sress: thrifted cardigan: thrifted belt: thrifted shoes: Target
Have you ever seen a competitive thrift store shopper? Oh you'll know when you see one. As you nonchalantly flip through the blouses one by one, taking your time, she's right behind you, eyeing you, furiously launching clothes to the other side of the rack trying to get in front of you. Each thing you put into your cart she stares you down with the look of the devil and you know you just picked something up that she likes. She's got that crazy look in her eyes like she's been trapped at home with the baby all day and she just might snap and murder you if you get to that periwinkle blouse before she does.
When I found this dress there was one of those girls right behind me, and I swear I saw her eye twitch a little when she saw me pick the dress up. I saw it and I kind of gasped a little (you know because all beautiful things deserve a gasp) and then the lady went completely still and held her breath as if that might make me not want the dress or something.
Yeah right lady! I took that thing and I took it good!
she pursed her lips and once again that look of the devil was directed straight at me...the rest of the half hour that I was in the thrift store.
So have you had any encounters (of the third kind) with the crazy twitchy ladies at thrift stores? Because honestly, they have me pretty terrified...and I think they eat children for supper.
