clearance), chevron, semi-precious stone, necklace (Value Village, $3, thrifted), gold dangly earrings (ebay lot, $1), blue heart glass ring (European Jewellers, $30).

For the past year or so, I've been finding huge amounts of clothing and accessories at thrift stores.  So, instead of going out and shopping some more, I'm going to document what I got, and what I plan to do with it.

I hope you stick around for the ride.


Thanks for popping by.
