THRIFTED TREASURES: Lucky or not?
This day has been crazy! I went out this morning to ship some packages and run some errands for my dear mother. And guess what? I lost the money my mother gave me to buy groceries! It's a thousand bucks y'all! It's not just a small amount! :( Of course, I freaked out. I texted my boyfriend and my cousin and a friend who's in the area to help me out...and the hero who saved my day was *drum roll* the boyfriend! HAHA. It's been long since the last time he saved my ass from trouble! (Thanks so much bebeboi!) So while I was waiting for the money he's gonna lend me to replace the one I lost, I went to a thriftshop and started checking out every rack. I wasn't planning to buy anything at all--I lost a thousand bucks already, remember? And I'd have to pay the boyfriend back one of these days so I can't possibly be spending anything right now. But when these things are in front of you, up for grabs for a very sweet price, aren't you gonna give in to the urge of buying them and take them to a place where they truly belong--a.k.a. your closet?? To make the long story short, I bought them. So everyone, behold my very first thrifted treasures for 2011! (I actually saw a whole lot more of cool clothes at the thriftshop but I think they can wait! I'll go back there this weekend and if they're still on the racks, it only means they were meant to be mine :)
I know I should be ranting for the money I lost...but how can I be a little whiny bitch right now when my closet has new friends? How can I go complaining about how unfair life is for losing One Thousand Pesos when my dearest blog has already reached 101 followers? How can I just mope around the corner and keep on thinking about how careless I have been when one fierce and fabulous fashion blogger featured me on his blog?
So instead of being consumed by negative thoughts, I'd rather thank the following people:
- My boyfriend: for saving me today and for always being ready to save me everyday!
- My 101 followers: this blog wouldn't keep on running without the people who have been very appreciative of the stuff I do. I couldn't thank y'all enough! I love my followers and readers sooooo much!
- Jeroy of House of Jeroy: Thanks so much for the fashionista feature! The fact that I happened to be one of the many chic peeps you wanna feature on your blog already means a lot! xoxo
