At Church With Only A Skirt On

Church skirt #OOTD

I basically showed up at church, wearing nothing but my grandma’s old skirt.

And I got nothing but compliments.

When I wear this outfit, ladies ask me questions. It begins with an over-all praise, then their expression focuses. They step back, stare at my knees, and say, “wait. Is it a skirt or a dress?”

Yes.

Spring Fashion Lookbook 2015

Spring fashion lookbook secondhand clothes

Fashion and thrift shopping. Those words make me happy. And the word candy. And the word clearance.

Anyways, I realized I haven’t done a fashion lookbook since Valentines Day, so I’m due.

In case you’re wondering, yes it is still spring. I Googled it.

So bring on the pastels, pearls, and lace! From my second-hand closet, to you.

Valentine’s Day Fashion Lookbook

Valentine's Day Fashion Lookbook

Valentine’s sparks an array of creativity in girls’ clothing, no matter what kind of day their guy has planned. We want to look cute and feel cute and show we cared to make ourselves extra pretty for that special someone.

A few weeks ago, I wrote a post on date ideas. From these have birthed three different outfit choices; a casual look with a Valentine flair, a cute and flirty look perfect for a picnic or movie, and a romantic date night look.

I’ve also teamed up with Emily from thecoloradoblonde.com, who’s created the three different hairstyles featured in the lookbook today.

And yes, every one of these outfits was bought or given to me secondhand.

Mini Thrift Store Haul

Mini Thrift Store Haul

Today is Martin Luther King Junior day. Lucky students, employees, and city workers got the day off.

By pure luck, my entire family got the day off from work, school, and bible studies. And a follow-up question, bright and sparkly, presented itself: So what are we gonna do?

We’re the Koontzes. We hike, and camp, and go to the movies, and eat junk food, and go thrift shopping.

Get Ready With Me – The Beauty And The Beast Show

Beauty and the Beast is probably my favorite Disney movie. I say “probably” because, come on, it’s a Disney movie, can you really choose one?

When I heard that Beauty and the Beast would be performed at my local theater, my ears perked up intensely. When I found out one of my friends would be in it, I was more than interested. When I was told he was playing Beast, I was already checking my calendar and buying a ticket.

Dressing for plays has always made sense to me. I’ve always been the one in the performances which may have led to this concrete thought, but you should dress for plays.

The actors are dressing and performing and giving it their all. Audience members should attend with the same consideration.

Hence, why my Get Ready With Me is to get ready for a play.

Fall Fashion Lookbook

As you now know, fall is my favorite. I love the colors and tastes and smells. I’m a wimp to the cold, but I try not to think of that because I can eat a pumpkin pie all on my own, just give me a spoon and a can of whipped cream.

My closet is generally filled with fall colors, and it being the beginning of October, it is time for me to do a fall lookbook for you guys.

I My First Fashion Video!

I was sitting around one day, trying to think of a clever idea for Friday’s post, when it hit me. I had mentioned in my 100 Followers post that I wanted to do something different. I vaguely brushed over the video idea.

Well, I thought, why not!

$11 Thrift Haul

Because I needed to do something to blog about, I just had to go out and spend money. You guys practically forced me. I had to. I had no choice.There was also a 50% off sale. On the whole store.

Overwhelmed. I was overwhelmed. I’m still overwhelmed!

The truth is I had work for seven hours Saturday morning and didn’t feel like spending the rest of my now-free Saturday stuck at home. My family said there was a sale at the thrift store. I couldn’t believe we were still lounging about the house! We all got dressed, I put what I thought was around ten dollars of tip money in my wallet, and we sped on down to our favorite thrifting spot, eyes wide, lips licking, and rubbing our hands together in excited anticipation.
